Sigh… last week’s trip to Seaside, Florida was nothing short of a dream! I’m so sad it’s come to an end, and somehow I’m exhausted from a week of laying out by the beach. How is that even possible? Getting back into the swing of things has proved to be quite the challenge, hence the late post yesterday. Oh the trials of returning from vacation!

This outfit was captured in a beautiful town a few miles west of Seaside… Aly’s Beach! The family and I made the short drive to Aly’s for dinner at George’s, one of our favorite Florida spots. (If you get the chance to dine there, the key lime pie is the best I’ve ever had!) I decided to wear this gorgie top (I’m wearing a size S) for the festive dinner, which I purchased specifically for the trip. Isn’t the gorgeous turquoise color and strapless cut perfect for the beach? I can’t express just how flattering the color is. In fact, my sister loved it so much that she borrowed stole it from me for family pictures. (She thinks I should take it as a compliment.)

Playing up the beach vibes of the top, I added this delicate tassel necklace in shades of blue and this mint bracelet. The subtle gold accents of my wrap bracelet and cross body (obsessed with the thing) added the perfect festive flair. Overall, the evening was perfect, and I’m still craving that piece of key lime pie. Take me back!


Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    Hey Kate! I love your blog. It seems the link for the blue tassel necklace is wrong. It took me to a bauble bar monogram necklace. It’s super cute though!
