A Tommy Sundress Day

I just love Tommy Bahama sundresses!  This one is made of lightweight Rayon and Polyester.  Perfect for lazily going about my day but with a touch of flare, brightening my coastal style for the day.  The design on the top and lower half of the dress gives an ethnic feel.  It makes me feel like I’ve stepped off into another country if just that moment when I see myself in the mirror.  Does your clothing do that for you?  Take you off to exotic places and make you feel like your somewhere luxurious? 

Polka Dot 4th

The sun is out and the polka dots are in!  Here is my little red, white, and blue dress I found at an department store in Bluffton.  Perfect for a classy dinner downtown or a romantic boat ride; I just feel like the perfect princess ready for the 4th.  This dress has an A-line, fit and flare to it.  Flirty and fun, it’s sure to set off some fireworks!  Be careful out there and enjoy some BBQ for me!

Rainy Day Romper

Even though it rained today, the weather in the Lowcountry didn’t cool much.  So I decided to throw on this linen vintage green Romper I found at a consignment shop in Hilton Head.  The cuffs at the bottom of it screams 1980’s.  It is light and roomy in the torso and the legs.  The booties I wore helped to make the Romper look less frumpy and I threw on my red Kate Spade to add pop to an otherwise dreary day.  I hope the fourth is much brighter.  

How to Wear Black During The Summer in The Lowcountry 

On a day like to today, cloudy and wet, wearing black in the Lowcountry isn’t all that bad.  Especially when it’s a little black gauzy dress like the one I wore today.  The dress falls just above my knees exposing more leg, cooling the bottom half of me with the summer breeze.  The dress shape has a trapeze flow so air enters from the bottom of it.  I paired the dress with black open toed boots, just in case it started raining again.  You can get away with wearing booties on rainy days.  Make sure whatever black that you wear is of a light material and not too tight.  You want your body to be able to breathe in the summer air.

Whimsical Lowcountry Style

This is my interpretation of what you will get when you mix Lowcountry style with whimsical style.  Use one piece at a time or dress in it all.  Lowcountry style doesn’t always have to be logo t-shirts and khaki shorts.  Have a little fun!

Morning Blues

For morning breakfast, I decided to throw on my favorite jean dress I picked up at Marshall’s.  I love the embroidery on the front of the dress, keeping with the tribal mood I am in.  It is light and comfortable.  The length of it is perfect as well, falling just above my knees giving it a flirty silhouette.  The chambray blue is a coastal favorite.
