Yesterday was a magical day! Cornflower blue flowers on a white background suited me well for the day. The shape of the dress, fit and flare, kept me cool during the long hours I waited for sailors to arrive. There was sailors dressed in their own fit and flare dresses and sailors that have written books. Everyone thought my Pop Up was a great idea. Even the men that dropped by thought my Pop Up was interesting. Thank you to those that made it to the event!
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.
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.
This weekend is full of events! From weddings to the Heritage Golf Tournament on Hilton Head Island, I’m inspired to wear my little strapless dress with a bow I picked up for a deal at Marshall’s. It’s length and flare makes it classic flirty. The tribal print gives it a coastal surprise. It’s fabric is relaxed and breathable, making it perfect to dance in and wear on beautiful warm days like this weekend on the Island. Hope your having as much fun as I am having. This dress adds to the fun!

Hope you enjoy the day we celebrate the greatest love anyone has ever given. Today I’m wearing my favorite brand, Tommy Bahama. I just love the colors that blend in this dress and the shell details on the strings to tie around my neck. I love anything that reminds me I live on the Coast. For my hair, I am wearing it natural. I found this great product atUlta Beauty that left my curls perfect. I used Paul Mitchell’s Curls:Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo & Conditioner. Finishing with Curls: Twirl Around Curl Definer. I finished my look with my favorite Ray Ban sunglasses. Have a happy Easter!
