What I Wore: By The Water






Dress: Forever21 (also worn here in Teal) / Hat: Forever21
 Shoes: Old Navy / Belt: H&M


It seems like for the past month we have living by the water {on the weekends, that is!} and to me, that means outfits are relaxed and easy to put together. Sundresses, cute bathing suits, flip flops, fun hats, coverups, jean shorts, and lightweight tanks are the majority of what you would find in my suitcase when we leave on the weekends! 

I'm proud to say this entire outfit cost me less than $40.00 total, 
which makes it that much better.
I bought this dress in both black and teal because I knew I would wear it a lot, 
and it's less than $15, so talking myself out of it wasn't possible at that point. 

...and I have a feeling this hat is going to get a lot of use in the future! 


What would I find in your suitcase for short weekend trips away from home?

  1. I love that dress! I don't blame you for buying two! My weekends are spent on the water as well, which is great because you only get so long to wear cute coverups and light clothing in the midwest ;)

  8. I love that dress, and I actually bought that hat for the 4th! BYGO at Forever 21, so I get a great hot pink fedora for my Puerto Rico trip in September. Hats all the way baby! They had a great black one too. Check them out if you get a chance.

  16. Cute look :-) That dress is perfect for summer and winter! Completely doable with leggings and boots.

    You would find wayyyyy too many clothes for a weekend away! I have a slight tendency to over pack ;-)

  25. You look so cute! I LOVE that hat! I am totally guilty of buying things I like in multiple colors. I do it all the time, and my husband gets so baffled/aggravated with me. But guess what, he's starting doing it too, HA :P
