Fashion Friday- Casual Beach Dress

Happy Fashion Friday everyone!

I’m in Austin, Texas this weekend tagging along for another one of the Hubs conferences.  I can’t wait to explore and eat #AlltheTacos.  Make sure to follow some of the fun on my Instagram!

The other weekend when I was in the Abacos, Bahamas (I told ya crazy travels this summer!,) I finally got the chance to wear a new dress I’ve had in my closet.  I love the beach-y teal blue chevron styled lines on this one.  They almost look like water up close.

We shot these pictures right before sunset one evening and the wind was going crazy!  I don’t even try to fix my hair in tropical places like this, unless I’m doing something special.  It’s stick straight here, but take it to an island and it goes salt water wavy crazy!   Beach Hair, Don’t Care…

On a side note, does anyone remember that episode of friends with Monica’s crazy hair?

This dress is perfect for the entire season because it’s made of crazy comfortable organic and sustainable cotton blend.  It’s cool and doesn’t wrinkle too badly when packed. <—I rolled it  It’s made by Aventura Clothing, which I’ve recently been crushing over because of their cute designs and commitment to the environment.

The details are what truly caught my attention though!  I adore the braided neckline and tie.  It gets brownie points for having straps wide enough to wear a regular bra with.

Whether at the beach, or mountains this is a look I’ll be rockin’ all summer long!

      Thanks Jess! I love the blue. It’s been hot in Asheville too (for us at least) but no where like Charlotte! I think we’ll be in the upper 80s today.

    That’s a nice vacation look ( smile ).
    Your smiling ” friendly ” shots come most easily
    to you. Those shots just seem natural for you.
    This was one of your best serious- posed shots.
    Hope you have a Wunderful Weekend !
