Caribbean Hues


You should all know by now that I live in the Caribbean, so for those few months that I'm not in school, I'm #blessed enough to be in great weather. Think 90 degrees, palm trees and spending days by the pool tanning. I'm heading home for winter break in a week, and my Christmas vacation is filled with family dinners and reuniting with all of my friends and family, and of course, lots and lots of great warm-weathered dresses.


Think Caribbean hues: bright whites, ocean blues and the perfect pink on your lips. It's my go-to when I'm at home, and I love how much this dress fits the bill. I especially love how this dress can go from day to night with the change of some accessories. 


I picked up with Ralph Lauren dress a little over a year ago at a steal of a deal at Macy's, if I told you how much I spent you'd think I was lying. But the perfect lace combined with the appropriate hemline made this the perfect dress for almost everything: I've worn it to a dinner with heels, during the day with sandals (like my go-to gold Jack Rogers!) and my sister's even stolen it and worn it to my own 21st shindig. 


I accessorized with a gold tasseled foldover Lilly Pulitzer clutch I picked up last year, a pair of gold bangles and a pop of color: the perfect shade of blue statement earrings. 


Topped off with a golden tan (more like sunburn in these photos, whoops!) and a pair of classic RayBan aviators (in gold, nonetheless!), this became one of my favorite outfits: the epitome of Caribbean style. 


Now if you don't mind me, I'll be staring at the calendar until it's time for me to go home and back to this weather! Until then...

  9. You look absolutely stunning! I am so jealous you live in the Caribbean and get to wear pretty dresses for Christmas! It is so cold here lately and I am already tired of the snow and rain!! If I were to wear a dress like this for Christmas I would either freeze or have to layer it with a million layers!
