I was dreaming of a sunny, sandy summer vacation and my hubby granted my wish with a week long adventure to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Before we stuffed the car with, well, stuff for our trip, I was in need of a few items for our get-away. Top on my list was a breezy, flowy dress, versatile enough to sail through any beach event, but also wearable to a casual party or wedding.

I scored this effortless beauty at Nordstrom and I love the look and light feel of the cobalt blue fabric, a nod to the color of the sea.  The multi, tapered layers of the dress made me feel like a butterfly each time the sea breeze washed over me.

I added a fashionable and skin-protecting straw hat and a pair of cool Prada shades to be ready for a night out on the Island with my man.woman in blue dress in front of pond with crane

The local crane in the background was not the least impressed with my outfit.  YAWN, pretty sure that’s what he muttered.

Since we were at the beach, I wanted to keep my accessories to a minimum.  A pair of gold-toned hoop earrings, a try-colored bracelet, and my cross were all this beach bunny needed for the night.
