Saint Barth, Summer Hats, Pom Poms…OH MY! You heard right, cheerleaders aren’t the only ones that can rock the pom poms! My recent vacation to Saint Barth was completely magical: the warm sand in my toes, the fascinating views, spending quality time with my family, and enjoying nature in style.
The only struggle with packing for an exotic vacation is you always want to pack your absolute favorites! For this trip- that’s exactly what I did. I could not leave home without my favorite summer item. I made this navy dress that I am wearing in the photo. It is so light and flattering on my figure, and it is made out of breathable UPF 50+ fabric! This dress became an easy solution for when I am in a hurry – I just put it on for an instant sun protection. It also looks summer friendly while hiding me from those unfriendly rays. I must have worn it a thousand times since I put a last stitch in it! I really want to make more of these dresses before summer comes:)
I paired my dress with color-friendly shoes by Elina Linardak. These Pom Pom sandals were so playful, I thought I was a kid on the playground again. I completed the look with spirit-filled summer hat with the matching pom poms! I love how this hat brought my outfit together, from the details in the texture, to the added pom poms placed in the center of the hat. Not to mention, this hat was chic and provided great coverage from my outtings in the sun.
No summer outfit is complete with out a pair of polarized sunnies. These sunshades set the entire mood for my outfit. With the rounded cat eye shape of the frame, it embodies some edgy characteristics- but also keeps the outfit looking sleek and summer friendly. This style of sunglasses can really transform an outfit.
If you are planning a family vacation, or just a simple park stroll with your family, you can always look trendy, and stay safe from the sun beat downs. I have learned that the sun will not get the best of me, and I can always find fashionable alternatives to create a fabulous outfit. What are your favorite summer outfits, or what do you like pairing your favorite summer dress with?
