high tide




Dress: Halston Heritage "Carrie" dress (scored at Crossroads!); Sandals: J. Crew; Hat: H&M (similar style here); Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: Zara; Jewelry: Rachel Reinhardt, assorted gifted bangles 

I've been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear this Halston Heritage dress I scored at Crossroads a few months back (ahem, original tags on and all!) and admittedly, have been rather impatient with our finicky San Francisco weather. 

Of course, when we decided to head out for a day of whale watching around the island of Molokini -- I figured this was my chance to stretch my resort-wear legs, figuratively speaking. The dress itself calls to mind some of my favorite glam ladies of yore (Bianca Jagger, Angelica Huston and naturally, Miss Bradshaw herself in the not-so-fortunate SATC sequel) but I think the earthy tone necklace and straw panama hat help ground it, fitting for a day out at sea. And naturally, I could just as easily see myself wearing this number with some strappy heels (heck, maybe even this pair) which is always a win in my book!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!

Each day I tell him...I love Krystal's blog but I dont want to look at it right now because I'll get jealous that she is in hawaii! Today he said we could go this summer! So now you are actual inspiration for my real life vacation! Hope you are having a good time! Heck, i know you are!
