Back To Reality

Dress:  J.Crew, Bag:  Madison Elizabeth (similar here), Shoes:  Zara (old, similar option here for under $45!), Necklace:  Nordstrom, Sunnies:  Forever 21 (love this Ray-Ban version)
Hello readers!  Sorry for the short hiatus.  Sometimes you just need to disconnect for a bit.  My husband and I had a wonderful time in Key West.  It was hard to get ourselves on the plane to come back, but all good things must come to and end.
The weather was absolutely spectacular ~ 85 to 90 every day with minimal humidity, and the gulf water was like a bathtub.  The perfect opportunity to pull out all of my favorite summer frocks.  
As I mentioned in an earlier post, we decided not to check any bags.  This was a huge challenge for me, a girl who usually packs one bag of shoes alone, but I'm glad my husband forced me to do so.  It made going through the airport quick and easy and forced me to bring only what I really wanted to wear. {I thought about posting a packing tutorial but decided my suitcase was definitely not neat enough for that.} 
The dresses I packed were easy throw-on-and-go pieces, and the shoes I packed were neutral.  I only brought ONE PAIR OF HEELS, a nude pair of sandals, and my Tory Burch espadrilles.  I picked up this beautiful statement necklace at my local Nordstrom a few days before leaving, and I'm so happy I did.  I literally wore it with everything.  I feel that it can take any outfit up a notch and it was under $40!
Sandals:  J.Crew
