I am heading to Jamaica next month to participate in the first Curvy Caribbean Conference and I am so looking forward to the trip. I can’t wait to mix and mingle with the participants, share some fashion & beauty tips and breath in some hypnotic ocean air. I am also anxious for some time on the beach so I can thoroughly EXHALE!  

This look is so representative of the serene mood that encapsulates me whenever I hit the beach. Peaceful, tranquil, calm are the adjectives that describe this look. The dress represents the beautiful white sand; the turquoise colors are symbolic of the ocean waters, and the gold shoes and beading on the necklace, as well as my orange lips remind me of the beautiful  colors present as the sun disappears over the horizon. Ahhhhh …… Can you tell I am ready for some fun in the sun? 

This shirt dress from ASOS (sold out, sorry!) is just as cute as it can be. It’s a classic shirt dress with fun & frilly sleeves added for damn good measure. It is surprisingly lightweight even though it’s fully lined. The necklace is just gorgeous and a piece I picked up at a little jewelry spot a couple of years ago here in Atlanta. The earrings are from H&M. The brand makes them in different colors every season. I was in the store last week and they have these now in tan/khaki, black and hunter green. I didn’t buy any of the new colors but I am kind of regretting that (dumb) decision now. The shoes are by Jessica Simpson and I’ve had them for years. They were in fact the first pair of platforms I owned and could actually walk in. I subsequently bought them in about 5 other colors. Ha!

I love this classic, yet unconventional, “beach wear” look. I hope you do too! I will share more about the Curvy Caribbean Conference next week so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out their website for location, workshops and pricing.
