This dress is like… a vacation staple, right? I love the comfortable fit-and-flare of the silhouette  and the cutouts in the back are an extra dose of fun.

I wore this little number for our last dinner in Hawaii at Capische at the Hotel Wailea.  That last night on vacation is so bittersweet… ok mostly bitter. But re-living our vacation through these posts has actually been so much fun and reminds me how important it is to treat-yo-self. I usually am the person who takes one vacation day here, two vacation days there, but to take a full week off is a rarity.  Now that we live in California, there are so many new trips we want to take and Christian can’t take the one or two days off, rather he gets to pick four weeks a year to completely unplug.  For that reason, we’ve become the week-long vacationers and I never expected for it to feel so much more relaxing.

Coming back to hundreds of emails is not so relaxing, but nonetheless, I’m grateful to have a reason to take this time for ourselves and experience something new together. What’s your vacation strategy?  I’d love to hear.

  1. That dress is a vacation staple! Super cute. I think taking a full-week off is SO much more relaxing but unfortunately I have not been able to do that in about two years. I’m really hoping next year is the year. I hope I can save up enough vacation days to do 2 weeks in Europe…that’s where half of my family and friends are and I miss them so much! Until then, it will be a day or two here and there, which, to be totally honest, I need just as much!

  2. That dress is so pretty and such a steal!! I definitely prefer a week long vacation but will take whatever I can get sometimes. It can be hard to disconnect and fully relax in less that week. Hawaii looks beautiful! I’m glad you guys had fun.


    1. I totally hear you on that. Nicole – I think it sounds like you deserve a vacation! 🙂 xo

  3. LOVE this dress! Question for you – did you go sans bra? Wondering how I can make this dress work for myself…. tried the sticky cups once and it was a disaster. Would love to hear how you made it work!

    1. Of course! Yes I went sans bra but used little sticky flower petals. I have so many of these I use them all the time!
