Sail Away With Me

This season, swap out statement pieces for your wadrobe basics for a laid-back, vacation friendly outfit. A cotton skirt like this one from Sammy Dress will not only keep you feeling cool, but the nautical stripes have mediterranean getaway written all over them! 
 
We know that when on vacation, the last thing you want to do is spend precious poolside time stressing over what you'll be wearing. You want to know our secret? Accessorise! While you want to KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetheart!), don't underestimate what a few accessories can add to your look. Statement pieces are an economical way of updating your wadrobe, with the layered necklace we chose adding a boho chic vibe perfect for a beautiful beach backdrop.
 
 
  
This fedora serves a dual purpose of shading you from the sun while the cut outs and lace detailing inject an effortless flare fit for any sunny destination your heart desires.
 
 
 


We love the bucket style of the bag, but we must say that we are not entirely pleased with the quality. The lining is not secure, so it tends to move, making life difficult when trying to put things in or locating items in the bag.

*Fedora: Sammy Dress
T-shirt: Dotti
*Necklace: Sammy Dress
*Skirt: Sammy Dress
*Bag: Sammy Dress
Sandals: Grendha

Although we were pleased with how the outfits turned out, we must say that customer service is definitely not Sammy Dress' strong suit, with our package arriving over a month after ordering them online. So if you are planning to purchase an outfit or anything from the website for a special occassion, we advise you do so well before the date.  

What is your favourite vacation outfit?

    1. Thank you Mango!! We're glad you like the little acronym we threw in there! Maxi dresses are definitely a must have when on vacation. They are so comfy and as you said versatile, so you can either dress them down or up.
