Sorbet Stripes

 Another 2 outfit post today... Firs it the outfit I wore last night of our Jamaica trip. 

The inspiration had come from Lulu's lookbook photo below:
This photo reminded me of my super old dress and wearing with big and bright turquoise jewelry!

 This sorbet colored striped BCBG dress was an amazing find at some weird outlet store that only lasted a few months at its location for $20! It is a perfect casual beach or house wedding dress and I have worn it to two of my friends' weddings. It also worked great for a vacation resort dinner outfit  as well.
 This silky shawl is so pretty. It was a wedding favor at my mom's cousin's son's wedding about 7 years ago. In Turkey you can get these in all sorts of amazing colors for under $15! They work as a shawl or beach cover up sarong.

 I had to add some blog worthy accessory to the simple dress so came out my huge wooden necklace from a Thread Show many years ago!
 The outfit would have been much cooler with higher heels which I have but did not want to carry the weight in my suitcase. So these old Ann Taylor slippers were a good substitute.

Dress - BCBG
Shawl - from Turkey
Necklace - Thread Show
Shoes - Ann Taylor

And here is Today's Outfit:

Wrap Around Cardi, Earrings & Socks  - Forever 21
Shorts - TJ Maxx
Boots - Steve Madden
Bracelet - From India
Ring - from Turkey

I am finally done with organizing all the vacation photos from 3 different cameras. Will do a separate post tomorrow mid day to display a few select to give you guys an idea...
