Outfit Highlight: Beach Dreaming + GIVEAWAY

Happy Monday, my friends!

It was a hot and humid weekend but I’m not complaining. I’ve been waiting for this kind of weather for too long. When it feels sticky outside, there is only one place I want to be…at the beach. When you can’t take the heat anymore, you can just take a refreshing plunge into the ocean water. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Rio enjoying the white sand beaches of Brazil, but the beach always feels like home to me, peaceful, relaxing and carefree.

Well, I must have been daydreaming about the beach when I put this outfit together. I paired this sheer cotton mini-stripe popover with a crisp white eyelet skirt along with Soludos espadrilles to finish the look. I also ditched my usual rose tinted shades for ocean blue tinted sunnies. This whole look just made me want to hop on the minivan with the fam and drive to the beach. Unfortunately, being in SE Michigan, the nearest decent lake beach is about 3 hours away so that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

My super supportive friends, it’s getting down to the wire. We have less than a week left to vote! Yes, I know, I’m talking about the REDBOOK Real Women Style Awards again. Thank you so much for your support. Please keep on voting! Just go to http://redbookmag.com/bestdressed and scroll down to my photo and click on the heart. Thanks a million!

  1. Looking lovely Cynthia! The colors are amazing. I pulled together a beach inspired look for tomorrow’s post. I didn’t know you grew up or frequented Rio, but it sounds divine.

  2. I have a similar white eyelet skirt and always wear it with my chambray button down. I wish I had a pink button down, because it looks so good how you styled it! Now I may need to get one. 🙂

  3. Love the 2 shades of pink together and they both go with the white beautifully. The shirt is lovely on you. Looks so effortless and chic.

  4. You always look gorgeous in white. That skirt is so very pretty. Love it with the soft pink and those colorblocked flats are adorable!

    P.S. Thanks for your concerns and prayers from yesterday’s post. Much appreciated!

  5. There is nothing better than a crisp white skirt for spring and summer! You look lovely in pink too! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for linking up today! Susan
