When it comes to personal style I constantly have two internal battles going on; one side of me is a total cut-off short, t-shirt & sandals beach girl and the other side is a night out in the city in chic dresses & heels kind of gal. For the most part these styles converge with maxi dresses, statement jewelry pieces and occassional heels - but when I get anywhere near the ocean I immediately retreat to that easy going, loose layers, beach bum look.
So, needless to say, when we were in Baltimore last month and the sun came out to greet us with a 75+ degree day I found myself craving this cozy soft shirtdress and sandals.
I mean, after winter and a drizzly spring here in Maine...can you blame me?
Right now I am rather obsessed with layering a mix of metals, fringe and gem stones - this arm candy is a collection of Kendra Scott, Banana Republic & J.Crew.
Another reason for the look? I had been dying for a chance to take these new pom pom lace-up sandals (from Target of all places) for a spin.
This week we will be in Kennebunkport for the Kennebunkport Food & Wine Festival. It's the festival that really kicks off summer here in Maine and my favorite of the entire year (and we have a lot of festivals here). After a busy last few weeks at work I am definitely looking forward to relaxing with the husband in one of my all time favorite Maine beach towns.
