meet me at sunset






I definitely created this outfit around a nail polish color -- I find myself doing that more frequently than I wish to admit. I've been feeling a little uninspired after playing in the ocean these past few days. Allll I feel like wearing is sunny brights and loose pieces.

And by the way, finding out your white bathing suit is see-through on a crowded beach is the worst idea. Ever. So be smart (-er than me) and test that stuff in advance. (Duh.)

  13. I totally agree, after a few days at the beach I just feel like pulling on soft shorts and loose tees over a bikini and wearing flip flops! That essie shade is awesome - probably a bit too bold of a shade for me (I tend to veer towards boring pastels), but it coordinates nicely with your belt, haha. The unexpected pop of color is lovely!
