Saturday morning we woke up to cloudy skies and after much debate, made the bold decision to drive out to the beach anyway. It’s always risky, driving out to the beach with a questionable forecast. No one (me) likes to sit in the sand when it’s cold and rainy and little flecks of sand keep blowing in your eyes. Things turned around by the time we arrived, the sun began to peak through the clouds and so we happily sat in the sand, soaked up the late afternoon sun, and watched the kite boarders zip by (and crash their kites into the sand). 

I was immediately drawn to the bright blue hue of this ASOS dress and scooped it up last summer some time before our trip to New Orleans (which was this time last year - I really want to go back). I hadn’t worn it as a beach dress before, but since it’s cotton and I haven’t worn it as much as I would have liked to just yet this summer, I figured I might as well. I really like wearing dresses to the beach, while there is the wind to take into consideration with particularly full skirts or shorter hems, I find dresses to be more comfortable than shorts and a tee, especially on those extremely hot/humid days.

I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

  1. It might be a risky decision, but it's clearly the best one. A sunny beach day is so worth it (especially when you get to wear a beautiful blue dress)!

  10. I just love this color. I refer to it as cobalt blue. Though it is bright, it still presents itself as a rich tone. I only have a few pieces in this color. Most recently, a jumpsuit. Will be doing a photo shoot in it this weekend and will post soon. www.stylegonerogue.com
