This is like a flashback friday only it's monday and we are definitely not still in Hawaii but I'm sure your gonna be reminded of it time and time again this month. We could not turn down the opportunity to take some photos with mother nature at her best, although this is supposed to be a fashion post I think it's going to be hard to compete with the sunset.

I love beachy holidays it makes packing a suitcase so easy. I like to make sure to bring something a little dressier than shorts and shirts just in case it's needed. So that item on this occasion was this dress by Free People. I picked it up at something like 70% off I call it beach glam : beach being the crochet and the glam being the gold thread and black embroidery. I've actually had it in my wardrobe for a loooong time but with the tan I've acquired thought I could finally pull it off.  Yes this is a tan for me. It 's a good fit I am not a fan of tight dresses so it is perfect for me, whilst the crochet part was a bit boxy the slip underneath did slightly body hug giving some shape.

I paired it with some of my favourite black strappy sandals from Zara and some inexpensive beach jewellery I picked up in Maui. These gold pieces were actually inspired by Maui with the shells being hand collected and the ring depicting a wave. Of course just remember your setting yourself up for a fall with crochet and fine jewellery.
