beach inspiration

holiday fashion

Traffic People Dress in Bud Pink - $155 CAD
This is a romantic and flirty dress with an asymmetrical neckline and has an ankle strap with three rosettes. It runs in two light, flowy layers which are perfect for tropical weather.

Alexander McQueen Plait detail high heel sandal - $1,140 CAD
These Cognac platform sandals from Alexander McQueen are stunning with their high heel, multiple thin straps and a plaited lattice panel to the front.

Fleet Ilya Pochette clutch - $1,085 CAD
This clutch has such a beautiful, unique colour to it and definitely gives the dress a punch of a little something extra. I think the two work so well together.

Coral Starfish Dome Ring - $100 CAD
18k gold cocktail ring with pave starfish detail. This ring makes any ensemble look more glamorous, especially this one. I die.

Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel - $67 CAD
This is one of my most favorite perfumes. It's floral with a hint of spice & perfect for Summer!

I can't help but have a beach vacation inspired post since I am leaving for Cancun in 38 days with my two best friends! I am seriously crossing off the days on my calendar. Seriously.

Have a fabulous weekend dolls xx
