Dress for your Honeymoon
I decided to take things a little easy today and change from my normal post to create this laid-back honeymoon style! With summer days and nights, I know this easy striped maxi is exactly what I feel like wearing now, and it is also a fantastically versatile piece to pack on your honeymoon.
While I don’t usually recommend jersey maxi dresses for wedding attire, they are the perfect packable dresses for travel to warmer climates. This one, with chic nautical stripes will work anywhere – Jamaica, Bali or Florence! Maxi dresses like this can not only work as a beach cover up, so that you don’t have to change to come in for a resort lunch, or — with a few accessories — can be an elegant dress that will to take you to everything from sightseeing to a beach-side dinner night. It’s ideal and ready-for anything, especially if you’re not exactly sure what your itinerary will bring. It’s also always fun to dress up a little on your honeymoon, and not go right from being very glamorous in a wedding dress to donning last summer’s well-worn shorts and faded t-shirts. This dress is perfect to have that pretty, polished, yet blissfully relaxed look. The other thing I love is that can be layered to be your travel outfit from colder climates. Just put a sweater over this, and you’re covered and warm-ish enough to make it to the airport if you’re flying in from 40 degree temps, or just in heavy A/C.
I’ve styled it with accessories that will work both poolside and stepping into town to see the sights! Comfy sandals with a bit of a heel, classic sunglasses, a pretty tote, and chic hoops — all of these will be versatile pieces that can work with tons of other looks on your travels.
While I wish I could buy all the dresses I feature here, I can’t – but , as you know, I have a thing for stripes, and this is one dress I’ll be definitely picking up for my own summer adventures. ( Seriously, I’m buying as soon as I hit “post”! ) I hope you pick this up or one like it to wear this summer or save for your own blissful vacation or honeymoon!
Note: I just noticed when I went to buy this myself, that the dress says it is $39.98 in my “shop” widget ( I don’t control the price that comes in there), but it’s $79.95 on the Gap site + 20% off, which makes it $63.96, not a total steal like $39! I’m so sorry for the pricing issue, but it’s still a cute dress! ( And maybe there’s an additional discount coupon coming sometime soon!)
