Life By The Water


Living by the water may seem ideal when it comes to buying affordable things and knowing what to wear. Unfortunately, the cost of summer dresses and sunglasses adds up when you don’t want to feel like you are wearing the same thing everyday. I often shop at places like Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, and H&M for my “island-wear attire”. There are reasonable prices and a lot of the items can be mixed and matched to create new looks in the future. Instead of wearing a dress, I chose a romper to change it up. Normally, some rompers are too short and somewhat awkward for someone at a tall 5’8″. However, this one is longer in the back and very comfortable. I paired my romper with ballerina flats and a chunky necklace, which gives a fun girly vibe. Throwing in a vintage 60s purse and yellow top frame sunglasses contrasts the girly vibe with a bohemian edge.
