Resort Style- Cocktail Hour

My husband has worked SOOO hard and made Presidents Club for work this year, so the two of us are heading to TAHITI in a little over a month! I CAN NOT EVEN WAIT!!!!!!!!!!! 

The minute I found out that this wasn't just a dream...I immediately felt the need to check out my closet and see what I had, and what I needed!  I usually am a cover up, beach pants with tanks, and bathing suits only kind of girl when I am on a beach vacation. I don't ever dress up for dinner because I am just basically all about comfort 100% of the time.  This trip has me wanting to wear dresses to dinner and just try a little harder than I usually do!  I have been doing some serious searching for COMFORTABLE, stylish, and beachy dresses that I can wear while on vacation at fancy dinners with my husband AND still want to wear when we are back home!  

1 / 2 / 3 /

1:I LOVE this mini dress! I actually bought it on Zulily a few weeks ago and was just hoping that the material was thin enough for summer! IT IS and it is possibly the softest dress I own! I LOVE IT!!!!! I am pretty sure I will wear it with sandals because I just feel like it will be a little too much with heels on vacation. 

2: I am 5' 2" and I just assumed that I would look ridiculous in a jumpsuit like this! I was killing time at Target a few weeks ago and just tried it on and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I do need to get it hemmed because it is VERY long, but this has to be the most comfortable piece of clothes that I own! It basically feels like I am walking out in pajamas and I can't even wait to wear this to dinner on vacation! I am on the hunt for a long coral necklace to pair with it and I am packing my coral heels! 

3: I have been eyeing this dress for MONTHS and snagged it up the second I got the 50% off coupon.  (use "friends&family") I LOVE IT!!!!!! Super thin material and the cut is so flattering! I went back and purchased it in the other print as well because it is THAT amazing! 

4: I have never purchased a maxi dress that didn't need to be hemmed......UNTIL I BOUGHT THIS DRESS!!!!!  It is a heavy fabric that hangs very well, and the print cuts at the right places! 

I usually pack a "fancy" outfit for most trips and never end up wearing it because comfort wins over fashion.  BUT I feel that each one of these dresses is the perfect mix of "fancy" AND comfortable so I am confident that I will wear them! (plus, my husband has made sure that I am fully aware that I can not bring a ton of suitcases on this trip) 


  1. Love it, Katie!!! Cannot wait to drool over your pics...beach pics always make me swoon! Great style too...I've been trying to pull off the jumpsuit look as well but the hemming of the pants annoys me bc I'm lazy andddd going to the ladies room taking it all off makes me laugh for some reason! 😜

  2. I am buying that Target jumpsuit!!! SO cute!
