I recently went on vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It was a great time of warmth and good outfits. I made my boyfriend take photos of me every day (Thanks Cory) so that I could share my looks with you. Here they are!
The first day after arriving was actually pretty cold. I wore a dress, but carried a long sleeve shirt with me and wore boots. I inadvertently created a 90’s look because of this and I kept laughing about it.
Probably my favorite look from the whole vacation was when I wore this Hawaiian shirt crop top and paired it with green cargo shorts and looked 100% like a tourist. But like an ironic tourist I suppose. Literally you should have seen me once I put my camera around my neck. Tourist.
My favorite part about this look, though, was that I did it to match my boyfriend and we look great on this boat. And both look like tourists. SO GOOD.
Also I bought this sunhat during vacation which I totally wore most days. It changed all of my outfits.
We went shopping for a few of the days, so I tried to pick cute looks that would have been more difficult for me to wear on the beach. I looked cute, even through my giant humidity-ridden hair.
For the second of those two looks, I chose a bright floral skirt to match my excited feel of vacation. Since the skirt was so loud, I chose to pair it with a black top, but black does not mean boring. The lace detail on it is so beautiful.
I bought this swimsuit for $20 by the way. I have a two-piece similar to this, but one pieces are really in style. I literally bought it 3 days before vacation. It was on sale for $30 and when I got to the cash register, it rang up as $20. I was pumped!
So pumped that I praised the sun gods.
Also it went amazing with that sunhat. I really like black and white clothing paired together.
Finally, the look of all looks. We have an annual ping pong tournament every year. I play decently, but nowhere near the point of winning. I was talking to my boyfriend’s 10-year old niece earlier in the day and she created the best catchphrase:
“If you can’t win, lose with style.”
I had been saving this outfit for the right moment in vacation. And after she said that, I knew this was the moment I had been waiting for.
Even though I lost ping pong, it was declared that I had won best outfit of the night. So, if nothing else: be stylish.
