The colors of Harbour island are breathtaking! Besides the fact that the sand on the beach is pink and the ocean water is the clearest shade of turquoise you’ve ever seen, each and every building is a different rainbow hue. There are blue houses, pink buildings, green shops, yellow restaurants, and the list goes on! I can never get enough blue so it seemed fitting to shoot a whole Harbour Island blues outfit in my blue one shoulder dress (also comes in an off the shoulder version) and blue tassel earrings (similar).
I’ve mentioned it before on here but I’ll say it again, I’m loving fun twists on necklines, sleeves, and hems this spring (remember this post and this post?). One of my favorite looks is a one shoulder dress or top. I always think it is more intriguing to show some skin in unexpected ways like by showing bare shoulders (especially when they are lighted bronzed by the sun!). This dress is such a home run for me because it brings in so many elements I love like a flowy silhouette, a bare shoulder, pockets, and embroidered detail. It also comes in an off the shoulder version and a non-embroidered version. Here are a few other similar dresses as well:
I’ve received so many compliments on these raffia shoes (also come in blush) that I’m tempted to wear them every day. The heel is chunky and so comfy that I honestly feel like I’m slipping into a pair of flats when I slide them on. The raffia is perfect for spring and summer too! Expect to see these a lot more on me! I found a few similar raffia shoes here: one, two (also come in blush and in a wedge), three, four, five.
This Cult Gaia bag is just the best (last seen here and here). I have the small size and it fits my entire wallet, sunglasses, phone, keys, and lip color. It looks so darn cute with a scarf tied around it too (every single color scarf works!). On a side note, how adorable is this California scarf? I want to frame it!
My blue tassel earrings are from last spring but J.Crew released five very similar styles this year so you can still snag the look (one, two, three, four, five). I’m a huge fan of the statement earring so I wear these all the time. The tassels swish when I walk and go with everything!
