If you’re familiar with Harbour Island (read my travel guide here), then you know that the sand on the beach is pink. It is truly the prettiest, finest, softest, and pinkest sand I’ve ever seen (aka the only pink sand I’ve ever seen)! While the sand looks pink during the day, it really shows off its pink hue at sunset. I knew I had to shoot an outfit on the beach at sunset so y’all could see just how pink it is! The climate was downright perfect – warm during the day with cool 70 degree nights. I went for a bright and bold wardrobe for my trip. Thus, I decided that a little print mixing on Harbour Island was in order.
I snagged these floral Mara Hoffman pants – yes, they are pants, not a skirt! – back in early February. I’ve been exercising all my will power not to wear them until Harbour Island because I wanted them to be a fun, special piece for the trip. I love that the pants are high-waisted because they look great with a cropped top, a tucked in solid colored tee (30% off!), or with a swimsuit top (30% off!) like how I styled them here. See, even though the print is so bright, the pants are actually super versatile!
My gingham top is actually a swimsuit bikini top (30% off!)! J.Crew is really killing it with their swimwear this year and this gingham number is no exception. The matching bottoms are perfect too. I also love these two similar gingham bathing suits: one, two (both 30% off!).
It’s safe to say that I’m obsessed with straw bags. You’d be so surprised to see how much can fit in this Clare V woven straw bag. I can easily fit my camera, wallet, phone, sunglasses (30% off!), beach cover-up (30% off!) and more in it and it holds up extremely well. I especially love the pom tassel keychains (one, two, three) Clare V sells to clip on for an added dose of fun!
Have you ever seen sand and water so pretty!? I truly haven’t! I felt so tropical and inspired on this trip by creating fun outfits like this print mixing on Harbour Island look… I hope it shows!
