Dressing Local #5 – Vacation Edition

We interrupt this cold, winter, lots-of-layers season to bring you Dressing Local: Vacation Edition.

I was fortunate enough to have been invited to a dear friend’s destination wedding in the Cayman Islands right around the time I knew I would need a little escape (March is rough!). The 83 and sunny weather did not disappoint, and neither did my locally purchased summer wardrobe!

For this out-to-dinner-island-style dinner outfit, I chose white denim shorts, a flowy top, sandals and earrings to match. In my opinion, these particular white shorts from Puritan Cape Cod offer the same comfortable vibe of a regular pair of denim shorts, but they are just a little bit dressier. The flowy embroidered top from Weekend is one of my go-tos for occasions on a hot day – it is loose and breezy, but also the pop of orange screams warm, sunny weather.

I paired the outfit with a pair of gold flat, sandals from Design Works (yes, the mostly home goods store has a great selection of cute shoes and sundresses!), which have become an instant staple in my closet, and a pair of locally made ceramic earrings from the LoveLocal Collective that complement the gold of the sandal and the white of the shorts.

Now that I have taken my summer clothes out of storage, it’s going to be really hard to put them back in! Coming soon to Cape Cod, I suppose!
