Dress - Trashy Diva
Cardigan - Walmart
Shoes - Walmart
Hair Combs - Belle Blossoms
A while back I shared with you that I had purchased a few new outfits to wear while at the beach for the Mister's birthday. If you missed that post, you can find it here. I also shared our visit to the sprawling Brookgreen Gardens so I wanted to show you what I wore on that visit. This will be a two part post because the Gardens were so huge that we made it a two day adventure.
Our first day at the gardens I decided to sport my brand new Trashy Diva Annette dress. This is my very first purchase from Trashy Diva and I love the quality of this dress but I have a little difficulty with the fit. I ordered according to my measurements and their size chart but it is really tight in the chest area and mushes the girls. Its also a bit tight for me in the waist area and I really have to suck it in to zip it, but once zipped up, it gives a nice snug fit. The other thing I found really odd is that the belt that came with the dress seems really large. I have it cinched nearly as tight as it will go and still have room. Odd that the dress itself I struggle to zip but the belt is too large.
But, other than fit issues, I love this dress. It is extremely well made, not as low cut as some others, so I feel more modestly covered, and it has hidden pockets. How awesome is that!! The material is a nice soft cotton and it is completely lined.
The day started off a little overcast and chilly so I grabbed a simple, super soft, white cardigan that I picked up at Walmart. It was on clearance at the time and I think I paid like $9 for it. Also, since I knew we would be doing a ton of walking, I threw on these super comfy sandals from Walmart. They are a dream to walk in, lots of cushion.
My hair that day was more or less wash and go. (Pay no mind to those gray roots shining.) The humidity always causes my hair to frizz so I knew it was pointless to take the time to set it. And it was a vacation, who wants to spend all day or night fixing their hair? Not me! I pulled it back with some Belle Blossom side combs and let it do its natural thing. Frizz.
