Sequins and Sea Breezes: 50 Shades of Blue

50 Shades of Blue

7/14/2014


Trust me when I say these are by far not my best shots but cut me a little slack. These pictures were taken at about 7:30 am the first full day into my vacation and it was already about 140% humidity and 90 degrees out! And as you can tell from the ground, it had just finished pouring out so my hair was not happy with me and I was way too lazy to do my makeup. Plus when you're just heading to the beach it really doesn't make sense to get all dolled up! But I knew I couldn't go on vacation and not take advantage of the beautiful scenery Key West had to offer so I decided to do a few shoots while I was down there despite the elements. 

I found this shirt at Forever 21 and fell in love with the shades of blue in it. I honestly didn't think I'd be able to pull the shirt off but I tried it on any way and actually didn't hate it. It's a very lightweight material which was great for walking around on a hot summer day. I originally paired this top with a pair of white shorts (which honestly looks better) but with the rain white wasn't really a smart idea. I really can't wait to wear this top again with white shorts and maybe a pair of cute wedges to dress it up a bit. I love that the peplum makes it so versatile!
