Bora Bora Travel Diary - Black Maxi Dress

Charming Charlie Dress and Statement Necklace, Ann Taylor long necklace, Target floppy hat, Tory Burch sandals and beach bag (similar here)

This outfit was centered around this giant floppy hat. Don't ask how I managed to fit it inside my suitcase! When I saw it at Target, I immediately was attracted to the stripes, the neutral colors, and (even though you can't tell in these pictures) the metallic gold detailing. It's just such a glam take on a casual beach hat, and I loved it right away. It was perfect with this extremely comfortable black maxi dress. A black maxi dress is such a great base piece, and it transitioned perfectly from breakfast, to a day at the spa, to a sunset dinner (with just a necklace swap).

This beach bag was great for toting around necessities for a day out and added a refreshing pop of color to my otherwise neutral outfit. We ended the relaxing day by watching the gorgeous sunset over the beach followed by dinner with the most fresh mozzarella cheese and pesto pasta I've ever had! Still working on recreating those flavors in our own kitchen!
