I have a confession to make. I am supposed to be "done" shopping for my wardrobe, but I succumbed to a totally frivolous online purchase of a "resort wear" outfit. The Kate Spade hat and bag and the Tommy Bahama maxi dress were on sale at 6pm and Ugg wedge sandals were on sale at Dillard's. Why am I buying summer clothes in the middle of winter? I have no idea but these pictures make me smile whenever I see them. I can't wait to get these, especially the orange slice straw bag! I can wear the outfit the next time we go to Hawaii. Even though I don't even have a trip planned at the moment, we usually go 2-3 times a year (it's the only tropical destination that is easy for us to vacation with little kids) so I'll definitely get plenty of use out of it. Plus I can wear the pieces (maybe not all together, but mixed into other outfits) when it gets warmer here. I don't have any of these type of pieces in my wardrobe yet and thought it would be useful to have some wedge sandals, a casual maxi dress, sun hat and straw bag. What do you think? Am I being totally silly?
