Magenta & Melon

by Jessica Sturdy on May 24, 2012

The last day of vacation is always bittersweet. I try not to dwell on the fact it’s the last day in paradise before being tossed back into reality the following day, but it can be challenging. We spent our last full day soaking up every last little bit of sun before heading to Truluck’s for dinner.

Dinner was PHENOM. Lobster bisque, garlic mashed potatoes, a juicy filet, mushrooms, green beans, carrot cake with butterscotch sauce, and one giant, decadent slice of chocolate cake. Needless to say, the skinny belt came off during dinner. I wish I was kidding… Here’s proof.

Dress: Old Navy – on sale!// Glitter Belt: J.Crew – on sale! // Platinum Espadrilles: Sperry Top-Sider (They also come in a flat version!) // Cobalt Clutch: Akira (birthday gift from Megan H!) // Gold Bracelet: Sequin // Toes: Essie ‘Trophy Wife’ // Nails: OPI Gel Color ‘Strawberry Margarita’

And our usual after-dinner pictures… Notice my lack of gold, glittery belt. I tried to put my belt back on after dinner and I honestly couldn’t get it to fasten. #embarrassing #stuffed

I had such a fabulous vacation, girls! Can’t wait until the next one. :)

You look gorgeous – love the colors of that dress and the belt gives it some shape! Totally don’t blame you for taking it off, though – I’ve been known to do that too :)

This dress is awesome on you! All my favorite maxi dresses come from Old Navy! I kinda want to buy this one now too.

I like how you chose to dress this dress up. Good choice!

Noticed that this was kid’s belt. What size did you end up picking?


Jessica May 24, 2012 at 8:47 pm

It’s a L in Crew Cuts. Hence why it only fits around my smallest part… :)

I love the hot pink and orange of your dress alongside the gold. Beautiful :)

That dress is old navy?! It’s SO cute! Seriously gorgeous on you, love that it’s so flowy and pretty but in bold punchy colors! Great find!

Love this dress, I totally didn’t remember that it was from Old Navy!

Love love love that dress. I never would have guessed it’s a ON dress, they have stopped up their game. I think I may have to add it to the closet . . .how tall are you . I’m a shortie at 5’2 so not sure how this would work. Great blog too by the way.


Jessica May 30, 2012 at 10:29 am

Thank you! I am 5’5”.. Hope that helps!

I know, the end of vacations are sad :-( I just got back from mine too. This dress is so pretty on you, i love the blue clutch with it. I NEED to mix and match more. :-)

Your accessories are to die for! That clutch is gorgeous and the bow ring is oh so cute!
