Cartagena Outfit Diary: Day 2 – Breezy Beach Outfit – Black Swing Baby Doll, Tan Straw Hat, Metallic Havaianas & Striped Denim Tote

On our second day in Cartagena, Bugsy and I were off to a day trip to Isla del Encanto, a private island in the Islas del Rosario archipelago.  We couldn’t wait for some beach relaxation and an overabundance of sun (my office-pale body was dying for some sun).

To get to the island, we’d have to take an hour long boat ride and heard the sand at the beaches are not as soft as some others, so I opted for a more sensible look for the day (and left that body chain, crop top and platform wedges in the hotel room). I wore a scoop back black baby doll swing dress (it’s super light and naturally crinkly so you don’t have to worry about its shape after stuffing it into your bag while sunning), my favorite tan straw fedora (that shimmers just a little bit in the sun), champagne havaianas (that I bought on the beach in Rio, but available everywhere; havaianas really are the best flip flips for the beach and for walking) and a nautical navy and white striped tote (that zips for safety). Just to add a little jewelry fun, I wore a hammered brass cuff (something I could take off easily before heading into the water and thick enough to not get lost in the sand).FullSizeRender(18)FullSizeRender(20)FullSizeRender(22)FullSizeRender(23)FullSizeRender(19)
