Myrtle Beach

Summer Nights

DSC_0593It’s been a little while since my last post, as we’ve been traveling most of spring, but I’m so excited to begin sharing our adventures with y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know I’m most excited to post about our California trip, but this evening I wanted to show you a look I wore while on a quick weekend getaway to Myrtle Beach. Now, the “dirty myrtle” isn’t the most luxurious destination, but we go every year for the Monday After the Master’s charity golf tournament, put on by Hootie and the Blowfish, and we always have a great time! Plus, it’s an easy 45 minute drive from home and who can say no to a little calabash shrimp buffet every once in a while?! (JOKING) Seriously though, it’s a weekend we look forward to every year and this year we were also able to spend it with my parents to celebrate my mom’s birthday! This evening’s look was what I wore to the M.A.M. concert that takes place after the tournament- talk about a good time!!
DSC_0602DSC_0588One of my absolute most favorite trends this summer is off the shoulder! The style is so feminine and flirty, and I love showing off my shoulders and collarbone. It’s something I can wear to be sexy without feeling overexposed. When I saw this top from one of my go-to brands, Show Me Your Mumu, I knew I had to have it! Not only does the white go with everything, but it really makes your tan skin glow after a long day on the beach. I paired the top with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans to be sure to keep things casual and comfortable.
DSC_0620DSC_0606I accessorized with these fabulously boho layering necklaces from II Brunettes that have quite possibly been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! I wear them together, separate, mixed with other necklaces- the options are seriously endless. I just love how the green pendant brings just a touch of color to this mainly neutral ensemble. I did stick with nude for my bag and shoes because I think it kept the outfit cohesive and classy. When in doubt- stick with neutrals!!  DSC_0590This is the perfect outfit for a summer night out to a concert, dinner date or drinks with friends. It’s super classy and put together, while still remaining casual and effortless, which is basically how I strive to look at all times {but realistically don’t}. If you wanted to dress this down even further for daytime, you could wear a pair of denim cutoffs with gladiator sandals and throw on a straw panama hat. (see below for this exact version on me!)
