Sunset & Off The Shoulder Stripes

“It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream”

— Bern Williams

I can’t think of anything more carefree than this outfit – cute & casual off the shoulder top, cutoff’s & bare feet – surrounded by water as far as the eye can see, the sun dipping into the ocean & the wild, salty air blowing all around.
After a full day of sun & (too much) fun, I decided it was time to finally emerge from my sun bed & get out of my bikini. I quickly ran down to our stateroom & slipped into this off the shoulder top that I bought before our trip + my favorite pair of denim cutoff’s only to run right back up to the deck and catch the sunset with Adam before it was time to shower & get ready for dinner.
This was our very last night on the ship and at sea, we cruised for 2 full days & nights after leaving our last port, Tortola, to return to Miami where we first embarked on the Oceania Riviera./

I’m holding on to these magical moments… the wild wind blowing thru my hair (I thought it would be fun to share a couple of the crazy ones with my hair all over the place), the smell of salt air, the warmth of the sun on my skin, all the colors in the sea & sky, and feeling incredibly grateful to have been able to spend the last 12 days on this beautiful trip with the people I love the most in this world – my mom & dad, sister & Adam.
We took so many photos during our trip & I can’t wait to share them here with you all! Hope your week was a good one & wishes for a wonderful weekend!
Its’ cold, grey & gloomy here in Charlotte & I’ll be sitting in a Real Estate Post-Licensing class from 8am-4pm Saturday and Sunday, this weekend and next – how’s that for a welcome back to reality.

Much Love,
