As soon as I put on this dress I started singing Madonna's 'La Isla Bonita', I just couldn't help it - the lyrics "Tropical the island breeze, all of nature wild and free, this is where I long to be, La Isla Bonita" just seemed to fit perfectly with the vibe of this dress. It's so ready to be worn on a tropical island resort holiday, sipping Pina Coladas by the infinity pool with the tropical breeze in your hair. For now I am content just wearing this dress around town on the hot days we're having at last (in Melbourne at least). It makes my own backyard feel like an island getaway, who needs a resort when you have your own blow up kiddie pool and an endless supply of icy-poles?
To go with the tropical theme I wore my favourite vintage tropical bird necklace that I picked up at an op-shop over ten years ago now for $1. Sometimes it pays to hold onto pieces as they may just come back into style. My lipstick is Lime Crime's new Velvetine lip stain in 'pink velvet' which is an amazing colour - perfect for summer!
Are you lucky enough to be going on a resort holiday this summer?
