It has been quite a great trip so far, and I am happy to be able to kick back and relax, away from the lab! Sometimes you need to take a break to be able to come back and be more efficient and active!
Today I am trying to survive the heat of Cyprus by wearing another dress to keep cool! I am bringing back a strapless sundress from many years ago, with this paisley black and white print strapless dress from American Eagle Outfitters. I haven’t shopped there in the last year or two, mainly because I don’t go to the mall as much, and I think my fashion taste has evolved a bit, but I saw this dress in my closet when I was moving and figured I would bring it back! Only thing is I have to wear a strapless bra, which I don’t usually like, but for this style its worth it! And once again I am recycling accessories I have styled before, but they really help pull together a great outfit! The purse is a wallet purse that I have worn before, by Franco Sarto, a necklace that I got from Walmart for 5 dollars and never wore because I didn’t know what to wear with, and the strappy sandals I have worn with so many outfits – that I got in Hawaii! These are really the perfect sandals because they match well with everything! So less shoes to pack! And they don’t hurt your feet (unless you are standing for hours!).

I have been wearing this dress to a few beach parties over my swim suit, it is perfectly light and doesn’t get dirty (it hides it well!), and its great to wear to the beach or even to a beach cafe in the evening! It is such a casual dress, I love how it can be dressed up or down!
What do you think? Would you wear this to the beach and out with friends? When you are going to a beach bar or cafe, would you wear a casual strapless dress? Have you shopped/bought any dresses from American Eagle ? What’s your favorite sun dress shop?
