#OOTD: Toes In The Sand (Feat. SheIn + Rocksbox)

Hi tides and good vibes. That is how I would describe my latest trip down to Delray Beach to visit my beau. Between soaking up the sun, strolling the boardwalk, and taking some trips to explore the night life in West Palm, (Note: Copper Blues is an awesome place to grab drinks!) I also decided to take the opportunity to style my newest dress from my sponsor SheIn as well as my latest Rocksbox set! 

Take The Plunge

Since I've been trying to get out of my styling comfort zone recently and try some new things, when I saw this dress on SheIn, (and you may recognize it from my most recent Wish-list Wednesday Post) I thought it was so cute, but not something I would typically wear in much of any Pittsburgh weather. However since I'm now traveling back and forth to the sunshine state to visit John, I thought this dress would be simply perfect for the beach and Floridian night life, and it did not disappoint. 

As I said, this dress isn't my typical style. Normally I go for glam/soft grung styles or a very polished look, so plunging necklines are not something you generally find in my closet. However something about this sexy beach dress caught my eye and on impulse I snatched it up.

The reason I liked it so much though is despite it's plunging neckline it has such a cool bohemian feel to it. I love the deep red and the muted pink and green of its floral pattern, all of these colors are just perfect for the fall season. I also adored it's capped sleeves and metal detailing at the waistline. Lastly, much like my other pieces from SheIn, I have to say this dress is made well and is super comfy! The only complaint I had with it is I wish it came in an size Extra Small instead of just a size Small because it was a tiny bit roomy in the bust.

So, to style this piece at the beach and for a night on the town (a big thank you to John for being a good sport about playing photographer for this shoot!) I decided to pair it with my Victoria Secret bikini top and my newest set from my sponsor Rocksbox! I just thought my SLATE etched pendant necklace was just perfect to add a little something extra to my dress. Then my Kendra Scott Arianna earrings as well as my Robyn Rhodes Agate Spear Cuff bracelet just compliment the look so nicely. Not to mention, that cuff has been on my wish-list forever! 

Lastly, the other reason I loved this dress so much is though it's not a Pittsburgh-esque style, you can definitely spruce it up to be. To demonstrate it's versatility, once I got back to the 'Burgh yesterday I decided to style it with another piece of mine from SheIn, which is just a classic charcoal crew neck sweater

The reason I feel this works so well for a casual street style look is because of how laid back both the pieces are. And due to the cut of this dress, it gives the illusion of it being two pieces therefore when paired with a sweater like this, it simply looks like a chic fall skirt.
