A Maxi dress is my go-to outfit for a night out on a beach vacation. They give me the feminine look that I want but keep with the low key beach vibe when worn with flat sandals and simple accessories and makeup. This ruffle off-the-shoulder maxi dress from Club Monaco has been on my eye for a while and I finally treated myself to it before our trip. It’s currently on sale, as is this similar blue dress and this similar style for under $100. The blue and green floral motif of the Channon dress was a perfect fit to go with the rolling waves and island landscapes we found at the beach. I wore it with these white drop wearings (under $30!), flat nude sandals (similar here), and a handwoven bag (sold out similar here).
As I said in this post, we started out very night with drinks while watching the sunset. Our favorite place ended up being right where we stayed at The Point since it was so beautiful and easy – here you can grab a drink and food and listen to live music while watching the sunset behind the surfers and waves coming in.
Funny story…as we were shooting this maxi dress look on the beach, I slipped on the coral. It looked completely dry but was really just smooth and wet from the waves! It was funny and embarrassing (I was so lucky I didn’t hurt myself on any of the sharp edges of the coral) and there was a minor stain on the back of the dress. It came right out when I brought it to the dry cleaners once we got home. So if you end up in a similar spot with rocks and coral where the water meets the sand, be careful!!!
