My Outfit Monday: Vacation to the maxi



I am totally drowning in work today. This explains why it's past 4 p.m. and I'm just now posting My Outfit Monday. And it also explains why I'm going to post some outfits I wore weeks ago. It's not that I don't like my outfit today. I do. But this sea of duty (see what I did there?) I'm in at the moment is making me crave memories of the Florida Keys vacation I took recently.

Deal Diva Katie and former Deal Diva Emily (we do like to hang out outside the blog!) went down to the Florida Keys to dog-sit for my friend's mom, who has a big house on the water she let us use for free in exchange. Deal Diva Tip of the Year: Never turn down an offer like that. As if you would.

I decided to go full-on vacation style, with long maxi dresses and beachy, sandy hair. Here's what I wore.



It's blue.



It is also blue. Ah. Calming color, peace, love, coral, all that.

I should clarify that I'm not actually hitchhiking in this picture. I was just hamming it up while waiting for the city bus to come take us from the house on Sugarloaf Key to Key West for the evening. You get a house full of Deal Divas and just TRY and see if we'll take a $70 cab ride versus a $4 public bus ride. Just TRY.

Both dresses were on deep discount at Dillard's, at that magical time of year when all retailers are unloading their summer stock, yet we Floridians can still use it for most of the year. The straw purse was purchased on the same kind of sale, $7 at Target. It was a strategic choice in more than one way. I figured a cross-body bag would make it almost impossible to absent-mindedly leave my wallet on some bathroom sink at Sloppy Joes. It worked!

Oh. It's not an outfit, but here's a picture of the dogs we watched. Because they're awesome.


Pugs! Joy! Vacation!

Sigh. Back to work now.
