San Juan: Floating in a Turquoise Sea
“She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea, dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar.”
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
Here is my tip on packing dresses for travel: make sure it has doesn’t wrinkle! Wrapping up the last of my Caribbean trip with this post I wanted to share with you one of my all time favorite dresses from BCBG. Firstly, the color is simply amazing for a place like San Juan. The vibrancy of the city made me want to wear something on par without overdoing it. This particular BCBG dress has been in my closet for a couple of years now and comes on almost all my trips. The weight of it is heavy but surprisingly gives way to even the slightest breeze which definitely helped in San Juan. It’s made of Spandex Jersey which means even if I ball it up and throw it in my bag it won’t wrinkle! And, for anyone who lives in warm climates you know how quickly traditional materials, such as cotton, wrinkle.
This dress is also fabulous because I can dress it up for nighttime or, like I did in San Juan, pair it with ultra comfortable Ralph Lauren sandals and Tom Ford Sunglasses and it is perfect for day wear! The wrap effect the tie gives it is also ultra flattering without being clingy. This dress definitely gets two thumbs up!
Because, I bought the dress so long ago I have listed another dress from BCBG made from the same material that comes in Raspberry and White. I am currently lusting after the white one and may or not be wearing it very soon! 😉
