Lace Kimono + a Dress

Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to some Fall weather and cooler temps, but last weekend at the beach made me want to hold on to Summer for just a bit longer! I know I mentioned our trip last week, but I couldn’t miss sharing some photos from the beach.

Lace kimonos are such a great beach piece. They work as a chic coverup on the sand or by the pool, and then they double up as a cute layer for dresses or tanks and shorts! I loved the way mine looked with an embroidered sundress for a walk down the boardwalk with my family.

It’s been so sweet to hear Layla go on and on about our trip. She had such a blast playing on the sand, watching the waves (from a safe distance), and collecting seashells.

I am so thankful that I was also beach-ready with my Mint Julep Pedicure from Red Door Spa. If you haven’t had a pedi at The Red Door, you are seriously missing out. It was definitely the best pedicure experience I’ve had. The treatment was relaxing and so hydrating. I love that they use Essie products too. It’s been almost a month since I was in, and I’m chip-free! Of course every month, I have a special to offer y’all. Through the end of September, get a Mint Julep Manicure at the Richmond location for 20% off using code GSFANAUG11!

    You look so pretty! That kimono is gorgeous, love your dress too. I hate saying goodbye to summer too. I always find fall such a sad time of the year.

    I refuse to let go of Summer, too! We’re headed to Florida at the end of the week and I am so ready for a few days at the beach before the cold water heads in. Love your dress! XO
