Resortwear On A Budget

I’d wanted to buy a few new things for our recent Kauai trip, but didn’t want to break the bank.  Which, I think is the case for a lot of us when it comes to tropical holidays.  Hawaii is expensive enough!  I love shopping online for summer items, so I spent months stalking ASOS for reasonably priced dresses that could double as either a daytime bathing suit coverup or a casual evening dress because I also wanted to pack light.  This classic striped frock caught my eye and the $40 price tag was perfect.  The best part, is that vacation me is far more relaxed, so I didn’t even wear a bra with this cotton dress!  The low back was such a beautiful feature, so I just threw my hair forward and hoped that no one noticed.  I ended up confessing to my girlfriends on our way to dinner, but they both assured me that they had no idea I was bra-less (though, not sure if that was actually the case, they could have lied like good friends do lol).

Unfortunately, there’s only one size left  in this colour way at the moment, but they have a solid black version, or these stripes in a lighter mint combo.  Shop the look below:

    That hat and dress combo is the cutest! Also, bravo for going braless! I’m a girl with curves like yours and I get so sick of sturdy bras:)
