Young girl and the sea

WiNK floral dress

We stayed at a resort in Phuket, Thailand with its own private beach. Since it was rainy season, the resort was eerily empty, but after weeks of running around major cities that was a welcomed change. The most amazing part was $10 massages by the beach with a breeze and the sound of waves crashing in the background, and there is also something indescribably peaceful about quiet evening strolls along the sea. These were taken on our way to dinner at a restaurant in the resort located on a cliff overlooking the ocean and the only path up were uneven steps winding around the bluff, but the food and view were worth the trek. I'll do a post on that restaurant soon.

WiNK makes some of my favorite dresses (I've worn them here, here, and here), this little floral one is one of my newest purchases, and like all of their pieces I have, it's that perfect mix of darling and daring.

  8. Just checked out the new Wink collection for fall and it doesn't seem to have the pizzazz of the SS collection. The prints and colors look great on you, though! From one obsessive to another, I have to ask, did you wear this the entire time you were in Phuket? Because I probably would have.
