One last hurrah: dressing for a family trip

This week my family is taking our first vacation in ten years! I am really excited and because so many beachy things are clearanced at TJ Maxx and other similar stores, I got some great deals to aid in my packing.

Etienne Aigner espadrilles from TJ Maxx
BP sandals from Nordstrom
Straw hat from Family Dollar

tie dyed maxi dress from Marshalls
BC sandals from Nordstrom
Deux Lux studded bag from TJ Maxx

I bought a few pieces that allow me to relive my brooding beach punk days of yore, albeit with a new goth twist! I also grabbed some straight forward preppy nautical things. I'm having a great time at the beaches of Rehoboth and Dewey (where we're vacationing).

When I return I hope to share some info on my favorite stores here (complete with vacation haulage). I also will announce a giveaway this coming week. Thanks for stopping by. I promise to catch up on comments and on my blog reading as soon as I return.

I love the espadrilles you found.  Hope you have a wonderful vacation.

Thanks, Terri! They were a great deal. Clearanced to $10.

This is good to know for the future! I really liked Dewey (less crowded during the days but still within walking distance to eateries and what not... though I've heard it becomes nightmarishly party town on the weekends). I liked Rehoboth for the boardwalk, nightlife, and shopping but they forbid dogs during the summer. Dewey allowed me to take my dog on a walk before 9:30 and after 5:30 which was super fun!

I will definitely check out Lewes the next time I visit the Delaware shore.

As a Delawarean, I contend that Lewes Beach is the nicest. For day trips, at least; admittedly I've never stayed overnight at Rehoboth.
