Belle of the Beach

Belle of the Beach

Every lady, young or old, deserves to feel like a belle, which Merriam-Webster describes as ‘a popular and attractive girl or woman, especially : a girl or woman whose charm and beauty make her a favorite.’

When Belle Boutique reached out to me, I browsed their shop and fell in love with this grecian goddess looking dress. I was so excited to bring this white dress on vacation because it doubles perfectly from a day-time cover up to a classy dress for dinner. The stretchy yet soft material makes it easy to move around in and the subtle gold chain straps add the perfect amount of contrast to take this dress up a notch, from a traditional cotton maxi. During the day I wore this maxi as a cover up and paired it with this adorable floppy hat and felt like the Belle of the Beach. At night the wind picked up and I had a hard time keeping it on my head (let alone my hair from going wild!). To keep the look chic, I paired this Luisa H.M. Willow bangle with Tory Burch sandals, because they are comfortable enough to walk around in yet stylish with their snakeskin print. This dress will be on repeat all summer long!

The lovely ladies at Belle Boutique have offered my readers 20% off of their first purchase! Simply apply code ‘MONIQUE20‘ at checkout to receive 20% off full price merchandise! I am sure this dress won’t last long, so head on over to Belle Boutique to complete your summer wardrobe!
