Because I’ve been so behind in my posts, I still have so many beach and summer looks to share from our Florida vacation.  I’m (not-so-secretly) happy that I have so many to post.  It’s fun for me to go back and relive our wonderful, relaxing time at the beach.

When it comes to packing for vacation, I like to plan out my outfits ahead of time.  I started shopping online weeks before we left.  I always wear a mix of highs and lows in my normal wardrobe, so naturally that’s what my vacation style also consists of.  Highs and lows are high-mid priced pieces mixed with lower price point pieces.

This romper is beyond darling and only $24.99.  I’ve had a lot of followers comment on past posts where I wear/style pieces that are from this retailer, SheIn, that they’re nervous about buying from them.  They question the quality due to the price point.  I totally get that.  Here’s the thing.  I’ll never wear or post something that I don’t actually like.  I have never been sponsored by SheIn and I’ve always bought everything with my own money from SheIn.  What you see me wear, I love.  Being totally transparent, there have been items I haven’t loved for various reasons, whether that be the fit, quality, color, etc.  Those items are never shown to you because I’m not going to post or wear something unless it makes the cut.  You know?  But to be totally fair, that happens with every single online retailer I shop at.  I send clothes back all.the.time.

This romper actually blew me away for the price point.  I expected it to be sheer (or totally see-through, I should say) but the fabric was layered and the quality was really great.  The one thing I want to warn you about is sizing.  The sizing is totally different than US sizing.  This romper is only available in one size only.  Be sure to look at every single piece that you purchase and know your measurements in inches or centimeters.  That way you can make an educated decision when it comes to the size chart.

I actually purchased multiple pieces from SheIn with this romper and loved every single item I received.  I have a few more blog posts coming your way that will showcase each of them except one that I haven’t had time to shoot yet.  If you still have qualms about shopping here, know that the price point is lower, so don’t expect high-end quality.  Be realistic in your expectations.  Be knowledgable about sizing.  Read the reviews and look at the uploaded photos of buyers wearing the pieces, so you can see how the pieces actually fit a real human body, not just a model.  You can also look at Instagram and Pinterest.  I tend to stalk out pieces online before I pull the trigger so I know exactly what I’m getting.  Hey, money is money.  I like to know where my money is going and what I’m getting for it!

Bottom line: I HIGHLY recommend this romper and I’ve had amazing luck in my purchases.  If you have any other questions about this romper or this retailer, leave them in the comments so I can help before you make your first purchase.  Again, this is not sponsored!  I just wanted to give you a totally unbiased and truthful review about my experience so you know whether you want to shop here as well.

This swim cover-up was purchased in the same order.  It’s only $23.99!  I was also impressed with the level of quality.  Photo of me wearing this cover-up can be seen here.

Oh cobalt blue, you never do me wrong.  It was Mawmaw’s favorite color, my mom’s favorite color and it’s also mine.  I’ve said it about 100 times before in different blog posts, but I love it because it’s so flattering on basically every skin tone.  Cobalt blue makes you look so tan and healthy.

This dress is such a great find.  It’s a great price ($52) and it’s a shift style, so it’s a super forgiving cut.  If you want to hide your midsection, this style is perfect.  The cutout shoulder detail is really fun, but you do need to wear a strapless bra.  Bra straps aren’t a cute look, girl.

These photos were taken in Rosemary Beach, Florida during our vacation.  We snapped these on our way to grab dinner.  We had such an awesome week in 30A.  I plan on putting together a full recap post of our vacation with all details soon.  For now, we’re driving up the West Coast, so be sure to follow along on our journey on my Snapchat: @Angelalanter.

Sizing Info:  Wearing dress in size Small and sandals in US size 7.

Man, have I missed y’all!  In case you didn’t see, we were in Ohio for 13 days and now we’re in Florida vacationing.  It was a very long past two weeks and our vacation was much needed with the changes we have coming up.  I’ll do a post soon about everything we’ve gone through and the journey we’re about to embark on.  For now, let’s keep things light since it’s the Fourth of July!

We’re staying on 30A which is on the Florida Panhandle.  It’s easily my favorite beach town(s) in the world.  I’m planning on doing a full vacation recap and review of the different restaurants, our accomodations and things to do, so stay tuned for that.

Today’s look is a swim coverup that is totally on trend with the whole palm leaf (or banana leaf) print trend.  It’s not a maxi dress (the slit is sky high!) but could be worn as a dress if you pair it with something underneath so you’re not telling everyone your story when the wind blows the skirt up over your head, or when you sit down.  It’s currently ON SALE for 50% off, which makes it only $23, so grab one before it sells out!

Fourth of July has always been a fun holiday in my family because it’s summertime!  In Ohio, the colder month holidays were great, but the summer holidays couldn’t be beat.  You get such a short few months of good weather, so we fully lived every moment of summer.  We would usually spend the 4th swimming at my Uncle’s house and watch him set off fireworks.  It was the best because he would laugh and laugh the whole time he set them off, he got such a kick out of it…  And you couldn’t help but crack up laughing at him laughing, LOL!

Last year we were living in Mobile, AL for Matt’s new movie USS Indianapolis Men of Courage, so we drove down to Seaside, FL for the day and that’s where I got my first taste of 30A…  I’ll never look back!  So here we are, one year later and back on 30A and loving it!

Let’s be sure to take a minute to remember what the 4th of July is all about…  It’s our great country’s birthday.  We are so blessed with opportunities that others in the world will never know.  Never take for granted the greatest gift our ancestors passed along through the generations, the gift of freedom.  We’re living in the land of free and the home of the brave.
