While I love the tropical climate and bright blue waters of the Caribbean, its not practical to get there often. However, we live an hour away from the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan and go as often as we can. I got this gorgeous Maxi dress on clearance at Kohl's last year to take to the Cayman Islands and forgot to bring it. Monday was a Maxi dress prompt for our Create 28 so I was so happy to pull it out for the next best thing, a trip to the
Beach on Lake Michigan.
Of course I had to pair it with my straw beach bag from ShopBob. Since wedges aren't really practical for a beach town day, I decided to pair it with my deep coral color sandals from of all places..WalMart. They are so comfy that I just had to get them in black, silver and magenta and they are under $10 but you'd never know it!
This particular day was the ultimate beach day for me. Light breeze, 75 degrees, not crowded...the stuff that magic is made of for this water loving girl. I even got a few items at a boutique in town called "Lana's" including a tank that says "Born on a Beach." It may not be Caribbean beach but for our family, it's the next best thing for sure!!
