How to Wear DIY: Bright blue and white at the the grey Oregon coast

Got a chance to wear this fun halter dress I made recently at our coast trip last weekend - a How to Wear DIY opportunity on vacation!

We went to the coast last Sunday for a couple nights to celebrate our 10-year dating anniversary (OMG). We got relatively lucky with the weather (totally random what you'll get in Oregon in June), but it wasn't quite warm enough to wear super summery/beachy clothes the whole time. Not complaining! Grateful for the sun and clear skies in the afternoon, and it gave me a chance to be creative about how I wore this dress.

I love the bright cobalt blue, and it works well with this bright blue and white button-up I got last winter! I rolled under the edges of the shirt and concealed the bodice of the dress. Makes it look like a super cool bright pleated midi skirt!

Here it is on our walk back from dinner in Seaside's cute downtown.


The Seaside boardwalk is the greatest. Our hotel was a couple blocks down it from the main drag, and one morning we walked all the way to the south end; the next morning, we walked all the way to the north side and beyond on some beach paths (as IG'd!). 

Top: Old Navy. Bag: Old Navy. Shoes: Target (similar/similar). Dress worn as skirt: DIY, here!

I love the coast, love some time off, and love a chance to wear a fun recent creation!
