Blue And White Striped Dress on Cape Cod

We travel to Cape Cod about twice a year to visit Dan's family. I still can not get over that he grew up in such a beautiful place. Over the years, I've heard him recount stories of bonfires on East Sandwich Beach as some of his favorite memories. We switch up which beaches we go to all of the time, but this time we were feeling a bit nostalgic.

His parents are retiring soon and moving down south, so we won't always have a reason to come visit. On our last morning we woke up early and went for a walk on East Sandwich Beach. Summer on the Cape is not for the faint of heart, as the tourists completely take over the small towns, so we were shocked to find we had the beach almost to ourselves. 

This blue and white striped cover up was the perfect outfit for our breezy morning walk. I loved it so much when I first saw it on REVOLVE that I pre-ordered it all the way back in April. I was worried it would be baggy, but it was actually really flattering. I wore a bathing suit underneath since it is a bit short, but it is perfect for a casual beach day and savoring the last warm days of summer. Of course, back in Houston it will be warm pretty much all year long so I am sure I will wear it again and again.

My basket bag is from Bali and I absolutely love it! I know, I know, it is so basic... a drunk guy at an Astros guy actually stopped to ask me if it was a tortilla holder and I laughed because it totally does look like one. It is seriously my favorite bag, though, because it goes with everything and I love that it reminds me of our travels in Bali (see here, here, and here).
