I hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July! If you follow me on Snapchat (ladyinviolet) or Instagram, you probably saw that we ventured down to Galveston, TX for our long weekend. I love being less than an hour away from the beach! Galveston has such a laid back feel to it, and it is the perfect place to kick back and relax for the weekend. I shot a few of my island style outfits over the weekend, and can’t wait to share them and a little bit about Galveston with you this week!
One of my friends always says we are on Island Time when we are in Galveston, which means throw out your schedules and just chill. Island style is all about laid back and comfortable, even when dressed up. My perfect dinner and drinks outfit in Galveston is either a bright colored shift or sun dress like from this post or a maxi skirt and tube top. I cannot get enough of this maxi skirt! I think this is about the third time I have worn it on the blog already. It is officially sold out, so if you didn’t swipe it up on a previous posting, I linked some similar options for you. The slits on the skirt really make this perfect for the beach. It really allows some breeze in, so you don’t get too hot. The black tube top adds to the laid back feel of the entire outfit. I always bring a couple tube tops with me just in case I spend a little to much time in the sun. There is nothing fun about a sunburn rubbing against a strap or sleeve. This is probably about as dressed up as I got all weekend. I love my heels, but for my island style I leave them at home and opt for only wedges or flat sandals. I think the wedges work great to help an outfit look a little more dressed up for a night out.
For our two dinner nights, we first hit up an old favorite Fisherman’s Wharf down on the Strand. This place has tons of seafood options including our favorite, the Shrimp Kisses. We sat on the upstairs enclosed balcony room which has great views of the water and the 1877 ship Elissa. We also tried a new to us restaurant, Rudy and Paco’s. This restaurant is super cute and romantic. The food is also amazing!! I highly recommend the Filete de Pargo Elegante and the Crab Bisque. We definitely plan on going back to this place next time! Check back Wednesday when I will be sharing a little more about the Strand and some of my favorite brunch restaurants!
