Dress: Halston Heritage "Carrie" dress (scored at Crossroads!); Sandals: J. Crew; Hat: H&M (similar style here); Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: Zara; Jewelry: Rachel Reinhardt, assorted gifted bangles

I've been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear this Halston Heritage dress I scored at Crossroads a few months back (ahem, original tags on and all!) and admittedly, have been rather impatient with our finicky San Francisco weather. I did want to go whale watching California style, but that's being left for another day.

Of course, when we decided to head out for a day of whale watching around the island of Molokini and then go out for a molokini snorkeling tour -- I figured this was my chance to stretch my resort-wear legs, figuratively speaking. The dress itself calls to mind some of my favorite glam ladies of yore (Bianca Jagger, Angelica Huston and naturally, Miss Bradshaw herself in the not-so-fortunate SATC sequel) but I think the earthy tone necklace and straw panama hat help ground it, fitting for a day out at sea. And naturally, I could just as easily see myself wearing this number with some strappy heels (heck, maybe even this pair) which is always a win in my book!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!
