Daily Outfit: Lovin the Lava

Warning! These are not glam shots.  This is some ol rag I threw on over my bathing suit to head down to a secret beach we were told about. And the Teva sandals do nothing for it, I know! And I know wearing the wrong shoes just kills an outfit.  We are staying with at a friend who lives here and she told us all about the great local spots.  It was really overcast and nearly raining however we headed down this lava road anyway to find the beach.  I thought the contrast of the overcast and the lava would be great with this flower print.  I found this dress at a thrift store awhile back and it was longer so I shortened it at the waistline with the intention for it to be a little less like "Little House on the Prairie".

I mainly post these cuz I like the background color contrast.  We are heading off Hiking today so will post some pics later!! 

The beach we finally got to after walking about 1 mile along lava trails (hence wearing the Teva's!!)


  1. Oops I meant to edit lol...anyways... happy thanksgiving Jodi! Oh to be where you are this weekend, that beach looks so fantastic! How is the triathlon going?
