Staycation Wardrobe

I mentioned that Jeff and I did a staycation this week. We stayed at the Belmont Hotel, a renovated 1940s motor hotel built by Charles Stevens Dilbeck in Oak Cliff. I am obsessed with the sprawling architecture of this hotel, it sets an intensely cinematic mood. The hotel is perched above all of Oak Cliff and you get a spectacular view into downtown Dallas.

I was very excited when ASOS offered me a few picks from their Holiday edit for the summer. If you’ve been following Sea of Shoes for a while you know I love ASOS! With our getaway and lots of pool time in mind, I packed a few swimsuits (like this leopard bikini from ASOS you might have seen on Instagram) and easy breezy skirts and crop tops to go to dinner in. I chose this gingham maxi skirt and crop top to wear as a set. I had to have it when I saw it! A two piece set is so easy when it comes to packing, and the gingham print felt era-appropriate for our retro staycation. I also am in love with this circular straw bag felt perfect for right now and was perfect for packing my beach towel.


This post was made in partnership with ASOS, as always all opinions are my own.

    Very cute! (I think the zipper on the skirt is designed to be worn on the side, though.)

  11. What I love most about fashion is that it gives us permission to be fearless and experimental. 
    I absolutely adore this outfit very feminine, flirty with a touch of soft notes.

    Fabulous sandals with gold elements.
    Thank you for sharing. I hope you are having a lovely weekend. Such a beautiful weather in London today.
