During our Costa Rica trip we decided it would be fun if we had one special “date night” where we all got dressed up a little extra special and had dinner on the beach at sunset. Since the temperature was pretty hot and humid, I decided that this short mint dress with mesh panels would be perfect for the occasion.
My packing philosophy for the trip was focused on items that felt light, summery, and a bit tropical when possible, but I really had the hardest time narrowing down my packing list when it came time to decide. I originally started with packing nine pairs of shoes but decided that might be a bit much. Actually, I had narrowed it down to nine and felt like it was a solid number, but my husband so kindly pointed out that only a crazy psychopath would pack nine pairs of shoes for 7 days, so I had to reevaluate my choices… Dress/MinkPink c/o LuLu*s, Shoes/Aldo
Did you notice this dress has pockets??? Ka-CHING! Dress jackpot. Also, nude summer wedges are everything. Get a crazy tall pair that you are super comfortable in and all the sudden your legs grow three feet taller. Love it.
This dress is amazing – blonde & tan calls for mint, that’s for sure! I think I’ll hunt for something in this color for my hawaii trip..it screams summer :).
I love dresses with pockets….sometimes I never know what to do with my hands…..!
I fully support this dress. And your wavy hair.

I love this outfit! It’s making me want to travel to a tropical island!! Besides that fact, I love your heels and really wish I wasn’t 5 foot 7 so I could wear sky high wedges in the summer (not because my legs need lengthening but because they’re so cute)!
you guys look stunning! and i am in love with your dress, such a pretty color!
I loved seeing your killer shoes and outfits that you packed to Costa Rica!! Especially your shorts!! So mod, beach babe! Stylish!
would you please make us all happier people by sharing how you’ve done those overly gorgeous kate hudson waves?
You look smashing – not just because of the plants and your freshly shaved man.
Thanks! I would like to do a tutorial either here or on ABM for the hair, so keep an eye out for that! 🙂
