As you can see I like to wear scarves on vacation because if it's sunny I can use it to shield myself or is it's cold I can wrap up to get warm. It also acts as a cushion for my camera strap because I lug my 5lb Canon with me everywhere I go!



We had a great time, had perfect weather and made lots of fun memories!

  7. I thought the Ralph Lauren skirt was a little old fashioned till I saw how you styled it! I love the striped dress with the green scarf too. Very pretty1 Glad you had such a good time!
