Throwback on a Hump Day with a Strapless Blue Floral Dress + Linkup.

Happy Hump Day you all! Throwing it back today with some previous Summer photos, from a past vacation (from a few years ago), that my husband and I spent in Durres, Albania. I have been running like a chicken with its head cut off lately and have had no time to edit my current outfit posts so in honor of Summer and especially since my own Summer vacation is less than two weeks away, I figured I would throw it back with these gorgeous photos of a beautiful beach (wish I was there now). Vivian is feeling much better after her mouth surgery last week, thank you to all for asking and all the prayers. I wish her appetite would get better though!

Yummy Shellfish Goodness!!
Yes, we are over-dressed for the beach but we wore these outfits since we were eating lunch at a fancy, classy seafood restaurant which was literally a few steps away from the beach. That is the Adriatic Sea behind us!

I own several strapless Summer Dresses but nothing to me symbolizes Summer like white+blue mixed together, better yet if it is in a floral pattern like this dress - the Ultimate Casual Summer Dress. I added some Silver-Tone Beads and some White Hoops. I accessorized with Olive Sunglasses and a Blue Cuff Bracelet. My Black+Cognac Leather Tote is not very Summery but I needed it to carry all of my things (like my swimsuit, flip-flops, all my makeup and everything else a girl needs). What would have made this outfit better is a floppy hat but I hadn't brought one with me. I still love this outfit and these photos though and would wear this again, in a heartbeat!
