One thing my sister and I didn’t consider while preparing for the cruise was the time we would spend on the boat. My sister and I both under-packed and we were left with long stretches of time where we had to nothing to do (which doesn’t sound that bad on a cruise ship full of food and whirlpools, but we could have maximized our relaxation, you know? :P)
I had an excuse for how sparingly I packed for the cruise, because I went straight from final exam > airplane > home > cruise port. Books wouldn’t have fit in my carryon. And there was no use for electronics when the cruise ship charged $5 per day for access to social media sites and SIXTEEN DOLLARS per day for full Internet access. At these exorbitant prices, my sister and I set out to amuse ourselves by taking pictures and watching movies on the giant screen overlooking the giant pool.
Dress: Sammydress, I found two similar options here: 1) this blue and white swim coverup has longer sleeves 2) this dressier option has a similar print and a sash! // Shoes: Jack Rogers (similar here in metallic) //Bracelets: F21 // Statement necklace: F21 (old), love this similar one from F21
One of the few dresses I did bring on the cruise was this lovely Sammydress blue and white maxi with little buttons all the way up the front. A long time ago, Sammydress had asked to sponsor my blog. To determine the quality of their products, I secretly ordered a few items from their site before agreeing to the sponsorship. This dress was one of the ones I ordered and the quality was decent, but I still turned down the sponsorship because I found out that it was a direct copy of a Spell dress. I should know better than to buy infringing copycat items since I am a lawyer-in-training, so sadly, this dress will be one of the only Sammydress items I will ever own. Still, the print photographs beautifully, just this once!
