If you follow me on Instagram (@skirttherules_) and Snapchat (username: SkirtTheRules), then you probably saw that James and I had a quick getaway to Bermuda a few weeks ago. It happened to be the same weekend as Winter Storm Jonas, so the timing was perfect!

Unfortunately, we had a series of misfortunate events where we 1) made a mad dash to the gate as the doors were closing, 2) lost our camera somewhere in between security and the plane and 3) ended up getting caught in a torrential downpour for most of the trip (not evident in this photos) thanks to being on the periphery of Jonas. Nevertheless, Bermuda was beautiful and I’m already missing it! To battle the tropical withdrawals, I thought I’d share a roundup for the photos we did manage to snap on my phone.

Aside from the rain, the weather was perfect with temps fluctuating between high 60s and low 70s (I’ll take it in late January!). We managed to lay by the pool and walk along the beach when the sun was out. During the rest of the day, a flowy crop top (there’s a better picture of it here) and my favorite pair of denim leggings was enough to keep me warm as we explored the island.

Skirt The Rules / Casual Striped Dress with Pockets

I also brought along this striped linen dress because it was love at first sight (just look at those oversized pockets!). During our first evening on the island, I threw on a cozy cardigan as we headed to the city center of Hamilton for dinner. It’s not really possible to trek around island by foot, but taking the bus was pretty easy (just super slow). We walked along Front Street, which is pretty much the hub for island nightlife, and had dinner at The Pickled Onion.

Skirt The Rules / Must Have Summer Sandals

One of the most difficult things that I have with packing is figuring out which shoes I’m going to bring, so I tried to keep it simple by limiting myself to three on this trip. An easy flat sandal, a closed-toe shoe and a pair of heels covered all of my bases … and they just all happen to be a shade of tan.

Skirt The Rules / Striped Trapeze Dress

Another recurring theme in my vacation wardrobe? Stripes, stripes and more stripes. This black and white striped swing dress is another keeper. You can’t see in this photo, but it has short sleeves and the perfect trapeze shape to hide all of the rum swizzles that I drank on the trip.

Skirt The Rules / Southampton, Bermuda

We only had one day of decent sunshine, so you better believe I was out by the water for as much as possible. It was also the first time I’ve ever worn a one-piece swimsuit. Not sure why I was always self-conscious about it (especially since I’m totally fine wearing a two-piece), but wearing this striped number from Target was a dream. You can check my Instagram for a better look at the front – the draping is so flattering!

Skirt The Rules / Striped Long Sleeve Dress

This was my last outfit of the trip – and yes, I pretty much made 2-3 wardrobe changes everyday because why not? This long-sleeve knit dress was actually perfect for the cool temps and breezy weather. I can’t wait to visit the island again during warmer weather! Have you been to Bermuda before? I’d love to hear about your experience!

Bright Bouquet

Skirt The Rules // Floral Maxi Dress

Ann Taylor double pendant necklace // Kate Spade ‘Sailors Knot’ hinged bangle // Kendra Scott ‘Andy’ station cuff (c/o)
Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mini MAB’ tote (40% off!)

Does this bright floral print look familiar? I wore the romper version a few weeks ago and I just had to have the maxi dress too. Everything about this punchy print screams summer vibes, so I let the dress do all the talking by pairing with a simple necklace, a crispy white crossbody bag and my favorite little bangle. I totally recommend scooping up the print up for yourself ASAP!
