Good morning! We got home from our Harbour Island (Bahamas) trip last night and I feel relaxed and rejuvenated. A good vacation of little to do but indulge and read good books on the beach is exactly what I needed. Josh and I loved exploring Harbour Island – and saying that we fell in love with the island is putting it lightly. In large part we have The Dunmore to thank for that. We stayed there for 5 nights and it was pure bliss. The beauty, service, the resort design, the amazing people who work there… I could go on and on. It’s very comfortable and inviting and consists of just 13 cottages. Heaven on Earth. I feel like we have a whole family of Bahamian friends now.

I’m happy as a clam here on a pink sand beach in my lemlem berta tunic and kate spade beach bag. Here’s a close up of the sand – it’s unreal!

The Dunmore’s dining room is just as exquisite and inviting as it can be.

What’s a beach trip without some floral cover up pants – these are Victoria’s Secret and are so soft! And of course my Ray-Bans I always wear…  (they’re 25% off now!)

The lobster quesadilla at Sip Sip – amazing.

Island shopping…

My favorite shop on the island was definitely India Hicks’ shop Sugar Mill. Her friend Stephanie of Figue was having a trunk show and I just loved chatting with them.

I scooped up this dress! In love with it.

Another charming store on the island…

Brought my JOA dress! If they made it in 5 colors I’d buy all of them.

Naturally I had to bring a little bit of Charleston to the beach in form of a few good books by Dorothea Benton Frank on my Kindle Paperwhite.

The “beach bathroom” at the Dunmore…

Hello amazing pineapple fence.

The Dunmore also has a lovely pool pavilion with an exercise area, a massage area, and a lounge area complete with the cutest backgammon table I’ve ever seen. Josh and I loved our daily games.

And all around the resort you’ll find these swinging chairs – I need some of these here at home, they’re so fun! It’s blurry, but I’m in my smock floral dress.

Brought along my boardwalk tunic dress.

Whew, that was a lot of pictures. Point is – the vacation was amazing and I highly recommend you pay a visit to Harbour Island in the Bahamas if you haven’t been before. I can’t recommend The Dunmore enough – we’ll definitely be back!

  27. Kristin says:

    Hi! Gorgeous photos.. My questions are.. How does the joa dress run and can you share your necklace sources from the pics? Thx!!

    • Chassity says:

      Hey thanks Kristin! The dress runs pretty true to size and maybe even large since it’s so billowy. I have a size small. And the necklaces are all island buys so I can’t really link to them. Sorry about that. Good luck with the dress – it’s the best!
