five vacation outfit ideas


So, first of all: how cute is my vitamin sea hat? I tried on three hats at J.Crew the other day before my trip to Palm Beach and it took me forever to decide between them! After confirming with an Instagram story poll, I chose this one and I'm really pleased with it. 

Speaking of Palm Beach, I'm sure we're all thinking about our upcoming summer vacations and with that comes planning out your outfits. After all, that's one of my favorite parts of vacation---the endless opportunities for cute looks. 

I have five outfit ideas for you today and I love them all because they really work for just about any kind of warm weather trip. Whether you're going to the beach in Florida, California, or New England or a tropical spot like Tulum or Bali, these work. Even if you're headed for a city like Paris, Barcelona, or Lisbon, these outfits are perfect for the job.

ONE | striped midi dress, oversized tortoise sunglasses, gold hoop earrings, flat espadrilles.
This easy striped dress pairs so well with bohemian fringed espadrilles, sculptural metallic earrings, and old Hollywood sunglasses. The neutral palette is made more interesting by mixing textures and summer-worthy patterns.

TWO | rainbow dress, wrap sandal, colorful bag, bold statement earrings.
I love this outfit because it's bursting with color and personality. I took a bit of inspiration from one of Paola Alberdi's outfits from her trip to La Paz. Pair a colorful frock with wrap sandals, a punchy bag, and textured statement earrings.

THREE | white blouse, denim shorts, basket bag, silk hair scarf.
This is truly a look that works for any destination, provided the weather is warm. A voluminous white blouse always looks classic with a pair of denim shorts. For that French girl vibe, add a basket bag and tie your hair back with a silk scarf.

FOUR | white tee, striped shorts, converse, beach tote.
This look will take you from the beach/pool to a casual dinner and back again. I love these tie-front tees that add a little bit of interest to a closet staple. Pair it with some cute, striped shorts with a little ruffle detail. You could also swap these out for a gingham pair. Keep things casual with a pair of Converse or switch out for wedges if you need to dress it up. Finish the look with a beachy carry-all tote.

FIVE | straw hat, striped top, white denim shorts, small cross-body bag.
This look is about as classic summer as you can get. Can't you just see Audrey Hepburn in this outfit? Try your simple sailor striped top paired with white denim shorts and a straw hat, but add a modern cross-body bag for contemporary twist. This is the kind of look that will have you glowing and turning heads.
