I don’t know about you guys, but I get really really excited for summer every year. I feel like I spend most of the winter dreaming of somewhere warmer and planning our travel (and obviously the outfits that go along with) to keep me from going crazy.
My problem is that I get so excited about trips that I want to find a completely new summer wardrobe every year. I’ve learned over time that the key is to pick up pieces that you can wear with other items that you own. You need those staples, but it’s also fun to work in a trendier piece or two! This outfit is a perfect balance of that for me.
Vacations to me are a balance of relaxation and exploration. Some nights I want to get dressed up and feel more festive and others I want to throw on some easy and casual after a long day in the sun.
This look from head to toe is perfect for a trip to Mexico, Puerto Rico, or somewhere tropical. The top and these embroidered sandals add a fun punch of color and are perfect to pair with jean shorts for a casual day of exploring. It’s also an easy swap and makes for less pieces to pack! This crossbody bag goes with just about everything and is perfect for keeping your hands free for looking at souvenirs or you know, for a cocktail (or two!). For nighttime you can add this gorgeous white flowy skirt and even kick it up a notch with some heels.
There are tons of beach bound pieces all pretty much under $100 at ASOS – one of my go to sites for summer wear. What vacations are you looking forward to this summer?
