FASHION FROM ABROAD: Tropical Vacation

FASHION FROM ABROAD: Tropical Vacation

This spring break, I decided to escape the 20-degree weather in NYC for something a bit more bearable (I am a Cali girl after all!). I flew down to Fisher Island, Florida, then to the Bahamas for a little R&R in the sun after a stressful midterm season. Needless to say, I was totally okay with missing out on the blizzard.

This academic year, I’ve been noticing a ton of graphics when it comes to fashion. Anything from funny phrases printed across T-shirts to cute cartoons on beanies or even fruit-themed embellishments on dresses can be found all over campus. So when I came across this fashionista strolling along the Floridian coast, I knew I had to ask where she found her adorable lime flip flops, embroidered hat, and striped tote (that colorful mini pom-pom cover-up of course caught my eye as well!).

This fun yet girly look pulls the graphics together perfectly by concentrating on fitting them into the details, such as the hat, the tote, and the shoes rather than the cover-up, which is the center of the outfit. It can be difficult to put several different graphics, especially when more than one of them includes wording because putting them too close together can cause the graphics to clash or the messages to get jumbled together, but this Fashionista pulled the look off seamlessly.

Pom-poms are especially big in resort wear right now, which we can see in details here, both in the hat and in the vertical line of the cover-up. They’re a fun way to add a little something extra to your look, whether you’re lounging by the pool or even just walking around exploring a new city in the sun!
