STYLE GURU STYLE: Resort Equals Vacation

For me, classic patterns like stripes and polka-dots evoke thoughts of Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn on vacation in the south of France. You know what picture I’m talking about. One of our favorite demure ladies standing on an impeccably decorated porch with her back to the ocean, wearing a boat neck ¾ sleeve polka-dot or striped shirt with some form fitting but comfortable shorts in light blue or light yellow. The epitome of vacation-cute. In the Thakoon resort 2016 collection, it’s as if Grace or Audrey traveled into the future and are now the normcore-It-Girls of 2016. The majority of the collection is monochrome black or white but the patterned looks really pull the whole thing together. I was most inspired by the polka-dot high waisted lounge pants.

For my look, I paired my speckled black and white pants with two white tank tops that I knotted into crop tops. This is one of my favorite style tips: any top can become a crop, just knot it!

Another amazing thing about this collection? The fact that every look was paired with flat sandals. Before “spring” is even whispered in the hall of the Season Gods (that’s a thing, right?), I’ve put away all of my boots and sneakers and anything that can’t be classified as a sandal or “strappy.” Seeing all of the flat sandals in this collection only solidified my obsession for the open-toed and buckled variety. I slipped on my favorite everyday silver jewelry and headed to the beach (I wish).

Get My Look: 1. A crisp white crop top. 2. Strappy black sandals. 3. High waisted flowy pants.
