WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

I prefer the term ‘STAY-cation.’ But hey, vacation works too. Vacations should be effortless, easy and a mix of items that can be worn more than one way to prevent the ever dreaded: over-packer. I am guilty of this on multiple occasions. One time in particular is when my jewelry bag alone weighed 20 pounds. Pack light, my friends! Beach trips were meant for packing light. You are basically rocking a bikini all day anyway.

This perfect island in the sun, getaway-look that this Fashionista is literally killing the game with is so simple to achieve. It is one that can be mixed and matched as well. With the combination of the ever so on-trend palm printed set and the simple gold elements added from the jewelry, you are 100% guaranteed to look like a sun-kissed goddess. The gold really plays off of her tanned skin, and the flow of the shirt and skirt together really make this look completely effortless and easy. Easy, breezy, beautiful, you go girl!

Every beach vacation needs a straw tote. It’s seriously a must. Finding one that matches your personality and style is half of the fun! Gladiator sandals and the beach go hand in hand. They are easy to throw on and still spice up the outfit with just enough pep.

One Simple Change: If we throw a hot date night into the mix of this island getaway, this look is so easy to transform into just that. By switching out the gladiator sandals and replacing them with a nude, ankle strap heel, it transforms this daytime beach look into one that is ready to break some hearts.
