My Resort Picks- for your vacation!

Over the last few weeks we have had some serious weather.  Between negative temps, 6 inches of snow,a random 50 degree day, then coming right back to winter temperatures- my mind is very confused as to what I should be wearing and I have seriously gotten the itch to take a trip and see some real sunshine.  Unfortunately, Eric's job schedule is super tough.  He works in trauma so he is on call a lot over the weekends, which leads us not being able to take many vacations this year.

A lot of you had inquired about what my favorite resort pieces are as you're taking trips to Mexico, the Caribbean and Florida- you lucky chicks.  So instead of packing my own bags, I wanted to virtually help you pack yours and live vicariously through you.

Travel Day:
I love a cute travel outfit & I always layer because flights are usually chilly and my destination almost never has the same climate.

I purchased this blazer sweater a few weeks ago then made my mom buy it a week after I did.  I posted it on instagram yesterday and so many of you loved it too! I wear it over everything & it's the perfect oversized fit (I got an XS & it is still oversized so I recommend going down one size or two even). I think this is going to be adorable layered with a white tee, shorts and sneakers going into spring too. It is definitely one of those pieces that isn't going to go out of style and is going to be something you reach for continually.  I also love this longer grey sweatshirt cardi for a bit more casual look & to gain a little more length.

My Travel outfit would be: This blazer, this tee, these jeans, these loafers (dupes here, also loving these pink sneakers), this carry on & this tote (in the black and pink combo)

Beach Day: 
I am alll about a one piece these days. I mean who doesn't want to be able to eat a quesadilla and a drink piña colada poolside and not really worry about the flat tummy issue...just saying.  I am definitely snagging one of these Solid & Striped swim suits this year.  I coveted them all last summer and I will definitely be pulling the plug later this season in anticipation for a trip.  I bought this little suit & sunnies pouch on Blk Friday because I have been looking for something like it FOREVER.  Both Eric's parents and my parents have lake houses- when you're headed out on the boat you don't want to take a full tote because it is a bit excessive- this little pouch is perfect to keep your sunnies, a brush and your phone in. It will be getting a TON of use this year.

My Beach Outfit would be: This one piece or this one, these cutoff shortsthese sandals, & these sunnies. Also loving this coverup, this blue ruffle bikini and this white one piece

Too much sun, not a beach person, lunch date- whatever the case- sometimes you aren't in a swimsuit the entire day on a trip & you want to be cute while shopping or running errands.  I love a basket bag for 30thousand reasons but mainly because they hold their structure and there are so many different variations to this style of bag.  This one is really simple and will remain a great vacation tote for years to come- a basket bag will never go out of style anywhere near water.

My Daytime outfit would: A basket bag with these sandals (which I HAVE to own by spring), these cutoff shorts and this tee. Also loving this jumper  and this gingham dress which both would look so cute with these bow sandals as well.

A Night Out:
Everyone loves to get dolled up to go out when they are out on vacation.  You feel refreshed and you have to flaunt your newly tanned legs- that's your well deserved right of passage as a vacationer! I adore this blush dress.  It is the perfect amount of sexy and classy (also killer for a 'guest of' dress if you're going to an event soon!)

My night out outfit would be: this dress (also love this one and this one), these shoes, this clutch

The 'Inbetween-er': 

A dress & heels it too much, but need something more than jeans and a tee?  I got you- These espadrilles have been seen on every blogger ever for the last two years.  They're equal parts flattering, comfortable, affordable and go with absolutely everything- enter: they sell out every spring.  This year, the designer gave them a bit of an update and I have to admit, these are currently in my cart.  I love the texture and I think this palette will go with everything I own.

My 'inbetweener' outfit would be these espadrilles, this dress, these sunnies & Grapefruit clutch  with a pop of color on my lips- this lip in color 'MIGHTY' is my favorite pink.  Not overbearing, but gives you that extra color you were looking for.
Evenings In:
Something about going away always makes me want a new set of pajamas.  I think it's because you  stay in your pajamas a little bit longer in the mornings knowing that you don't have to scoot off to work.  I love to snag a new pair for trips just for that extra bit of excitement...and you guys know I LOVE myself some good loungewear.  This pink & green floral set stole my heart.

I am also loving this little pajama romper, and this ivory loungewear set.  Add a my favorite face mask, and your night in is complete.
