Dreaming of Resort Wear with SwimSpot

O how I dream of warmer places, especially as the weather here in NYC drops. I'm jealous of everyone about to take their vacations in warm climate destinations,  I mean we are on the brink of Resort season. So here we are at the start of winter and what do I get in the mail-- a swim suit courtesy of SwimSpot. Such a tease. Especially with the fact that I won't be going away anytime soon, saving up for a and all. But gosh do I love this Splendid swim suit. The bikini top has my all time favorite neckline, the sweetheart neckline, and the cutesy flower print make the swimsuit super adorable. Instead I will pretend as if I'm going away and sit in my hot apartment pretending I'm down in the Caribbeans drinking pina you what I would wear with my Splendid Farmer's Market Bikini.

Dress: Roxy, Swimsuit: Splendid c/o SwimSpot, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, 
Hat: c/o Ann Taylor, Sunglasses: Karen Walker

Beach Wear:
Beach wear...pool wear...wherever you go to lounge on your vacation it should be the simplest and easiest look of all. This is the one time where wearing less (literally) is best. And the easiest clothing you can take on and off is appropriate A simple tunic or sundress is always my go to beach wear.

Shirt: Zara, Jeans: DIY Tie-Dye, Swimsuit: Splendid c/o SwimSpot, Bag: c/o Lodinatt
Flip Flips: Old Navy, Sunglasses: Karen Walker

About Town:
When strolling about a beach town I love going for the basics like cut off shorts, tank tops, and flip flops. If you're in a beachy place like Miami a bathing suit under every outfit is a must. You never know when you'll end up on the beach...but you can consider that pretty much a done deal.

Shirt: Tommy Hilfger, Shorts: DIY cut-offs, Swimsuit: Splendid c/o SwimSpot, Bag: c/o Lodinatt
Sunglasses: Raybans, Sneakers: Puma

If you're the adventurous type you know that a pair of sneakers on a vacation is a must. I know that when my fiancee and I were in Hawaii we were roaming about different trails on the searching for waterfalls; so sneakers, a tote bag that carried everything from water to lotion (plus room for flip flops), and clothing that allowed me to breathe was essential. A swimsuit underneath is needed so that taking your shirt off won't be deemed inappropriate.

What do you wear on your vacations?

  13. I couldn't agree more! Sneakers are the number one item~ and never leave home without your mascara!! I have the fantasy of being asked to slip only a bikini in my bag and being whisked away on an impromptu vacation to somewhere below the equator!!! xx
