If you're anything like us, you've been looking forward to summer since January 2nd. Winter was so harsh this year, it felt like the cold spell would never end. While we were holed up indoors, we dreamt of laying in the sand, drinking Mai Tais and eating fresh seafood. And now finally, the heat is here, so it's time to get out and enjoy it while it lasts!
Packing for a new destination can be tough, but the important thing is to narrow down what you're taking and pack things that can be mixed and matched to be worn in different ways. For example, a kimono works as a beach cover-up and then can be thrown over your dress for a night on the town. Good accessories are also key as they change up your look. Casual for day? Wear a maxi dress with flat sandals and a floppy hat. Then you can wear that same dress to dinner; simply add some nice jewelry and heels! Time to set that OOO message and get out of town!
Headed to a tropical resort? Pack your best bikini and don't forget the SPF! Evoke your inner mermaid with breezy accessories that pop with color.

Star in your own La Dolce Vita in an alluring one-piece and mesmerizing movie-star accessories for a beachside stroll. The floppy hat and straw bag work just as well for a day at the beach as with a dress for dinner.

DAY-TO-NIGHT ON THE TOWN
Layering is essential when you don't know how long you'll be out of the hotel; a kimono provides stylish coverage. Astonish in jewels and florals in a combination of precious metals and bold prints as you explore the city in absolute style.
