lust list // island getaway

After the holidays have passed, there's one and one thing only on my mind... warm weather.  I appreciate each season, but can't help but wish for lazy summer days spent on the beach.  Stores are debuting their spring pieces and it's just leaving me wishing more and more for an island getaway.  If you had each of these items below packed in your suitcase for a tropical vacation, where would you want to go? I absolutely adored St. Lucia, but am dying to see the Virgin Islands, St. Barths, and Hawaii. Heck, I'd gladly settle for Florida at this point. Just get me somewhere warm, but not without these clothes.


1// If you wore this Mara Hoffman Maxi Dress, you seriously wouldn't need anything else.  Beachy waves and sun-kissed skin are the only accessories it needs.   2 // This Seafolly Pom Pom Kaftan is the cutest thing I've ever seen.  I want to wear it over my bathing suit all day with a big brimmed hat and sandals.  3 // And how perfect would this Tassili Elephant Scarf look with cut off denim shorts and an airy white top?  You could take that scarf through all seasons, actually.  4 // This Woodthrush Bracelet Set gives such a chic, yet effortless vibe.  5 // This Nanette Lepore Swimsuit - no words.  6 // Take me on vacation with no shoes but these Ferran Sandals and I'd be just fine.  7 // These Pilcro Chino Shorts look so comfortable and the prettiest mint color.  8 //  And this Touche Colorblocked Swimsuit - such a unique piece!  The color blocking looks perfectly placed to flatter any shape.


  1. That pom-pom kaftan is calling my name! Summer will be here before we know it :)

  2. That orange bathing suit is, in every way, amazing. This garnet loving Carolina fan would even wear it. :)

  3. I love every piece in the newest Mara Hoffman line! Come on down to Florida it is definitely still warm here right now :-)
