LOOKBOOK

15+ WARM WEATHER/VACATION OUTFITS

April 12, 2018

Holy lots of outfits. It turns out when you go on vacation you end up a) trying on one million and three hundred thousand outfits [approximately] and b) you pack one million and two hundred and ninety-five outfits for those six days because you know, just in case. Last week I ventured off to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a sun-soaked week with my family and it didn’t disappoint. While I’ll be sharing more about that vacation and where we stayed, what to do, where to eat, etc I thought I’d start by sharing the most important thing – what I wore 😉 If you are headed somewhere warm soon or are eagerly anticipating summer [SAME] here are a lot of outfits that can help you accomplish either!

Before we dive in, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!
