Resort Collection // Resort Wear // Resort outfit // Vacation // Vacation Outfits // Summer Fashion The Resort Collection Is HERE!

I don’t know if I have ever been more excited for a collection of clothing to hit the internet shelves [aside from Gibson x Living in Yellow of course] but the new Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Resort collection that launched TODAY at Nordstrom.com is officially the most vibrant and FUN collection of clothing that is beyond perfect for your next vacation or summer wear! This couldn’t have launched at a better time as we depart next week on our cruise and you better believe I am taking every. single. piece. with me. Whether you are looking for a new dress, some cute tops to wear out or a lightweight pair of shorts or pants, there is something for everybody here! Additionally, this collection was designed as a true capsule so that you can pack only these pieces and be set for your entire vacation [many of which pair well together]! I have a good feeling that by the end of this post, you’ll have a vacation booked just so you have an excuse to purchase and wear all of this goodness.

Before we dive in, let’s get the sizing logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for 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] Speaking of bras, for this collection you will want to make sure you have a good strapless bra. I can’t recommend this one MORE. It is the only one that has stayed in place and supported my ladies and actually remains comfortable all day long!  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, ladies, let’s dive in!

  1. Catalina Ruffle Hem Romper / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 3 Colors & Prints!

I love that you can dress this romper up with wedges or heels for an event or date night OR pair with sandals and a denim jacket for a more low key evening or day dates. Speaking of wedges, you are going to be seeing a LOT of these guys in this post. They are the only wedge I seem to wear all spring and summer long as they are so comfortable and I love all of the color options!

2. Palm Springs Casual Strappy Maxi Dress / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 3 Colors & Prints!

Maxi Dress // Vacation Dress // Outfit for Vacation // Spring Break Outfit Hi Sugarplum! Palm Springs Festival Maxi Dress // Sam Edelman Gigi Sandal [size up .5] // Day Clutch Vegan Clutch // BaubleBar Rubina Beaded Tassel Earrings

It is no secret that I have a thing for a great maxi dress. I always wear them on vacation or summer evenings! The best part? Because this is fully lined, I got away with not having to wear to any bra with it which makes me 100% more times likely to wear it constantly. If it’s cooler, simply pair it with a denim jacket and you’re set!

3. Laguna Soft Jersey Ruffled Racerback Dress / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 3 Colors & Prints!

Oh my, oh my. This dress is SO SOFT and so comfortable. It’s like wearing pajamas but you actually look adorable and presentable to go out. You could wear this as a swimsuit coverup if you wanted to rock it super casual, or dressed up for dinner or dressed down with sandals. The world is your oyster with this one, I can promise you, you want it.

4. Naples Swing Halter Dress / Fit Tip: Size down if in between, wearing in XS / 5 Colors & Prints!

Naples Swing Halter Dress // Treasure & Bond Sannibel Platform Wedge Sandal [size up .5] //Mavi Jeans ‘Samantha’ Denim Jacket [size up if in between] //BaubleBar Granita Beaded Tassel Earrings

How cute is this swing dress? Also fully lined just like the maxi dress which means yet again, no bra [miracles people, miracles]. I love the tie back and the length [I am wearing in regular length here for 5’4. I could have gotten away with petite most likely but don’t mind it a little longer]! I will absolutely be buying this in more colors!

5. Carmel Tie Back V-Neck Tank / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 4 Colors & Prints!
Vacation Outfit // Summer Fashion // Date Night Outfit // White skinny Jeans
I just died and went to tank heaven. I can’t get enough of this tie back halter which is the most flattering hi/low cut with the perfect v-neck [not too low]. The ridiculously cute prints don’t hurt it either. Will you ever see me wearing anything but this tank from now on? WHO KNOWS.

6. Malibu Racerback Embroidered Tank / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 3 Colors!

Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra

Dying over the detail on this one. I love a good party in the back and this tank delivers fully. Now I just need to decide which other colors I want to buy it in [hint: ALL]. 

7. Seaside Soft Jersey Easy Lounge Romper / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 4 Colors & Prints!

Do you remember the material that I was talking about in the ruffle back dress above? Well guess what friends, this romper is made of that same magic. This romper is a great swimsuit coverup option OR a great casual outfit. Extra points because it has pockets!

8. Santa Fe Rickrack Off The Shoulder Top / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 4 Colors!

Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra

Somebody pass me a margarita because I’m ready for a Mexican Fiesta in this cutie! I love the rickrack detail on this and how they made the off the shoulder portion considerably tight so that it shouldn’t ride up much when you wear it!

9. Summerland Scoop Pocket Tank – 5 colors & prints! Fit Tip: Size down if in between, wearing in XS + Sedona Wide Leg Pant – 2 colors available! Fit Tip: true to size, wearing in XS

I wasn’t sure what I would think about these pants when I first opened them but now, I think I am hooked. Not only are they super lightweight and airy, they are so comfortable and quite cute. I love how well they pair with these scoop neck tanks which are a perfect staple for all summer long! ps. I got away with wearing a regular bra with these tanks!

10. Savannah Embroidered Trim Tee / Fit Tip: Runs large, size down, wearing in XS / 4 Colors!

Savannah Embroidered Yoke Tee // Jen7 Release Hem Stretch Skinny Ankle Jeans [true to size] // Treasure & Bond Sannibel Platform Wedge Sandal  [size up .5] // BaubleBar Rubina Beaded Tassel Earrings

My heart loves embroidered detail and so does my chest. This tee is super comfortable and lightweight and also gives me a little bit of that Mexican fiesta flare. I think it is absolutely adorable! I would recommend sizing down as it does run large.

11. Summerland Scoop Pocket Tank – 5 colors & prints! Fit Tip: Size down if in between, wearing in XS + Sedona Wide Leg Pant – 2 colors available! Fit Tip: true to size, wearing in XS + Cabo Drawstring Shorts – 2 colors available! Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS

Yellow, you know I can’t live without it. I was stoked to see this tank available in this color. It pairs so well with this blue color that they brought into both styles of bottoms. These drawstring shorts are such a cute take on a lightweight non pair of denim [that look like denim] and are super comfortable as well!

12. Carmel Tie Back V-Neck Tank / Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS / 4 Colors & Prints!Cute Summer Outfit // Transitional Outfit // Denim Jacket // White Skinny Jeans // Polka Dot Top // Spring Fashion Hi Sugarplum!

Talk about having a Pretty Woman moment with this one. This may just be my favorite item in the whole collection. I think the brown dot print is so fun and really does bring back all of the Julia Roberts vibes.

Again with the tank and the drawstring shorts. An effortless comfortable look for a day on the go [or a day at the pool]!

This is the same maxi that you saw above, just in a different print! Have I mentioned that it has POCKETS? Well surprise, dreams do come true!

Seaside Soft Jersey Lounge Romper // Treasure & Bond Sannibel Platform Wedge Sandal [size up .5] // BaubleBar Rubina Beaded Tassel Earrings

This is the same romper from above, but I wanted to show it to you in a more dressed up way. While it’s super cute around the pool or at the beach, it’s equally cute for a dinner out [I’m thinking somewhere near the water please] by simply pairing it with wedges instead of sandals!

16. Scottsdale Oversized Button Down Tunic / Fit Tip: Size down if in between, wearing in XS / 2 Colors + Cabo Drawstring Shorts – 2 colors available! Fit Tip: True to size, wearing in XS 

Hi Sugarplum! Scottsdale Oversize Button Down Tunic // Hi Sugarplum! Cabo Drawstring Shorts // Aerie Push Up Underwire Bikini Top // Aerie Bikini Bottom

Last but certainly not least, this oversized tunic! As you can see here, I’m wearing it as a swimsuit coverup [I promise that’s not a matching set of bra and undies ;)] but could quickly throw it on with shorts and do a front little tie to dress it up! It’s ultra lightweight and breezy, perfect for days at the beach!
