30+ Warm Weather Vacation Outfits

February 17, 2020

And the reality has set in that I’m no longer in St Kitts anymore. Instead of waking up at the Park Hyatt and opening our eyes to the sunrise over the beautiful island of Nevis, I’m laying in bed here in Indiana with a hot pack over my eye trying to remove a stye and tending to my [not so] beautiful menstrual cramps. Nothing says “welcome home” like a swollen eye and a stomach that hates you. It was glorious while it lasted 😉 I will be doing a recap of our actual trip but today we’re going to start with the important stuff — what I wore while there. As you can see, there is no shortage of outfits that I packed and while I didn’t get to wear all of these while there [note to self: next time book trip for a month] I did get them all photographed to provide you with a plentiful supply of inspiration for warm weather vacation outfits! If you’re headed somewhere soon, you may want to take a few of these outfits with you!

Before we get into all of the outfits, 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 [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] 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! ps. If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!

    Love this post! So many great combinations, and you look amazing! (So sorry you’re fighting off the stye-such a pain). The suits you posted are super cute. What about more variety in sandal options just for fun? Tory B. will just never be in my sandal budget! Get well and get relief soon!

  2. kelley jana says:

    Thank you so much! Loved everything and I needed some ideas especially for swimsuits but you’re so popular (it’s a great thing- adore you) sizes are slim. I need another job! Lol. Beautiful and again thank you!!!

  3. Patti says:

    Hi Erin,
    Thank you for sharing all of these great outfits. Do you know if Backcountry restocks sizes? I love the green suit but they only have large & x-large sizes for the bikini bottom.

    • Erin Schrader says:

      They do restock here and there! We’ll keep an eye out for more sizes to come back in stock! xo

Let’s just say, until we started working on this post, I had no idea that there were different pillows for different sleep positions. I figured it was a one-size fits all approach, maybe just a preference of firm or soft! Well, needless to say, I was way off. I also learned that over 70% of […]
