When February is over, and it’s March, at least around here in the NW, people start getting really antsy for really good weather. Although we certainly have sunny, clear, and pleasant days in between now and June, usually it’s not warm enough for the outside pool until about July.
A lot of families we know start going on resort, and beach vacations right about now. It’s
also usually time I start receiving reader emails asking my opinion on what to wear to trips to tropical islands, or various resorts.I put together 9 of my latest resort wear essentials you can
1. Crochet Waist Insert Beach Dress | ASOS | $41
2. Towel | Rip Curl | $39
3. Floral Swimsuit | Topshop | $60
4. Floppy Straw Hat | Loft | $44
5. Sunglasses | Vince Camuto | $85
6. Tank Dress | Felicity & Coco | $68
7. Gladiator Sandals | Loft | $49
8. Metallic Beach Tote | Echo | $78
9. River Island Beach Dress | ASOS | $46
My family’s schedule probably won’t allow us to take a beach vacation until summer, so if you are going soon, please bring back some sunshine, sand, shells, and ocean air for me. 🙂
First of all I am loving this ASOS River Island Beach Dress. It’s so colorful, and has just the right tropical feel, perfect for vacationing at a resort. This dress would take you from the beach right to lunch at the resort restaurant. Enjoy sitting on a patio with it, and sip a drink with an umbrella.
I bought these Loft Online Exclusive Sandals, and they are on sale right now. Great for any summer day, in any location, I think they’ll see me through this summer getting worn in my everyday life. Florals are in once again this year. I think this Topshop swimsuit would flatter a lot of different body types, and is super cute, and cheerful.

This Golden Tote dress was a part of their monthly sale a long while ago. I was traveling overseas, and missed this particular sale. Luckily one of my friends knew I really wanted the dress, and gave it as a birthday gift to me. I think saying I was happy would be an understatement. It was such a nice surprise. <3 ( Sign up to Golden Tote’s newsletter here to receive notices of monthly sales, and style tips from the owners- they have the best value clothing subscription I think, in terms of getting your $’s worth.)
I think it’s the best dress for a resort vacation. I would wear it for a nice dinner with my hubby, and before the dinner we would probably watch the sunset in a beautiful place similar to where I took these pictures. Ah summer dreaming…
Loving the temporary metallic tattoos I received from the cute Etsy shop Shine On Miami. Perfect for a non-tattoo girl like me who doesn’t want to commit to permanent ink, these shiny metallic temporary pretties are such lovely accessories for summer. (I think you would love them even if you had permanent tattoos.)
They go on so easily in just about 30 seconds, and mine stayed on my skin completely intact until I rubbed them off with my loofah in the shower after about 5 days. They are a very affordable alternative to conventional accessories, and it’s so fun to try a new metallic temp. tattoo every week. I am onto the elephants right now. 🙂

There are even metallic tattoos you can turn into a bracelet like I did above. I was complimented on this one quite a bit.
