Are you one of the lucky ones taking a vacation to sunnier skies and warmer weather? As I sit inside right now, there are piles upon piles of snow outside my window and the gracing temperature of...let me check....21° (feels like 7°)... Great. So as you can imagine, I'm dreaming of a vacation; one with a beach and plenty of sun. If you feel the same, you might be planning a vacation or all ready have one scheduled and are eagerly awaiting your flight. What's left to do? Pack! I don't like packing, but if it's for vacation, I'd be packed a week beforehand with the suitcase at my door ready to go. So to make sure you embrace your packing with some fabulous vacation style, I've put together a few styles for you to rock on your much needed time in the sun!

Beach Chic

For Beach Chic, think French Riviera style. Or a vacation on a fancy yacht. Your outfit ensembles should be classy and timeless, with a bit of sass. Start with a sexy black one piece, cut just right, add a wide floppy sun hat and thick sun shades for a mysterious look (and of course sun protection). A black and white striped & structured tote plus chunky, polished sandals take the outfit up a notch and will cause those envious stares! Bring a light, loose cardigan to cover up when needed. Last but not least, bold red nails add just the touch of sass you want! Guerlain Nail Lacquer Rouge D'Enfer will give you that bright hue and glossy finish (my favorite nail polish)!

Free Spirit 

Looking for more of the adventurer style, embrace the free spirit. This style is perfect for walking around a beach town or for any of your beach vacation activities. Start with a colorful bathing suit (you can find some bright geometric or floral pattern suits like the one below from Forever 21). A light denim dress & panama hat will only up your style points for the time out in the sun & around town. For your sunnies, bring your Classic Rayban Aviators for a cool & edgy addition to this look. To carry all your beach essentials, a leather backpack will keep your items protected and adds a little sense of adventure. Easily jump from exploring town to the sand and water with relaxed slip on flip flops. And to tame those locks, bring Free People Shimmer Bead Elastic Hair Trio - these will look great in your hair, as well as on your wrist!

The Rebel

Even in the sun, you can't break away from black. But not to worry, there are some great beach pieces that will help you maintain that rebellious style and stay cool. This black swim top from Pac Sun has flare and functionality; somewhere in-between swimwear and crop top, you won't feel the need to cover up once you leave the beach (unless you're going out to a nice dinner). Add some denim shorts, black crochet flats, and Raybans for an effortlessly cool look. Next, your accessories will really bring out your unique style. We love this clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs! Paired with a cat ring, can it get any better?? And if you can't leave your music at home, even in the sun, skullcandy ear-buds are perfect to toss in your clutch with your other travel essentials.

You'll feel like you're on Gatsby's private beach in this retro inspired nautical look! Get ready for the ocean waves in a stunning retro suit - has some great options! Tight, high waisted shorts, patterned headband & chic sunglasses will complete your vintage vibe in stunning style. For the touch of nautical, add a maritime-themed graphic tank and boat shoes (red is a nice pop of color). But before you run out the door, throw your towel and mid-day snack, and perhaps a few drinks into this gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff tote!
