Getaway fashion checklist.

It’s cold out there guys! The post holiday blues have set in and now it’s below zero, or at least it feels that way. It’s the time of year when, if you’re lucky enough, you fly south for a brief (or not so brief) respite from this exhausting and depressing weather. Sometimes you need to pick up a few things for the trip, be it a swimsuit, cover-up or sundress; there are lots of options out there and it can be overwhelming. Let me help!

Here are some of my favorite pieces I’ve found that are perfect for that warm weather getaway. Click the images to view and purchase.

First up, my favorite, sundresses. A must have warm weather piece. They are so versatile you can wear them anywhere from the beach with slides to dinner with strappy sandals.

Swim. As far as swimwear goes, I’ve really been enjoying the simplicity of current trends, like this polka dot bikini from Eberjay.

Beach cover-ups. I love ones that can double as a sundress or cocktail dress, like this one from Mikoh Pakala. I would wear this to the beach or throw on my favorite pair of sneakers to go to brunch.

The best part about this dress is the back…

Shorts. I love high-waisted shorts right now. So chic! This pair is from Parker and looks great with a white tank or a nice button down to dress it up.

Sandals. I like to have fun with my footwear so these rainbow Manolo Blahniks are perfect for that.

For something more neutral that will go with anything,  these Sam Edelman slides are perfect…

Proenza Schouler PA

One of the perks of my job is that we have public appearances by some of the top designers in the industry. Last week the designers for Proenza Schouler, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez came to the store for an event. They spoke about their Spring and Fall 2018 collections, the launch of their new fragrance, Arizona, and a little about their background as designers. Their spring collection is very feminine with the use floral prints, silk and lace materials and flowing silhouettes. The Fall 2018 collection is quite a departure, drawing inspiration from “women’s lib” and the artist Sheila Hicks whose use of fibers and hardware is seen as very Americana and a reflection of the hardworking women of past generations. Metals, fringe, and tie dye fabrics are used to emulate the modern women of defiance and strength.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the Fall collections. To shop the brand click here or on the images below.
