Resort Essentials For Summer 2017
Posted on 26 May 2017
After spending hours upon hours working hard, it is time to treat yourself. Resort season is here, and we've compiled a list of some essentials to pack for your fun and relaxing getaway. Whether you're relaxing on the beaches of Hawaii, grabbing brunch on the Santa Monica Pier, at a pool party in Las Vegas, or dancing at the clubs in Miami we've selected items that are both stylish and functional.
1. Swimmingly Well
Pool, lake, beach, or river, packing a swimsuit is an absolute must for any resort getaway! We love this dreamy blue two-piece set by Victoria's Secret. The strappy details add a sexy element while the high neck and waist provide you with a little extra coverage for when you still want to wear a bikini. This marigold one piece features ribbed fabric and marigold yellow color to match the summer sun. It has a low V in the front and features an open back which gives it a flirty feel. The last bikini features a bandage style pattern and a different style bikini top that is reminiscent of a dress or tank top. The apricot color is both unique and flattering for pretty much any skin tone.

2. Design Layout
Even if you're not planning to go into to the water, it is always nice to have a towel on hand to lay out on. Having a fun patterned towel makes the experience of laying out and getting sun-kissed all more enjoyable. We love these playful prints because they capture the enjoyable essence of summer.

3. Good Kind Of Shade
Hats aren't just for fashion. The great thing about these styles of hats is not only are they fashionable but they are also functional by provide you with some shade and keeping excess sun away from your face. Whether it is at the pool, with a sun dress, or shorts and shirt, these hats can be easily styled for a variety of outfits while giving you some health benefits.

4. Here Comes The Sun
While it is nice to go outside during the summer, it can take a toll on your body. Having an effective deodorant that keeps you smelling fresh all day is a must for those of us who are prone to sweating easily. What we love about this Tarte deodorant is that it keeps you smelling nice without harsh chemicals. Sunscreen should be worn all year round but especially during the summer. To help prevent wrinkles and other early signs of aging, applying sunscreen is a must. What we love about this Sephora Sun Safety Kit is that you can sample a variety of different sunscreens to help you figure out which kind works best before making a larger size purchase. Having a lip balm with SPF is also important, it is easy to forget to apply sunscreen to this area but your lips are also prone to wrinkles. Having a lip balm with SPF makes it much easier to remember to show your lips some love and care.

5. Eye Catching
Just like hats, sunglasses help make a fashion statement while also protecting your eyes. However, make sure to pick up a pair of sunnies that specifically states that it has UV protectant lenses. Sunglasses are the perfect way to add some color and an element of playfulness to an outfit. Or you can toughen up a look with some dark sunnies for a mysterious bad girl chic appeal.

6. Creature Of Comfort
Ankle lace tie up flats are equally classy and fun. This comfortable flat can add some spice to any casual minimalistic outfit or be worn with dress. This style is perfect for almost any occasion on your resort stay.
Having a flat sandal during spring and summer is a must. What we love about our Wrapped Up Sandals is that they can easily transition from the beach to walking around the city to a dinner date with your friends at night.
For those days when you're just wanting to be extra comfy and stylish, we suggest packing a pair of our Wild One Slide Sandals in silver. The metallic detail adds some shine to your outfit while the slip on element makes it easy for them to be thrown on. These shoes a perfect for the pool and walking around.

7. Stand Tall
Strut your stuff for all those cute Instagram pictures in our Mojave Dream Fringe Stacked Heel Bootie. This chunky heel bootie is perfect to wear for exploring the town and for a romantic summer night out. What we love about this style is that it can dress up an outfit but can also be easily styled with simple casual wear.
Sandals are the classic shoe of spring and summer, and our Modern Muse Metallic Sandals add a twist to this classic style with shine. This low heel sandal can be worn casually in the sand or dressed up night in the club. The block heel adds comfort so you won't have to put your resort exploring on hold.
Wedges are perfect for making any outfit appear more posh. What we love about this swarm weather wedge is that they have the comfort of a sandal and the classiness of heel. You can frolic around during the day and dance all night in this style.
