As a girl lucky enough to be born and raised in Southern California I have developed an addiction to warm weather. Part of this addiction is the clothes that come with it. I can never have too many bikinis, too many pairs of sandals, or too many cover ups. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am planning a tropical getaway for the end of the year. Since deciding to take this tropical fantasy and turn it into reality I have become all consumed with hunting for the perfect pieces to pack. Fortunately for me, Keaton Row has been adding items to the Resort area daily to keep me inspired!
I have always believed in dressing for occasions. The perfect LBD for a cocktail party, a flirty skirt/top for a birthday party, and lots of breezy, tropical clothes for vacation! I pulled a few looks into my Keaton lookbook the other day but these seem to be my faves….
As I begin thinking of items to purchase for this trip I am following a few simple rules:
1 – Look for items that can be worn multiple ways. Kaftans that can double as dresses, maxi skirts you can also wear as a dress, etc.
2 – Look for items that are a fit for the environment I will be traveling to. I love black clothing. I wear a lot of it. Black is not fitting for a balmy destination in the 80s.
3 – Keep the heels to a minimum. Shocking for me to say, I know! I love heels and find any excuse to wear them but a beachy locale is the exception to this rule. What better time to ditch the stilettos in favor of glam sandals?
This look for a balmy late afternoon of cocktails with a view has me drooling! This kaftan is versatile enough to throw over your bikini poolside or with a pair of nude strappy heels would look killer for a cocktail party.
I first saw this Topshop romper on Keaton Row and died a little. Then I was browsing Nordstrom at South Coast Plaza and saw it in person….absolute adoration is a understatment! It gives me visions of mojitos in Havana at sunset….SIGH…..
