Mojitos and Palm Trees

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…..
