We are beach bound sans le bébé for the holiday. Whooooo! High fives all around ammaright? I am (clearly) super excited to be heading to Key West to celebrate a big birthday with our best friends. It has been a while since I've been to South Florida (that whole Zika bit really through a wrench in my beach travel for a bit) so I am beyond thrilled. Where does a chic traveler always channel the first waves of excitement? Wardrobe, duh. I have a habit of treating destination travel like my trial run for when I am a wardrobe stylist for an over the top musical. What? Doesn't everyone? No?
Here is a look at how things are shaping up, because we always need a bit of outfit inspiration to brighten up the day. You will be surprised (as am I) about the lack of color or pattern for that matter. I ALWAYS have a summer go to striking and colorful maxi dress. Staple. Sadly, I am not having any luck finding one that is statement enough (drama queen). Challenge accepted. I am reigning in my need, addiction, hunger for color on color on color and going in a different direction. A little black, white, and blush should get the job done. Ok, maybe it is not so much of a departure for me, but it is not what I thought my Key West bag would look like.
On a trip with lots of people and a new destination your picks have to be agile. I am loving these pieces because they can easily be dressed up of down. They are not fussy, but they will be effortlessly chic and easy breezy at the same time. Win!

What is your go to staple for summer escapes?
