I don’t know about you guys, but I am just about ready to lose my mind if I don’t get a vacation from this horrible heated dome called Texas. Alas, our annual family trip to Provincetown isn’t until the end of August! How was I to know that it would feel like August all summer long? So, instead I decided to dress like I am on an island somewhere, sipping from a straw that’s sticking out of a hole punched in a coconut. How can you dress to drink from a coconut too?
- Wear something with an over-sized print. This top is ridiculously graphic when it comes to pink flowers. Choose the biggest, boldest print you can find. Think muumuus, think neon.
- Try also exaggerated sizes. Longer belled sleeves, deep v-necks, wide flared pants. As long as the fabric is light, even sheer, you can get away with something drapey, almost tent-like. I mean, it’s a vacation, isn’t it?
- Wear a strappy wedge or heel. Elevate your muumuu with some sexy footwear! Try a bright color or a metallic to really amp up the volume.
And if you’re actually going on a vacation, you should definitely check out my latest newsletter. I’m promoting my Suitcase Prep Service with a little discount, and some extra-useful tips for packing for your trip. Sign up for my newsletter here, or over there on the top right!
