I’m off to the islands for a week right after Thanksgiving and I need some of the latest resort fashions to fully enjoy my time there. I love to laze on the beach during the day in a cute bikini or the current monokini and to stroll over to the beach bar for a yummy pina colada in my gorgeous cover up. And you know I love to dance, so I’ve got to have a few cotton print dresses that I can swing through the night in. Oh this is going to be such a super time and I’m ready!
Is there anything more exciting than a Caribbean vacation? I love a place we know that has true honeymoon privacy with your own cottage, pool and immediate beach access. You can be totally casual or dressy – alone or with a crowd. I like a bit of both. Right now there are some great deals on resort vacation packages. You just have to know where to look. I use our circle of friends to gather the latest guff on Anguilla, Barbados, Little Dix, Nevis, St. Barts, the Turks and Caicos. At this time of year, you’ll have to really know your stuff because the winter rates are at their highest but there are good deals on Spring and Summer rate packages.
You know you shouldn’t forget Florida. After all it is a tropical venue but we don’t think of it that way. Yes, it takes a little research to find the right nook and to avoid the Florida grizzlies but it can be worth it and if like me, you hate to fly that may be your answer.
Anyway, back to the clothes I need. I think I’ll start with the beach and swimwear. And I’ll try my favorite first look place – shopbop. They have great cover of all the designers, both old and new and you can find a lot of possibilities quickly and go from there. If you have to try stuff on then you can go to one of the big box stores and try everything on to your heart’s content.
