While everyone else’s feeds were throwing up fall this weekend, I took the opposite approach and drove to Palm Springs in search of a pool. I’m sure you have heard about the outrageous temps in Los Angeles this week. I finally just submitted to the heat and accepted that fall isn’t coming early this year. With that said, I know many of you are planning tropical getaways this holiday season so hopefully this post can inspire your packing list for any upcoming travel.
Picking out cute swimsuits is my favorite part about planning a vacation. It’s fun to try out bright colors or fun prints that you aren’t typically wearing during the fall and winter seasons.
Solid + Striped x STAUD
I absolutely love this Romy orange bikini, it is so cute! I love trying out swimsuits with different fabrics, cuts, and colors and I especially like the white rings that are on the top and bottoms.

2. Tote Bags
When heading off to a vacation getaway, I find that the best bags to bring with you are tote bags. Not only can you easily take them with you on an airplane, you can also use them to carry your pool or beach essentials once you have arrived at your destination.
Solid + Striped x STAUD
Cotton & Canvas Tote
When two of your favorite brands collaborate to make amazing pieces such as this, there is no piece I don't like. Solid & Striped x Staud is such an amazing duo. This tote is great for traveling but also fitting for a day by the pool.

3. Light wash denim shorts
Light washed ripped or distressed denim just feels like summer. I don’t usually wear distressed light washed denim on cold and rainy days, they definitely feel like more of a sunny day outfit to me.
The Proper Distressed High-rise Denim Shorts
Mother denim is truly one of my favorite denim brands. I know these shorts tend to be on the pricier side, but if you live in a place that gets nice weather often I think it's justifiable.

4. Statement Sunnies
Statement sunglasses are really a year round thing, but if you are headed off to a warm place it’s always fun to switch things up with a bright colorful pair for your trip.
Tilda Swinton Eye Eye D-Frame Acetate Sunglasses
Last spring I wore my red sunglasses nonstop. I think red is such a fun color. I like to throw a bright pair of sunglasses on when I'm wearing an outfit that needs that little something extra.

5. Warm Weather Essentials
If you are road tripping to your warm weather getaway, don’t forget to pack sunscreen, beach towels and a sun hat!
If Violet Grey recommends it, I'm in! I am dying to try this ocean mist spray, it's the perfect hair product to achieve that natural beach waved hair on vacation without actually having to be at the beach all day.
