I am escaping to Hawaii with my boyfriend for the holiday, but am perplexed about what to pack...resort wear bemuses me! What would you bring? I want to look stylish and easygoing at the same time. Thank you!

A girl after my own heart, I love nothing more than to end the year with a much-deserved warm weather getaway! Let’s discuss some beach-appropriate essentials for you to pack…
In general, when shopping for resort vacation wear, I suggest setting your sights on vibrant and airy apparel that can be worn year after year. Something like All Saints’ Night Florals Karin Maxi Dress is a perfect starting point—it is floral, silky and day-to-night appropriate.
The next step is to pick out a few travel-inspired accessories to enrich your look. Do not be afraid to go over-the-top…you’re vacationing! Some of my current favorite jet set add-ons are Banana Republic’s Ariel Statement Necklace, Diane von Furstenberg’s Opal Wedges, MayaBags’ Plaid Bag—so ideal for the plane!—and Eugenia Kim’s Honey Straw Hat. Thoughts?
Saving the best for last, you can’t go to Hawaii (or any other beachy destination) without a swimsuit! JETS by Jessika Allen’s Haven Floral-Print Bikini is a dream, but if you are more comfortable in a one-piece, try Mara Hoffman’s equally stylish Halter One-Piece. Aloha! xoRZ
