Ask Rachel: Time To Get Away

by The Zoe Report


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?

Of course, you can’t forget to bring beauty essentials too! Think out of the box with Chanel’s exotic blue Riva polish, Model Co’s Tan Extender and Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray.

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
