Crochet Dress

This crocheted A.L.C. dress is perfect for a beach vacation! I love that the slip is shorter than the rest of the crocheted fabric so you get that sexy peek-a-boo look! But you’ll still feel covered up!

Flattering Swimsuit

A flattering swimsuit that YOU feel good in is a must-have when you go on vacation! This Tory Burch swimsuit has a gorgeous sweetheart neckline, adjustable and removable straps, and underwire cups to keep the girls in place! The color block design cheats the waist in and actually makes you look slimmer! Sexy AND flattering…win-win!

Eyelet Dress

This eyelet mini dress is so cute! You can wear it with or without the belt. And it has a removeable slip so you can wear the slip and dress to lunch or dinner…OR wear the dress over your swimsuit as a coverup! It pulls double duty…Functionality on a trip is key!

Comfy Studded Sandals

Do you remember the studded Steve Madden sandals from last year? They blew up on Instagram and everyone was wearing them! Now, they have an updated version that will be equally as popular! I have the version from last year and they’re SO comfortable! You can wear these from lunch to the beach and beyond!

Packable Hat

I hate when I pack a hat in my suitcase and it gets squished! That’s why you need a packable hat! This is a great option and only $45!

Trendy Heels

These heels by Raye are gorgeous! They’re the perfect, trendy but versatile heels to add to your spring/summer wardrobe! You can wear these dresses, skirts, jeans, and more!

Chloe Sunglasses

I love the shape of these oversized Chloe sunglasses. And obviously, sunglasses are a vacation necessity! These are a little pricey but you can find look-a-likes from Amazon or Nordstrom! Some more affordable sunglasses brands I love are Le Specs and QUAY!

Open Knit Sweater

Throw this sweater over a tank, cami, or your swimsuit! Pair it with denim shorts and sandals for an effortless resort-style look!

Bucket Bag

Bucket bags have been on-trend every summer for a while now! This Sensi Studio bag is the newest to my collection…The outside is straw with fun beaded details and the inside is cotton. It also has a drawstring top to ensure your stuff won’t fall out! This is the perfect accessory to add to any spring/summer look!

Striped Dress

If you’re looking for a stunning dress for vacation…this is it! It’s super flattering and sexy! The way the stripes lay across the body and the ruching makes it SO flattering. I also love the asymmetrical fringe hem that makes it feel even more beachy.

Denim Shorts

Denim shorts are another must-have! I know many women over 40 don’t think they can wear denim shorts…but you can! Agolde has super flattering and age-appropriate options!

Wedge Sandals

These Steve Madden espadrilles are the perfect mix of casual and dressy! I love the stud details! And they’re just under $100!
