As much as I’d love to spend every summer jetting off to St-Tropez or some other fab destination for a week, some years, it’s not in the cards. But even when a summer is spent closer to home, it’s still nice to find ways to channel the breezy, relaxed vibe that comes with a great vacation. Earlier this year, we shared a few tips on how to take a staycation… and I think that the way you dress plays a key role in capturing the getaway vibe, too! Keep reading for a few thoughts on how I’m bringing a little St-Tropez style home with me, as well as a chance to enter to win $500 to spend on your own vacation wardrobe from ASOS!
On Monday, I shared a couple of my favorite looks from our trip — one from a day at the market, the other from a day at the beach. I wore this ensemble (above) for our first evening out: drinks and dinner at the gorgeous Hôtel Villa Belrose where we had our first breathtaking view of the Mediterranean overlooking the cliffs. I wore this white ASOS shift dress with zippers on the sides, and it felt like the perfect mix of classic without being stuffy. When traveling to a beach town, no matter how sophisticated, I never get that dressed up at night. I save the stilettos and sparkles for “city” trips, and instead opt for natural materials, wedges or flat sandals, and looser silhouettes that skim (not hug) the body. Delicate gold jewelry (I wore these bracelets) and a small crossbody bag are finishing touches that feel effortless and cool. Now, for the giveaway!

We’ve partnered with ASOS to give one lucky reader $500 to spend on their dream vacation wardrobe…

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Create a Pinterest board that reflects your dream beach packing list. Include at least 3 items from ASOS on your board — the rest can be anything from anywhere that you’d want in your fantasy suitcase! A sampling of my dream packing list is above, to get your creative juices flowing!
  2. When your board is complete, leave a comment on this post with a link to your Pinterest board so we can check it out. We’ll choose our favorite (based on creativity and style), and the winner will receive $500 to spend however they like on!
  3. Deadline is Friday, June 27th at 12pm CST. Good luck, and have fun pinning!

    unpofucsia June 20, 2014 at 8:37 am

    oh that dress looks like something that needs to be very carefully packed maybe even ironed when unpacked and then you need to sit very carefully in it …definitely NOT something I would take on my summer vacation … some embroidered or lace maxi would be much more practical yet equally versatile . I like that beach play-suite though! I like your veggies as well.

    • unpofucsia June 20, 2014 at 10:13 am

      hahaha and of course I meant wedges not veggies (blame it on spellcheck ) :)))))

    I couldn’t be more excited to have read this post. I stumbled across your blog and read your vacation post and fell in love with your wardrobe and style. I immediately knew this was the style I wanted to recreate for myself. Since having my daughter 4 1/2 years ago I have struggled with what style would suit my new life. I knew I wanted classy, but still age appropriate. Before now I never found that perfect balance. My husband, daughter and I are hoping to take a beach vacation in the upcoming months and I knew this was the my style. I recently consigned mostly all my clothes in hopes to purchase new ones Asos. Immediately (before the giveaway post) I started pinning outfits so I could remember exactly what I want and style I am looking for and of course every item is from Asos. So to my surprise I was dreaming again of inspiration came across your new post for the giveaway and got so excited. I truly hope I win this. I would die to get all my pins from Asos. Thanks so much!

    Jeanette June 22, 2014 at 12:39 pm

    Always love your posts. Thanks for a chance to win a spree with ASOS.

    My dream vacation is in Kauai, Hawaii…sun, sand, beachfront resorts with brunch, cocktails and glorious views, romantic dinners and strolls with my husband, and my vacation look epitomizing the boho beachy look…from sun-kissed make-up to flower prints everywhere and the perfect patterned suits. I found so many perfect looks right from ASOS and added some other favorites for my ultimate dream packing list. Here’s how it turned out:

    Hoping the dream comes true.
