Resort Wear 101~ Don’t Travel this Summer without these Essentials

Do you ever wake up and just think“Yesss!” That’s how I felt this morning because it’s Friday and the weather in San Francisco this weekend will be unseasonably high in the 80’s. Roof top happy hour anyone? icon smile While I’ll be enjoying a little shopping and family time staycation in SF, I can’t help but crave a real tropical destination later this summer.

In the mean time, my Fauxchella St. Tropez tan has faded since last weekend and I wanted to share some must-have vacay survivor essentials whether you’re flying to an island across the world or simply heading to a hotel pool in your own city.

1. Loungeworthy Outfits are Key ~ I found these shorts recently at H&M and was instantly drawn to the vibrant scarf print pattern. The sheer lightweight top is also from there.

2. Reading Material is Crucial ~ Whether it’s fashion mags or a novel, books are a life savor if you’re in a location with no Internet. (Storitelling by Tori Spelling actually saved my vacation a few years ago when I was stuck on a Carnival Cruise from hell)

Day Clutches to the Rescue ~ These over sized clutches are a big trend this year and a perfect vacay essential. They can carry everything from a magazine, sunscreen, lipgloss, camera, hair ties, and even a pair of flip flops.

THE Day to Night Transition ~ If you’ve spent all day at the beach, pool or sightseeing, the last thing you want to do after a quick power nap is spend a long time prepping for dinner on vacation.
Here’s some of my new fave anti high-maintenance travel beauty tips:
1. ADD some bold neon earrings (these are cheap from F21 since I always lose jewelry on vacations)
2. ADD eyeliner on the outer corners of your eyes for a more dramatic evening look. Instantly makes your eyes pop without looking over the top (I recently discovered Urban Decay glide on pencil in Demolition~$19.00 here)
3. Metallic Flats ~ high heels are a hassle on vacations so add metallic sandals or wedges
4. Hair ~ Sideswept, braids or pull your hair in a high pony, tease it and then wrap it around in a bun keeping it in place with bobby pins which is what I did here.

Shorts & top (recent) ~ H&M, clutch~ Nine West (TJMaxx), bracelet ~ Boutique store in Palm Springs, ring~ Versace for H&M, nail polish~ Sinful Colors neon fusion

What are your summer travel essentials and if you have any suggestions for a tropical vacay destination, let me know. I’m thinking Miami!! icon smile
Have a great weekend,

    Amazing look. Love your accessories.

  13. Pip says:

    I love the prints of your shorts too! They look like Emilio Pucci and I love the blouse paired with them! Do you really use St. Tropez faux tan?! I used to use the lotion and have been contemplating trying to mousse. I have too hard a time keeping up with the tanning though anymore. I’m too lazy by the end of the day! Have a great weekend! xx


    • Dale Janeé says:

      Hi Pip, I did actually use St. Tropez lotion because I couldn’t find my have which is the FAKE BAKE airbrush tan. I like that kind a lot better actually, but the St. Tropez worked. :) And yes, tanning lotion applications does take A LOT of effort. hehe

  29. Daria says:

    H&M is my favorite shop too. They copy so many pieces from designers like D&G or Luis Vuitton and so on, but they cost just 20€ instead of 300€ or more. :) But H&M in USA is a little bit more expensive than in Germany.


  30. CherryRetroBerry says:
