Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Kate Middleton's royal visit to India and Bhutan got me thinking about how a good print can really elevate your vacation style.

9 AM :: French Connection Maxi Shirt Dress in Lala Palm 
This midi length palm print dress is in a lightweight rayon... perfect for zipping around the world in your private jet (or getting through economy). The shades of navy are more flattering than plain black and the drawstring waist will mask any sign of a baby bump or that inevitable bloat belly you seem to get after a plane meal. Layer with a tank for warmth and pair with Stan Smiths for comfort.

Bright and short... the perfect combo for lounging by the pool with a glass of bubbly in hand. This beauty is baby soft and has a popper placket meaning you can slip it off with ease to show off that crochet bikini. A bottle of SPF 30+ and the latest gossip rags will round out the look.
