Resort Ready

You guys!! Your response over yesterday’s sneak peeks has me SO EXCITED!!! I know I’m over the moon with these pieces, but to hear you’re feeling it too, just makes me that much more excited to share it all with you. ONE MORE WEEK!!

And don’t worry, Monday’s post will spell out everything you need to know about Tuesday’s launch of the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Resort Collection at Nordstrom. For all the scoop on sizing (petite & plus!!), pricing, shipping, and more, check out this post.

The goal of this Resort Collection, besides creating clothes that look and feel amazing, plus bring you joy and confidence, was to design a packable capsule wardrobe perfect for all your warm-weather getaways. We’ve taken the chore out of packing, and done it all for you! All you need to add are a few accessories and a swimsuit, and you’re ready to get away.

Today I’ve rounded up some favorites in every category, all of which perfectly coordinates with our new Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Resort Collection! In fact, I used pretty much all of it in the photoshoot.

TOTES: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
MAKEUP & SUNNIES: 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
JEWELS: 9 | 10 | 11 | 12
HATS: 13 | 14 | 15 | 16
SANDALS: 17 | 18 | 19 | 20
SWIM: 21 | 22 | 23 | 24



one // Black & White Bucket Bag  The cutest black and white bucket-style bag that goes with every color and pattern in the Collection. Carry it by the short handles or as a crossbody.

two // Straw Clutch  Taking your dress or romper out for night? Grab this fun straw clutch, available in natural or pink.

three // Bamboo Bag  It’s ridiculous how good this bag looks with every Summer piece! It adds so much style to any outfit.

four // Tassel Straw Bag  Colorful tassels. Need I say more?! For a larger tote, perfect for the pool or beach, I adore this affordable option.


five // Eye Pallette We used ‘Pinks & Palms’ for a fresh, bright look for the big photoshoot.

six // Pink Lips  You know I had a bright lip, the pinker the better! Claudia is one of our faves!

seven // Round Oversized Glasses  I pretty much rotated between these two styles for every shot…you’d never guess they’re only $10!

eight // Square Oversized Glasses  Chloe dupes for $10?! Yep!


nine // Ring  I wore this ring on my middle finger for all the shots, and have rarely taken it off since!

ten // Tassel Earrings  The perfect shades of pink that perfectly coordinate the Collection…and on sale!

eleven // Disc Earrings  My go-to statement earrings for dressing up any outfit. So chic with the rompers and maxi dress, too!

twelve // Cuff  The only jewelry I wore besides earrings…this lightweight cuff goes with everything.


thirteen // Tassel Hat  I love the wide brim and pop of color.

fourteen // Fringe Hat  Super lightweight and oversized, this hat is a steal.

fifteen // Boat Hat  I love the structure and wide brim of this hat, and take it on virtually every beach trip.

sixteen // Fedora  It’s hard to go wrong with a classic straw fedora, and the perfect addition to vacation hair!


seventeen // Tan Wedges  A reader-favorite buy from 2018, I wore these wedges on repeat all season…and with most of the Collection!

eighteen // Floral Stripe Flip-Flop  The cutest flip-flops for around the pool.

nineteen // Flat Sandal  A chic alternative to the popular Miller sandal, these are comfy and so cute with dresses, skirts, and shorts.

twenty // Miller Sandal  How could I shoot a Resort Collection without my favorite sandal? These literally make an outfit! ‘Makeup’ is the best nude, and I size up half. I’m also completely smitten with this new style.


twenty one // Plunging One-Piece  The one-piece that converted me to one-pieces! Incredibly flattering, and darling with shorts or a skirt.

twenty two // Ruffle Trim Swim top  I have this ruffle-trim swim suit in several colors…cute and full support!

twenty three // French Tie Swim top  An updated version to the traditional triangle top, this one adjusts to fit and has the cutest criss-cross back.

twenty four// Scoopback Tank Suit  Perfect combo of active and sassy, this tank suit comes in a slew of colors. I paired it with shorts and pants in the Collection.


As for under garments, many of the pieces are perfect for a traditional bra (this one is my fave), but for the strapless and racerback styles, I wear this ultra light option. And of course it all packs up perfectly in my beloved eBags and fits in this carry-on bag.

Do you have any vacations planned? Which items would you gladly take with you?! The countdown is officially on, lovebugs!! One more week!

    Alas, my next trip is to the Amazon river; I’ll be packing DEET impregnated clothes and mosquito repellant, not cute shoes and straw totes. But I will keep these in mind for my trip after that to Portugal in May. Finally I’ll be able to pack chic resort wear. I’ve got my eye on one of those off the shoulder pieces with rick-rack. Dying to know if it’s a top or dress…

    And of course you’ve got tassels on your ears and handbag. It wouldn’t be Cassie without a little color and fringe!
