Just Add Water

Spring has officially sprung, and I could not be more excited, or more ready for the new season! We’ve even started making plans for Summer, so peace out Winter… we’re moving on!

I know many of you have plans for warm-weather trips and getaways, so I’ve been on the hunt for cute resort styles. Y’all loved the special occasion dresses I found at Zappos last month (see those HERE), so I checked there for vacation styles, and hit the jackpot on classic swimwear and coverups!

We’ve known Zappos as the shoe Mecca for years, but they also have a huge selection of incredible fashion finds as well! With just about every brand and budget you can imagine, from Tory Burch and Trina Turk to Kendra Scott and Kate Spade.

The flowy shape of this cover-up dress caught my eye first, then the fit hooked me! It’s lightweight without being sheer, and has such an elegant feel about it. Plus, the blue is stunning!

It has an asymmetrical hem and flutter sleeves, with an elastic waist for a comfy fit. I’ll be throwing it over all my v-neck suits this season for an easy, chic pool or beach day style.

Fit Tip: It’s a one-size, and fits a range of sizes and body types.

I was surprised to find a huge selection of Kendra Scott at Zappos, too… many at lower prices! I love these filigree styles for their classic style, plus they’re so lightweight.

If you wanted to get super sassy on vacation… try the dress alone for a daring, but still classy style. If you prefer a higher neckline, there’s a similar option HERE.

Sugarplum Style Tip: My go-to nippies are perfect coverage for low, strapless, and backless styles.

When it comes to swimwear, it’s hard to beat a classic black suit… it’s just so classy and timeless. Plus, throw on just about any pant, skirt, or sarong for instant style around the pool or beach. And don’t underestimate the power of a big hat and sunglasses… they always add instant chic!

This v-neck suit has a flattering fit, and a ribbed texture for added smoothing. It has adjustable straps and a low back, and is really soft and comfortable.

Fit Tip: I always size up one in swimsuits, I’m wearing a 4.

I always lean towards nude sandals and flip-flips to help elongate the leg, and Tkees are a timeless, comfortable option.

If you prefer more coverage, this classic suit has a square neckline, full coverage across the back, and subtle ruching to smooth and conceal tummies.

No surprise this colorful sarong had me swooning… a large size for wearing around your waist, tied around your chest, or simply draped around your shoulders for vacation dinners.

    Love love love the pareo! Just noticed that your link takes us to Trina Turk Rio Pareo, but the one you have shared is the Louvre, I think. Just an FYI! Thanks for posting!

    You mentioned that you were going to try a set of Amazon luggage and see how it held up. Any reviews?

      Hi Julie! I actually never ended up ordering the set from Amazon… I was going to take it on our spring break trip, but we cancelled that. So I don’t have a review for you on that yet! xo, C
