It's been cold and rainy out lately in San Francisco and it's making want warmer weather and some much needed vitamin d more than ever. While I enjoy being cuddled up with a hot cup of coffee I'm ready for some warm weather. There are endless amounts of adorable warm weather pieces that have been making their way out into the limelight, which obviously has not been helping my sunshine appetite and spring time dresses. Here is a look inspired by the warmer days ahead of us and a hit-list of key items you should consider packing on your next trip. 

Mara Hoffman

Anything from Mara Hoffman's resort wear collection will do. Her line encompasses everything from swimwear to colorful printed coverups pulling inspirations from nature, world travel and fantasy that are perfect for any beach vacation. Her colors exude tropical getaway vibes - Hawaii, Bahamas or Cuba, anyone? 

Tote Bag & Floppy Hat

Perfect for the beach days. Women of all ages need a fashion forward beachwear look in their closet. With a straw woven hat and large tote bag you've got the complete resort wear look. Not to mention these tote bags are durable enough to pack sunscreen, a towel, flip flips and handle itself on the sandy beach floor. 

Bold Lip & Sunnies

During vacation, with lots of sunscreen and sun time it can be difficult to apply your usual beauty routine. On the beach you can easily get a away with the no makeup look. Just add some shades and a bold lip matte and you are golden. I'd recommend Mac Lip Stain the stay on through water and oil spills.  

Face Masks

Keep calm and carry on this product. With the combination of travel and climate changes my skin goes a little haywire during vacation. Belle Azul Masks have become my sweet beauty savor while traveling. Each Shea butter-based mask is infused in all natural ingredients and is rich in moisturizing and softening your skin. It's an instant detox facial for sensitive skin, which I love. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and hydrated.

Shop this Post

My motto is if you love it - get it because it's likely others love it too and when you return to your cart it's out of stock. You know the feeling and it's not a good one. So jump on it ladies before the resort wear looks are all gone! If you enjoyed the read feel free to follow me and my adventures on social media below.
