This past weekend was an exciting Staycation for me. It was my husband’s birthday which I talked about in my last post. Styling an outfit for that was a ton of fun! I also had the pleasure of styling an outfit for the Vacay Style brand collaboration that I was a part of!
The weekend felt like a staycation for me and my husband. Between dinner at Gibson’s on Friday, the Coldplay concert on Saturday and a leisurely stroll on the Chicago Riverwalk it was amazing! It got me in the perfect mood to shoot for Vacay Style. The idea for Vacay came to Elizabeth when she was going on an 18 month nautical adventure on a tiny boat. Have you tried packing for a month? It’s hard isn’t it?! Well then imagine packing for 18! Necessity is really the mother of invention 🙂 She came up with a clothing line that was perfect for easy vacation packing – the fabric was wrinkle resistant and the pieces were easy to pair! A few pieces and plenty of looks!
When I looked at her collection I quickly picked this Maui Print Halter Top. The colors were vibrant, and I could quickly think of different ways that I could use this top 🙂 To start out, I pulled together this look that I wore on our stroll along the river. I had the look perfectly planned out in my head.
When I wore this top I was beyond happy with how beautiful it was. The material was soft, the fit was amazing and I loved the fact that it had a self bra. I mean how many times have you picked a lovely top only to realize now you need to figure out a bra or a stick on or a strapless that continuously feels like it’s falling down! Pairing this top with a cute pair of baby pink shorts from Forever 21 seemed liked the perfect plan. I love how the top really stood out against this baby pink!
Being the hot summer day it was I pulled out my hat from Nordstrom and a pair of cute flats from Coach with some floral detail. I also wore my mirrored sunnies from Ted Baker. I have accessorized keeping the water theme in mind and so am wearing a lovely gold starfish ring from Kate Spade and stacked bracelets from Loft.
The walk in this outfit was awesome, it was comfortable, the top was really airy and helped with not sweating as much! If I haven’t convinced you by now to stop by the Vacay site and pick out your own look maybe this will convince you –

I will have more looks coming with this top when I go on our vacations 🙂
But in the mean time here are some ideas, you can pair this top with a pair of white jeans for elevating this top to a more classy finish. This way you are restaurant ready on your vacation. You could also wear it over a pair of black or white shorts for a slightly more casual look like I have done. You could even pair it with a maxi skirt in black to make sure your top really stand out! All in all you have yourself plenty of looks with just one super top!
Happy Staycation Shopping!
