When I talk about vacation bags, yes I’m talking about beach bags but also the smaller versions of that work perfectly with all your resort looks. They don’t necessarily have to be large totes, they can be smaller as long as they fit your sunblock, sunglasses and a good book. Great vacation bags are lightweight and a bit more whimsical than your typical city bags. These bags tend to be canvas, crochet, even rubber – often water resistant and always fabulous. They’re the perfect addition to your maxi dress, your romper or your swim cover up. These vacation bags inspire you to relax, put your feet up and enjoy the summer time. Check out some of my favorite resort accessories to tote your stuff around all while looking fabulous!

I remember being 20 and thinking pumps were the end of youth – that these pointy toed footwear meant the beginning of adulthood and corporate life. I held on to my clunky platform boots and my 90′s baby tee that proclaimed “Fashion sucks” when I first started at Conde Nast in the late 90′s only to come face to face with a pair of Gucci pumps (from one of Tom Ford’s first collections for the luxury brand) and, of course I fell head over heels (literally) in love. The perfect pair of pumps is trendless, timeless, effortless and fabulous. There are few accessories that can work so well with so much of your wardrobe – from pencil skirts to boyfriend jeans than these seasonless heels.
