We're sorely missing those days when we could walk outside in nothing but a pair of shorts and flip-flops. Bare legs and exposed toes — can you imagine? At this point, we're kind of forgetting what warm weather feels like. But, just because winter is dragging its feet doesn't mean we can't daydream about our vacation wardrobe. In fact, we highly recommend getting a jump on packing before it's too late. Plus, it's the perfect excuse to shop your favorite summery styles even though it's not quite warm enough to wear them yet.
And, Kenzo's playful, pattern-mix resort wear feels completely right for the occasion. With tons of color and quirk, this getup is totally putting us in the cowabunga spirit. A lightweight, cropped jacket in pastel pink; a gingham skort; and a floral, midriff-baring top are the makings of this tropical ensemble. Accented with statement sunnies and a chunky loafer — feel free to swap with sandals — this look has us making all kinds of mental notes for our travel style so we're not frantically filling our suitcase at the last minute.
