    It's never too early to start planning (or dreaming) of your summer getaway, so why not skip to the fun part and start shopping for your ideal vacation wardrobe? Without all the surf and sand, Kate Spade manages to illustrate a sunny 'oliday with clean lines and foolproof color combinations in this very minimal lookbook—letting the clothes and accessories speak for themselves. To help you narrow down your wish list a bit (someone has to!), we picked 10 of our favorite pieces, including the Hayley jacket in a refreshing yellow-white color block, and a bright blue bib necklace that we think Wes Anderson would use in his next flick.

Oh and don't forget to pack your retro bikini , too.
