    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. Who says you can't look prim and proper even on vacay? If you're dying to wear something printed, save the Hawaiian sarongs and Havaianas for the locals (you say comfort, we spy tourist), and try the Explorer silk pants with sea foam leather pumps or an eye-catching scarf or bracelet. No matter where you go when the weather gets warm (or even now, if you're lucky), looking chic should never be something you'd take a vacation from, amirite? Oh and don't forget to pack your retro bikini , too.
