Rain, rain, go away — or we will. All these gray skies and endless downpours have us dreaming of a place that’s sunny and dry, and we’re downright craving a desert escape. But, before we head to Kayak.com, we need a few breezy dresses to escort us on our romps through the cacti and red rocks.

And, after scrolling through the styles — which include silky baby-doll dresses, tailored lace jackets, and boho-style frocks — we’re planning a trip to the Gold Coast store before we book a trip to sunny paradise. We'll see you at the pool.
