Hey Cricket! I’m going on my first vacation in two years—so excited! I love to travel and I used to have really fun, colorful and sexy vacay clothes. But since I’ve been keeping it local the past couple of years everything I have is either out of style or doesn’t fit. Can you recommend some items that are vibrant and on-trend?

What to Pack for a Stylish Spring Break.

Let’s get the vibes popin’! Time to get on that plane, train, or automobile. I can picture it now–you’ve made it to the hotel and have the rest of the day to explore the city. You  reach into your travel bag full of Dia essentials and day or night, you’ll be ready to go with any one of these fabulous looks!

“No matter the activities planned for a vacation, you can always use a kimono!”

Reaching into your suitcase, why not grab the unique LuvMeMore sienna shorts? The color alone draws you in. When you pair the sassy spring shorts with the LuvMeMore off-the-shoulder crop top–vivacious (my favorite word) comes to mind. The trendy style of the top is a vacation classic for sightseeing. Don’t forget sandals and those go-to sunglasses!

No matter the activities planned for a vacation, you can always use a kimono. Going to the beach? Grab the fun and breezy Shiraleah Kimono as a cover up over your bold bathing suit! Catching brunch? Wear the kimono with white capris and a lightweight tee. Think tote bag for your traveling essentials and you are on a fashionista roll!

Finally, you have a night out in your vacation city. The world is your runway and you are the star. Ease into the satin slip on dress. A curve-loving favorite, I think the fun and flirty Standards & Practices piece will be stunning with wedges, block heel shoes, or booties. The comforting Molly & Isadora denim jacket or a moto jacket is perfect for those cool night breezes.

Have the best time, lovely!
