Without fail, I’m always dreaming of a tropical getaway come January. Maybe it’s because we’re living through winter so I crave the opposite. Maybe it’s because, even though winter is at its height, it always feels like the fresh possibilities of spring are looming in the future. Or maybe it’s because all the beautiful resort wear styles are on display. Either way, I get so excited to wear floral spring dresses, open-toe sandals, and straw tote bags that I end up starting to buy these items as early as now, in January.
So, today, I’m sharing my current resort wear favorites for a sunny season ahead. If you know you have a warm or tropical trip planned this spring, then I suggest scooping up pieces you fall in love with now so your suitcase will be packed before you even know it! My mom, Sarah, and I always do a mother daughter spring trip… we’re starting to plan our trip for this year now (excited!). Last year, we did Harbour Island and the year before we did Miami. It’s one of my favorite trips of the year so this Resort Ready: My Top Spring Vacation Picks post was really fun to write!
Stay tuned for a week’s worth of Resort Ready picks to come! I hope you enjoy!
Round Purse (also have and love the original style for less) / Tie Top / Drop Earrings (also comes in blue) / Dress / One Piece Swimsuit (I have and love!) / Black and White Purse (also love it in pink a white) / Palm Earrings / Wedges (also come in black) / Sunhat (also love this classic) / Slides (also love these) / Straw Purse / Lace Dress / Bikini Top (more colors here and here) / Bikini Bottom (more colors here and here) / Sunglasses (also love these)
Get the Resort Ready: My Top Spring Vacation Picks look:
There are so many beautiful resort wear pieces out right now that I can hardly contain my excitement for spring. I got this one piece bathing suit for Christmas and I love it (can’t wait to wear it on our honeymoon!) but I also have this bikini (top, bottom) from a few years ago and it’s still one of my most worn suits (it comes in more colors here and here).
This white lace dress is so dreamy but I also found four similar styles for much less: one, two, three, four. I also love this white lace top (such a style steal!). I have these wedges in blue (last seen here) but I love them in white too (also come in black). You cannot beat the price of this top or these sandals!
My siblings, Edwin, and I got my mom this purse for Christmas and I love it so much that I want it for myself (or would I want it in pink and white!?). This round purse is also so so fun but it’s hard to beat the original style too (and the price!).

I am definitely getting a pair of espadrilles and a rattan bag this year. Love spring!

This is the perfect roundup of resort wear and your pictures are adorable! Every piece instantly brings me to a warm place…I want to buy it all and get whisked away on a warm weather getaway.
Awww thanks so much Rachel!! I felt the same way when I was creating the guide! Get to to a warm tropical destination, haha! XO
Love all of this! Great selections. Question for you! The straw clutch in the second last photo – where is it from!
Thanks so much Vanessa! Yes, it’s from Shopbop about 4 years ago. It’s the Bop Basics line! They might have something similar available now! Thanks for reading! XO
I am swooning over the gingham maxi dress and those wedges have been on my “wish list” for years!! So cute! xo
