Vacation Outfit Ideas & OKA b. Giveaway
Vacation. The very idea makes my body tingle with excitement. The idea of a time I've set aside to create memories with the people that I love - away from the pressure and worries of the "real" world - there is no better feeling, in my opinion. I pretty much ride my "I'm going on vacation" high until about a week beforehand - then I panic. What in the WORLD do I wear?!
I'm terrible at packing for vacation as it is so I require packing charts, lists, and full-on outfit planning. To help you out a bit with your vacation packing, I've pulled together 3 different looks for you below - one to suit any vacation you might find yourself on!

Glamping is my own version of camping. I love the outdoors, I'm overcome by the beauty of nature, but I also like to be able to relax in the air conditioning and sip a glass of wine when I'm done. So, glamour camping - or "glamping" is the only way that this (slightly diva-like) girl "does" camping.
What to pack: A comfy tank top, a pair of plaid shorts (my tribute to the woodsy types, but with style), a crossbody bag to hold your flask canteen, and a comfy pair of shoes. Remember, we're glamping - so hiking boots are not required.
Cruises are just wonderful, wonderful things. Once I get past the rolling back and forth in my sleep, I really love the wind in my hair, the spa treatments, the glamorous dinners and cocktail parties, and the sleepy days spent in a deck chair with a really good book. It doesn't hurt that my cell phone doesn't work at sea. "Sorry mom, you're breaking up - can I call you back in a few days?!"
What to pack: A white sundress (it will look so good against your newly sunkissed skin), some rockin' accessories, and a pair of shoes that you can use to dress up or down. Bonus points if you pack a floppy hat.
As much as I love to relax, I love to pound the pavement in major cities, exploring the ins and outs, and of course - SHOPPING. Everyone knows that you get better service in a boutique if you already look chic (we've all seen Pretty Woman!) - but go for chic in a way that you wouldn't normally. Like below - Parisian chic à la Erika.
What to pack: A striped boatneck tee (this one was 11 bucks at Forever 21), a pair of cropped length skinny jeans, a skinny belt, a scarf, a killer bag, and some comfy shoes.
