Six Outfits for Island Life

FashionLucy LopezComment

Although it was unseasonably warm when I left Buffalo, there's nothing like 82 degree weather everyday. Sometimes I think I could get used to this.  My inspiration for packing on this trip was definitely geared towards being both comfortable and put together. Whenever I come to Puerto Rico,  I try to focus on wearing really breathable thin fabrics and airy tops. I've learned the hard way that polyester and humidity are not friends! 

OUTFIT 1

THERE ARE DAYS WHERE I'M ALL ABOUT THE SHORT SHORTS! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE DRAPEY SHORTS AND HOW COMFORTABLE THEY ARE. IF I'M IN WARM WEATHER FOR SOME REASON I ALWAYS WANT TO BREAK OUT THE TURQUOISE JEWELRY. THIS LONG NECKLACE GIVES ME THAT LITTLE POP OF CONTRASTING COLOR AGAINST THE RED OF THE SHORTS. YOU'LL BE SEEING THESE CAGED HEELED SANDALS A LOT. THEY ARE A STAPLE FOR ME! PROBABLY THE BEST $40 I EVER SPENT AT TARGET.

OUTFIT 2

Kimonos are such an easy way to add some interest to an outfit. Probably one of my favorite trends and feeds into my obsession with all things flowy. I like hiding how short my shorts are with a breezy outer layer. It makes me feel a little less exposed and a little more calm and cool.

OUTFIT 3

DRESSES AND ROMPERS, AND MORE DRESSES AND ROMPERS. I LOVE JUST THROWING ON ONE PIECE AND CALLING IT A DAY. I'M NOT ALWAYS IN THE MOOD TO STYLE A WHOLE OUTFIT! THAT BEING SAID THIS MAROON TUNIC CAN BE DRESSED UP OR DOWN JUST WITH A CHANGE OF HEELS, MAKEUP LOOK, AND ACCESSORIES. BECAUSE I'M SO TALL, TUNIC DRESSES CAN BE HIT OR MISS LENGTH WISE, SO I'M ACTUALLY WEARING SPANDEX WORKOUT SHORTS UNDERNEATH.

This romper is as bold as it gets for me but I'm obsessed. Originally $129 at Free People, I got it for $30! Best buy of 2015 for me. As far as flip flops go, these Havianas have gotten me through three warm seasons already! So comfy and I love the rose gold.

OUTFIT 5

I wasn't sure what I'd be doing this day so I recycled the same tank top from a different day. This time, I opted for workout shorts disguised with accessories and cute shoes!  It's a cool trick if you're expecting to have a long day. I always bring a long thin cardigan with me on vacation for cooler nights. 

There's really nothing better than being on my island in December. I'm so lucky and just hope the rest of my trip drags on! It's nice to be "home."
