Keeping It Classy |Vacation | Charlotte NC Photographer

I recently discovered the magical world of Polyvore and I am hooked! It is the perfect place to put together outfits for any occasion and get great ideas for your wardrobe. However, not everyone has time to cull through endless outfit choices on the internet, so I am going to bring trends and outfit inspirations straight to you every Friday in a Keeping It Classy post!  I love a good yoga pant and T-shirt as much as the next person, but sometimes when you dress up you feel better. Hopefully, I can help you harness some of that feel good energy with my thoughts and recommendations on the latest trends. What says "good energy" better then summer vacation? Probably not much, but sometimes packing for a fun getaway to the beach or somewhere warm can be difficult. It's also hard not to pack our skimpiest attire to compensate for the hot temperatures. This Friday we will be exploring fun outfit choices that are great for warm weathered vacations while also Keeping It Classy!

Out and About


Before you can hit the beach or the pool you might need to go grab some coffee or if you're lucky do some shopping ;) Nothing says vacation like a fun and breezy, printed, palazzo pant and a light, crisp, white top. Even though its the day, feel free to spice up the look with a cute wedge and bold jewelry.

Pool Side


It's time to hit the water! Vacation is all about laying by the pool or on a white sand beach,  so you have to pack the perfect bikini! Try looking for for ruffly tops or flouncy tops (as pictured above) to add some fun femininity to your beach wear. You don't need the smallest string bikini to feel flirty and cute. Also, it's always a good idea to pack a light weight dress or cute coverup if you want to stop somewhere for a snack on your way back from the beach. You don't want to be caught in just your bathing suit when your stomach starts to grumble.

Not Your Dad's Hawaiian Print


After a long day in the sun its time to go out with friends. But how do you incorporate the bright tropical prints that remind you your on vacation into a night time look? Let them be your small pop of color! Tropical flowers and leaves don't have to make you look like a tourist. By toning it down with a lot of other neutrals, like black, you can create the perfect look for a night out on vacation.
