The Travel Blog: Tanlines & Tequila
It’s easy to make the decision to go away to a tropical climate when it’s 20 degrees outside. What to pack? That’s another story entirely. Instead of staring into the dark abyss that is your closet or wandering around the mall for hours, try The Red Toad’s simple packing solution.
We love taking away a couple of items and being able to mix and match. This leads to our current obsession, Yamis and Dawni. This line consists of eight simple yet chic versatile separates that create over 50 unique possibilities. The fabric is a rich jersey that feels soft and luxurious to the touch. The designers, Tammy and Dawn, were meticulous in the design of each item to ensure that the garment drapes and wears perfectly. Their unique statement jewelry is also designed to go with anything that you may pack!
To add pizazz to your resort look, try rocking a tee with a cheeky saying or a cool graphic. Since pineapples are the epitome of tropical, we all went insane when we saw this adorable pineapple tank - perfect for the pool. Brokedown tees say exactly what is on our vacation minds, with sayings such as “save water, drink champagne” and “tanlines and tequila”. They totally get us.
To accessorize your look, we suggest bright and bold accessories. Tkees flip flops are the perfect shoe to bring to the pool or beach, and they fit perfectly in a carry on. Ruthy B is a new line of handbags by the woman who designed for one of our favorite labels, Bailey44. Ruthy B bags are the perfect bags to wear out or to the beach. They combine unique vintage fabrics and American denim, guaranteeing that no two bags are the same. It’s basically impossible to own just one.
This year, instead of just throwing random articles of clothing into a suitcase, come to The Red Toad and let our personal stylists pick all of your vacation looks for you. As always, we will take the time to style you from head to toe no matter where you're going, or what you plan on doing once you get there. Hey, you might even want to take us with you (we don't take up much room, we promise).
