Maxi Dress for Vacation

Dress: Yumi Kim | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: J.McLaughlin (old, similar) | Earrings: ℅ Baublebar 

Let’s talk about travels, shall we?

I love traveling, but I’m not that great about visiting tropical destinations. I went to Punta Cana last year with family, but I often opt to explore a new city rather than relax on the beach. Given how stressed out I am on a regular basis, this seems to be a huge mistake. I need to start planning trips where all I do is lay out on the beach. Or pool. Or both. 

Anyway, this dress is a fabulous option for a tropical vacation, or spring/summer happy hours. I’m pretty hooked on all things Yumi Kim; the quality of her pieces are absolutely incredible, and I find the designs to be timeless and chic. 

P.S. — where should I book my next (tropical) vacations? Thinking of Mexico, but if you can point your girl in the right direction, that’d be fabulous.
