softgrey - cool re the pin.....so funny re the jacket - we must swap notes as to how we both wear it....LOL. I have tended to wear it with quite boyish clothesso as to offset the frills and ruffles.....baggy pants and ballet flats.

I like the PrSch dress, yes, in fact very bizarrely its very like the topshop one I referred to above^^^ uncanny infact! I wonder if the dress might look good with a more structured jacket like a blazer (but maybe thats too restrictive in the heat). I think the dress looks cool and beachy though and thats kind of the main thing in a hot place. Is Target not quite cheap....if so it doesn't really matter if you don't wear it that many times....?

You are lucky that you have nice colouring that works in a hot place - I end up looking like a big milk bottle.

^^..thanks!
big milk bottle?!?!?...

i actually have yet to wear the jkt...
i keep planning to and change my mind at the last minute...


thanks everyone!
this is helping me no end!!
i was really bewildered...

*laika...the jacket is good because it is cropped and boxy...
and it goes with everything i am bringing..:p
it also dresses up some of my more casual items...
i'm also bringing a white terry zip hoodie to throw on for day if it gets cool...
and black terry short shorts for the beach...

helena...that is my feeling about a blazer...i'd prefer something looser and less restrictive as you mentioned...but i could try that once i am back in the city i guess..
and yep- target is super cheap..the dress is $35...so i figure it is just perfect even if i don't wear it much!!...


i would love a short tunic to wear as a cover up/dress also...
but i cannot find a cute one that i like...
i thought i found something but i tried it on again and it's the potato sack syndrome all over again......

trying to put together an outfit with cropped pants as an alternative if it's a bit cooler......

i'm bringing 3 swimsuits i think..
2 blk bikinis...
1 blue/wht prt (almost identical to the little shorts) with bamboo rings

footwear is an issue

The dresses from American Apparel are great, the ones that are just very long wifebeaters. I really like black layered over white.

Also the Taka print shorts, tops, babydolls are good.

for a tropical vacation, i would suggest bringing at least 5 separate pieces (easier to maximize) and one or two key dresses (for that special occasion) i like to keep my top fussy and interesting, and the shorts very simple, and tailored. i made an exception with the last pair with the leaf print becos the color was just irresistable. and the longer coverage means i could wear lower heels.
i think city shorts paired with floral "summery",floaty tops are great if u are undecided about losing the tailored look.

softgrey,

i loooove all the jcrew stuff, its perfect for resort and summer
those espadrilles and the white jacket are lovely too

-cuffed khaki shorts
-loose white vneck shirts
-really interesting, bright jewelry
-large buttondown shirts
-nice compact clutch
-big tote (even maybe pick up a straw one when your there)
-cute flats and flipflops
-one great pair of evening shoes
-simple gold aviators
-maybe a cool caftan


i thought i would make a little photo collage, just for some inspiration

dear- that is not a valid source...
you MUST provide the original sources for all images posted at tFS
see cavanugh's post for an example..

thanks


cavanaugh- that is a cute collage...
it's halfway what i am bringing....:p
but i cannot do khaki...my coloring is like mary's...
so that is why i was veering towards black

mary---you manage to make black look so summery....!!
those grey shorts are so awesome...

i have some grey linen shorts...perhaps it would be good to bring those...
...

i guess my struggle is with the more casual beachy looks...
i really love all these looks
http://pressroom.target.com/pr/news/...m.aspx?id=4504
if only they were available now...
i am going to have to try to copy them somehow....

i have cropped grey isabel marant pants...and an ivory marni top that ties in the front...
that's one look......


* i was hoping for something more from American Apparel...
all the dresses are boring or ugly...
will have to check further for a possible tunic/cover up...

softgrey - the Isabel marant pants and marni top would be lovely.....you need to watch you don't take too much - thats what I always do and I end up not wearing half of it. what about a couple of babydoll tops to wear with your shorts.

footwear - one pair of heels to wer with your dress and say two pairs of flat sandals.....your white prada sandals and maybe a pair like these

http://www.apc.fr/eu/en/fiche_articl...f=4GAD0017100F

and some cool jewellery....chunky bangles (will look very Jackie O).
