How To Pretend Like You're On Holiday (Even When You're Not)

caitlin rance

The last bits of the fresh Summer air are quickly saying their goodbyes as they depart into the night sky. I would be lying if I said I was happy because it's quite bittersweet. Summer is probably my favorite season, and though theres not a second I'm not sweating, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world (not even for Leonardo DiCaprio!) 

I mean theres just this amazing feeling when Summer roles around. I instantly become nostalgic for the days when I was younger. Time ceases to exist, and my diet only consists of fresh fruit and popsicles. What's not to love? 

You basically exist in nothing but the thinnest and shortest fabrics. The colors of these fabrics vary but will mostly only come in light creams and blues, and the occasional bathing suit is worn underneath. It's just uniform. 

Basically Summer is just like one long holiday even if you're not technically on holiday. It's hot and you're finally not wearing that puffer jacket anymore. Your legs can be free and your arms can taste that sweet sweet sun warmth.

So because I'm actually so obsessed with the idea of Summer & Holidays, I've decided If I can't technically have Summer forever, I'll just dress like I'm on holiday forever. Simple. 

*Disclaimer* While dressing like you're on holiday just doesn't quite work out for ~everyone~ around, it's actually quite simple to incorporate pieces into your daily looks that will transport you to the French coast in no time at all mon cherie! 

Check out some of my inspiration photos and shop below items I'm incorporating into my style.

WOVEN BAG ALERT! I'm telling you, it's truly a MUST. Plus the jumpsuit has made another appearance. You can dress these down or up and It's really just an amazing piece.

Heres a perfect example of the *tailored* holiday look in my book. If you're not completely able to thrown on a bathing suit, grab your woven bag, and lay on a yacht somewhere in St.Barths, try out this look instead French inspired look instead. Denim jumpsuit, scarf, platforms, AND YOUR WOVEN BAG.

Ugh this jumpsuit is just amazing. Stripes are definitely a big one here folk and I just think this piece looks so effortless yet put together and feminine.

The bag, the shoes, the jeans, the top. All YES. I don't think the Levi esc jeans will ever go out of style, and a look like this is the perfect amount of comfort and elegance for our modern day time. It almost reminds me of a women from the 50's. Like this is definitely a 50's look with a modern day twist.

Flowy jumpsuits like this are so amazing. If you're currently residing in somewhere that is still fairly warm, this is the perfect piece because it provides coverage but not too much to the point where you're sweating.

The woven basket is definitely a must if you're going for this look. Woven baskets just scream "I'm on vacation in Italy text you later"

The woven bag is spotted here, but along that are the amazing brightly colored patterned pants. They resemble culottes which is another piece thats in right now. So yes push your skinny jeans to the side ladies and gentlemen.

Of course some chest action for you. I'm still really into this look, but I'm interested to see it with a turtle neck underneath?

I will never get over the Realisation Par look. These light and airy threads make the holiday look perfect.

Really really into the dress over the white tee look. With a colorful dress like this, you can still emulate that holiday style while still look somewhat put together and ready to hit the office, grab drinks with a friend, or go shopping.

Another Realisation Par esc look. The simplicity with a hint of that red printed skirt is just amazing.

This look really brought back jean skirts for me in my mind. I think the white team and some denim can never fail and with that touch of brown in the bag, and the film camera, it's like your transported to the coast somewhere. Grab a peach and dig in.
