Take Me to the Tropics



Printed top & wide leg pants: c/o HERE (size up + save with code "XOJOI")| Handbag: Kate Spade, older| Statement necklace: From my trip to Kenya
When I was little, I often went on road trip with my family during the summer. A constant question that I can remember asking while enroute was: Are we there yet? Fast forward decades later, I am constantly thinking: Is it time to go on vacation again yet?! LOL! Clearly not much has changed with me 😎
When I spotted this two piece set HERE I knew that it would be perfection for an upcoming island vacation. It has a wonderful print, is lightweight, and totally tropical. 
I think I will have the top altered a wee bit (it's supposed to be a crop) along with having the length of the pants shortened. That way I can wear them with lower heels/flats whilst island hopping 😉 But then again, I do love the billowy length- but I also don’t want to be forced to wear 4 ½ + inch heels all the time…hmmm. I guess altering the pants requires more thought...
Whichever way it goes, one thing is for sure: This 2 piece set will be on the plane with me in just a few short months!!!

Until next time,
XO
P.S. Is it time to go on vacation again yet?!

  1. You look great! What size did you order? Are they true to size or do they run small? Thanks and I LOVE your blog!

    1. Thank you Zara!!! I am wearing a 3X, as FNC offers junior sizing. The pants fit perfectly, but the top is 2 sizes too large. This is sold as a set. Generally speaking, they tend to run on the small side- but if it is an item with a good amount of stretch it may be closer to 'true to size'. HTH!

  3. I never know how to alter pants with the whole heel height dilemma! Sometimes a girl wants heels, sometimes she wants flats. This outfit is definitely making me crave a vacay! Love the bold pattern and fun colors.
