1) Statement sunglasses

This ultra chic pair by Kate Spade will go with everything in your closet and protect your peepers. And a bonus - you can get them at Nordstrom Rack for a fraction of full retail, giving you a few extra bucks for your margarita fund.

2) Wear everywhere dress

You need a dress that is comfortable, wrinkle resistant, stylish, and can just as well for happy hour as it does over a swimsuit. Our t-shirt dress fits the bill - and with a pocket, this functional dress will take you everywhere!

3) Sandals you can actually walk in

Yes, we all love our Birkenstocks - but sometimes you want to amp it up just a bit, but still want to be able to walk for miles. I recently got these thong sandals from Vionic  and love them -  They a soft insole with arch support and even after walking all day, your feet will be no worse for the ear.

4) Floppy hat

To finish off your look - protect yourself with this fabulous rancher hat from Anthropologie. This hat can be easily packed in your luggage without losing its shape, and you can easily transition into fall.  The brass accent adds an elegant touch - I have the gray version, but it also comes in black and lilac.
