Destination Style

   It's the middle of February and in my opinion there's no better time for a vacation.  By now, just about everyone I know has cabin fever and is jet setting off to some tropical island.  But remember when you take that vacation, your sense of style should not also take one.  Here are some of my picks for your next getaway to make sure you arrive in style.

1. Colored denim shorts or jeans.  I recently bought a pair of turquoise pyramid studded jeans from Michael Kors for $135.  However, you can find much cheaper alternatives at Express for just $69 and they are often on promotion for Buy 1, get the second pair 1/2 off.

2.  An asymmetrical hem dress for that night out on the town or romantic dinner.  I recommend wearing bright colors for a contrast against your glowing tan. You can get this one from BCBG for $198 or at www.piperlime.com for $145.  If you don't think these prices are within your budget, I promise the splurge is worth it.  This look will become a summer staple for you long after your vacation.

3. A great high heel sandal like the Brass Ankle-Wrap Snakeskin Platform worn by J. Lo at this year's Grammys.  While this shoe goes for a steep $1,390, there are less expensive versions like the Lena sandal from Marciano by Guess, which goes for $142. http://guessbymarciano.guess.com/en/Catalog/View/Shoes/Sandals/Lena%20Sandal/P31Z0001000?CMP=AFC-GANMAR_Polyvore#

4. Of course you'll need a tote to carry all your belongings to the beach in and the MK Jet Set Stripe tote for $328 is the perfect pick.

5.  Lastly a pair of aviator sunglasses and flat sandals are must haves for the day time.  I recommend the MK Peyton Aviators, which can be purchased at Bloomys or MK for $144 and the Michael Kors Jaina Studded Sandal, which retails for $225.
