Summer of Wanderlust – Caribbean Look Book

A lot people chose to spend their summer vacation in the Caribbean Islands and who can blame them! White sands beaches, crystal blue water and endless breezes make it the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself.

I’ve traveled to quite a few of the islands in Caribbean and next to the amazingly warm and inviting people my favorite part is all the color!! Especially when celebrating Carnival, the islands are awash in brilliant colors and bold details!  This look book is inspired by the color and patterns of the Caribbean and hopefully gives you some wardrobe inspiration if you are headed there this summer!

This look is perfect for day or night. Lightweight material in bright colors and an island palm print will have you ready for any occasion! I added playful accessories and tall wedges to show off those legs!

This look is a bit more dressed up, perfect for a dinner date but still super comfortable for dancing the night away! A jumpsuit this bold deserved an equally exotic jacket and I love how it pairs with this one! Topped with pops of yellow and palm print wedges you are sure to turn heads in this look!

I loved the color blocked painterly print of this set when I found it at the thrift store. These wide leg culottes are breezy for the humid Caribbean weather and I tied the shirt into a crop top to make it a bit more modern. Paired with some wild accessories you are ready for any island get together!

This last look has Caribbean Queen written all over it! A rainbow colored satin robe worn as a coat over a long body hugging dress makes for a dramatic look. I fell in love with this robe when I saw it and the abstract palm print is perfect for the islands. As a queen would, I paired this look with gold jewelry and heels.

I hope these looks give you some colorful inspiration for a summer soiree or for your days in the Caribbean, if you’re headed there!
