I’ve Got the Dress For Spring Break…Now Where Should I Go?


Voloshin’s latest resort collection dropped recently and if you are a fan of blue…don’t look at it. Especially if your heart soars at a particular shade of bright turquoise blue, or if the Pantone Color Of The Year (Classic Blue) puts a skip in your step. In fact, maybe don’t keep reading this particular post because Voloshin’s latest washable silk creation (so very fancy and unfancy all at the same time) is verrrrry hard to resist.

Voloshin's resort collection — hey, washable silk maxi dress — inspires spring break vacay vibes. We're packing this beachy (mostly sustainable) mini-capsule wardrobe.

I obviously couldn’t resist.

Vacation Vibes: This Silk Maxi Dress + A Beachy Capsule Wardrobe

So now that I have this dress, and it clearly is a dress made for Being Fabulous On A Beach Somewhere…I think it’s only right that we plan a Spring Break getaway immediately. In fact, I put together a little capsule wardrobe for my imaginary Spring Break trip.

Voloshin's resort collection — hey, washable silk maxi dress — inspires spring break vacay vibes. We're packing this beachy (mostly sustainable) mini-capsule wardrobe.

1. & 2. Mara Hoffman Bikini Top and High Rise Bottom – **SUSTAINABLE** Mara Hoffman swim is pricey, but it’s also insanely well-made and will last forever. These bottoms are everything. (I always size up in the bottoms so they’re not overly tight on my softer stomach.)

3. FRAME Linen Tee – Linen tees always seem to last so much longer than cotton ones, and are more comfortable in hot weather. This bright pop of yellow is calling my name (especially with my usual tan sandals and straw bag). I always machine wash and hang dry. And while FRAME doesn’t necessarily get our sustainable nod, linen, in general, uses less water to produce than cotton.

4. AGOLDE Parker Denim Shorts – **SUSTAINABLE** I found these shorts at the end of the summer last year, and they quickly became my favorites. I wear a size 26.

5. Voloshin Maxi Dress – **SUSTAINABLE** 100% washable silk gorgeousness. Love this thing.

6. Straw Bag – My beloved Clare V. pot de miel bag is, admittedly, tough to travel with. This one, however, is crushable so can pack down flat.

7. Cute Sunnies – My usual tortoiseshell.

8. Salt Water Sandals – I’ve been bringing these sandals on every hot-weather trip for years. Still my favs. (Truly can get completely wet and still be fine.) There’s no cushion, but the sole is so flexible that they’re still very comfy.

9. A Bright Nail Polish – Oooo…this is perfect.

10. Supergoop Glow Sunscreen Stick – I do realize that this product is somewhat ridiculous (it’s basically just sunscreen-highlighter,) but I feel so glowy and glamorous when I use it….let’s just say it goes with the dress.

11. Supergoop Sunscreen Mousse – A longtime family fav. I’ve yet to find one we like better.

But seriously…where should we go? We have a WHOLE WEEK off this year which feels…decadent. I’d love to go back to Cuba, I’ve never been to Mexico — ever — which is crazy, since it’s right there, or we could stay stateside (Florida Keys??) but I’m worried it won’t be hot enough. I’d love somewhere really and truly warm and delicious. Cartagena? Bahamas? Anyone have a killer recommendation?




  1. Check out Puerto Rico! Rainforest, bioluminescent kayaking, caving, cayoneering, beautiful beaches and the charm of Old San Juan. And don’t forget a vibrant restaurant and night life. We are taking 4 teen ages there.

  2. Costa Rica. So many different adventures to choose from: ziplining, rafting, hot springs, volcano and rainforest hikes, hanging bridges, waterfalls, beaches, surfing, incredible wildlife. The weather will be warm, and the people of Costa Rica are also warm and welcoming.

  3. Panama! Headed there for a girls trip soon…. spring break is Florida This year, I got suckered into Harry Potter world for a couple days… but negotiated Clearwater beach so there’s that after hpw! Enjoy 🙂

  4. We did a Bahamian cruise last year that originated in Miami and stopped in Key West…weather was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT – t-shirt-and-shorts warm but I wasn’t a hot, sweaty mess. Same in Nassau. Water was a bit chilly in Nassau but it didn’t stop us from getting in! This year we’re hitting up Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth, Jamaica. 16 days, WOOHOO!!!

  5. Aruba! It’s small enough you can explore the whole island, and I would let my tweens have some autonomy there, very safe. Go off roading in the National park in a dune buggy and then swim in the tidal pool.

  6. OOH, Cartegena! I’ve always wanted to go and just watched Romancing the Stone with my 3 girls so now am even more obsessed! Can’t wait to see where you end up, we’re going to the Mayan Riviera. Quick question, I have and love Saltwaters but am also looking for a simple slide, have you ever worn their slides? The reviews seems more mixed for the slide so I’m sure. Thanks!
