Although we had been enjoying amazing, spring weather here in London, I was beyond thrilled to soak up some sun and catch all the beach vibes in Bermuda! Of course, I love the bikinis and coverups as much as the next girl, but I equally love resort wear and dressing up for island dinners. That’s why I wanted to cover all the vacation essentials in one shot — the best one stop shop? Ted Baker. From gorgeous luggage to straw beach bags, you can literally find anything and everything to fill these up for your next holiday.
THE BAGS : The bottomline here, is I am obsessed with all three of these gorgeous bags. The pink pom pom beach bag is super sturdy and can hold all of your sun essentials — bonus, it’s really flippin cute! I LOVED it with my swimsuit and am so sad I didn’t snap a pic of them together because they are the perfect pair! I used the adorable cat cross body for days out exploring but also paired it with my evening looks to minimize overpacking! Of course, when you think of Ted Baker you probably think of the gorgeous luggage sets.. I can’t tell you how many times in the airport I am swooning over the patterned carry ons! I love this floral travel bag as a carry on for your flight essentials.. it is a bit narrow at the opening but comfortably fit two laptops, my camera, extra lenses, and a few spare items!
THE SWIMMER : Heading to the beach (and bikini weather!) in early May is a little daunting…like maybe those few extra weeks of barre or spin would make that big of a difference in the beach bod! So as a wise friend once told me, if you can’t tone it, tan it! I opted for a little DIY on that front and started my sunless tanning a few weeks prior to Bermuda (with my fave Vita Liberata) buuuut, if you can’t tone it, or tan it, then buy a neon swimmer! It makes such a difference and this swimmer is made of a sculpting and slimmer fabric to smooth it all out!
THE CLOTHING : This TB geo summer dress can double on holiday as a beach or pool coverup but also is super cute for day time exploring! It is so easy to wear that for several mornings it was go-to for breakfast! **It is sadly sold out right now, but I have linked below my favorite substitute cover ups. For a more causal night out, I love this Bardot top — I think it’s one that would be flattering on everyone and it’s super versatile so can be worn in a variety of different ways! I paired it with these tropical oasis shorts to add that vacay vibe to my look! And this coral/red color is another one that really makes a tan pop. For an island night out, I love this strapless striped dress. It comes in the vibrant red or a classic black and white, but either choice are a chic way to dress up the beach dinners.
