Have Bikini Will Travel: Swimsuits to Match Your Travel Destination

Preppy prints? Teeny-bikinis? Sporty Styles? Travel destinations have a style all their own, on and off the beach. With so many swimsuit styles available, knowing what type of bathing suit to pack is half the challenge. I gave the scoop on where to go and what to pack for a swimsuit-centric getaway!

1// Palm Springs Vacation Style

This darling palm-print bikini by Milly puts the palm in Greater Palm Springs. Stay at the Sands Hotel and Spa in Indian Wells. You’ll feel right at home amongst the retro-vibe, pink decor and green palms. Daily activities include spa + lounge poolside + read book + repeat, so the off-the-shoulder style with suit the laid-back vibes just fine.

2// Boho Chic Mexico Getaway

The only thing missing from this boho-fringe Anna Kosturova bikini is a hammock and some major R&R. Which thankfully you can find (along with your inner eco-chic hippie) at Nomade Hotelin Tulum, Mexico.  Available at

4// California Coast Road Trip

Wish they could all be California Girlsindeed. The little string bikini is as quintessential as the Beach Boys. Whether you choose a skimpy version or opt for a style with a little more coverage, the string bikini is the little black dress of swimsuits. A classic. Stay beachside at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalowsin Santa Monicafor plenty of fun in the California sun. Kushcush by Kerry Cushman swimsuit.

5// Vacation goals. Dream trip to the Maldives

If paradise had a color it would be light aqua. This textured bikini by L.Space will camouflage perfectly in the seafoam paradise of the Maldives. Good thing because you’ll neverwant to leave the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi. Paradise found. Bikini available at

Beach Bag Essentials

Summer is here! Time to pack up the beach bag and hit the sand. I gave The Fashion Spot the inside scoop on my beach bag essentials. Check ’em out and tell me… what’s in your bag?

I live on the West coast, but my monogrammed L.L. Bean beach tote reminds me of my summers spent in Maine. What’s inside? Take a peek!

1). Coola sunscreen, organic and smells amazing.

2). I almost always have at least two Kushcush swimsuits on hand. The Coquette in Blush Lace is one of my go-to faves.

3). Evian mist for hot days.

4). Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco spray, reminds me of being on vacation and is the only scent I wear.

5). Always my sketchbook.

6). Matchbox cars and healthy snacks for my son, Jax.

7). California Baby Hair De-tangler (which I originally bought for Jax, but it’s fantastic on my long hair!).

8). I’m obsessed with the Next Issue iPad app. It’s like carrying 20 magazines in one.

9). Kushcush printed scarves. They’re a major multi-tasker: from beach cover-up to blanket to scarf… and a lovely pop of style!

10). Miu Miu cross-body purse so I can easily downsize from the beach to a seaside lunch without carrying my entire beach bag.


See you at the beach!
