Isle Style : Resort Wear

Although many are busy planning for the holiday season, I am planning for the resort season.  Luckily, B and I still have to enjoy our honeymoon so I do need to plan for a tropical getaway.  I started perusing the Neiman Marcus catalog on my ipad and became instantly smitten when I saw these pieces. First of all, the pink raybans spoke to me (LOUDLY) and will definitely be going on my wish list, also isn't the detail on the clutch so sweet?   Looking at gorgeous pieces like these as we approach winter, motivates me to eat well and take care of my body so I don't run into a panic once we hit beach season. In California, beach season can happen ay any time, but truthfully one should always be ready!  By the way, in case you have an ipad, I highly recommend downloading the Google catalogs app, not only is it environmentally green, but it's like free glossies to peruse without the clutter. 
What is your must have item when you go tropical?

Love that Jill Stuart dress.
Is resort wear a new term or am I just behind the times? ;)

Beach season any time...yes, always in my world, too. :)
Very pretty options, Laura.
In the Caribbean, these were my must-haves, regardless of where I was going or what I was doing...admittedly my list is NOT glamorous:

high spf
black bikini
croakies and polarized sunglasses
cotton hat
bandana/scarf for windblown hair
board shorts
surf shirt for sun protection
sarong (all-purpose must-have! I've used mine as a beach towel, showering towel, skirt, blanket, for shade)
wee beach dress
bottle of water
Swiss Army knife
backpack for everything
With these items, I was ready for anything- hiking, sailing, beaching, liming, dining (strappy beach dress doubles as appropriate restaurant attire).

oops- you said "must have item", and i gave you a laundry list! lol

ms. givens- the term "resort wear" has been around for a while. we used it in the 80s when i worked in upscale shops...it's also now called "cruise wear", which you've probably heard of. but no, you are not behind the times! :D

I love Neiman Marcus...and they are starting to get alot of their spring things in online. It is still 80 degrees here in South Florida. I want some cooler weather. Hope all is well.
