Say aloha to summer, because it’s right around the corner and things are starting to heat up! A great way to transition into the warmer months is getting your wardrobe ready, which is why we love the island-inspired colorful print trend. It makes us feel as though we are on summer vacation already. And when we think of summer, we always think of Lilo & Stitch. Lilo is the perfect character to draw inspiration from for this trend, because she always rocks colorful prints and is ready for any adventure Stitch might throw her way. So sit back, relax, and get on island time with these vacay friendly outfits.
This first look is perfect for a date, school, or just walking the streets with your totally normal alien… we mean dog. A brightly tangerine colored tank paired with a flowy cream cotton maxi is relaxed and stylishly comfortable. Throw on some tropical slip-ons sneaks to run around in and slip your necessities into a cross body bag – we just love this pineapple see-through one! Palm tree earrings are adorable and we think Nani would definitely approve of these gold ones.

When you are strolling along your private island, (hey, a girl can dream) the perfect ensemble has to be a breathable sleeveless tropical dress and white t-strap sandals with gold accents. Shade yourself with a wide white floppy straw hat and put your magazine and snacks in a nicely sized straw bag. We love these cute bracelets, especially the one that says ‘take a splash’ and feel they embody the right sense relaxation when you’re on said island.

Catch A Wave
When you’re hitting the beach you need powerful prints to stand out. We love this tropical bathing suit, which provides enough coverage for catching a wave! Make a cool statement with a cover-up that you can throw on when you leave, bonus points if it has parrots! Comfy lavender flip-flops are great to walk around in the hot sand. Tortoise shell cateye sunglasses protect your peepers and a hot pink water bottle will keep you hydrated.
