Whether you are planning a last-minute vacation for the final burst of summer or already prepping for your 2023 trip, you might find yourself wondering: where should I go? Lucky for you, there is no shortage of stylish destinations from which to choose. I am sharing a few of my favorites, along with places of interest to check out and what to wear while on vacation, too!
The Destination: Mykonos
Greece features hundreds of breathtaking islands, all with their unique cultures and vacation vibes, but for a little bit of everything, I cannot recommend Mykonos enough. The old town is full of beautiful boutiques and tiny, pedestrian-only streets that you can get lost in for hours. The island also features incredible dining, amazing beach clubs to lounge all day at, and of course, plenty of nightlife for those looking to dance the night away.
What To Do: Enjoy The Nightlife At COYA Mykonos
If a lively dinner and drinks that last long into the night are your thing, I suggest visiting COYA, which is located in the heart of the main town. Combining the cuisine of Peru with the bright architecture of the Greek island, you’ll enjoy delicious fusion food, incredible cocktails, and a lively soundtrack provided by COYA’s in-house music label that will keep you tapping your feet and dancing into the early hours .
What To Wear: VICI Mykonos Pleated Ombre Halter Maxi Dress
Am I biased because this dress has “Mykonos” in the name? Perhaps, but it is with good reason! This vibrant red and orange ombre dress will stand out against the stark white architecture of the island, and since Mykonos is known as the “Island of the Winds” you’ll embrace the breeze without having a Marilyn Monroe moment in this maxi dress.
The Destination: Venice Beach
The city of Los Angeles is full of incredible locations for out-of-towners to visit, but I would recommend making Venice Beach a priority. The city has no shortage of amazing restaurants, hip boutiques, and of course a great beach, but even through all of its changes, it has still kept its counterculture roots and remains a unique spot in LA.
What To Do: Dine On The Beach At The Pier House
What is more iconic California than dining steps from the beach? The newly re-opened Pier House is a gorgeous beachfront restaurant and bar offering refreshing seafood dishes and other California staples along with a standout cocktail menu (the “Great Blue Sky” is my personal favorite). Stop by for a late lunch or happy hour after a day on the sand and enjoy the views.
What To Wear: Rails Arlo Shirt & Boxer Shorts In Citrus Mixed Stripe
Get that laid-back SoCal look with a relaxed matching set that you can wear over your swimsuit as you hit the beach and into Abbot Kinney boutiques after a day in the sun.
The Destination: The Bahamas
A tropical getaway is much closer than you think, especially on the east coast! The Bahamas are about a one-hour flight from Miami (or you can take a ferry) and with ease you’ll be transported to stunning vistas of crystal-clear waters and tropical scenery.
What To Do: Explore The Beaches
The Bahamas are known for their exquisite beaches, so make sure you wander beyond the resort to check out spots like the Pink Sands Beach on Harbor Island, the Lucayan National Park, or Big Major Cay (aka the spot where you can swim with pigs! ).
What To Wear: Myra Swim Davis One Piece
With all that beachfront time, you will be in need of a cute swimsuit! This zip-up one-piece from Myra Swim is equal parts sporty and sexy, with a functional shape that will stay on no matter the water activity and high hips to show off those legs.
