Summer is the season of escapes. But whether you're off on a glamorous getaway or engulfed in a good book in the backyard, you can bring the breeze of a good getaway with you in these playfully chic kate spade must-haves.

What I love most about kate spade is that no matter what delightfully darling duds you don, it's sure to evoke an emotion. Take for instance these playful pineapple wedges... the moment they're strapped on my feet I feel like I am in the tropics wandering through the palm trees while living carefree on island time. And this breezy embroidered dress has me dying to dine al fresco with a chilled rose-lemon spritzer in hand.

My point is, vacation is a state of mind. It's time we embrace it.

I love an feminine yet bohemian look so it's no surprise I fell for this effortless vintage inspired maxi skirt with a chic ruffled-hem detail by Spell Designs. I love it paired with this off-shoulder top but it also looks great with a (not so) basic plunging tee.

Spell Designs is one of my favorite go-to's (I last wore a dress by Spell here, but I also wore them here + here while in Mexico). It makes me feel like I should be dancing on the beach. It's just the perfect modern-bohemian look that looks and feels inspired by far off places and worldly adventures.

Don't you just love it when your clothing takes you to far off places?

The moment I saw this stripe off shoulder bow top from Chicwish I knew I had to have it. And for only $47 it's a steal with how much I plan on wearing this cutie. I have already worn it three times this week haha. Shhh, don't tell anyone. It's just so easy to throw on. I love it with my white denim and high waisted shorts.

It's been heating up here in Arizona - record temps already. Ugh! I am ready to get the folk out of here and head to Utah for the summer or live on vacation for a few months. Who's with me?! Hawaii anyone? We've been dreaming up our next vacation for our post-IVF transfer relaxation... somewhere where we can relax on the beach in the sun without those pesky little Zika virus skeeters infecting us. Some R&R will definitely be needed after being grounded here in Arizona for a while being poked constantly with needles and prodded with ultrasound goo. TMI? Sorry.

Our summer's are always full of fun in the sun lounging by the pool or traveling to play at the beach. In the warm weather, it's important to me that I feel as effortless as I look, which is why I love this tie-dye bohemian tunic by Tiare Hawaii from HauteLook. It evokes that carefree bohemian beach-vibe while remaining loose, light and comfortable. I particularly love the feminine bell sleeves and the exposed criss-cross back. Throw it over your bikini or pair it with your favorite white denim shorts for a chic summer look.

And you all know how much I love a feminine-yet-bohemian vibe, which is why I'm really excited to partner with HauteLook to share my favorite look from their current Tiare Hawaii flash event that starts today at 1PM PST! But hurry, the sale ends on Saturday, May 14th.
