I’ve actually booked a tropical getaway for April, and I am starting to get my clothing for the trip together. I like to pack as many mix and match outfits as possible, and clothing in the same color family, so I don’t have to pack so much clothing. Dresses are another great idea since they are only one item, and I usually pack wraps or scarves to change their look.

Today’s This or That is two outfits that I’ll be taking with me on vacation, along with that gorgeous coral maxi dress I styled last week. They are all in the same color family, and I think they will look fabulous on vacation. Now, if I can only talk Joe into letting me get him a few new outfits, I’ll be all set. He only wants golf clothing, and there aren’t any golf courses where we are going. He will have to learn to relax and chill beside the pool with me and take those sunset walks on the beach we’ve all read about in romance novels. Lol!

This 3/4 Sleeve Cotton Tunic Top is gorgeous and has bright and vivid colors, plus I love the shells and coral print. The tunic is also longer on the sides, which is a flattering look, and the v-neckline is only slightly open, so it is not revealing. The beach theme print is perfect for a vacation getaway, or even if you are only dreaming about getting away. I’m wearing a size 1 tunic, and it fits great. Here are a couple of other tunics that are similar and super cute.

The Faux Coral Chandelier Earrings are so cute, and I love the flower accent with the faux pearl center. The dangling coral and seashells give you a beach vibe even if you are only running errands around town. The Multicolor Ring is one that you can wear a lot this spring and summer since it will match so many summer colors. I’m wearing a size 7 ring, and I love how different the ring is from any of my other jewelry.

I added a pair of Tory Burch Miller Cloud Sandals to my outfit. I have a pair of Leopard Miller Sandals, but I wanted to try the cloud version because the other ones don’t have a lot of padding. I’ve only worn these a couple of times, but I really like them so far. The hardest part is getting used to the strap between my toes, which always takes a little while for me to get used to. Lol! I sized up to a 9.5, but I think a 10 would be even better; I would rather have a little extra room at the back than have my heel on the edge.

Now, for the THAT outfit, which is the same pair of jeans, but with a different top and jewelry. Minor tweaks can make a huge difference in the way an outfit looks. The Aqua Stacked Frayed Hem Girlfriend Crops are perfect for spring and summer. The frayed hem doesn’t look distressed; instead, it looks like a design detail. Even those who aren’t fans of distressed jeans will love these crops. The Aqua color is so pretty, but these crops also come in several other colors. I think I have these ordered in white also; sometimes, I get confused about what I have on order. Lol! I’m wearing a size 1, but I’m sending them back for a .5 instead. I ordered the white pair in a 1 also because I don’t like my white jeans and pants to fit tight, so they will probably fit me fine.

This Aqua Print Ruana from Chicos is what I styled yesterday with the coral maxi dress. I loved the Ruana with the dress, and I think it looks fabulous with these crops. The White Microfiber Tank Top comes in many different colors, and it is an essential summer item that we all need. Plus, it is so affordable that you can grab more than one. I size up in these tops so that it doesn’t cling to me, so I am wearing a size 2, which is perfect. If you want this to be a layering top and fit closer to your body, then order your usual size.

These are the same Aqua Crop Jeans, but I’m wearing a pair of all-white sneakers with this outfit. I’ve been searching for a pair of solid white sneakers that I can wear with anything. I like this pair, but they are too big for me. I ordered my usual size 9, but I needed to size down at least a half size, maybe even more. I’ve got a different pair on order, so I’ll check those out, but these have to go back.

Now it is time to vote on which outfit you like the best? Even though I wore the same jeans, the looks were different. THIS = Coral Tunic Top and Aqua Jeans, THAT = Ruana and Aqua Jeans. I suppose we could have a BOTH category if you think both of these outfits are something you would wear.
