Now that Christmas is over and my Instagram is blowing up with pictures from St. Barts and Cabo San Lucas, I am more than craving a tropical vaca. I honestly wouldn’t care if it was the beach or on a boat in the middle of a lake, just needing some vitamin C, cold drinks and sun-kissed skin. Although in all reality I wont be taking a trip like this till summer so of course this just wishful thinking. I guess I will be living vicariously through Instagram photos until then.

If I was jetting off to someplace warm and sunny, my two must-have bikinis for 2014 would be the two above. Growing up I would have never chosen bikinis that weren’t strapless or halter topped. Now, I am loving the bra top look. This black Prism bikini is to die for. Every woman should own a black bikini. I feel like it’s a staple piece in a sort of summer way. Very classic and sophisticated. Plus, black attracts the sun :). For the light pink Made by Dawn bikini, now this is a shocker even for me that I am completely obsessed with it. Again, love that it’s a bra top. When I first saw this I was immediately attracted to the cut and color. Plus, how amazing would it look paired with sun-kissed skin?

As for my go-to shoes, lets just say I will somehow get my hands on these Alexander Wang strappy mules. The thing about these heels is the versatile that comes along with them. I would gladly pair these heels with a summer dress or skinnies and an awesome going out top. And for the these Marni sandals, I think I would absolutely live in them all summer. I’m not huge into embellishment but I just couldn’t get over the hunter green color and the style. May not be getting these exact ones but I guarantee you I will be getting some very similar.

To end this daydreaming mood board in the middle of winter, lets just say eating a Chanel banana for breakfast every morning would just be the cherry on top of it all.
