I've been following the brand XIX palms for a while now - I'm pretty positive it's called Nineteen Palms but don't quote me on that. The lovely founder was one of the first few companies that I started working with in fashion and I've continued to be a fan of her bohemian printed dresses and flattering silhouettes ever since. Somehow, they always make me feel sexy and slim by accentuating all the right places. She has found the perfect point at your waist to make you feel 5 lbs slimmer (not that you need to be at all, you're perfect as is, little lady!). BUT, I feel like I can always down a pizza and still feel fabulously confident... and if that isn't a reason to buy a dress, what is?

Printed wrap dresses are part of my signature look and I try to use various styles of accessories to change the feeling of the outfit from boho, to edgy, chic or dressed up. This time I simply paired this yellow floral print with my rose-colored, velvet Chinese Laundry shoes from Zooshoo. These massive platforms are the first step to getting date night ready with my 6' 5" fiance!

OOTD: Effortless Vacation Style in Hawaii
Knot Sisters Dress
The Knot Sisters Dress 2

As you can probably tell from my Instagram feed, I've been traveling non-stop for the last month. First we went to Costa Rica, then to Orange County to celebrate the holidays and on to Hawaii to bring in the New Year. It's been an amazing break and a great adventure but now I'm headed back home to San Francisco and couldn't be more excited for everything that's to come in 2018. Luckily, most of my travel time was spent in tropical destinations so packing for a month straight was fairly easy. The trick to my vacation style success? Effortless dresses that are breezy, flattering and can be easily translated from beach days to dinner nights. This coral dress from The Knot Sisters is, by far, one of my favorites that I brought along. I've included a full list of my breezy dress favorites for you. If you want the exact dress I lived in this last month shown above, you can find it here.  Note: It's currently on sale! I absolutely love this brand's effortless Southern California style and the way they style their pieces is always perfectly on point. Don't believe me, just look at the photos below. 

With love, Chantelle
