There’s no doubt that winter is the best time to jet off to a tropical vacation in the sunshine. Once the excitement of the holidays and the motivation of a new year are over, February can feel extra cold and dark in comparison. But instead of counting down the days until Spring, why not treat yourself to a well-deserved mid-winter break?
If you’re desperate for some better weather and vitamin D, here are some of the best places to soak in the sunshine. And as you’re planning your trip, don’t forget those tropical vacation outfits for the ultimate winter mood boost!
For the pinnacle of family fun and Florida sunshine, you can’t beat Disney World. From rollercoasters to themed dinners, a trip to Disney World in February will bring that much-needed excitement to February. And on the days you’re not at the park, you can still soak in the sun by the pool in the Sunshine State.
For a winter vacation to Disney World, don’t forget to pack your Blue Marble Geo Open Caftan. The black-and-blue geo print is neutral enough to wear daily, with a pop of fun, colored tassels along the edges. Wear it over a tank top with jean shorts and sneakers for a breezy theme park outfit, or throw it over a bikini for lazy days by the pool. This lightweight, breezy piece will have you forgetting that it was ever winter at all!
If the West Coast is calling your name, February is the perfect time to answer. From sunny San Diego up to vibrant San Francisco, enjoy all the beaches, nature, culture and food that California has to offer.
When you’re packing for a destination with varied or unpredictable weather, versatility is key. The Painted Paisley Black Sarong is a suitcase staple that can take you from a morning walk on the beach to dinner by the bay. Wear it tied asymmetrically around your waist for a cool swimsuit cover up, or wrap it as a scarf or shawl around your shoulders on those crisp Cali nights.
If all you can think about is reading your book with your feet in the sand, then the Bahamas may be your perfect February destination. With pristine beaches, luxe dining opportunities, and swoon-worthy sunsets, the Bahamas is the ultimate place for relaxation.
Packing for the Bahamas means lots of elevated resortwear, swimwear, and accessories. Tropical vacation outfits should be comfortable while making you feel fabulous. Our Painted Floral Maxi Caftan is the perfect flowy statement piece for your trip to the Bahamas. Throw it on over your swimsuit for breakfast by the pool, or dress it up with chunky hoops and wedges for a balmy dinner by the ocean.
If delicious food, vibrant streets and amazing culture are on your February wishlist, then a trip to Mexico is in the cards for you. Whether you head to Tulum, Puerto Escondido, or Cabo, get ready to soak up that vitamin D in Mexico.
With so many activities on the agenda, make sure a short, swingy dress is on your packing list. Our Painted Floral Sarong is perfect for beach walks, strolling through the markets, or tacos by the pool. Take it from day to night by switching your slides to lace-up sandals, and don’t be afraid to layer on colorful, festive jewelry.
If you can’t decide on a destination for your February getaway, then a cruise is for you. With so much to do on and off the boat, your days will be filled with as much (or as little!) as you please.
When packing tropical vacation outfits for a cruise, you want to choose pieces that can be worn by the pool onboard and during adventures onshore. Our Blue Sarong in Ocean Waters is the ultimate nautical accessory you can style with any tropical look. Tie it around your waist or wrap it as a halter dress for the perfect amount of breezy coverage on and off the boat.
If you’re craving fun in the sun, then a trip to the Dominican Republic should be on your schedule for February. Days on the beach followed by happy hour cocktails sounds like a dream winter getaway.
As you’re packing your tropical vacation outfits, don’t forget a long, colorful piece that is its own statement. Our Tropical Geo Maxi Dress is long and flowy with a pop of geometric color. Wear it with a bold necklace and your hair pulled back for an easy yet eye-catching evening look.
