This summer (and every summer) L2B writers have caught themselves daydreaming about the perfect vacation. Being the young professionals and college students that we are, these fantasies are out of our reach…for now.
So every Friday for the next few weeks, we will reveal our dreams to you–with a coordinating outfit, of course.
Week 2: Colleen O’Flynn
“There ain’t no time like the present they say/Lets cruise all the way down A1A”.
These few words that Kenny Chesney sings in his song “Outta Here” has always made me dream about leaving my worries behind and stick my toes in the sand down in Key West, Florida. What draws me in most about Key West is the laid back way of life; where a cute bikini (or 5) could be all I need.
But, let’s be serious, I would pack way more than just 5 bikinis. What about beach cover ups, shopping outfits, and nights out on the town?! Below, I have picked out a dream Key West vacation outfit. It is casual and cool but still classy. I imagine myself sitting on a deck for dinner after a day of relaxing on the beach with a margarita and a gorgeous view of the ocean in the background.

I love the light and flowing feel of the romper I picked out (and that it looks like a dress!) accented by gold accessories. Lately, I have been loving the neutral look with just a pop of color, which I get with the coral wedges. In the summertime, I feel that less is more.
Now all I need is that ticket to Florida…
Where would you go on your dream vacation? What would you wear?
