the vacationer {st. john}

Dress: St. John; Shoes: Manolo Blahnik; Sunglasses: Celine

I love a great dress that can just travel.


You know what I mean. The kind that can easily be worn to work, to happy hour, to dates and back again -- it doesn't let you down. You feel chic, put together, comfortable and like yourself in it. A jack of all trades.

When I find dresses that fit the bill, they're usually the first I grab when I'm heading out on vacation. Since it's always a little unpredictable what'll be thrown at you when you get to your final destination, I like knowing I have a secret weapon in my back pocket. One that goes the extra mile for me (and bonus points if it happens to get you compliments from your fellow bon vivants at the hotel).

This is where St. John comes in.

St. John recently invited me to their showroom to check out their pre-fall collection and while I've always known about the brand and some of their heritage knits background, I've never actually worn any of their pieces. Fast forward a few hours of playing dress up at their flagship store and I had amassed quite the stack of clothes I wouldn't mind coming home with me. All comfortable, easy to move about in and still timelessly classic.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be styling a handful of their pre-fall pieces as well as cooking up something fun over on Pinterest (more on that soon!). As for my first selection? This drop waist flared beauty you see here was an instant pick of mine -- the color, the fit -- it was too good to pass up, so I packed it up and hopped over the border with it, down to Baja, Mexico. I think with my newfound tan and a little extra sun-kissed beachy hair, it fits in all too well with the sunsets down here. 


This post was in collaboration with St. John. As always, all opinions and styling are my own. Thank you for supporting all This Time Tomorrow collaborations!

    The beach and the sunset steals the show though - wish it was warm enough to enjoy the beach in the evenings still here!

  9. I used to think of St. John's as old lady clothes, but they do have some really cute stuff (this dress is clear evidence).
    And oceans and sunsets make for great photos - so lovely. Looks like you had a great trip.
