#DestinationBoden: Mexico & San Francisco

In need of summer holiday style  inspiration? Welcome back to #DestinationBoden. We’ve got stylish outfit options to cover every type of holiday adventure. In this three-part series, we’ll discover how some of our favourite fashion insiders dress for the beach, sunny city breaks and exotic island adventures.

Jet-set dressing has never been so easy.

Marjorie makes waves in Mexico 

I spent nearly a week in Isla Mujeres (Women’s Island), a stunning Caribbean island off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. Aside from its beautiful beaches, it’s also known for its colourful buildings. This is paradise for a someone like me who’s  obsessed with colour and relaxation.”

Flower Power
“I can never have too many flowers in my life, hence why I was drawn to the Helene dress. The colourful floral print detail and the sheer sleeves bring a summer-friendly form of easy elegance for day or night. I paired it with vibrant red Jocelyn sandals and matching sunglasses to give the look a real jolt of colour.”

Light & Bright
“Comfort and style are critical when you’re travelling round in the summer heat. For a day exploring the island’s shops I chose the pretty Vanda dress. It’s a sophisticated shape but is lightweight enough for a day of strolling. I added a pair of block heel sandals which were great for all the walking I did and finished things off with a fits-all-your-finds shopper.”

Dive In
“Who doesn’t need a pair of pink heels in their life, especially on holiday? These beautiful Pamela mules  contrasted perfectly with the blue tones of the Cora skirt and were rarely off my feet. The swimsuit worked surprisingly as a top which made it very convenient  for spontaneous, post-breakfast ocean dips.”

Yes To Yellow
“The colour yellow just brings a smile to my face. The Riviera top brought a touch of glamour to my daytime look and paired really well with the structure of the shorts. My toes also enjoyed the cute upgrade from flip-flops in the Henrietta espadrilles.”

Get Shirty
“This versatile shirt dress is already the MVP (most valuable player) in my summer wardrobe. Pair it with ballet flats for a casual day at the office or sandals and your favourite beach bag for a walk on the beach. I wore it for a day on the beautiful Baker Beach in San Fran.”

Accessorise All Areas
“I paired the dress with a classic pair of tan sandals with grosgrain ribbon and this big, beautiful beach bag. All that’s missing is a nice cocktail.”

“A California chardonnay and the incredible views of San Francisco Bay – what more does a girl need?  These trousers, actually  They are so comfortable and a perfect fit for day or night, work week or weekend.”
