What happens when a retail fashion merchandising maven gets married, leaves her job, and sails the Pacific? Eventually, she heeds the call that persists in her head (and heart) to help other women look great out of a tiny suitcase or boat closet. At least, that is what Elizabeth Hynes did.
After her 18-month sailing honeymoon in 2008, she and her new husband returned to corporate lives, hers working for a large retail fashion chain. But Elizabeth could not shake the idea of curating small coordinated collections that can be mixed and matched into a multitude of looks to make shopping, packing, and looking stylish easy. So in 2015, Vacay Style was born.
A new Vacay Style collection of 5 highly versatile items comes out about once a month. When added with a couple of essentials like jean shorts and white jeans, you can create a dozen or more different outfits and if you want, you can even use 1 pair of shoes for each look. The wrinkle-resistant fabrics travel well and feel great in tropical climates. As the Vacay motto states, “Pack Easy. Look Amazing. Have Fun.”
We love not having to run around to stores hoping to find coordinating separates and the wrinkle-free fabrics that look great right out of the suitcase. Carrying an extra piece in your bag while out for a casual adventure makes it possible for a quick change on the go for a fine dining experience later that evening. We love these fashions!
