Summer is in full swing, and we’re eagerly packing our bags for some long weekends away.
Where are we going? What will we wear? We’re so glad you asked!
We cruised Forbes’ list of top travel destinations for 2018 to choose our not-so-far-away destinations and then paired them with GAIA tops and accessories and bottoms and shoes from our friends at Cabana. Every beautiful GAIA item is handmade by a refugee artisan rebuilding her life in Dallas, Texas (a great place to visit, by the way).
Check out these gorgeous U.S. spots and the outfits to match.
Asheville, North Carolina
We’ll breathe more deeply and rest more soundly when we nestle into nature in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We’ll at least drop by the Biltmore Estate, even if we don’t get to stay there.
The idea of Motor City and the birthplace of Motown really gets our motor running. It’s a city seeing a revival — and you know we love a good starting-over story. Top of our list: a ride on the Q-Line streetcar.
New Orleans, Louisiana
The Big Easy can get a bit sweaty in the summer months, but we don’t mind. Hotels and restaurants are plenty air conditioned, and if we really need to cool things off, we’ll grab a frozen daiquiri.
Palm Beach County, Florida
As if miles of sandy white beaches weren’t enough, Palm Beach County is more than fun in the sun. We’re hitting Delray Beach for its incredible Japanese gardens and the must-see costume museum in Boca Raton.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
The U.S. territory still needs our help after last year’s hurricane. One way to give back is to go stay. We’ll book a room, make some dinner reservations, and plan daytrips to rainforests and rum castles.
