It seems like every time I go anywhere, I overhear people talking about their travel plans. Whether it's a roundtrip ticket to Mykonos for an all-inclusive getaway or a staycation in Malibu at a shared house with friends, it seems like we're all more than ready for a little R&R. And to make the packing process a little easier (does choosing Insta-worthy 'fits for vaycay give anyone else major anxiety?), I tapped two fashion insiders to give me the low-down on what they're stuffing in their suitcases for their upcoming trips. The consensus? A bunch of Lilly Pulitzer. Can you blame them, though? Going onto the Lilly Pulitzer site is basically stepping into a virtual tropical oasis with bright colors and splashy prints jumping out at you on every page. Keep scrolling to see their vacation-worthy looks. (And, just a warning, be ready to book your next flight.)

"This summer, we're heading back home to NYC for a week. We've been living in Miami for almost a year, so we're super excited to go back and catch up with friends and family as well as visit some of our favorite places in the city. I'm excited to wear this set on walks around the city. I styled this look with white sneakers, a simple top-handle bag, fun sunglasses, and gold jewelry—so it's comfortable yet super stylish. I love dressing up, but having a casual look in my suitcase for walks or breakfast is always a must."
"I'll be wearing this dress for a brunch during a staycation type of day in my own city. This look gives off major getaway vibes as it's colorful, lightweight, and unique. It makes me want to just kick back and have some fun! And I love the way the dress fits—I'm 5'5", and the length is perfect on me. I also love that I can dress it up or down with some flat sandals. My favorite summer accessories are sunglasses and gold jewelry (they look great with everything), so they were definitely a must when styling this dress."

"When packing for vacation I tend to gravitate toward easy, versatile pieces that can be worn day or night. And this dress is just that—it's simple, elegant, and multi-functional. You can wear it almost anywhere: a dinner date, breakfast, sightseeing in the city, and so much more. When it comes to styling, I think keeping it simple is key since the dress has three colors. You want it to be the main focus of your outfit. Shoes and accessories should be a solid color with no prints or patterns."
"I have a trip planned to Hawaii this summer, and this pink dress is first on my packing list. Everyone needs a breezy dress that's practical for those hot summer days, especially in humid Hawaii. It's easy to throw on when you don't want to make an effort but still want to look chic. I love that I can wear it with anything (in this case, an ultra-cute straw bag) and feel happy in it. It's easy to style, fits amazing, and will keep me cool all summer."
