Vacation Ready with Persifor | Resort 2020

February 3, 2020

This time last week I was sitting on the beach, drinking a watermelon mocktail, and living my best life, PLEASE TAKE ME BACK! I took my first actual vacation, not workcation in like two years and I must say it was wonderful. I have a jam-packed month planned so I wanted to make sure I made time to unwind and relax before the craziness starts! I’ll get into those details later of course! Today I wanted to share with you the resort wear line that I travel with for basically all of my warmer travels, PERSIFOR!

I had the pleasure of meeting Alex, the creative behind Persifor maybe two years ago or so and immediately became inspired. Alex goes above and beyond to make sure that she is creating the perfect pieces for her customers, and she tries to find inspiration in EVERYTHING.

Last year when I took a workcation to the Bahamas, I packed Persifor dresses in my suitcase for the first time and haven’t looked back since. The dresses are breathable in the most humid of places and provide a timeless silhouette that can be dressed up or dressed down.

It was a no brainer for me to pack Persifor for the trip that I took last week! I stayed true to picking her bodycon style of dress that is more forgiving than most, but I also tried a new flowy style dress that I wanted to live in the whole time!


I wore this lovely dress named the Brie Dress, anytime I was near the pool or beach and one time when we ventured out into the city. My favorite part of the dress is the tie detail on the back!

While on the trip I also wore the Kilpatrick Dress Verdue. This was my dinner + event dress while I was on the trip. This dress is more of a wear with heels or wedges kind of dress instead of wearing it with sandals, but that’s just my opinion. I received so many compliments while wearing this dress out and about in the city. I think its the perfect mix of business and play.


I would love to know which Persifor dress is your favorite! She has so many great ones, it was hard for me to choose haha! Now excuse me while I go dream about the next time I can wear these dresses!
