Labor Day signals the final days of summer and we’re already reminiscing about lounging in the sun, sipping on frozen cocktails, and jetting off on vacation, of course. We asked some of the stylish ladies at our office to share their favorite travel photos, and they’ve racked up a seriously eclectic mix of getaway spots, from Greece to Indonesia to just outside NYC. Check out their snapshots below and enjoy your own trip down memory lane — what better way to unwind on this relaxing holiday?

Prepare to be charmed: Home décor guru Jonathan Adler’s seriously adorable accessories make their debut on Gilt tomorrow. We’re loving the designer’s chic jute pouches, stamped with summer-inspired graphics for a major pop of color. And these little must-haves are ready to go everywhere: Toss one in your tote to use as a clutch, stash your sunblock and shades at the beach, or earn the “best houseguest of the summer” award by bringing one as a gift. Better yet? You can snag one for just $35.
Barely-there bikinis are a dime a dozen at the beach, which means the Bettie Page-inspired bombshell will definitely steal the spotlight in the surf. Dial it back a few decades and get in on the ultra-hot trend that’s making serious waves this summer: Pin-up-style swimwear. Covering up never looked so sexy, thanks to high-waisted cuts and clever ruching that draw attention to the teeniest part of your waist, creating hourglass curves to rival those cheeky Vargas girl paintings. Eco-friendly brand Jungle Gurl serves up made-to-flatter suits for every body type, including the chic Ali Bikini Set and the Laila One-Piece Swimsuit here. And lest you think you’re headed toward Pleasantville territory, keep things fresh and modern with slick metal shades, colored sun hats, and a classic red lip (Taylor Swift and Rihanna show you how it’s done).
