Wish you were here

White sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters, plenty of sunshine and nothing but blue skies … we’ve found it! We found summer!

The official start of summer is still weeks away (sigh), but our new Summer colors and styles arrive in just a few days. To celebrate, we thought we’d bring you a much-deserved sneak peek — straight from our Summer photo shoot in always-sunny Boca Raton, Florida.

A favorite destination, Boca Raton holds a special place in our hearts. Our namesake, Vera Bradley, and her husband, Edward, called beautiful Boca home for years. So naturally, it was a place we couldn’t wait to explore.

Our photo shoot started at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. Situated on 350-plus acres in the heart of Florida’s Gold Coast, the fabled resort was designed by legendary architect Addison Mizner in 1926. When we weren’t busy taking in the resort’s breathtaking architecture, we were out exploring the location’s seven (yes, seven!) pools, private beach and luxury marina. We even took a morning catamaran sail and a day trip to the famously beautiful Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. It was an amazing trip, and we can’t wait to start planning where we’ll go next.

After all, summer is all about being outdoors and seeing new places. Whether you’re exploring an exotic paradise or a special location in your very own backyard, we promise to add happy colors — and a little extra fun — to every adventure.

So where will summer take you? Share your summer stories with us all season long using the hashtag #vbexplore on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. We can’t wait to hear from you!
