American model Leyna Bloom knows how to ring in the New Year the right way. The three-time SI Swimsuit model took to Belize recently for a tropical escape from winter weather and the chance to relax and reset as 2024 kicks off.

Not only is she giving us the most immaculate vacation inspo—it’s January and in a few weeks, we’re sure that just about everyone will be looking for an escape from the cold—but she’s also providing us with the best getaway style for when we take our next trip.

The Chicago native has been soaking up the sun in tropical paradise in just about the best style we’ve seen of late. In an Instagram carousel that the model shared from her recent excursion to the coastal country, she wore a intricate, strappy black dress with a series of daring front and side cut-outs. She paired the number with simple gold jewelry for her day in the sun and sported her hair in its beautiful, natural brown curls.

“Paradise 🌴 it’s what I’m built for,” Bloom captioned the post, which included a handful of sultry car selfies and a snap of her drinking a bright pink smoothie in front of a vibrant painted storefront.

You may not yet have plans to take a tropical trip anytime soon, but we’re going to guarantee Bloom’s post will make you want to change that. At least, it’s certainly making us want to do so.
