When the weather outside is cold and dreary, there’s nothing better than a tropical getaway to shake off our winter blues. Although March is just around the corner, those summer beach days we’re longing for still seem so far away. Whether you have plans for a tropical retreat or simply want to make believe, we have just the playlist for you.

We asked fashion designer Mara Hoffman to curate a mix for a seaside escape. Best known for her incredibly colorful tropical and worldly prints, she certainly knows a thing or two about the beach—just take a look at her Instagram. She put together a playlist for the ultimate day-into-night on the shore—whether you’re kicking it back in the Caribbean or in your own bedroom. From taking a dip in the ocean to dancing with piña coladas next to a bonfire, her mix of reggae, psych, and soul is the perfect soundtrack to your seashore weekend.
