As are most people, one of the things I’m most looking forward to this summer is traveling, and whether its a day-cation or a stay-cation, a little time away from everyday life is a great thing. Packing for said trips, however, is usually not so great. We’ve rounded up some summer trip essentials to make your life a little easier and let you get to enjoying your trip!
The key to vacation fashion is easy comfort – you want to bring items that can be easily interchanged (thus allowing you to bring less with you), easily packed without wrinkling, and comfortable to wear.
You’ll want a dress that is casual, but can also be dressed up, such as the Palmer Short Sleeve T-Shirt Dress from Lilly Pulitzer. Its classic print allows you to keep that stylish look, while pairing it with wedges and a statement necklace make it perfect for a beachside dinner.
A tote bag is a must for any vacation – the right one will go great with any outfit as well as carry all of your essential items (phone, map, wallet, makeup, etc.). We’re loving this Vince Camuto ‘Jace’ Tote, with a very trendy perforated cutout on the sides. Ray-Ban Wayfarers are the perfect addition to any outfit, as they add a touch of classic style, and are available in a variety of colors to best complement your skin tone.
For breezy days, you’ll need a top that is the perfect combination of lightweight style, such as the Keeper Chambray Shirt from J.Crew. You can pair it with shorts, a maxi skirt, or even cutely tie it over a maxi drew to keep you warm and fashionable. Toss on a pair of white shorts, and pair it with these Coach Chailey Sandals for an easy day look.
Last but not least, you’ll want to make sure you have a great coverup with you if you’ll be hitting the beaches. We’re obsessed with the Embroidered Mirrors Caftan, since it adds a touch of glam to your swim style.
