Summer is here and travel is once again open for business. I have a few suggestions on what to throw into your suitcase for your next fun destination.
Basic White T-shirt -
A classic item to throw on with jeans, a skirt or under a jean jacket or blazer.
Jeans - What I really like about the jeans of today is that anything works. Pick your favorite style that works for you and you are set. Straight legs, skinny, baggy, frayed, no fray, belled, high-rise or mid-rise. What's most important is that they are comfy and you feel good in them.
Yoga Pants or Joggers - Both of these travel well and are so comfortable. Perfect option for many activities.
Maxi Dress - My choice is a black jersey.
You can dress it up with some fun jewelry and a Kimono, or throw on some flip flops and walk the beach. There are so many fun summer colors available, solids and prints and they travel extremely well.
Kimono - You all know I love them.
Perfect for dressing up your jeans or dress or throw on as a bathing suit cover-up. Check out my Kimono Crazy post.
Jean Jacket - Goes with everything!
Comfortable Shoes - A must have!!
A dressy pair of sandals, some sneakers and casual flip flops. My favorites in that same order are Tory Burch, Blowfish and Reef.
Fun and Stylish Summer Hat - Switch up your outfit with a cute wide brimmed hat. They aren't just for a bad hair day anymore. They look adorable with any outfit. Perfect to help shield your face from the harmful rays of the sun and very handy when going from the pool or beach to grab some lunch. Also a must when you are hiking or just taking a leisurely stroll. And yes, they still come in handy if you are having a bad hair day!!
Large Tote Bag - Everyone needs a large bag to carry all their essentials in when traveling. It
might as well be cute!
There are endless choices. Select one that works with your style and you can use it for so many of your fun vacation destinations. Pool, beach, shopping and if you are lucky enough to be with your grandchildren, your bag will always be full. Stylish and functional!
Sunglasses, Sunscreen and a Good Book - These are a must for anywhere you go. We need to protect our eyes and skin whenever we are going to be outside. Sunglass styles are endless. Just make sure they have 100% protection from both UVB and UVA rays.
Mimi Jackie gave us some great suggestions on sunscreens in an earlier post. Be sure to take a look and find the one that is right for you and your family. Also, check out this post from Nana Alison for suggested beach reads, this summer read from Mimi Jackie, and this book review from a recent post.
I hope that some of you will be able to take that fun trip that has been put on hold for so long. Hopefully, something on this list will make your travel easier and that you have a wonderful time!
You can find some of these items on two of my favorite Boutique websites.
Safe travels and stay safe,
