Pack these 10 items for your Summer vacation
1. Straw Boater Hat
A straw boater hat is the hat of Summer. Not only does this accessory add a perfect finishing touch to any travel outfit, but it's practical too! A straw boater hat will keep your skin shaded and safe from the sun's harsh rays.
2. Colorful Silk Scarf
This is the most versatile accessory you can bring with you on your next summer vacation. A colorful silk scarf will add a splash of personality to your outfits, whether it's tied up in your hair or wrapped around your neck. It's also perfect to use as a chic sarong at the beach or pool too!
3. A Good Book
A long drive or plane ride, lounging by the pool or sitting under the umbrella at the beach, a good book is a summer vacation necessity. It's a perfect way to enjoy your "me-time".
4. A Clutch
If there is one purse to bring on your next Summer vacation, make it a clutch. It's compact, practical and versatile. The size will fit perfectly in your luggage and it will work for dinner and exploring alike.
5. A Great Pair of Denim Jeans
Tank tops, crop tops, lightweight chiffon blouses, any Summer top your take with you on vacation will look perfectly sleek with some denim jeans. They are the one piece you should never travel without, regardless of season actually.
6. A Kimono
We love when a piece has multiple uses, it's something that just makes sense when traveling. A kimono looks chic worn over a dress, paired with some denim cutoffs and worn as a beach coverup. Definitely don't go on a Summer vacay without one.
7. A Face Mask
From plane rides to the hot temperatures of summertime, a quality face mask is a must when packing for this season's travel. Especially if you're planning on soaking up sun on your vacation, you'll want to not wait until you're back home to replenish your skin.
8. A Maxi Dress
One piece that you'll be able to wear all day during your Summer travel is a maxi dress. It's easy to wear casually or dressed up. You can do some exploring in a comfortable maxi while on vacation, or wear it over your bathing suit-a must-have in your luggage.
9. Statement Earrings
Summer vacation is usually a trip that involves less jewelry, since you'll most likely be walking to and from the beach and pool all day. However, a good pair of statement earrings add the perfect amount of pizazz to even a simple white dress or tee and shorts outfits. The perfect jewelry piece to take with you.
10. A Pair of Comfortable Pants
If there is one word to describe a Summer vacation, it's relaxation. And with that comes the need for a pair of comfortable pants that you can slip on while ordering room service, sight-seeing or wearing on a flight.
