Summer Vacation Must Haves!

Vacations are the best way to unwind, spend quality time with your family, and recharge but what’s a vacation without some fun new outfits and accessories?  Below are a few must haves we’ve picked out from one of my favorite boutiques – Apricot Lane – for you to consider.

COMFORTABLE CLOTHING

You’re on vacation, finally! If there was ever a time for comfy clothing this is it. Flowing off-the-shoulder or cold shoulder tops paired with wide-legged linen pants are perfect pieces.  Sundresses, either knee length or maxis are a must.  You can wear them alone with a cute pair of sandals or wedges, or throw them over a bathing suit to head to lunch.

Rompers are both easy and extremely comfortable.  A cute romper can take you from daytime to night.  For those breezy nights, wear a pair of ripped jeans with a conversational tee and kimono or jacket. 

ACCESSORIES

Regardless of where you are jetting off to, you will need a fun pair or sunglasses to protect your eyes from the rays.  Choose from traditional aviators with pink or blue colored lenses or a cool pair of cat eyes.

Make sure to pair fun jewelry for each of your outfits.  Colorful statement necklaces are so much fun and say, “I’m on vacation!”  Slip on a few bracelets to create some fun arm candy!

You don’t want to lug a lot of stuff around in your bag when sightseeing or to dinner, so opt for a lightweight clutch or cross body that is big enough to carry your essentials. 

Don’t forget to pack a tote bag to carry your things to and from the beach or pool area.

TECHNOLOGY

You cannot forget technology when it comes to vacations!  Nowadays people opt to leave their heavy cameras at home since smartphones have taken over.  Make sure to pack all needed chargers.  If you plan to bring your smartphone to the beach, it may be a good idea to invest in a waterproof cover as well.  Also, Bluetooth portable speakers are fun to bring along.  Pair it with your smartphone to have music on the go!

 Now you will be fashionable and prepared for your summer vacation – just don’t forget the sunscreen!

  1. I have yet to check out Apricot Lane! Their clothes look so lovely! I also need to accessorize more. I pretty much need a wardrobe makeover!

    When traveling, I always bring an external battery pack too so I can charge my phone while on the go, and if there isn’t an outlet near by!

  2. Love your suggestions for summer outfits, Dana — but I say leave the bluetooth speakers at home. I just came back from vacation where several people brought their bluetooth and we were forced to listen to “their music” for a week. They make earbuds for a reason.
