If you are like me, who likes to travel and constantly lives on the suitcase then one of the best parts about the summer season is vacationing. But, if you are also like me you wait until the last minute to pack and suddenly you are stressing about what to bring! Step back, take a breather, and relax because I am here to make your last minute closet raid easier and, of course, chic.
The first area that needs to be tackled is exactly what type of climate will greet you in the destination you are planning to go. I am hoping that no one is trying to visit the snowy Alps, or Chile glacier this summer, so much of what should be brought includes a lot of breezy, lightweight and colorful attire. My favorite and most essential items to pack for any getaway are a variety of bathing suits, and beach dresses. Depending on your figure or mood, I typically pack an assortment of styles. On days that I want to feel sexy I bring my itsy bitsy Agua Bendita bikini. However, there will be those days I want to channel my inner couture and slide into my bright red two-piece from Michael Kors. And lets not forget about those days where your sunburn has taken over and you just want to relax in something a bit more casual. I always remember to pack a comfortable beach cover-up, and recently I am in love with colorful styles from Emilio Pucci.
Let’s not forget about the outfits that happen once the sand is washed away and your skin is applied with aloe. Going for an evening out during vacation is a chance for you to showcase that tan as well as how fashion savvy you really are! A perfect vacation look is a flowy yet feminine sundress that either tapers at the knee or stops just below your ankles. Anything with a bright color or sultry cutout is essential for that night out on the town. Lastly, what kind of fashion blogger would I be if I didn’t comment on the ideal shoes to bring for such a trip? During the day I love to slide into my CHANEL wedge slides, and eventually I switch into my slightly more playful Nicholas Kirkwood flower embellished sandals . These are just some of my many must-have vacationing items, but I want to hear from you. What pieces would you not be able to live without in paradise?
