It's almost July, and most of us will be jetting off for the summer, from now until September. While I am excited to have a few trips lined up, I'm dreading the packing process. I am a famous overpacker, much to the dismay of my family, boyfriend, and myself to be honest. I did some research this time around, looking through outfits from my past trips and combing through the internet for absolute must haves for a summer vacation. I've rounded up some items that you will definitely use, because, let's be honest, you won't wear half of what you pack.
The Little White Dress
What better way to show off your bronzed legs than a cute little white number? Wear it with sandals during the day, and upgrade it with scrappy sandals and a cute little bag at night.
Dressy Flip Flops
I don't know why this is omitted from everyone's list, but I'll be damned if I leave this out as well. You won't be going to the pool or to tan on the beach and ruin your $600 sandals, so make sure you pack a pair of flip flops. You don't have to skip style to look good in them, thanks to these cute ones that are sure to flatter your pedicure.
Few things look as good on vacation as ostentatious and blinged out statement earrings, as they compliment your skin juuuust the right way. Silver, gold, red, blue? Anything goes when you're out of the office.
Silk Slip Dress
There's few things in life that make me as happy as the feeling of my skin post-shower after a long day at the beach and in the salt water. My skin in itself feels luxurious, so adding some silk to the mix instantly elevates your #VacationFeels.
This is your feet's time to shine! This season in fashion has a lot of embellishments such as shells and gems on sandals, which will compliment the blistering sun and make a great insta photo op.
Spaghetti Strap Top
The internet has proclaimed this summer as the #HotGirlSummer, and a spaghetti strap top will highlight all of your best features. I find that shoulders are the most underrated part of a woman, but is one of the most sensual. Embrace your inner and outer hot girl by showing them off.
Not just for vacation, the strappy heel has been literally everywhere. The timeless shoe will tie together your vacay look and steal the show at every dinner.
Teeny Tiny Bag
The only thing that's better than a designer bag is a teeny tiny version of it. Jacquemus started a frenzy, which was only fueled by Fendi's reintroduction of the classic baguette. Tiny bags are all the rage, and they will be a welcome addition to your vacation look, since you don't need to carry anything around except your lipstick anyways.
I very recently burned my scalp, and that is something I really wouldn't recommend to anyone. A hat will instantly elevate your look, and protect your head and face from harmful sun rays.
