Summer Vacation Must-Haves


If a vacation is on your horizon this summer (lucky!), you’re probably knee-deep in planning out your itinerary, double checking reservations and going over every possible “this-can’t-be-happening” scenario in your head. Right? And the last item on that to-do list is usually packing. You’ll pack up the kids, remembering his favorite shirt and a hair bow to match each of her outfits. And then you’ll arrive at your destination only to find that you packed your husband plenty of shirts but exactly zero bottoms and the only shoes you have are the ones on your feet. Sound about right? So, whether you’ll be enjoying your feet in the sand or getting lost in the side streets of a new city, we’ve put together a list of his and hers must-haves to make sure you’ll have an amazing vacation – no matter the destination.

For the Beach Bums

Beach Bum

Show off those stems in a great-fitting pair of shorts. We suggest you pick a pattern with a pop of pink like our Natural Fit Shorts. They will make you feel as confident as you look. And no beach trip is complete with out the perfect neutral sandal, straw hat and a striped tote for all those sunny essentials.

Stroll through town or enjoy a round of golf in the Wyoming Cargo Short. Don’t forget to shield your face from the sun’s harsh rays in a pair of aviator sunglasses and straw hat. Neutral leather sandals and a classic polo shirt are perfect additions to this itinerary-friendly outfit.

For the City Slickers

Discovering a new city is exhausting, so a comfortable wardrobe is a must! The Easy Fit Capris are stylish, comfortable and flattering and pairs great with everything from chambray to stripes. Slip on a pair of leather flats, sunglasses and a chic cross body bag and you’re ready for any adventure.

Touring a new city sometimes means you’ll leave your hotel in the morning and not come back until well past dinner. These Flat Front Shorts have simple styling that makes them ideal for day and night.  Wear them with a stylish pair of walking shoes and keep your day’s necessities handy in a backpack.  Keep your body and skin hydrated with a water bottle and face moisturizer with SPF.
