What to Pack for a Summer Getaway

Posted on: May 4th, 2015 by Leah No Comments

Whether you’re jet setting this summer or planning a staycation, having the right clothes for your getaway are as important as planning your activities once you arrive at your destination. Great sunglasses, cute swim suits, a good read, camera, and sunscreen are just a few must-have items to pack. But for a stylish summer vacation, you may also want to think about adding a few new on-trend pieces that will take your vacation from boring to fabulous.

Tropical Prints

Believe it or not, Hawaiian shirts and all things tropical are considered hip and on-trend. While enjoying their moment in the sun, these bold botanical prints are appearing in black and white fauna, vintage inspired palm tree prints, and bright tropical hues. Try paring a tropical piece with other neutrals or be bold and wear it from head-to-toe. These kitschy prints will elevate your style in a serious way. Find beautiful on-trend tropical printed dresses starting at $35 at Miss Monroe Boutique located at 81868 Overseas Highway in Islamorada at the Village Square at Trading Post.

Day-to-Night Shorts

When traveling, it’s important to pack versatile pieces that you can easily wear from day-to-night. Not only will this help reduce the amount of luggage you need to take, but it will also give you additional options for your vacation wardrobe. A bright pair of shorts in a fun color or print are perfect for your day activities worn with a tank and a pair of sandals. Wear those same shorts for night by pairing them with a flirty top, bold jewelry and a pair of wedge heels. Day-to-Night shorts are available at D-Luxe Boutique located at 80925 Overseas Highway in Islamorada starting at $15.

Nothing says fabulous like a big and colorful summer hat. Not only will this provide some additional shade for your face and shoulders while lounging poolside, but it will also give your beachside attire a stylish twist. Find a large variety of summer hats at Island Trendz Boutique starting at $45 located within the new Amara Cay Resort in Islamorada at 80001 Overseas Highway.
