Shop until you drop... into a beach chair!

Woman with suitcase

In keeping with the travel theme for the summer, I decided to put together a list of what you should definitely pack with you when you're traveling with your man.

No, I don't mean sex toys this time. I mean sexy summer accessories that will make your beau lust for your hot bod!

The Eliza Wedge by Michael KorsSexy wedges

It's not just in Miami that you see hot chicks wearing high heels with their bathing suits. Nope, that trend is a standard for styling women, as the high heel elongates even the shortest of legs. Before you head out to the pool or the beach with your man, think twice about putting on those flip flops.

The Eliza Wedge by Michael Kors features specchio leather and comes in either gold or purple-silver. Available at Neiman Marcus for $245.

Victoria's Secret Crochet Tank DressBeach cover-up

It's not enough just to wear a sexy bikini -- it's what's on the outside that counts. Pairing your exposing suit with an inviting cover-up springs your man's imagination (and a man with a wandering eye!).

From their Beach Sexy collection, the Victoria's Secret Crochet Tank Dress shows off your sunkissed skin. Available for $48.

No Show Active Top!Exercise accessories

Even if you're on vacation, you don't want to give up the opportunity to exercise! For some women, playing beach volleyball or throwing around a Frisbee can prove to be difficult (or chancy!) for fear of our boobs popping out. So what's the solution? Try No Show Active Top! The swim top cover-up provides coverage and support like a sports bra and is fashionable! Now you can be sexy and sporty!

Henri Bendel's Wet Bikini BagProtect your stuff

With Henri Bendel's Wet Bikini Bag, you can store damp and sandy swimsuits to help you protect your other possessions packed away. This chic and stylish little bag has a terrycloth exterior and a waterproof interior.


The sexiest item to pack is youth in a bottle. Protecting your skin from damaging UV rays with sunscreen is a no-brainer and something that's been beaten into our brains since Baz Luhrmann sang the tune. Pack your sunscreens!
