Dressing for your summer vacation is usually pretty simple — the less clothes the better! But what do you wear on vacations that are a little less glamorous than getting fed grapes in an exotic local? Whether you’re spending time with your kids or going somewhere extra touristy, I’ve got three looks that will have you stylin’ on your summer vacation!
To a theme park
Taking the kids to Anaheim, CA this summer? Get ready for a nonstop day full of rides, walking and churros! Show off your inner kid with this Patterson J. Kincaid Dumbo baseball tee ($83). Pair it with these casual D&G Cayenne red shorts ($117) and resist putting on your old running shoes and switch it up witih these super stylish BCBGeneration Dashi flats ($89). Keep an eye on show times with this smoke and rose Fossil watch ($95). And stow this Garnier beauty balm ($13) in your purse so you can quickly touch up your skin after hitting Splash Mountain!
To a family reunion
Family reunions can be a bore! (Unless you and your uncle are the reigning three-legged race champions getting ready to defend your title…) If you’d rather be anywhere else but there, keep your mood cheery with these Alice + Olivia floral skinny jeans ($198). Paired with this flowy Backstage carrie top ($121), you’ll be ready to take on whatever the day brings. For a sentimental touch, I recommend this family tree necklace from Etsy seller YouCanQuoteMeOnThat ($40). And don’t forget to keep your face pretty too with these handy and easy-to-use NYX blush sticks ($6) — one of my must-have beauty products!
On a cruise
Yes cruises can be fun in the exotic sun, and all itsy bitsy swimsuits and rum drinks. But, sometimes they can also feel quite touristy. Throw away your Hawaiian shirt and switch it out for this tropical Bisou Bisou romper ($25). Keep your hair protected from the sun, surf and humidity with this Alterna Bamboo fade-proof fluide ($24), and tie it back with these AE hair ties ($10 for set) for a fuss-free look. Then slip on these Marc by Marc Jacobs platforms ($169) and you’re ready to roam the deck!
