Summer is here and that means its time to pack your bags and head to the beach… or lake. or somewhere fun! I love a good excuse to add a couple of pieces to my summer wardrobe and vacation is at the top of that ‘good excuse’ list. While this can be a great time to select ‘tropical’ pieces, I try to keep my splurges to the basics (i.e. denim, t-shirts & sundresses) and save on the sassy picks (like a dress covered in palm leaves is totally acceptable, and I would even argue necessary under $100).
TOP PICKS UNDER $100
Sometimes you don’t even need to add anything crazy to your current wardrobe… maybe some fresh accessories will do the trick. This is also a great way to take your normal outfits up a notch on the vacation scale– add a fun pair of bright sandals with your normal denim + white tee combo OR spice up your sundress with some seashell baubles. My favorite trend of the summer is a perfect way to accessorize on vacation (and at home for that matter)– straw handbags like THIS one and THIS and THIS little baby!
ACCESSORIZE IT– HEAD TO TOE
While this is a perfect time to add to your closet, it’s an even better time to add to your beauty routine. I’m pretty fair but I love to have a nice summer glow, so sunless tanning is the way to go for me. This means I stock up on SPF and lather myself in tanning agents post shower– to give the allusion that I got a great tan at the beach that day.
