Summer Travel Essentials


My favorite Summer travel essentials. You'll want these if you have travel plans this summer!

Every Summer in addition to planning our travel, I like to think about what sorts of items I’d pack for each trip. I know it sounds crazy, but I just love packing, haha. This year is a little different since we’ll be headed to somewhere colder instead of a traditional tropical Summer destination, but I think a couple of these items will work for that trip as well.

1. Cuyana Panama Hat
I love the timeless and simple look of this hat. It’s light enough to wear everywhere but dense enough to keep yourself shaded from the sun’s harsh rays.

2. Oversized Bucket Bag
This just-released bag is a great size for carrying your personal items while you travel, or for having extra room while you do some vacation shopping.

3. Morgan Sunglasses
These beauties are perfectly shaped to flatter any face, and made in California with love! They’ve been on my wishlist for quite some time now.

4. Lightweight Scarf
This lightweight scarf would make the perfect addition to keep yourself warm on a plane, at your destination, or used as a wrap at the beach or pool.

5. Cuyana Travel Wallet
I have to admit, I’ve been lusting after this for awhile now too. I checked it out in person and it’s the perfect size to carry your passports, cash, boarding passes, etc.

6. Jac swimsuit by her.
This simple suit would make an elegant statement at the pool, as well as worn with bottoms as part of an outift. I love items that are versatile.

7. Nude Slides by Everlane
These have been on my mind for the last week or so, and I’ve even had my eye on some others by Ancient Greek Sandals. They’re the perfect Summer shoe, and easy to get on and off through security.

8. Marble Notebook
I have a thing for marble, I think most people do by now. My laptop even has a marble wrap on it. I love this one by Melo & Co.

9. Le Sud Weekender
Roomy enough for all of your weekend getaways and Summer escapes. This would come in handy for my upcoming trip to Sea Ranch.

    1. Hahaha. I like to use a notebook to keep track of what I do on trips so when I type up the posts later I remember everything.

  9. Great picks! I am going to Lake Powell at the end of the month, so I will definitely be packing a swimsuit, a hat, and sunglasses.
