can you believe memorial day is only a few short days away?! with summer knocking at our door, it’s time to switch gears. and with a three day weekend at hand, many of us will take advantage and head to the lake, shore, or pool. but what to bring, what to pack? most likely you’ll spend some time by the water, an afternoon barbecue might be on the agenda, and brunch or casual dinner is a given. so here are 5 summer essentials that just might find their way into your suitcase. let’s take a look. but before you do don’t forget to pack sunscreen!
nothing beats the summer heat quite like a dress! simple and chic there’s a variety to choose from. shirt dress to shift dress, long or short, linen to cotton, i’m adding dresses to my wardrobe like crazy.
don’t you love how sneakers go with everything these days? from shorts to skirts to dresses they are the perfect addition to any outfit. for those of us who complain about foot issues, i’m certain you’ll agree that it’s great to see sneakers are on-trend and available in a variety of styles.
when we’re having fun in the sun it’s nice to add a hat as extra protection against the sun. plus, they spice up any old outfit in no time flat.
like it or not, swimsuit season has arrived. but let me assure you there is swimwear for every shape. and who wants to miss out on a leisurely afternoon spent on the beach? last summer i wore a colorful striped suit by ralph lauren. this year, i’m adding another swimsuit to my repertoire. here’s what’s on my wish list.
half the fun of donning a swimsuit is covering it back up! plus, if you ever need to traipse through the hotel lobby to get to the pool or beach you might as well do it in style. a black pareo is a safe bet and ever-so-versatile. but there are soooo many other choices. this year, a gauze tunic might find it’s way home with me.
