Summer Packing: What I Can't Leave Without

May 20, 2015

I have never been the best at packing for trips – typically, I bring everything but the kitchen sink! A girl needs her options, right? I may not be the best packer but I do know a couple of items I cannot live without when traveling during summer. These are the items I swear by no matter the location!

The chambray shirt. I cannot live without a chambray shirt. Think about the versatility! Whether you dress it down with a cute pair of shorts, wear it as a cover-up over your swimsuit, or dress it up with a chic skirt, a chambray shirt has your back (literally) and can eliminate bringing excess clothing you’ll never wear.

Cute printed pants, shorts or skirts. Prints are always in style and are perfect for summer traveling. I prefer stripes personally, but there are also so many great floral options out there!

EOS Shave cream & lip balm – I have used EOS shaving cream for years and swear by it! Nothing makes my legs soft like EOS. I gladly make room for it in my toiletries bag – totally worth it in the leg baring months.

A versatile pair of flats other than my sandals. Right now I’m really into espadrilles and I love to shake things up and give my usual gladiators a break. Plus, espadrilles are generally light and cool so you won’t be uncomfortably hot.

A neutral statement necklace and two dainty gold necklaces. I have been known to over pack o jewelry in the past, which is the worst because it’s so heavy! I recently reevaluated and realized that if I just bring one neutral statement necklace and a few gold dainty necklaces/bracelets, I’m good to go no matter what I wear. And that leaves me extra pounds in that suitcase!

A cool towel. To be completely honest, this is just for photos. But it’s fun to have your own towel to lie on and take pictures with. It doesn’t take up too much space, either! Plus, you never know when you’ll need an extra towel.

The straw hat. This is a big must! Not only will a great straw hat protect you, it brings the chic to any outfit. Mix and match with every outfit – that’s my motto! I love this one by Lack of Color. They make the best hats that won’t break the bank.


  1. Your summer must-haves for packing is almost identical to mine. Love these espadrilles!
