Great Vacation Pieces

Nothing says summer getaway like a great selection of getaway clothing! I tried to include a versatile collection of pieces that I would try to bring with me. The key to perfecting the art of packing is to pick pieces that you can pair with a number of different items. Bring shorts you can wear during the day with a linen button down, but also wear out with a sparkly top and heels.  Basic tanks work great in the day or at night when paired with a statement necklace and a pair of white jeans. Check it out:

Designer: Jcrew

Price: $29.99

Scarves are the perfect accessory for any tank or  basic t-shirt.  I see this one with a white t-shirt, panama hat (below), jeans and ballet flats.

Spice up your jeans and shorts with this colorful belt. I would wear it with white jeans or shorts and a silky tank.













Found: Old Navy

Price: $15.00

A white linen shirt in the summertime is a must-have piece.  You can wear it with shorts/pants or with jean shorts to the beach. It screams effortless chic. Pair it with the jean shorts below, the coral belt above and the gladiator sandals for a day of wine tasting or sightseeing.

This tank is very basic, but I like the floral detailing. I always bring black tanks with me on vacation because I know I can always fall back on this combo - black tank, jeans, scarf/chunky necklace.

I have a thing for stripes and love pairing them with jeans. I prefer this one in a gray color and would love it with white jeans and a colorful belt.

I always bring slouchy shirts with me everywhere I go back because like the black tank, they can be paired with loud accessories and made into a great outfit.

 Like white jeans, white shorts a must right now.  White shorts like these can be dressed up or down. I'd love them with a sparkly top for night or a basic button down shirt for the day.

This floral tank would look so pretty with white jeans or shorts. Its effortless and cheap.  Wear this tank with wedges and you have a great outfit for an outdoor dinner. I also think it would pair well with a colorful cardigan (orange one below).

These are a chic and cheap pair of jeans that every girl needs right now. White matches everything and looks great with flats or heels. These jeans would look great with any of the tops I posted. I love them with a basic tank, chunky statement necklace, the motorcycle jacket, and a ballet flat.

I have been searching for a perfect white suit and I think this one has all the essentials. Its basic and the bandeau top will help you get rid of any tan lines.

I love the vibrant color of this suit that isn't too over the top. The top has cups and the bottoms are not too skimpy.

This is a SILK motorcycle jacket. The color is a beautiful blush. This is such a delicate and light weight jacket and I am lusting for it big time. This would be perfect paired with a tank and jeans or a pretty dress.

I'm not too crazy about this purple color, but I added it because I like it in a white or black color. Its a great lightweight cover up that's perfect to layer over a tank and shorts when it gets a little chilly at night.

Ruffles? check. Cinching at the waist? check.  This black number is perfect for a day at the beach or dressed up with a statement necklace and cardigan or jacket and heels. A LBD (little black dress) like this is a must on a vacation.


Found: Nordstrom

Designer: House of Harlow

Nicole Richie's line House of Harlow has a bunch of great necklaces, but this style has gotten the most press. I think its fabulous and I'd wear it with tanks, tees, and dresses. I love the forest green, lime green and orange colors here.

I saw these necklaces in the Nordstrom catalogue and I loved them. They come in an assortment of pretty colors and are also affordable. I love the little charms that come with the rocks.

I really love these sandals because of the little wedge. You could wear this shoes during the day with shorts or at night with a dress and still look dressed up.

I love Tory clutches because they come with a detachable strap that transform the clutch into a shoulder bag. The woven look here screams beach theme, but the gold colors dress it up and match everything. This would be the only bag I would take.
