With Summer in full swing, I’ve been seeing everyone’s fabulous vacations on Instagram left and right. I myself I won’t be taking a summer vacation given that I’m not making much money right now as a full-time blogger, but it’s all good because doing what I love everyday is better than taking a temporary vacation in my mind. For those of you lucky souls who do have vacation plans coming up, I’ve put together a casual summer outfit that is comfy and chic, and perfect for a summer vacation. Read on to see my tips and essentials for what to wear on vacation.

What to Wear on Vacation: The Essentials

  • A Comfy Top that Goes with Everything: This striped print top with ruffle details from Romwe is the perfect top to pack on Summer vacation. Whether you’re in the city or somewhere tropical, this top works with just about anything, and the details make it not so basic. The best part is that it’s only $12, which you would never be able to tell as it’s pretty good quality and super cute. So this is a great piece for your next vacation as it won’t break the bank.
  • A Pair of Cute Shorts: For an active vacation where you’ll be sightseeing and doing a lot of walking, a pair of cute shorts is a great alternative to a skirt. For something a littler dressier, choose shorts in a cotton or linen material rather than denim, and look for special details like a scalloped pocket or unique color. I love a high-waisted fit because it goes with both shorter and longer tops, and looks great with a bikini top as well.
  • Slip-On Sneakers to be Dressed Up or Dressed Down: Sneakers are essential for any vacation, but I’m not talking about your smelly gym sneaker. Choose a pair of slip-on sneakers to add polish to a casual summer outfit, like the white pair I’m wearing with embellished details. Slip-ons are great because they go with dresses, skirts, and shorts, so essentially they can work with almost any look.
  • A Straw Hat: No summer vacation is complete without a straw hat, which acts as both sun coverage and a cute accessory. The one I’m wearing is from Brooklyn Hat Company, and I love the aztec print rim which gives it an extra pop.

For the rest of my outfit, I accessorized with my favorite new mini bucket bag from Deux Lux. How cute is the fringe detail, striped print, and gold chain?! I’m obsessed and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. I also chose fun pom pom earrings from Charming Charlie, and completed with outfit with colorful bracelets and silver rings. I’m loving the relaxed vibe of this look and how comfortable it is, this is totally an outfit I can live in all Summer long!
