Heading to the beach this summer for a weekend getaway? Like most girls, I always way over pack for a 2 night trip and don’t end up actually wearing half the things in my bag. Which is why I have decided to simplify things. Add in some denim shorts and basic tanks to the essentials and your set!
Sunglasses: An obvious essential for any weekend away! My go to always has been and probably always will be a classic aviator. I think they go with everything and are always flattering. My favorites are the ‘small original aviators’ by Ray-Ban. But there are tons of great options. Click on the photos for more details.
Flip-Flops: The Haviana slims are so comfortable and being rubber you don’t have to worry about them getting ruined by the water. They come in a slew of different colors and are under $30.
Statement Earrings: I understand earrings may seem a little out of left field, but they are a great way to instantly elevate a basic tank and denim shorts. So simple.
Straw Hat: Sometimes the sun can get the best of me, so it’s important to pack a great hat that can shield my face if I need to protect my skin.
Duffle Bag: The ultimate cool girl accessory to hold all your goods. I scooped up my ‘escape’ bag at Forever 21 for under $30 and a few days later saw a designer version that was nearly identical for $300!! Mine has since sold out but here are some other great options.
