There’s nothing quite like a summer spent by the water. And packing can be stressful! It’s the last thing you need to think about before summer vacation! To keep your head above water when it comes to packing, we’ve gathered a few looks to put your mind at ease so you can float on to your destination. We think the easiest, breeziest travel essential for summer by the sea is a light weight dress or two (or three!). Dresses are super easy to pack and take up very little space in your suitcase. They provide you with instant style and minimal effort. Below are our favorite summer dresses to make you feel sophisticated and carefree while on your next vacation.
Dinner by the Sea
Nothing is quite as romantic as a dinner for two with an ocean view. Keep the romance afloat in this stunning look by Marie Oliver. This tonal print is perfect for a date night by the water! Pair it with a pop of color in the form of your handbag and add a neutral earth-toned heel. Complete the look with these of-the-moment hoops from our newest jewelry vendor Rahya!
Exploring a new city this summer? How about one by the water? A wrap dress will be your best friend because it will take you sightseeing and be equally perfect for throwing on over your swimsuit. If you will be walking on cobblestone streets do your feet a favor: opt for a leather sandal with a sturdy bottom to keep you moving all day by the water. Of course no outfit is complete without the perfect handbag and a limoncello!
