The biggest mistake I have made time and time again is not packing correctly for sight-seeing in big cities. You get caught up in wanting to look chic, all the while forgetting that you are going to be running to catch the subway, hailing cabs, and walking all over the place. Not to mention that city life in the summer is typically hot, sweaty, and dare I say stinky? Yep. So more than ever, comfort should be your number one priority. But don't worry, I won't let you sacrifice style for comfort.
Above is a look you can feel comfortable in while walking 15 blocks (maybe you are lost, maybe you aren't), or sipping champagne on top of the Empire State Building. This look also features some travel size beauty essentials to keep your look fresh from day to night.
Packing for the beach is much more simple, right? It seems like all you really need is a bathing suit, some sunscreen, and a towel.
Not exactly. One thing I have learned from the relaxing beach vacation is that you want to bring a few items that could easily transition from the beach to a dinner without much hassle. And just like before, you don't want to sacrifice style to accomplish this versatility.
This simple striped dress is perfect for throwing on over your suit, and the pop of red will class up your look. Use surf spray and a great BB cream as a quick beauty routine.
Now on to conquer your dreamy summer vacation in style!
