If there’s one thing we’ve mastered over the years together, it’s packing like pros for vacation. And when it comes to our weekend summer getaways, we have a lot of fun pulling together the perfect looks for all of the activities we’ll participate in. Recently, we spent time out in the Hamptons and curated four essential looks for Alex to wear–all of which we’ll be sharing with you today. As you’ll see, there are key items to consider to ensure you feel fashionable and put together without overpacking!
Look #1: The Everyday Look
Consider this your travel day outfit; the one you’ll wear while en route to your destination. We love the short and top combo because you can easily mix and match them with other items in your suitcase. We also recommend using your beach bag as your handbag so that you can easily store and access your personal items throughout the drive, flight, or train ride. Not to mention, you won’t have to try squeezing it into your suitcase.
Look #2: The Out to Dinner Look
Having a stylish and feminine dress on hand for a evening of cocktails and dinner is a must. However, this piece can also double as a casual day dress if you wear it with flats. We love the pale pink shade, ruffles, and the crochet pattern. Such a romantic summer piece!
Look #3: The Poolside Look
No beach getaway is complete without a bright swimsuit and playful coverup. We are obsessed with the this yellow bikini which gives your beach look a great pop of color. It pairs perfectly with this white pompom cotton dress that’s great for throwing on for a quick lunch or a pool party.
Look #4: The BBQ/Brunch Uniform
Need a fun and stylish look for brunch or bbq? This top and short duo is just the thing. We love the voluminous sleeves and the sailor striping paired with a classic pair of white denim shorts. It brings just the right touch of movement to a basic summer outfit. Not to mention, you can also easily pair this top with other items in your suitcase.
Overall, we highly recommend pairing your outfits ahead of time so that you know exactly what to wear and when.
