It’s never too early to start planning for your summer vacation, right? Especially when you look out of the window, see grey skies, and find yourself distracted by dreams of sunshine. So what should you take with you on your summer break? One important item is your sunglasses. They’re only small, so easily forgotten but, at the same time, easy to stash away in your luggage. Go for a big pair that will protect your eyes from the glare as well as the sun.
You should also make sure to take a selection of T-shirts with you. Tees are great for use as cover-ups on the beach if you can feel yourself burning in the sun, as well as being useful if you’re heading off to a bar or restaurant. Take a selection of colors with you so you can mix and match your outfits, but be careful not to wear anything that clashes with the amazing tan you’re sure to get. Go with loose, breathable fabrics like cotton to stay cool.
To go with your great selection of tees, make sure you take a few pairs of board shorts on your vacation. These are fantastic as they can double up as bathing shorts, saving space in your luggage. They’re also great for going out on day trips or for a casual, laidback beach look. Go for a longer length down to your knee if possible. They also fold up small and are made from breathable fabric, making them ideal for summer vacations.
Don’t forget to take a couple of pairs of shoes with you on vacation either, although you don’t need too many or else they won’t fit in your luggage. A pair of sturdy sandals will be really good if you’re planning to walk any distance, and they’re breathable and cool enough that your feet won’t be too hot. Flip flops are also a great choice for lounging around on the beach or doing some casual exploring. They don’t take up much room either, making them ideal for a vacation.
Another item you should take with you is a long-sleeve casual shirt. More than one can be a good idea, especially if you have fair skin that needs to be protected from the sun. It’s always an idea to have something to cover your shoulders and choosing a light color such as white or pale blue will help to reflect the sun and keep you cool, even when wearing long sleeves. These shirts will also be great if you find yourself out for a formal meal.
