Getaways are in full force this month and it’s time to switch off. We've all fallen for the last-minute panic of vacation binge shopping, but there really is no need to. Less is really more. Say goodbye to your oversized suitcases and from here on out it's about putting more thought into choosing quality pieces to pack in your carry-on. Your wardrobe should work for you and by choosing standout pieces you really love over quantity, you'll find yourself wearing them more. Your wardrobe should work for you and the pieces should become part of your life journey traveling with you to your future getaways. Get inspired by our favorite styles that are always in our carry-ons.
Organic linen, peace silk, hemp, and cotton are our favorite eco-friendly materials perfect for balmy weather. They will become your true hardworking travel essential as they are quick to dry and their textured material is perfect for throwing in your beach bag. You'll never think of ironing while on vacation by choosing these sustainable materials. We love this Savannah Morrow wrap top which was designed from peace silk, bamboo, and hemp. Not only will we be wearing it over our bikini this summer, but also thrown on with loose-fitting trousers or a maxi skirt for the evening. Check out more of our favorite summer styles here.
When it comes to shoes on vacation, you only should be packing a couple of pairs. No one wants to weigh down their suitcase with multiple shoes that end up being worn once or even worse not at all. Choose styles that will work on the beach and out for dinner and cocktails. Think easy lace-ups and gladiators which are reining this summer. We will be styling our neutral dresses and matching separates with this Hereu style for a pop of color.
It's completely fine to have pieces that you only wear on vacation, but there's really no need to re-buy every time you get away. I love the idea of my favorite pieces being part of my life exploration story. I've owned a pair of black Ancient Greek Sandals for about 4 years and they have been my go-to shoe on every hot weather getaway since. They've traveled with me through Hawaii, Portugal, Tulum, Mexico City, and Palm Springs and they still look amazing. -Toni Lessler Mills, CoFounder
No trip is complete without a dress that makes you feel like a greek goddess. If we aren't floating down the beach then we don't want it! We can't wait to show off our golden skin (which will be slathered in SPF!) with this gorgeous Anna Quan dress that we'll be wearing again and again. The perfect standout dress does wonders to your wardrobe and your state of mind so choose one that makes you smile and you'll end up wearing it for every wedding or occasion once your back home.
