Summer is nothing if not full of surprises.  With that in mind, I say let's plan accordingly.  Today's post is dedicated to just that with all the pretty and practical things any summer getaway would need.

Remembering that baggage real estate is at a premium so most if not all your items to tote must do double duty while on holiday.  Mix and match pieces along with dress me up and dress it down pieces are what will get you through in style every single time.  Cute little dresses can work as a beach coverup by day or work as a dinner and drinks frock by night.

Denim shorts can take a beach walk over your bikini or pair with a pretty floral top and sandals for sightseeing in town.  Bateau neck stripes are always a summer standout and look perfectly preppy with shorts and trainers as well as effortlessly casual with a floaty maxi skirt.

Standard accessories aka sunglasses, sailor knot earrings, ponytail holders and Birkies round out the rest of the vacation must-haves that will make it an easy-to-pack for moment.  

What are your getaway go-tos?  Hope everyone is enjoying a great week!
