1. Jaclyn Smith Sun Hat $9.99

I'm all about protecting my skin from the sun, so if you see me this Summer, be prepared to see a hat glued to my head.


2. Dream Out Loud Flower Pin Hair Clip $4.49
It’s always good to have a small versatile accessorie that can add some spice and color to your vacation outfits. This flower pin for less than $5 can be used as an embellishment on both the hat and the canvas tote to bring more vibrancy to the items.


3. Toppers Sun Seeker Canvas Tote $11.99
Nothing is more essential than having a classic canvas tote in the summer. You always need that balance between trendy and more simple add-ons, like this bag for $11.99. Whether you’re trotting around this summer on a family vacation or even a picnic in the park, this tote is a great solid piece to have that will last forever!

4. Route 66 Crochet Tank Top $14.99

All of the trendy off the shoulder shirts are great, but when you’re on-the-go sightseeing, everyone needs a cute and useful tank that breathes well and keeps you cool.


5. Sofia by Sofia Vergara Aviator Sunglasses $13.99
You can’t get by during the summer without shades protecting your eyes from the sun. Aviators have a cool edge to them and match the look of just about any outfit.


6 &7. Bongo Juniors Striped Bandeau Bikini Top $14.99 and Bikini Bottom $24.99
The great thing about bikinis is that you can mix and match the tops and bottoms. By packing 2 bikinis, you have the equivalent of 4 different bikinis, depending on how you mix them. This striped print is fun and will never go out of style!


8. Dream Out Loud by Selena Gomez Lace Shorts $14
These shorts are one of my favorite must-haves for the summer. Instead of wearing the same old typical cover-up, these shorts are great to just slip on and slip off by the pool or beach.  Chic AND easy.


9. Bongo Espadrille Sandal $34.99
Floral prints are everywhere these days and these sandals are no exception to the trend. These platforms are mid-height so they’re still comfortable for vacation, for instance when you’re going out for a nice dinner but still craving the comfort of flip flops.  


ARE YOU GOING ON VACATION THIS SUMMER?  WHERE ARE YOU HEADED AND WHAT ESSENTIALS DO YOU STILL NEED?

No vacation for me. Everyone else goes on vacation, and I get stuck at home with extra kids. I can't afford to go on vacation, and it is hard to go on vacation with my motorized wheelchair because it is hard to load/unload in and out of a vehicle.

We are going to PA to see my family and so I can dance with my Grandaddy at my Cousins wedding, I am so excited.  As long as we have clothes, swimsuits, toiletries and sunblock I don't really care what else  makes it.
