Summer Vacation Packing Musts: The Great Outdoors

by Jul 3, 2015blog, Uncategorized0 comments

My next and final location in helping you pack for your summer travels is one a little more adventurous and always the hardest to pack for: the great outdoors. Whether you’re hiking a mountain or exploring the beautiful great lakes, there are plenty of options to look stylish and sporty all at the same time.


If you’re the sporty girl who likes to be daring in the water while on your travels, paddle boarding, wake boarding, or even surfing, try this rash guard tank with its paired bottom. Its vibrant pattern will keep you looking sporty yet chic throughout your adventures.

If you’re more the tennis type of girl, these printed skorts designed by the Williams sisters are a great find. They are perfect for playing a match and going straight to lunch afterwards as their unique pattern gives them the look of a daytime skirt.

For the mountain girl who loves exploring, finding cute but practical clothes can be extremely difficult. Luckily, I found some stylish yet functional options that will keep you looking and feeling good no matter how many miles you hike.

This white pullover paired with these cinched hiking pants from Athleta are perfect for hiking in cooler climates. The long sleeves yet loose fit of the shirt will keep you at the perfect temperature while the cinch of the hiking pants allows for a more polished look than your average hiking gear.

Meanwhile, these Hard Tail tie die printed shorts work well for climbing in warmer weather. While purely stylish, their short length also allows for functional workout gear that will keep you looking fashionable along the trails.

Try pairing them with a solid colored tank from Zella available at Nordstrom. The loose fit and light fabric will keep you cool throughout your adventures.

These neutral toned jogger pants also from Athleta are a must have. Made from recycled material, these pants are light and comfortable while their jersey lining gives them a polished look to double for nighttime wear. They are perfect for being athletic during the day then wearing to a casual night out for dinner and drinks.

Pair them with this cut-off shirt from Pam & Gela which will bring the outfit together giving it a casual yet finished look.

Last but not least, pair any of these outfits with fun but functional tennis shoes like these from New Balance that have great support but are lined with a vibrant color to complete the look.
