5 Summer Must-Haves for Your Next Beach Holiday

Summer is here, and holiday season has left me wanting to up my wardrobe game whether that means on the beach or at the airport. After doing some travelling myself, I’ve been inspired to create my own list of the summer must-haves to make your luggage a little more luxury.

Forget the sarongs and over-sized dresses. Hawaiian shirts are the new cover ups as they add a relaxed but feminine vibe to an otherwise standard bikini. Go for a size up or even try going for a men’s Hawaiian shirt so you can easily tie the ends or wear them loose.

Where to buy them: ASOS, TopshopUK and Forever 21

Not the most practical carry on bag, but it’s a cute purse to throw your phone, camera and sunscreen in. The rope-like material gives a tropical feel while still maintaining its leather luxury. This virtually looks good with any outfit whether its a maxi dress or a loose tee with denim shorts.

Where to buy them: TopshopUK, Mango, and Matalan

Hear me out. The days of biker shorts being limited to athletic wear only are a thing of the past. Biker shorts are perfect for the trip to the airport, as you can throw on a loose sweater over a t-shirt while still looking put together. You can continue rocking them with a bum bag during your holiday when you’re going sight-seeing or visiting a museum.

Where to buy them: Urban Outfitters, TopshopUK, and Pretty Little Thing

These bright-coloured headbands are popping up everywhere. They add a fun twist to any outfit, and let’s face it. Our hair can be all kinds of temperamental during the holiday whether that means dealing with constant frizz inducing-weather or 24/7 wet hair. When you run out of your travel-sized bottle of dry shampoo, this headband will come in clutch. You can wear it when you throw your hair in a bun or when your hair is still damp from beaching all day.

Where to buy them: Miss Selfridge, ASOS, and TopshopUK

Pleated skirts were all the rage this spring as they popped up on fashion runways in Paris, London and New York. This summer, they can be versatile and perfect for the day to night outfit. During the day, pair the shirt with a simple graphic tee and converse, and you can transition it to night by exchanging your tee for a black lace crop top and heels.

Where to buy them: ASOS, SHEIN, and Boohoo

Also, here is the fashion from the episode.

Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply Floral Gauze Tiered Tunic worn by Rowan Blanchard on Girl Meets World
Riley’s Blouse

Riley has been wearing a lot of romantic reds this season. She wore this ruffled blouse, which she wore in a preppy way with a cargo capri and converse. In her fantasy, she wore a really pretty red dress with a floral print. The headband added a ethereal feel to her usual preppy outfits.

Riley’s Dress

What I couldn’t find was Maya’s top. I loved her little flannel top with the french braids. Her pants are from Forever 21, but they’re all sold out.

Cotton On Striped Yellow Tank- $5.00

Deb Slouchy Joggers- $10.99

This is an outfit from this weekend in Chinatown. I’ll post later about my trip there, but here is a picture of the comfy outfit I wore during my trip. The tank was soft and cozy to wear all day, and my joggers were also equally comfy. I also loved the pop of color with the yellow.
