Vacation Style: Summer Cruise

Now that we’ve covered the nitty gritty of how to pack for your trip, I plan to tackle five common vacation destinations with specific recommendations for what to bring.  Nothing screams summer like a cruise, so I thought that would be a fun place to start.  Show of hands – how many of you have a oceanic plans this summer?  Sound off in the comments and let us know where you’re headed!  When it comes to packing, there’s nothing I love more than a nautical inspired swimsuit for a cruise, and this one (below) is just too cute!  Pack a breezy dress that transitions from day to night and can double as a coverup for your suit.  For those off ship excursions, try a pair of lightweight culottes – the style is really trending right now and much more flattering than you’d think. Pair with a pretty tank and some chic walkable wedges.  And don’t forget cute flip-flops for running around the ship.  In terms of accessories, grab a summery scarf that will accent any look and be sure to bring a fabulous floppy sun hat.  A straw tote is the perfect bag to cart around on ship or off.  And by all means, wear sunscreen!  If you want to look sun-kissed kissed opt for bronzer versus too much tanning.  I absolutely love this color palette for a cruise, and the items all work together (as mentioned in my first post).
