Travel: August Vacation Packing List

There is nothing we don't love about Summer. Even 100-degree weather can't get us down. Our favorite part of Summer, obviously, is August vacations. Before checking out, it's always nice to pick up some fun pieces of fashion regardless of where you plan to unwind.

Something new is always fun regardless of if basking in the infinity pool of Hotel du Cap, dancing on tables at Scorpios, in Mykonos, or just slipping into flip-flops for lunch at Duryea's. Right now there are some great sales on beachwear, which usually runs on a markdown schedule a little bit different than the rest of fashion.

 Over this way, we found a this Onia two-piece bathing suit that's $66 per piece from $95, the perfect Zimmerman beach mini-dress is $170 from $425 and this Etro ruffled dress is perfect for table dancing or yachting and is $240 from nearly $1200. We found these Chloe sandals for $220 from $845.

Not everything you pack needs to be Haute. Asos is perfect for shopping for casual and inexpensive beach pieces. Here is a Chevron print romper (a la Missoni) for just $45, a belted beach shirt is $38, and we love this animal print ensemble that's even great for after the beach or for a walk into town.

Don't forget about accessories and jewelry. Bauble Bar is our favorite secret for inexpensive look-great jewelry. We are in love with these customizable bracelet stacks that are $35 and these rainbow huggie earrings are $38. Don't forget about Roxanne Assouline, this bracelet stack is about $140 from $375.

While everyone is making a spectacle-wearing oversized floppy straw hats, go with something more tailored and demure. Here is a Eugenia Kim hat that's just about perfect. Don't forget to keep an eye out for Bottega Veneta's newest sandals. They are a safe bet for now and later.

An August vacation is a great excuse to take advantage of sale season. It's also fun to have a few new pieces for an upcoming trip plus you can "apply" them to your fall and winter Caribbean vacations.
