When packing for a summer holiday, it’s tempting to throw in as much as your luggage will contain and hope for the best.Â However, if you plan strategically, you can make a few great pieces go a long way. If you’re headed to a beach, you’ll want a great t-shirt to put on over your swimsuit, or to wear on grocery jaunts, or even to sleep in. RVCA is the hottest brand right now. People everywhere are getting into this line of clothing influenced by the skate, surf, and graffiti art worlds. This RVCA tee in Blood Orange is $21.00
What’s a summer vacation without a great pair of sandals? These Sam Edelman Ginger Sandals are gladiator sandals featuring faux leather snakeskin and nail head accents. It has a triple buckle closure, textured foot bed, and a zipper at the heel. $74.25 at buckle.com
