How to Pack for Your Last Fling of Summer

You may not want to believe it, but summer will actually end. We’re watching August barreling down on us with more than a bit of confusion: wasn’t it JUST April? Didn’t we say this would be the summer we finally learned how to kayak? You mean I only have one more month of rosé?

That’s why we’re advocating one last summer fling. Since today just so happens to be National Girlfriends Day, make it a squad trip. Grab your best ladies and find the closest AirBnB near a body of water. We make travel way more complicated than it needs to be: often, the best trips are the spontaneous ones.

Once you’ve sorted the when and where, packing should be easy — but sometimes, there’s nothing more frightening than an empty suitcase. Looking for an simple summer packing recipe? We’ve got it. Read on to find out how to make the most of your final fling.

  • Pack light! This isn’t Vegas (unless it is Vegas, in which case - go wild!), so you don’t need a new pair of shoes for every outfit. Stick to a small bag for short trips to make sure you only bring what you need. What's the best carry-on suitcase? We love the versatile weekend bags from Everlane and the shiny rollies from Away that come with a built-in charging station. 
  • Remember that cut-offs go with everything. Not feeling shorts? A pair of elastic waist light linen pants are a great go-to. Linen travels beautifully: any wrinkles just make it look more authentic.
  • Comfortable, invisible underwear are key to getting dressed without the stress. Our new Get Outside kit has everything you need for a summer weekend spent outside. The Evolution Bra doubles as a back-up bathing suit top, and our Longevity can be worn on its own as a cute crop with leggings. Comfy and versatile? Get it.
  • One summer dress can do the work of 10 if you have the right accessories. We’ve been living in the super soft cotton and bamboo cuts from Canadian designer Hoi Bo - they travel well, go with everything, and nail the “effortless” look.

Throw in a good book and a pool floaty, and you're ready to bid farewell to summer in easy style.
