The Ultimate Vacation Outfit

If I am being realistic about the contents of my vacation suitcase, I tend to pack practical and simple. Especially when there is limited suitcase space available (hello RyanAir!), it is best to bring items that can be paired with multiple outfits. And of course, light and airy is always key! Warm weather doesn’t have to mean little clothing; In fact, sometimes I wear light pants and tops that keep the sun off my skin while remaining both lose and comfortable.

I am head over heels in love with all the striped pant prints that are emerging for summer, and this pair from SheIn is no exception! With its straightforward cut and monochrome coloring, you could easily wear this statement item with an oversized top, or a bikini top, or a tank top like I have on here, and bam! 3 outfits. Accessories can help keep your outfits from looking the same day-to-day, so try bringing multiple pairs of sunglasses and shoes to mix it up. I topped my outfit with a wide-brimmed hat to keep any harsh sun off my face. <3

It has yet to truly warm up here in the Amsterdam area, so I will have to wait and absorb some sun rays on a later date. Let me know your fun vacation plans in the comments! 🙂

    I tend to pack practical and simple as well. Those pants are something that I would wear on a trip! I love versatile clothes that can be worn different ways when I travel. I found a wrap skirt by angelrox that becomes a kamono, a dress, etc. It can be worn like 20 different ways. It is my favorite piece to bring traveling.
