It’s almost a month until summer is finally here, but who’s counting? And with the world going back to some sort of normalcy again, travel plans are on the top of everyone’s list. Now that we finally get to go somewhere, let the shopping season begin.

And because we all love a little Amazon shopping spree — where else would we get our travel essentials anyway — I gathered a list with every essential item for your next summer vacation.

So, what’s on the shopping list for your summer vacation?

If you’re anything like me, you’re dying to be next to the ocean or at the very least some place with water. Even if you’re not going to a resort or spa, I’m very certain you’ll be catching some sun next to a lake, river, or a pool.

That is why the number one item on our list is:

1. Bathing Suit

Whether you’re a two-piece kind of gal or a one-piece lover, the choices and the styles are endless.  Here are a few finds to get you inspired for your next vacation or pool party:


2. Flat Sandals & Slides

Summer is also time for your pedicures to shine. It’s hot outside so it’s important to have an easy and versatile flat slide-on sandal that is comfortable but also stylish. I like to go with neutral colors for a calming look. Here are a few of my favorites:


3. White Dress

A white dress is the basic summer look every girl needs in her closet. It’s easy, effortless, and goes with anything.  Make sure to have a few choices between, mini, midi, and max for a variety of occasions.


4. Beach Bag

It makes sense to have a beach bag in your summer wardrobe since the beach is where most people go in the summertime. But you don’t have to be at the beach to rock these cute straw bags. They are light, fun and there are many styles to choose from. Here are some crowd favorites:


5. White sneakers

White sneakers are a great choice for a casual summer look. They complement a sporty look without being too sporty. They go well with dresses, shorts or skirts.


6. Sleeveless Shirts & Tank Tops

When it gets unbearably hot outside, the only option is a tank top or a sleeveless shirt, preferably in a light color, so it’s not absorbing all that heat. Pair with shorts or skirts and you’re good to go. Here are a few options:


7. Skirts

Skirts are comfortable, keep you cool in the hot summer days, and a very versatile piece of wardrobe. They can be worn with flats during the day and with heels at night. Choose a style that flatters your figure. Here are some favorites:


8. Crossbody Bag

Whether is a casual event with family and friends, a night out, or a date, a crossbody bag is the perfect complement to a casual summer look.


9. Ballet Flats

Ballet flats are chic and comfortable and can be worn with jeans, shorts, or dresses.


10. Maxi Dress

When is hot, humid, and sticky, restrictive clothing can be a nightmare. That’s why we love maxi dresses for the summer. They are long, flowy, breezy, comfortable, and chic.


11. Straw Hat

Straw hats are a classic summer look. Protect your skin in style with these Amazon favorites:


12. White Pants

White pants are yet, another summer wardrobe staple, not to mention very chic. You can match it with pretty much anything.


13. Shorts

Whether is denim shorts, white shorts, or biker shorts, you know these are absolutely essential whether you’re hanging out, shopping, or working out.


14. Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a must-have for summer. The key is to protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays, and it doesn’t hurt that they also make you look stylish. Consider adding a new one to your arsenal this summer, since you’ll be using them pretty much every day for at least three months. It’s nice to have a few to choose from, for any occasion.


15. Boho Straw Handle Tote

Totes are a no-brainer, but have you considered a little twist on your everyday bag? Add a Boho chic look for a more fun summer style.


16. Jeans

Whether is blue jeans or white jeans, one thing is certain: jeans are a favorite staple of any woman’s wardrobe.


17. Shirt-Dress

For those days that you don’t feel like putting in too much effort to your outfit, throw in a shirt dress and you’re good to go.
