Summer Escape

Summer Escape

Summer Friday’s have hit the halfway mark, which means we’ve got a couple months left to take advantage of those 3-day weekends. While getting out of town can be V exciting, it can also be a little daunting when it comes to the packing process. Suddenly your closet doesn’t live up to expectations and none of your outfits are Instagram-worthy. We’ve all been there. But not to fear; you don’t need to go out and buy an entirely new wardrobe. Updating your look can be as simple as swapping out your accessories for new summer staples. Here are our top 5 pieces to help you achieve an A+ vacation outfit, without spending your entire paycheck.



The Nomad Tote is a roomy little cutie that works as an airport carry-all or a mini weekender. Braided handles add a boho feel, while the extra crossbody strap make this bag an easy-to-carry essential. Stay neutral in navy or moss or go bold in rio red to spice up a night out.

How To Wear It:

Pair the navy Nomad Tote with your favorite pair of AG jeans, our clean Annika Flat in Coconut and your favorite tee for a casual travel look that will get you anywhere in style.

This clear Trinity Tote is worthy of sun, sand, and all your beach essentials. A few of our favorites? Supergoop sunscreen, The Big Little Lies novel, Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask, and Drunk Elephant’s lip balm with SPF.

How To Wear It:

This one’s easy and you don’t need much…a simple bathing suit & coverup will do! Go for a flattering bikini and high waisted linen pant to wear to the beach. Sick of your average beach slides? Try the Wesley Espadrilles instead. These chunky canvas espadrilles have a stylish bow and just the right amount of height and are easy to slip off the second you hit the sand. Top off with sleek sunnies and you’re all set for a day of fun in the sun.
