There's just something about the way the summer season makes you feel that I love so much. Autumn will always be my favorite in the way that it is almost this wise best friend you only see once a year who really helps put life into perspective… But Summer, Summer is like a fling gone wild. Every new day the allure of it all makes you fall more madly in love. Maybe it is thanks to all the unending adventure, the sun-kissed skin, the fresh delicious fruit and the sense of community as every one forgets the normal mundane boundaries as they strip to their skivvies to escape the heat. Despite the holiday weekend being over there are still two wild months of warm summer fling left which leaves plenty of time to get away! I, myself, am leaving for a little road trip with my fiancé tomorrow and with my mind distracted on packing I thought how does a modern woman pack while still leaving plenty of room for adventure in her bag? So here I've narrowed down some of my favorite traveling essentials that are multi-purposeful and won't weigh your luggage down! 1. A breezy cotton maxi that easily goes from site seeing to dinner without a wrinkle: Hadley dress- Reformation  2. The classic swimsuit but with a modern twist: The Anne Marie- Solid And Striped 3. Obviously you're going to need to put your essentials in something so I chose this weekender from Madewell. Their totes are nice, durable leather without the gouging price tag: The Transport Weekender- Madewell 4. A Towel that can have multiple purposes whether you sneak off to the beach or go out for a quick picnic: Tasseled Lagoon Towel- Anthropologie 5. The perfect summer sandal that can be quickly washed if it gets dirty: Isabel Slide- Need Supply 6. Use it as a skirt or a bathing suit cover up either way it looks adorable when eating ice cream: The Lia Skirt- Reformation 7. Whether you're staying in a hotel, hostel, or tent sometimes washing your hair just isn't a priority so to keep the oil at bay and have that wind swept beach look by trying a nice sea salt spray: Citrus & Ginger Sea Salt Spray- Cold Spring Apothecary 8. They protect your eyes and they're great to flirt with: Flowers in Brindle Tortoise- Raen 9. Because who doesn't love a jumpsuit? It's easier to pack and breathes better than denim: Hacienda Jumpsuit- Lou & Grey 10. Keep the fling alive by always having the perfect scent: Mermaid No. 1 Perfume Spray- Mermaid
