Summer travel is officially in full swing, so packing, unpacking and repacking has been top of mind for us here at Something Navy.
We have a ton of go-to must-pack staples that we make sure to bring along on every single summer trip, like good luggage (obviously), a super sturdy cosmetics bag (no leaks, ever!), sun care, our favorite travel-sized products and a ton of cute outfit options. Check out our complete packing list here to make the most of your upcoming vacay!
We are combining beauty with sun safety, because to us, they are one in the same. You can’t have great skin without a reliable sunscreen and we know you’ve heard us rave about Supergoop before, and it’s for good reason! We are obsessed. We also love Tan Luxe products and Drunk Elephant for more skin-savviness before, during and after your trip. Travel-sized options of our favorite shampoos and conditioners are another must-have for us, so we don’t have to risk going without or worse, end up using products that do not agree with our already harder-to-manage-in-humidity hair!
In order to have a successful trip, you have to at least start out organized. We try to keep all of our travel documents together with backup photocopy of our passport somewhere else, just in case, and love all the travel-friendly cases, pouches and bags we’ve found along the way. (Pro tip: Tumi has really sturdy, long-lasting timeless options). We also know how important it is to pack an extra cosmetics bag with your plane essentials to keep in an easy-to-grab spot in your carryon. And don’t forget to pack an extra bag you don’t mind getting sandy to bring along to the beach!
When it comes to packing, we are big on creating outfits in advance, instead of throwing a bunch of your cutest tops, bottoms and accessories together and seeing what happens when you arrive. We love mixing basics with statement pieces. Also, we are a firm believer in the power of a good pair of Levi’s. We swear by their summer-friendly silhouettes and love how we can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. Don’t forget your hats, sunglasses and fun jewelry to spice it up and add some summer fun to your looks.
