With summer jobs, classes, and internships taking up our summer hours, it can be hard to enjoy summer vacation like we did in high school. For some of us, this summer might be our last break before we enter the real world. Yikes.

That’s why I say you should make the most of summer 2018 and start crossing things off your summer bucket list. Here are three outfit ideas for my top three favorite summertime activities. 

Outfit #1 – Beach Day  

It doesn’t get more simple — or classic — than a swimsuit and a cover-up. 

I’ve been obsessed with the swim brand 9.0 Swim (sold on Beginning Boutique). Their swimsuits come in so many different colors and styles, and every suit I’ve gotten so far has been so flattering.

If I’m wearing a solid-colored suit, I like to throw on a bold-printed cover-up to stand out against my suit. Pull on a sun hat to protect your face from the rays, and you’re ready for a beach day.

Outfit #2 – Road Trip

Being comfortable on a road trip goes a long way. In fact, I’d consider it an essential part of having a good road trip experience.

I like to keep it easy and simple with a pair of straight leg jeans, an oversized thermal top, and sandals. Since this outfit is so casual, I like to layer on the accessories (not shown) for some eye-catching detail.

Outfit #3 – Bonfire

Who doesn’t love good company, a night of stargazing, and s’mores over a campfire? 

On those chilly nights, layering is key to keeping warm and looking cute. Oversized flannels and henleys are my go-to. The thick and soft fabrics will make sure to keep you warm and comfortable all night long. 

I like to opt for boots when I go to bonfires. You never know how muddy, dirty, or dusty the area might be, so save yourself the trouble of ruining your favorite pair of shoes.

  1. I love this article so much that I remember it and keep coming back to it a year later! But looking at it now, the pictures have changed- it looks like the article now shows outfits that don’t correctly reflect the links to the items, nor the looks described here. Was the article misrendered? I know most of these items would be out of stock today, but I wish this article was still available with the original looks- I was totally in love with them and still want to recreate them a year later!!!

    • Hi AB, thanks for commenting and for pointing this out. You’ve noticed something we’re working on fixing — when we migrated to our new server, some of our images in old posts got overwritten. I’ve been going through fixing them since March, but it requires me to manually find the posts with missing images and re-upload the old ones (takes forever). I’ve fixed the outfit sets here though! Let me know if you notice any others across the site. I appreciate it!
