Every time I have a trip coming up, I find myself in a familiar, albeit ridiculous, pickle of sorts: I want to buy a whole new wardrobe just to take with me and, of course, achieve countless perfect “vacation outfits,” but, unfortunately, my finite closet space and self-imposed attempt at rationality won’t allow for it.
Eventually, however, I always come to an internal compromise and let myself buy just a couple—okay, maybe a few—vacation-ready pieces instead. If they are affordable, all the better. Can you relate? Do you think I’m crazy? Either way, I think you might enjoy the fruits of my labor in researching what affordable items other fashion girls have been packing as of late. From strappy sandals to swimsuits, there are actually more than a few budget-friendly pieces out there right now that lend themselves rather perfectly to an A+ vacation outfit, and I’m all for it. To see and shop them all for yourself, just keep scrolling.
