43 Affordable Vacation Pieces to Buy When You're Bored

Best affordable vacation shopping



As you know, there are a lot of ways to spend your time when you're bored. Shopping is just one of them, but it can be a valid use of free time if you find items that you need or at least know you'll use. Another valid use of free time is vacation-planning, which is particularly timely right now. You probably have your summer travel plans set at this point (and if you don't, there's still time!), so now is the time to figure out your wardrobe for said trip.

The vast number of vacation-friendly pieces on the internet is overwhelming right now, to say the least, so I narrowed the offerings down to a slightly less-overwhelming 43 cool items that clock in under $100. In case you're staying local this summer, they're great for that too. Prepare your idle fingers to scroll through an excellent assortment of accessories, shoes, denim, swimwear, summer dresses, and more.

Seventies shades are the year's biggest sunglass trend.

The perfect way to try this season's hot-pink trend.

I love the easy fit of these shorts.

Perfect for adding a vintage touch to your look.

Sorry, couldn't resist one more tank top.

Wear it to dinner, and then throw it over your swimsuit the next day.

Two jewelry trends are better than one.
