Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.
Apparently, I'm the only one who didn't get the memo that Hawaii is where it's at this summer. I swear every time I open my phone and hit the 'gram, I see another friend or friend of a friend off on some magical beach getaway just having a grand old time. To no one's surprise, I have FOMO. Major FOMO. So to ease the pain, I decided to create the ultimate shopping list for my imaginary getaway. That's right. Who really needs a fancy trip planned to stock up on summer essentials? (The answer is no one.) From bikinis and beach pillows (seriously, they're a thing!) to beauty products and hats, here are 30 of the best fashion and beauty items I could find that I'd 100% bring on a summer trip that I have yet to plan.
I can never have too many LBDs.
These cutoffs will pair well with any summery top–and-sandal combo (or the swimsuit above).
Small in size, big in personality.
I love double-duty beauty products, especially when I travel. This moisturizer will not only keep my skin feeling fresh, but it'll also protect me from the sun with SPF 30.
The skirt that's bringing Hawaii to me.
The bubblegum pink does it for me.
This creamy stick formula can be used on cheeks, lips, and eyes.
I'd wear this to the beach or around my shoulders at night if it was chilly.
From the puff sleeves to the ruched bodice, this dress is chic with a capital C. (and would look great with a pair of lace-up sandals).
Ideal for vacation skin, this can be worn on its own or mixed with face makeup for a serious lit-from-within glow.
Chunky platform sandals are the It shoes of summer.
A chunky gold ring that'll look just as good styled at home as it does on vacation.
The color. That is all.
The embroidery on this is darling.
Whether I'm home or out of town, I love pampering myself. This headband helps me do just that by keeping my hair tucked away neatly so I can apply my skin products in peace, aka without my hair getting stuck to my face.
Cutouts are the detail of the season.
The perfect layering necklace, no?
White sneakers are my go-to travel shoes.
The only cooler you'd ever see me carrying.
