Summer in the city: It sounds nice, but the reality is that this time of year is when most women make their escape. New York, London, or L.A., it doesn't matter, everyone's decamping for slightly more exotic locales, indulging in warm weather and a little R&R. But even if they're headed for more relaxed destinations, you can bet that these stylish women are bringing their fashion A-game to the beach.

Below, she's highlighting the seven key vacation pieces her trendsetting crew brought along (and mentioned a few things to consider leaving behind, too). Armed with von der Goltz's advice (and some major outfit inspiration), you'll be all set for your next beach trip too. Check it all out below.
