Now that we're well into the summer season, we're feeling breezier and beachier than ever!
From chill barbeques and tropical trips, to relaxing beach days and outdoor concerts, there's an awesome social activity around every corner.
And with all of the spontaneous festivities and weekend fun to be had, we're craving colorful items that are both fashionable and functional. This week's picks are also perfect for packing up for quick getaways and extended vacations alike.
For starters, we are entirely obsessed with a new collection of free-spirited, bohemian-inspired bikinis in pretty patterns designed by two of our favorite fitness enthusiasts.
Katrina Hodgsen and Karena Dawn of Tone It Up inspire us with their cheerful approach to diet and exercise, and embody the perfect California beach babe vibe.
They recently joined forces with Maaji, an amazing swimwear brand based in Colombia, and rolled out their own line of adorable bikinis this week, and we're wild about every single one of them. Bonus: the vibrant styles just so happen to be totally reversible, too. Two suits in one? We consider that a stylish investment!
Not surprisingly, we're always adamant about protecting our skin with all of that sun exposure this season, and nothing beats L'Oreal's convenient oil spray while on vacation. It smells divine and gets the job done in a cinch. Best of all, it's totally affordable for all budgets.
Other travel must-haves from the Trend editors include a playful iPad cover featuring durable construction and quirky imagery; plus hip eyewear from a fun new brand called MADE that reminds us to let loose and experiment with our style as much as possible.
Geek chic? We're totally on board.
And finally, we're also eyeing a posh set of nail decals from NCLA for Shopbop for a fresh take on the traditional manicure. The adorable zip pouch it's packaged in also makes for a cute clutch on the go wherever you wind up!
So take it from us and soak up every second of this fun-loving season. Summer won't last forever, but armed with these chic must-haves, we promise you'll be ready for anything.
