Everything You Need For A Summer Weekend

On June 16, 2014, in Featured Merchants, Spotlight, by mprotonotariou

If you love the sea like I do, you have probably already planned your first beach getaway! There’s nothing more relaxing than a welcoming sandy beach away from the office and stress. Fun moments under the sun with friends, cool drinks and the summery smell of sunscreen, it all calls out for vacations! And though vacations may seem far away, weekend beach getaways are an ideal alternative to the real thing. I call those weekends rejuvenating anti-stress shots as they are my epitome of pure beauty and relaxation. All you really need are a few flattering outfits that build confidence, and a big smile! I’m sure us ladies have no shortage of summer clothing, however, if you manage to pick 4-5 essential pieces that fit into a small weekender bag, then you’re all set for the summer. Think hard about those staple pieces you just can’t seem to put down, narrow your list down to five, and you’ll be ready for the weekend adventure of your dreams! Added bonus: your significant other will love not having to drag along a complete luggage set! If choosing the right outfits seems like a marathon, here are some useful suggestions for summer essentials, the weekend edition:

Anne Cole Signature Twist-Front Swim DressNo 1: The Essential Swimsuit

There’s a reason for this more-than-essential piece always finding its way to the top of every summer list. And this reason is obvious: where else would you rather spend a sunny summer day if not in the water? Beaches and pools are the definition of vacation (even if it’s a mini-vacation), so if you can’t decide what to pack, forget about the thousands of combinations running through your mind and invest in beach clothing; you’ll thank me later. Choose a flattering design that is also sexy like the Anne Cole Signature Twist-Front Swim Dress. You’ll likely be wearing your swimsuit all day so you can’t compromise and go for something less than perfect. This swimsuit from Torrid and Anne Cole features a removable halter strap, internal boning support on the bust, and a built-in bikini bottom. Go for a timeless color that goes with everything, and take advantage of an exclusive 10% Off Torrid Coupon Code, applicable to any Torrid purchase!

Mitered Striped Maxi Dress

No 2: The Maxi Dress

Nothing says “effortless” quite like a maxi knit dress. Forget about clothing combinations that trouble you, and get fully dressed at once. I would go for stripes and patterns, paired with statement necklaces to top off your look. Mimic the sea with dresses in blue tones, like the navy and teal Mitered Striped Maxi Dress. I’m absolutely in love with this dress’s color combination and design, plus its diagonal stripes are very flattering. More good news: you can buy another maxi dress for half off when using the BOGO 50% Off Torrid Coupon Code at Couponology.

T-Strap Sandals (Wide Width)No 3: Flat Sandals

A good pair of flat sandals will be your summer companion from morning to night, through beaches, boardwalks, parks, and parties, so it’s important to find a pair that goes with every outfit you pack into your weekender bag. If I were in your shoes (literally), I would pick a neutral pair like the T-Strap Sandals by Torrid featuring a gold tone snake print for extra sparkle! Metal shades are hot for this summer but are still neutral enough to work with all your summery colors and patterns. 

Off-The-Shoulder TeeDon’t forget the $6 Torrid Flat Rate Shipping Coupon to make your weekend getaway just a bit more convenient!

No 4: Tops & Shorts

As for summer shorts, I prefer them darker in color and knee-high. Extra points if your shorts have a high waistband that gives a more comfortable fit; for example, if they look like the Torrid White Label Curvy Bermuda Short. This full-coverage short is a casual American style that is made to fit your curves like a glove! Combine it with the Off-The-Shoulder Tee in an eye-catching color like the candy apple and you’re all set for an unforgettable weekend!

There you go! Now you have 5 essential pieces to accompany you to a summer weekend getaway to heaven.
