    ​As spring comes to a close, and as summer draws nearer, thoughts of day trips, vacations and at-home adventures will start to surface. Whether you visit Baltimore, Boise, Belgium, or Belize, we want to introduce you to one of our summer essentials: Irene from our Sienna collection. This active-inspired sandal delivers all-day comfort and support for your favorite activities, providing a go-to option for your summer suitcase.

      While we encourage you to pack Irene, we understand that you may need to bring other items, too! Before you pack your bags, check out these summer suitcase essentials.​

      1. Tote Bag: Prepare for lunch dates and beach trips with a canvas tote bag. Make sure your bag is roomy enough to stow away the essentials below!

      2. Sunglasses: Make a statement with a pair of stylish shades. For maximum UV protection, and to reduce glare from morning to evening, pack a polarized pair.
       

      3. Reusable Water Bottle: Stay hydrated on the run with an aluminum or BPA-free water bottle.  Remember to fill up often; your bright, cheery complexion will thank you!

      4. Multipurpose Makeup: Speed up your morning routine—and lighten up your makeup bag—with a 3-in-1 facial product. Many options offer waterproof protection, perfect for the ocean, lake or pool.

      5. Magazines: Take a break from your summer schedule and read a magazine (or two). Grab a title you wouldn’t normally read, find a comfortable chair and start flipping through the pages! 
       
      6. Travel Journal: Uncover your inner-writer and document your adventure from start to finish. Remember to journal every day, even if you only share a few brief memories.

      7. Sunscreen: Keep your skin healthy by packing a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher. Don’t forget to bring a sunscreen spray for your head, too—your hair offers less protection than you think!

      8. Sun Hat: Pack a hat to keep harmful UV rays away from your face and neck. Add a little style to your sun-ready routine with a playful sunhat—or a classic baseball cap.

      9. T-Shirts: Pick out several lightweight, low-key t-shirts for casual adventures. Make sure to include a few neutral options, too—nobody will notice if you wear them twice!

      10. Portable Speaker: Provide the ‘tunes this summer with a portable speaker. From mornings on the porch to afternoons by the pool, your friends and family will enjoy the upbeat vibe.
