Buying Days: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday
Planning a little Summer rendez-vous? Well whether you're headed out of town or sticking to a staycation, we've got your summer packing essentials right here! The key: versatility. Make your clothing and accessories work double duty so that you'll never find yourself in a bind on what to wear. 

#1: The Perfect Sun Dress 

We suggest opting for something that can be chucked in a bag, thrown over a bathing suit, and then paired with a statement accessory to give the perfect amount of day-to-night ease and flexibility. Swingy, A-Line shapes work beautifully for vacation because they give just that je ne sais-quoi!

#2. Wedges/Flatform Sandals

We love opting for a wedge in the summer and especially on vacation because of the sheer comfort and easy walking ability. If you're heading anywhere that has the possibility of cobble-stone streets, you'll be seriously thanking us when you're not having to worry about getting a heel caught!

#3. Carry-All Bag 

Sure, you can have all of your essentials but where will you put them?! We suggest going for something really easy to sling over your shoulder and chic enough to conceal all of your day time items when it comes time to sip cocktails in the evening.

#4. Statement Necklace.

We like to think of a statement necklace as that great piece that you can throw in your bag and pull out whenever the mood strikes. What's also perfect about these is that they can pair perfectly with a super casual white T-Shirt or a bring a sun dress up a notch when you're looking for that extra sparkle. No-brainer? We couldn't agree more.

#5. Relaxed Jacket/Layering Piece

Nothing is more unpredictable than the weather so do like your mother told you and pack a layer. Opt for something lightweight that you won't mind slinging over your arms and if possible, compact enough to be able to stick in your aforementioned cary-all bag. The beauty in picking something with a more relaxed silhouette is that it will pair great over your breezy summer layers just as well as dresses.

#6. A Good Read 

Two new additions to the Mine & Yours library are the much talked about '#GIRLBOSS' by Nasty Gal founder, CEO, and "Chief Trouble Maker," Sophia Amoruso. Another girl power addition is by PR maven, Kelly Cutrone entitled 'If You Have To Cry, Go Outside.' So even while you're lounging at the pool or beach or wherever your summer rendez-vous may take you, you can still be plotting your empire.
