Packing for a Summer Vacation!


If you’ve got the travel bug, we can’t blame you. The summer months just evoke blissful daydreams of basking on exotic beaches with a daiquiri in hand and blue oceans in front of you, ahhh yes! Everyone loves a great vacation, but we know that no one loves the prep work. Packing is a pain, am I right? We’re about to make it easier for you with our travel checklist. Ja-vie believes in making things comfortable & stylish. Follow along for our items not to be left behind when packing for a summer vacation!


Are you an aviators gal or a chunky frames chick? Whichever you choose, don’t leave home without them! Not only do they protect your eyes from the sun, but they are such a fun accessory. Don’t forget the case, we would hate to see them get crushed in your carry-on!


A beach day or European stroll wouldn’t be complete without a hat! Style your hat choice based on your location. Headed to the beach? Pack a floppy sun hat. Going hiking? Pack your baseball cap.

Comfortable shoes:

Don’t leave home with your ever-so-comfy Ja-Vie flats! They take up very minimal room in your suitcase and can be folded to fit in a smaller compartment. Comfortable for walking, color options galore, & stylish for dining out - they’re so dynamic & versatile to fit every vacation situation.

Sunscreen & lip balm:

The sun can cause skin damage even in the cloudiest of climates. Find a travel sized tube at your local drug store and pack it along for safe measure. Nothing can damper a vacation like a brutal sun burn.


Warm days can bring chilly evenings. Pack a versatile scarf so that you can cover your shoulders for evening walks and religious sites, or wear it as a stylish accessory to match your gorgeous Ja-vies!


Long flight or endless beach days ahead? Pack a book. There’s no feeling quite like finding a good book that you just can’t put down. Stroll the aisles of your local bookstore and you’re bound to find something that catches your eye whether you’re into mystery thrillers or romance novels!

Wherever you’re headed this summer, we wish you the most awesome time! Traveling is an amazing experience wherever you visit. What’s the item you don’t leave for a trip without? Let us know below!
