It’s time to start packing for those planned-months-ago summer getaways. And if there’s one thing I know, it’s that ensembles need to be tailored to specific activities. (I just gave away that I’m an overpacker, didn’t I?)

Everyone knows what to wear on the sand, so dig out all those bikinis, swim trunks, one-pieces, and board shorts. But when it comes to boardwalk-lunching, pier-wandering, and late-night adventures, the area becomes a little grey. Until now:

3 Must-Have Pieces for An Oceanside Getaway

The cold weather is getting pretty old, so planning a trip to the beach is well overdue. But when it comes to picking the perfect outfits to jet off with, we’re always tempted to go overboard. Thankfully, this effortless collection is here to save our suitcases. Bring just a few dresses that transition from day to night and pants that work with just about any top, and you’ll be a pro at packing light in no time.  Nautical details keep these picks fresh and totally relevant for that oceanside oasis. All that’s left? A pair of wedges and a breezy ocean view.

Our Elizabeth McKay Boutique opens Monday, February 18, at 11AM ET.
