The essentials of vacation should be as easy as the long days lounging and breezy nights lounging some more. And while comfort is key on these respites, we all love good pics to commemorate those sun kissed days. We’ve got the essentials for your laid back vacay with enough style for the fashionista and enough comfort for any lazy traveler.
The first thing you need are the super comfy kicks. We love the bucketfeet sneaks over at Maven Womenswear. With a funky print that would take any t-shirt and cutoff combo to a fun place they are utterly comfortable for those long walks. Speaking of cutoffs, we’re loving the variety of them over at Hemline.
They have them paired in our pic with a linen camp shirt (another must have for travel). Denim shorts are perfect to throw over a swimsuit or for a day shopping. A camp shirt of linen is the breezy option for covering up. Great with shorts and just as cute with palazzo pants or a maxi.
For a day at the beach the absolute essential is a good cover up. This green print from Vanessa V. is just the way to go from lounging poolside to a bite at a nearby café. Add some flat gladiators and a chunky necklace and no one will be the wiser that you’ve got on that bikini underneath.
For nights eating out a little romper is casual cool. We love black and white — especially of the striped variety. This romper from Jewelie’s is styled with a pop of tomato red but would look amazing with just about any color from mint green to cobalt blue.
And for the bag to hold it all — Tory Burch, of course. Over at kiki they’re celebrating all things travel with a big ole sale all month long — 30 percent off travel handbags and accessories for the month of June.

OCT 21 Two St. John Parish employees were indicted in connection with the ameoba found in the parish water supply, WVUE reports in this post. They are accused of lying about testing the water for proper chlorine levels, the story says, claims that were contradicted by their government vehicles' GPS records.
OCT 21 Here's an interesting story from the National Journal about New Orleans almost 10 years post-Katrina. There are demographic information and charts, as well as some commentary about the corresponding changes in the way the city looks and works.
OCT 21 Gambit offers its endorsements for the upcoming election in this post, including an endorsement of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu. The best way to protect Louisiana's clout is to re-elect the senior senator, the paper opines. Sending a Republican in her place won't accomplish anything, the paper adds.
OCT 21 The McClatchy DC blog posts this fascinating view of Louisiana's political landscape. It's a little heavy on the cliches, and also a little heavy on the quaint Cajun/Creole shtick, but it's still good reading -- if only for the outside view of our insides.
OCT 21 An audit finds very little federal oversight of coastal restoration grants, the Advocate reports here. Two federal agencies charged with overseeing how the money was spent didn't oversee the grants properly, didn't know enough about how the grants were supposed to be spent, and provided conflicting records about the money, the audit found.
OCT 21 The first Senate debate featuring all three candidates was a big ho-hum, columnist Jim Beam writes in this post. Nobody said anything new or interesting, and nobody emerged the clear winner, he says.
OCT 21 Bobby Jindal can't seem to leave Daniel Malloy alone, this post on NOLA Defender says. On a recent trip to stump for another GOP'er (Ever wonder: does any of his stumping really help these guys? Or is he just trying to get his name in other newspapers?) Jindal again ran afoul of Connecticut's Governor, who has no problem calling Bobby on his claims, the post tells us.
OCT 21 Jeremy Alford writes about David Vitter's playbook in this post, and frankly, there are some things we don't want to know. We've all heard about what's in that book, haven't we? That kind of stuff is not our idea of a good -- oh, wait. Jeremy's writing about Vitter's political playbook. Never mind.
OCT 20 Remember those great posts from blogger Jason Brad Berry that featured emails and letters related to the BP claims process? Well, apparently Patrick Juneau (who was featured, but not in a positive way, in those documents) ordered a background check on Berry because of it, this story in Louisiana Record says. Huh?
OCT 20 The Globe and Mail, a Canadian paper, has posted its story on Louisiana's coastal loss here. In it, author Omar El Akkad clarifies it neatly: it's "a battle between prosperity and the planet's well-being." Are jobs and money worth the trade we're making? As Jonathan Foret says in the story, Mother Nature may come and answer that question for us.
