    You're making a list and checking it twice. Yet, inevitably, some crucial item will be left behind on your bedside table and you'll only realize once you've made it through airport security. We've all been there. But, given that summer is peak wanderlust season, we need to be ready to pack up and hit the road at a moment's notice — with no essential left behind. All of our belongings need to be in check, on hand, and able to fit in a sleek carry-on.

    You've already gone through the work of booking, planning, and stalking geotags on Instagram. Now, it's time to sit back and relax — and actually enjoy the packing process. (Revolutionary thought, we know.) To make things easier, we narrowed down the list of vacation must-haves to 30: the beach-goer special of a dress that goes from beach to bar, the tourist-friendly jeans that don't look touristy, and more. All you need to do is make your assigned departure time — don't worry, we have the watch you need to make it happen, too.
