Going camping is a lot of fun! However, it’s important to remember that dressing for camping isn’t quite like dressing for anything else. It’s not about looking attractive- though you definitely can find some cute camping clothes. Instead, it’s about wearing clothing that is going to protect you from the elements during the time that you spend in the great outdoors.
It’s also about knowing the weather and general conditions of the area in which you will be camping and packing clothing that will work specifically in that area. As such, make sure you do your research on weather and general conditions before you go because those factors will weigh heavily on what types of apparel you should bring for yourself and your family members.
Camping Essential #1: A Stylish (and Functional Hat)
One “must have” item for just about any camping trip is a stylish hat. A chic hat not only offers protection from elements but hides your camping hair!
In addition to being a good style option, however, hats can also play an important role in keeping the sun off the face and eyes, reducing the risk of premature aging and, even more importantly, skin cancer. Having a hat can also be handy to keep sweat away when you’re trying to pitch a tent or reel in a big fish.
Camping Essential #2: Sturdy Shoes
One of the most important pieces of clothing you could ever bring camping is a good pair of close-toed shoes. You want shoes that are sturdy and that offer support to the feet since you’ll probably be doing lots of walking and maybe even some hiking on your camping trip.
Flip-flops and sandals may be comfortable, but they’re definitely not a good fit for walking through the woods. Sandals may seem easy, but you want to avoid dirty feet or bug bites with a closed toe shoe.
Our Merrell hiking shoes are good for light hiking, and they’re super comfortable too!
Camping Essential #3: Shorts
If you’re lucky enough to be going somewhere warm for your camping trip, make sure you bring along comfortable shorts for everyone in the family.
Don’t forget to spray your legs down with an extra layer or two of bug spray before you venture out into the great outdoors! Patagonia and Bonobos shorts are a good choice if you’re looking for something durable and well made.
Camping Essential #4: Layers
The temperatures outside will change as the sun goes down, so make sure you pack clothing that is easy to layer. Think lightweight long-sleeved shirts and leggings for underneath your clothes, a light jacket or vest and some outerwear pants, and a heavier jacket too, just in case.
Even if it’s cooler outside, you’re likely to get toasty when sitting by the fire or doing something physical, so you want to be able to control your own body temperature and comfort, and layers are an easy way to do that.
Add a Patagonia fleece jacket or better sweater, or a North Face Pumori jacket into your layers, and you’ll definitely never be cold! You can also find cozy North Face and Patagonia jackets for kids as well.
Camping Essential #5: A Swimsuit
Camping trips are all about spontaneity outdoors, and you never know what might happen.
You might find a great creek that’s just begging for you to swim in it, or you might get caught in a rainstorm and want to splash through the puddles with your kids! It’s always best to be prepared, so pack a swimsuit and a few extra towels. That way, you won’t have to say “no” to something fun just because you don’t have the right gear.
We just love Tommy Bahama swimwear for frolicking in the water!
Camping Essential #6: Button-Up Shirts
One of the best pieces of clothing you can bring along is a button-up shirt. These shirts are super comfortable, and they’re pretty much perfect for layering. A button-up shirt can double as a light “jacket” or as the perfect pajamas for when it turns chilly outside. Bring along a few for each member of the family, and everyone is sure to stay comfortable throughout the trip. Columbia PFG shirts can be a wonderful choice for cozy button-ups.
Camping Essential #7: Moisture-Wicking Clothes
When you’re shopping for camping gear, try and find items that are labeled as “sweat-wicking” or “moisture-wicking.” These items, which are typically designed for people engaged in sports or exercise, do exactly what the name implies- they keep moisture or sweat from seeping into clothing.
That means they are an awesome way to stay dry even when it’s humid outside and you’re dripping sweat; they can also allow you to dry more quickly if you get caught in the rain or have to throw some clothes on over your still-wet swimsuit. With moisture-wicking gear, chafing and discomfort become a thing of the past. Most of our brands, especially favorites from Patagonia and Columbia, offer this performance in their fabrics.
As you can see, there are all kinds of great clothing items to stock up on for your next camping trip. Of course, though, the last thing you want is to be loaded down with heavy gear that you don’t need, so always consider where you are going, the weather forecast, and other details when you pack. That way, you can bring along just the bare essentials and maybe a few “just in case” items as well without weighing yourself down too much.
Remember, too, that the most important thing isn’t what you wear or how you look but how much fun you have camping with your family! Be prepared and happy shopping at Saint Bernard with our free three day shipping on orders over $49 and free returns.

Lilly Pulitzer is one of the top designers of women’s clothing. Her clothing, which is often referred to as “resort wear,” is known for its bright, bold designs, colors, and prints. And even though it might get the “resort” label, every Lilly girl knows that these clothes look great absolutely anywhere! And, whether you’re looking for a Lilly Pulitzer vest, Lilly Pulitzer dress, or anything in between, there’s something great for everyone from the latest line!
This season, the designer has launched a whole new line of colorful dresses, skirts, tops, and more. Some are like nothing you’ve ever seen before, while others are throwbacks to classic designs. Lilly has even brought back a few favorites that people begged for!
Here, we’ll detail some of our favorites from her great new line, and we’re willing to bet you’ll love them all. In fact, the hardest thing will be choosing which one of her awesome new pieces to add to your wardrobe!
This season, Lilly Pulitzer is offering up some really cute rompers. While rompers were once thought of as clothes for kids, recent fashion has seen them turned into cute, fun, but still very adult day-wear.
One of Lilly’s best rompers from this season is the Karlie Wrap romper. This romper is currently available in a pleasant pink and orange print. It looks, to the front, like your standard wrap dress, but it’s actually a comfortable, casual shorts/skirts combo that is sure to look great on anyone, especially if you pair it with a cute pair of Lilly Pulitzer shoes!
It’s versatile enough to be worn on vacation or even for a work function, so you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of this romper or any other romper from the Lilly Pulitzer line.
If you’re familiar with the Lilly Pulitzer line, then you know that this designer values comfort as much as she does beauty. And, what better way to combine beauty and comfort than with a cute, comfortable, lightweight t-shirt dress? In fact, the only thing more comfortable than a t-shirt dress would be Lilly Pulitzer pajamas!
One awesome t-shirt dress from the Lilly line is the Linden A-Line t-shirt dress, which comes in a navy color with a wild neon print. The dress features a crew neck for optimal coverage, making this dress or any like it the perfect choice for church or spending time with the family.
Dress it down with cute sandals or dress it up with some wedge heels; either way, you’re sure to look and feel great!
Fit & Flare Dresses
Essentially every woman looks amazing in a fit and flare dress or a Lilly Pulitzer maxi dress. These dresses, in case you’re not familiar with them, are dresses that are fitted at the top and then flare out into a fuller skirt. And, while they look wonderful on any woman, they are especially great for women who want to hide their hips and slim their waists at the same time.
The Lilly line has an adorable fit and flare dress this season called the Raegan Fit and Flare dress, and it comes in a flirty pink and white print. It has lovely lace detailing near the neckline and down the front.
And, while the dress is new to this year’s line-up, it’s not entirely new to the Lilly line. It was so popular in years past that Lilly brought it back thanks to a large demand. However, nothing this good can last forever, so definitely snatch this cute dress up before it’s too late!
Who said the sporty girls can have fun with fashion too? The new Lilly Pulitzer Luxeletic line brings function to fashion, letting long spring and summer days stay comfortable and easy in athletic wear featuring classic Lilly color and prints. Layer these looks and enjoy them all day long!
We just love boatneck dresses because of how timeless they are and how well the neckline accentuates the curves of the female form. And leave it to Lilly to make some of the cutest boatneck dresses around.
One of our favorites is the Loren short sleeve boatneck dress, available in a beachy blue and pink print. This knit dress is made with lightweight, breathable fabric, making it perfect for those hot summer days. It’s also super comfortable, so, with the right accessories, you can LOOK all dressed up without feeling like it.
Nothing says summer quite like an easy, breezy sleeveless shirt, and Lilly Pulitzer has long been making some of the cutest sleeveless tops around. One of our favorite Lilly Pulitzer tops this season is the Essie top, which comes in a wide range of adorable colors and prints, each capturing a bohemian, summery feel that you’re sure to love.
This top looks great when paired with shorts or a cute skirt, and it will keep you cool and comfortable all summer long thanks to its lightweight but durable cotton fabric.
Scallop Hem Shorts
Speaking of summertime, what would summer be without a cute, comfy pair of shorts to wear? And, it certainly doesn’t get any cuter than scallop-hemmed shorts. This unique hemline is playful, girlish, and fun, perfect for any Lilly lover.
The 5 inch shorts available this season come in a playful pink print and are made from breathable cotton for easy wash and wear. They’ll look great with a tank or t-shirt and your favorite pair of chic sandals!
As you can see, the Lilly Pulitzer clothing line is offering up some awesome new additions this season and even bringing back a few favorites too. All you can do now is shop, shop, shop! It will be very easy to put together an amazing new wardrobe with all of the great offerings from Lilly Pulitzer this season at Saint Bernard, with free three day shipping on all items over $49.

There is nothing better or more relaxing than spending the day- or, better yet, several days- at the beach playing in the waves and soaking up the rays. However, your beach vacation can take a turn for if you forget to bring along the essentials! As you prepare for your beach trip, make sure you keep our handy packing list nearby. That way, you can ensure that you don’t forget any of the essentials and that your beach trip is every bit as dreamy as you want it to be!
Beach Must-Have #1: A Sturdy Beach Bag
To begin with, you want to make sure that you have a great, sturdy beach bag to help you get all your items down to the beach. If you’re vacationing with just the grown-ups, you simply need a bag that can hold the essentials, like a good book to read, your sunscreen, a towel, and your favorite sunglasses. Obviously, if you have little ones and their toys to lug down to the beach, you’ll need something even bigger. “Roominess,” however, is a good quality in any beach bag.
You also want something that’s made to withstand sun, sand, and water, so something made of mesh or another lightweight, easy-dry material is a definite must. Choose a bag with good shoulder support too for easy carrying, especially since you’re likely to be juggling beach chairs and other items at the same time.
There are many cute bags designed specifically for the beach, and these are usually your best bet.
Beach Must-Have #2: A Flattering Swimsuit
There’s nothing worse than getting to the beach and realizing you’ve forgotten your swimsuit. And while, sure, you could buy one at one of the beach shops, you’re probably going to pay a pretty heavy markup on a not-so-high-quality swimsuit.
To avoid those last minute, costly purchases, make sure you bring a flattering swimsuit with you. We say “flattering,” because who doesn’t like to look good on the beach? When you look good, you’ll feel good, and you’ll be able to relax more deeply.
Even better yet, go ahead and bring two suits along with you just in case one gets damaged or is still drying when you’re ready to go out. There’s no need to be the person who owns a thousand suits, however; two quality ones is plenty!
Beach Must-Have #3: Sunblock
Even if you’re hoping to leave your beach vacation with a nice tan, sunblock is an absolute must. Skin cancer is no joke. Plus, no matter how tan you are, you’re not going to look good if you suffer from premature aging due to too much sun exposure!
As such, make sure you pack a good, quality sunblock, NOT sunscreen. Sunscreen filters out only some of the sun’s rays, still leaving your skin vulnerable, while sunblock, the highest SPF if possible, protects you from all the harmful stuff found in sunlight.
Enjoy your time in the sun safely with our collection of Supergoop sunscreen products, and if you’re really that desperate for a tan, why not just get a spray tan? The worst that would happen is you’d look orange temporarily, and that’s better than anything happening to your skin!
Beach Must-Have #4: A Cute Cover-Up
One major rule of “beach life” is that you’re more than likely going to be running around in your bathing suit for most of the day. It’s not at all uncommon to leave straight from the beach to go grab a quick dinner or to just stroll around town.
Obviously, you don’t want to be going into restaurants or stores with just your bathing suit on, so invest in a cute cover-up, or even two or three to change things up. You can opt for a true beach cover-up, designed specifically for that purpose, or you can, instead, choose to purchase some slip-on dresses or skirts and tops that dry quickly and that look great, even with a bathing suit underneath.
The key is just to have some easy grab-and-go items like our styles from Seafolly that can be tossed on at the last minute and still allow you to look at least a little put together.
Beach Must-Have #5: Sunscreen Lip Balm
Your skin isn’t the only thing that needs protecting when you’re out in the sun’s rays. You also need to make an effort to protect your lips, which can easily become chapped, dry, and sunburnt after a day in the sun. Invest in a good lip balm that contains sunscreen; the higher the SPF, the better. Higher SPF levels mean higher levels of protection for your lips, keeping your pout healthy all summer long!
Beach Must-Have #6: Pool Float
As you lay at the pool and look at the water, grab a floaty friend to keep you comfortable catching rays and make a statement in all of your photos! Our flamingo pool floats from Sunnylife tuck into your luggage and are ready to inflate and party once you arrive!
Beach Must-Have #7: Aloe Vera
Just in case you accidentally skip the sunblock one day, you’ll want to bring along a nice big bottle of aloe vera or aloe vera lotion. Nothing is better or more soothing for a bad sunburn than this “miracle cure.” Even if you’re not the type to forget to slather on the sunblock, bring along a bottle just in case someone in your party isn’t so lucky. You’ll definitely be a hero to that poor, sunburned person.
Your beach trip is going to be a blast. However, you can cut back on stress and just focus on enjoying your vacation a whole lot more if you are diligent in remembering to pack these items. Pack your bag with Saint Bernard and enjoy free three day shipping on all orders over $49!
