Summer Outfit Ideas for Your Staycation Vacation

These days, you can’t jump on a plane and fly to Europe or spend a day relaxing at the beach without the worry of big crowds. So, the most popular way to vacation this summer is by taking a Staycation.

What’s a Staycation, and what do you wear? Here’s a look at some cute summer outfit ideas for your Staycation Vacation.

1. For Gardening and Puttering

A staycation is simply a stay-at-home vacation. You can spend it in your backyard or around the house and even take short trips to local attractions during the day, always returning at night.

This summer, many of us ( including me) have turned our backyards into an outdoor oasis. We are enjoying new and forgotten activities like gardening, outdoor decorating, reading, swimming, barbequing, and outdoor games. There’s also a new interest in visiting local tourist spots and scenic areas we may not have known existed or just never bothered to explore.

A Staycation makes it exciting to get dressed, and is a great way to motivate us out of our familiar lockdown loungewear, so plan yours today!

Shorts are a natural summer staycation outfit, and these cute waist-tie shorts are modern and stylish. Pair them with a cute striped tank top, hoop earrings, and these minimalist braided sandals for when you are puttering around your garden or nipping out for a day trip.

2. For Lounging in the Shade

One good thing about a staycation is that it forces you to slow down and relax. Think of your backyard as a spa and pamper yourself by lounging outdoors in style. This darling strapless jumpsuit is chic and super comfy. A gorgeous pair of sunglasses makes you look super glam, and these square-toe sandals are all the rage this summer. Finish it off with these festive tropical earrings – see how they match the tassel? Fun!

3. For Swimming and Sunning

If you are lucky enough to have a pool, then take full advantage. Buy yourself a cute new swimsuit and coverup, and pretend you’re somewhere tropical. This sexy blue one-piece with the figure-flattering ruching is a knock-out find. Team it up with this vibrant coverup, cute flower sandals, and a shell straw hat. Then make yourself a Pina Colada and enjoy your staycation.

4. For Entertaining

Things are finally starting to ease up a bit, and small group gatherings, staying six feet apart, are beginning to become possible. When you want to have a few close friends or family over, here’s a cute summer outfit idea.

This darling coral maxi is perfect for a Staycation on the patio, deck, or by the pool. It’s cute enough to give off a party vibe but ultra-soft and comfy too. Plus, the color is fabulous! Wear it with these cute braided sandals, colorful earrings, and a cute hat for a breezy Staycation look.

5. For a BBQ and Drinks

Here’s another cute, casual summer outfit that’s perfect for just about anything. Wear it to Bbq, on a local day trip, or lunch at a favorite local outdoor dining spot. Seersucker shorts and a white eyelet top always look so fresh and summer. Strappy slides and rope stud earrings add a nautical vibe.

Enjoy your Staycation.

  1. Hi. I was wondering if your American Nordstrom picks are automatic picks that would be available on the Canadian site.

    1. Hi Alexandra, Unfortunately, the Canadian Nordstrom site,, is separate and does not have the same merchandise selection as the US site, If you find something you want on the American site and it is not on, then you can buy it off, but it will be shipped from the US, and you will have to pay duty. It’s too bad, but that is how it is now. Things may change in the future. Cheers, Deborah
