The Clothes Horse, Travel Edition – All You Need For Summer Adventures Near and Far



No, you’re not likely to pack your own horse on a summer vacation. But whether you’re hitting the road or flying somewhere new, these items will help you enjoy your trip in style.

It’s true; horses do go with everything—as does this soft poly/cotton/rayon blend tee. It features a semi-fitted cut with a slightly scooped neckline. Available in dapple gray (pictured) and iconic navy; $59.

Janessa Leoné Harlow Hat

The conundrum: You need to pack a shade hat that looks great and is functional, but you know it’ll be crushed in a suitcase before you arrive at your destination. Don’t worry; this is the scenario the Harlow Hat was born for. Crush it, fold it, smash it—and then watch it immediately bounce back to its original shape. Each hat is handmade in natural raffia and features UPF 35+ protection. Available in four sizes, from small to extra large; $287.

These Field Notes booklets are waterproof, ensuring they won’t be damaged by a rainstorm or by your water bottle leaking inside your backpack, and they’re the perfect size to throw into nearly any bag. $14.95 for a pack of three.
