A fast last getaway


We all head excitedly into the first days of summer with visions of epic beach days and star-worthy bronzed skin. Yet after weeks of long office hours and errand-filled weekends, the end of summer is already in sight. Before the flurry of back-to-school and the High Holy Days, grab all the fun getaway items below, and get outta town!

1. Are you more the book-by-the-beach than the scuba-diving type? No problem — you can bring a splash of aquatic life to your spot on the sand. The Ralph Lauren Sea Horse Print Beach Towel ($13.99), with its plush terry cotton, is just as much fun to look at as it is to lie on. ralphlauren.com

2. Be it sand or chlorinated pool water, you’ll need some resistant material between the elements and your outdoor essentials. The Kenneth Cole Go Go Logo Tote ($49.98) will keep your stuff looking cute — and dry. kennethcole.com

3. Hasbro’s Soaker Wars Shot Blast Super Soaker ($19.99) should keep the kids — the ones with the Energizer Bunny-like stamina — busy and away from a napping mom and dad. hasbro.com

4. DKNY’s printed triangle bikini top ($38.99) and string tie bottom ($37.99) pay perfect homage to the bright colors of the sea, and the ultra-feminine cut leaves your bare skin free to soak up just enough rays to get glowing. dkny.com

5. These funky Calvin Klein Luxe Reversible Board Shorts ($49.99) will attract some attention poolside — not just for the cool patterns, but also for how well they flatter that beach body of yours. calvinklein.com

6. Hopping on a jet for a quick overnighter? Pack light and pretty with this compact, sleek Samsonite Silhouette 12 Softside Boarding Bag ($89.99). There’s even a bottom compartment for your shoes! csnstores.com

7. Even the hottest bikini loses its appeal when it’s hidden under a ratty T-shirt, so spice it up with the bright coral Zuza Cover-Up from Diane Von Furstenberg ($136.50). The deep V-neck is perfect for showing off that gorgeous suit. dvf.com
