Summer Soundtrack: Beach Getaway

It’s travel month! So we’re swapping moodboards for playlists to inspire your next getaway.

Summertime and the livin’s easy, especially when you’re at the beach. The sun, the salty surf (and some sneaky beers, of course) — is there any better way to spend the last of the dog days? Nope. So grab your towel, suit up and hit the sand. And don’t forget to pack this playlist in your straw bag alongside your sunscreen and hat for good vibes all day long.

 

Summer Soundtrack: Country Retreat

It’s travel month! So we’re swapping moodboards for playlists to inspire your next getaway.

How do starry night skies, lakeside bakes under the sun and ice cold beers sound? Pretty good, right? There is nothing like running away to the country to recharge your batteries, where you can sit back, breathe in the fresh air (while picking up a whiff of barbecue) and appreciate the little things. Don’t have a ticket? This playlist will take you there.

Summer Soundtrack: City Escape

It’s travel month! So we’re swapping moodboards for playlists to inspire your next getaway.

Sometimes, you’ve gotta let it all go and get lost in the bright lights of the big city. And there’s nothing more fun than getting dressed up for a hot night on the town — trying on a million outfits, swiping some color across your lips and then wandering the streets to get to whatever restaurant or show you’re just late enough not to be really late for. This little track list will add an extra finesse in your Rachel Comey-clad step, as it takes you from the cab to the hotel closet and straight to the dance floor.

Summer Soundtrack: Road Trip

It’s travel month! So we’re swapping moodboards for playlists to inspire your next getaway.

Picture this: dirty windows rolled all the way down, long stretches of highway, blurry green treetops, bluebird sky. Crumpled up candy wrappers and sticky soda cans. Sing-a-longs with your best friend and random pit-stops. There aren’t too many things better than a summer road trip and the memories that you make in that cramped little space in between your seat and your steering wheel. Here’s the soundtrack to your next one.

 

Summer dreaming with Fieldguided

What’s the biggest thing to keep in mind this summer, according to Fieldguided’s Anabela Piersol? Enjoy the little things in life and, most importantly, do absolutely and utterly nothing. 

“Goals for summer: always lazy and unambitious. Cutoffs, ice cream, carnivals, and festivals. Taking plenty of dips in cool, cool water. All the fruit and all the icy cocktails.”
