How To Pack for a Beachy Getaway


I am loving everything about this photo.....sigh!

I see some poolside lounging in my very near future, but first, I have some packing to do.

Since packing is not my favorite thing about travel I try to do some pre-planning and list making before I ever pull out a suitcase. For this trip my list is looking something like this.

Packing Checklist:




Michael Stars - Band Together Fedora (Black) - Hats


and wide brimmed hats (for sun protection)

San Diego Hat Company - PBF4212 Straw Large Brim Fedora Sun Hat (Bright Mix) - Hats

A black halter swim suit is always sophisticated around the pool  and can be paired with a 
chic chiffon skirt for dinner.

Calvin Klein - Solid Shirred Panel One-Piece Swimsuit (Black) - Apparel

These stylish cover ups can be worn as a tunic with leggings and a belt

Vitamin A Gold Swimwear - New Paradise Plunge Tunic (Onyx Shantung 1) - Apparel

Vitamin A Gold Swimwear - New Paradise Plunge Tunic (White Shantung 1) - Apparel

Sarong-it simply makes right any bathing suit 'wrongs' around the pool ;)

Vera Bradley - Sarong (Go Wild) - Accessories

Cashmere pashmina  for the plane

and cool evenings.

Flat sandals

MICHAEL Michael Kors - MK Plate Thong (Luggage) - Footwear

An early season tan gel to get a little color started

(love the privet scent).

Hampton Sun - Sunless Tan Gel 4 oz (N/A) - Beauty

A neutral nude polish

Butter London - Nude Nail Polish (Crumpet) - Beauty

and a pop of color

Butter London - Bright Nail Polish (Jaffa) - Beauty

Sunscreen and protection:

I use Arbonne Before Sun Products-botanically based, safe, pure and natural


Shopping List:

*Need to replace a pair of nude espadrilles


New Faves:

Then this splashy Cole Haan Wedge caught my eye with the gold detail

If you'll excuse me~I've got some packing to do~ now if only I could find my tan-it was here last year. 

Happy Monday!
