Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! Sloan made it home from camp yesterday… sweaty, happy, and exhausted! We dumped everything straight in the washer, then re-packed for a weekend of wedding festivities in Montana! I’m so excited to celebrate my sister this weekend, and spend time with all our family (even Mr. College is flying in from Kansas!).
Then Mr. Sugarplum and I fly out Monday morning for our 25th anniversary trip!! It’s a tropical destination that’s been on my list since high school, and I can’t believe we’re finally going! So as you can imagine, it’s been a flurry of prepping and packing around here!
There’s no question I travel light for beach trips, and have a formula of styles and products that come with me almost every time. I do like to add a few new pieces for each trip, and Nordstrom is my one-stop vacation shop! They have a huge selection of everything from swimsuits and cover-ups to maxi dresses and sunscreen… plus all the travel essentials! And since I’m a self-admitted ‘panic shopper,’ the fast and free shipping always comes in handy, ha!
If you’re planning your own beach trips, here are some of the styles I’ve packed recently, along with a few new pieces I picked up for our trip next week!
Ruffle One Piece Swimsuit (size 4)
Here’s a handy packing checklist of beach essentials I use that might helpful for you!
Cross-Back Swim Suit | Panama Hat | Square Sunglasses | V-Neck Pocket Tee
Cover-Up Dress | Maxi Dress | Straw Tote Bag | Distressed Denim Shorts
Miller Sandals | Slim Flip Flops | Supergoop! Sunscreen Travel Kit | Short Pajama Set
And don’t forget your comfy travel outfit… you know I reach for the Vuori Performance Joggers almost every time, and have been a long-time fan of Calpak. This suitcase and duffle combo is essential for that carry-on life!!
The greatest thing about most beach vacations, is anything goes! As long as you have a swimsuit and SPF, the rest is bonus, right?! What essentials are always in your vacation suitcase? Better yet, what beach locations are on your travel agenda this year?!
