Your Guide For Packing For The Beach


I absolutely adore this time of year, and with Memorial Day right around the corner I’m planning a little getaway to enjoy this much welcome warm weather! Watch out Malibu, here I come.

This weekend, make sure you pack like a pro. Whether you’re at the lake, beach or pool… here are some of my favorite wardrobe essentials for a bit of R&R over the three-day weekend.

Sun Hat

I’m a hat girl through and through, and there’s no better time for a little shade than when you’re kicking it beachside. Protect that lovely face of yours with an oversized straw hat.

Strapless Swim Suit

Let’s be real, everyone wants to come away from a vacay with a tan. These days, I’m noticing that a lot of the more trendy suits can leave you with a knarly set of tanlines. Why not be stylish AND functional?! That’s why my swimwear select for this weekend is a scalloped strapless bikini. Score!

Statement Earrings

The good news is earrings don’t leave tanlines. So my vote on jewelry is the bigger the better. I picked these oversized palm leaf earrings because they make a statement that says, “I’m on vacay!” I’m really loving gold this season and these earrings do just the trick to get the fix.

High-Waisted Short

Next, I know I’m not alone when I say I’m totally crushing on all things GINGHAM this season. I can’t get enough! That’s why I added a pair of adorable gingham shorts. Pair with your bikini top, or with a graphic tee for the perfect beachside look.

Graphic Tee

Lastly, make sure you make a statement with a good graphic tee. I picked this one, because who doesn’t love a bit of distress? I love an oversized tee during the warm months because it goes on easy over a suit and you never have to worry about sweat marks.

Now that you’re covered with the essentials for your wardrobe, you’ll be ready to go have a KILLER weekend. Make sure to remember to pack a good sunscreen and stay hydrated!
