Packing for a Beachy Getaway

Posted on

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 (this one from Pure London) for the plane
and cool evenings.

Pashmina Shawl

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:

UGG - Lucianna (Champagne) - Footwear
 Love the color here

UGG - Lucianna (Jade) - Footwear

BC Footwear - Lickety Split (Work Tan/Green) - Footwear

MICHAEL Michael Kors - Kami Ankle Strap (Nude) - Footwear

KORS Michael Kors - Vail (Nude) - Footwear

Then this splashy Cole Haan Wedge caught my eye with the gold detail
(I love a criss cross front-so flattering on the ankle)

                                             Cole Haan - Irving Wedge (Sandstone Nubuck/Gold Mirrored Metallic) - Footwear
              Must Take:

A few gold and blue pieces from my Riviera Luxe Collection at my Stylemindchic Boutique 
(loving the cocktail rings)

What are your must haves for vacation packing? 
Do you have any tips on streamlining the packing process?
We would love to hear about it.

I'll take notes and share more on packing tips after our little vacay.

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!
