Fashion Friday - Beach Vacation
When packing for vacation, I love to incorporate pieces that can be used in more that one outfit. I take a one piece swimsuit and use it as a bodysuit one night with a flow kimono and then wear it to the beach the next day! Same for jean shorts with a cute top, which is perfect for those beach dinners and then I’ll wear the jean shorts as a cute, casual cover up to the beach.
I’m pretty certain I have never been on a vacation that I didn't have a romper in the suitcase. I love their versatility, how easy it is to have a complete look, and how flats or heels look great with them! Below are some super cute rompers from Forever 21 that are great price points (tap on the photos for more info!). Perfect for throwing on for the day to explore where you are visiting or to dress it up and wear to dinner at night.
On our last beach vacation, I wore this cute Lovers + Friends romper, which is a splurge. If you haven’t heard of this brand though, check them out. Such unique, feminine and good fitting pieces. They are definitely one of my favorites. Revolve has a great selection of Lovers + Friends and also the most amazing shipping policy. It’s free shipping and returns, plus if you are really in a pinch you can overnight to get all your items quicker!
The sun is amazing, but it can be killer for your skin so its essential to pack a great, wide brimmed beach hat. Here is an amazing steal option from Forever 21 and here is my splurge by Eugenia Kim. Pro packing tip: pack clothing items inside the hat, around and under and on top of it to keep its shape!
I LOVE shoes and on vacation that’s no exception! Although, I usually want to pack my whole closet, I’ve started to pack more practical for the beach. My favorite beach flip flops are the Haviana’s. Easy to slip on and off and easy to clean. Since sandals basically take up no room I usually pack two flip flop styles and two sandal types. Gone are the days where I would pack multiple help options…now either I wised up that I am on vacation and at the end of the day you always reach for that cute sandal over the high heel or it could also be my one and three year old that have convinced me to reach for the flats lol! Below are some of my ALL time favorite styles and brands! Shoes are something I would invest in. They last longer, are made better and tend to be more comfortable. Here are some options that won’t break the bank and will be good staples for years to come!
Hope you feel all set for your next beach vacay and are inspired by these looks! Wherever your travels take you, make sure you have a pina colada or margarita for me!
