Ultimate Beach Getaway Packing List

I’ll be the first to admit that my packing game was not always strong. In fact, up until very recently, sporadic would have been the best word to describe how I approached packing, which often resulted in me bringing way more things than I actually needed, and/or forgetting to take some of the things I would now consider my absolute beach getaway must haves. Well, practice does make perfect I suppose, because in time, I’ve learned that when it comes to packing smart, versatility is definitely the best way to go! So, without further ado, here is my absolute must-take, can’t do beach getaway right without, packing list.

Crop Top – so good with high-waisted shorts, maxi skirts and wraparounds, I love the fact that they can be easily styled and restyled for day or night. I often pair them with denim shorts or high-waisted bikini bottoms during the day, and switch to a dramatic maxi skirt for an evening out. Oh, and if I happens to be off-the-shoulder, well, that’s just icing on the cake!

Wear Anywhere Slides – comfort is key for me when it comes to vacation footwear, so a pair of cute flats is a must. Normally, I look for something with pretty little details, or embellishment to make them special enough for night, yet comfortable enough to run around during the day.

Cute Coverup – what I normally look for is something I can easily throw over a bikini during the day, yet something special enough I could wear to dinner at the beach at night.

Beach Bag – the right beach bag is an outfit maker for me. Since bags tend to take quite a bit of space in a suitcase, I try to limit how many I take to as few as possible, so I often opt for straw and rattan options in neutral colors which tend to work well with most of my beachy outfits!


White Maxi/Midi Dress – otherwise known as the dress I tend to live in during beach getaways. Pretty and practical, easy to wear and accessorize, I love a good white ( preferably eyelet ) dress because it looks equally relevant at dinner paired with dressier shoe and bag option, yet never fails to impress during the day thrown over a bikini and accessorized with a floppy hat and giant sunnies.

One Piece Wonder – aside from the fact that monokinis are having a bit of a moment right now, I love a one-piece suit because let’s face it, most of the time it doubles up as a top. So, yay to another top option! Never a fan of anything plain, when it comes to swimwear, fit is obviously a priority numero uno, but cut and special little details, tend to be a close second. Cute at the beach, cute for poolside cocktails paired with denim shorts and a floppy hat, basically cute all around, so what’s not to love.
