Beaches and winter should always go together! I am back to freezing temps and grey skies but, having fun looking at our vacation photos and remembering how HOT it was and how amazing it felt to be warm! First and foremost, one of the things I liked most about my trip was how perfectly I packed for the beach!
Each outfit was stylish, comfortable and practical. I didn’t fill my suitcase with unnecessary items that would only get worn one time and everything I packed was used multiple ways. If you want my free travel guide that tells you exactly how to pack, click here.
Meanwhile, if you’re heading to warm destination – or want to get ready for summer! Here are some of the best items for a beach vacation! Just click on the pictures to shop!
Best Sneaker and Sandals
Comfortable shoes that you can use for sightseeing, exercise and walking back and forth to the drink counter (you can’t believe how much Diet Coke we consumed!)are an absolute must. There is nothing worse the taking the wrong shoes on vacation. I need my sandals to be stylish and practical. There are all some fantastic options that will support your feet and above all, you will NOT look like you have given up on life.
Best Swimming Suits
I’m a bikini fan but I get that most of you aren’t. Here are some darling one piece options that alsoDON’T look like, as I’ve said before… you’ve given up on life.
Best Sightseeing Styles
For those days where you actually leave the beach chair for more than just to eat, stay cool in these breathable fabrics that will help keep you cool. Don’t you have tight clothing when it’s hot! Breezy is best!
Best Beach Bags and Sunglasses
You will need something to carry your books, sunscreen, snacks, beach towel, phone, Diet Coke (there’s a theme) and then all the stuff your husband needs you to carry because he doesn’t have a purse. I have included my favourite colour of bag for spring – PINK! I took mine on the plane and then used it over and over for the beach and our sight seeing days.
Here is one of my favourite outfits for the beach. I loved how this bikini fit and how great it looked with this cardigan. Can you believe that I also wore this cardigan on the plane. I never thought I would use it as a swim coverup but it looked great!
To sum it all up, the clothes you pack on vacation should bebe practical and simple! For more ideas on how I used each item in my suitcase, get your free packing guide!
