Packing for Vacation!

I am SO anxiously awaiting my long weekend getaway to FL in a few short days! Whenever I'm headed somewhere beachy, I instantly gravitate towards the brightest pieces in my closet. The trick is to packing versatile pieces that can go from day to night by swapping out shoes or adding a statement necklace. Also, finding pieces that will travel well without needing ironing!

I've been trying to be on my best healthy behavior before we go + doing some spray tanning so I don't look like a pasty Wisconsinite on the beach.

I know I'll fit in perfectly on our little beach trip in these colorful + patterned outfits!

Packing for a Beach Vacation

Vix Bikini Tie-Dye Perfection
I picked up this tie dye VIX bikini for $30 at Marshalls.. score!

Summer Staples
I'll choose a pair of sparkly sandals over rubber flip flops any day..

Pineapple + Statement Necklaces
A colorful statement necklace is my must have when traveling!

I am SO in need of a vacation and I wish I could share all the details but, I'm trying to keep our destination and activities of our trip a surprise for Kyle! 

I used Samsung Galaxy camera to snap these and can't believe how great the quality is!. It's going to be the perfect travel camera for capturing all of our adventures (+ mobile uploading on the go- woohoo!). 

What are your essentials when traveling to the beach?

I usually take the smallest bags I can to a beach vacation. My tips: lots of dresses that can be dressed up or down, dressy and casual shoes, a hat, reversible bikinis and a tiny crossbody bag.
