beach vacation packing guide


A few weeks ago, Michael, Shiloh, and I went to Mexico for a little family vacay and had the best time! I always have such a blast packing for beach trips so today I wanted to round up everything I brought to Mexico, in case any of you are also heading to the beach soon!


This under $100 dress was definitely a favorite I brought on the trip! The color is so pretty and shows off your tan and the back has the cutest bow! It’s definitely on the short side so if you are taller than 5’7, it might be too short for you. (I’m 5’7 and felt like the length was short but not too short!)

I also am OBSESSED with these embellished sandals (also under $100)! They look perfect with denim shorts or dresses so they are perfect to bring on any beach / summer vacation!

You can’t go wrong with a white maxi dress at the beach and this might be my fave white maxi I’ve ever purchased. I love the crinkly / crepe-type material. It’s not see through, and the quality is so good. Also looks adorable with a denim jacket!

These embellished slide sandals are another under $100 fave and perfect for any beach trip because you can easily dress them up or down!

Fun statement earrings are definitely a must for any beach trip and this pair from Kendra Scott went with almost every single outfit I brought! I love the neon colors and they’re actually very lightweight!

Having a coverup that goes with everything is another essential beach essential for me. This romper is under $100 and I love that it was something I could also wear to breakfast or lunch!


This sanctuary swimsuit was probably my favorite I brought on the trip! I love the v cutout (but it’s not too revealing) and the colors are so fun for summer!

This crochet coverup from amazon is under $30 and another one that can literally go over any swimsuit! I love how lightweight and feminine it is!

I love this matching set so much either as a swim coverup or for any daytime outfit! So comfy and flattering and the skirt can actually double as a dress too!

You definitely can’t take a beach trip without a light & breezy summer pj set! This one from target is under $20 and felt so luxurious yet kept me cool at night all at the same time!

i also never travel without these hair claws!Perfect for the beach or throwing your hair up to head to lunch when it’s actually v dirty haha.

I’m clearly all about neons right now and this bikini has SUCH a great fit! It’s not too cheeky and I think the top is so comfortable + practical, but still flattering!

Hands down my favorite one piece I have ever owned. I actually have it in two colors now because it’s under $100, so flattering, and great for chasing around a toddler too!

These palazzo pants are a favorite coverup of mine for sure. They are so comfy and chic and literally go with any swimsuit! If you have a beach trip coming up, definitely make sure to grab them!! You won’t be disappointed.

This one piece is SO fun with the bright color + crochet detail. Becca makes some incredible swimwear and I personally love her swimsuits bc they give better booty coverage than most swimwear available right now! This one piece is sexy yet practical all at the same time!

This outfit above was just an easy comfy outfit for traveling! And this backpack is DEF in my top 3 fave backpacks I’ve ever owned! I love how it looks, so many compartments for organization, and the quality is SO good!
