My Summer Vacation Must-Haves

Since it seems like it has been raining here in South Florida NON-FREAKING-STOP (& that’s not an exaggeration) over the past few weeks, I can’t help but daydream about our upcoming summer vacations. Visions of wind-blown hair (mine & Henry’s ha!), swimsuits and our toes in the sand are clouding my mind lately and I think it’s safe to say I’m so excited to get outta town! While I know traveling with the babe in tow won’t be the most “relaxing” of vacations, I truly do love any excuse to travel and can’t wait for Henry to experience all of our new adventures.

When planning a vacation, I always do some shopping beforehand. A trip is the best excuse to spruce up my wardrobe and find a few pieces that will travel well and fit whichever destination is on the radar. Plus, planning a vacay is almost as exciting as the actual vacay – am I right?! From beachy accessories to lounge chair reading material, below are a few of my summer travel must-haves!


SPF: Now more than ever it’s so important for me to practice safe sun and set a good example for my baby! This BeautyCounter sunscreen is safe for the whole fam.

Coverup: When walking from hotel to beach or pool to lunch, a cute and comfy bathing suit cover up is a must. I love the stripes on this one and it packs so easily. PS- it’s on sale right now!

Tasseled Tote: Tassels are EVERYWHERE this season and I’m not mad about it. I love this bright and trendy beach tote that will forever remind me of vacation!

Statement Earrings: Tropical vacations NEED a pair of aqua earrings, right? Right!

Sundress: I’m still loving the off-the-shoulder look and this dress is daytime perfection.

Sunnies: Summer in general isn’t complete without a good pair of sunnies! These are my classic favorites that never seem to go out of style.

Floppy Hat: I can’t seem to ever pull off a fedora no matter how hard I try, so a floppy hat is my go-to. This one won’t break the bank and its neutral color matches every suit.

Bikini: I LOVE the colors in this suit for summer! It’s such a pretty blue and the pattern is super cute. This bikini is also SO soft.

Sandals: A versatile pair of sandals is on my vacation packing list! I strive to pack as few pairs of shoes as possible so I really try to find something that goes with a few different outfits and a few different occasions.

Reading Material: I doubt I’ll get to read on this trip, but I’ve been reading this book lately and it’s amazing! It’s so inspiring.
