My ultimate vacay is a beach trip and I just came back from the Dominican Republic for a work/ play sort of trip itching to share some of my favorite beach essentials and tips for packing light.
If I can, I try to always pack in a carry on, making travel easier and faster without running the risk of losing my bags. Some of my favorite carryons that save on space and are lightweight on their own are from Calpak, Herschel, The North Face
In my carry on I always have ample amounts of my favorite sunscreens, sunglasses, and a small makeup bag- opting for that au- natural look. My hair products are also minimal- as I let the ocean and sun do its magic.
Some of my favorite sun care products:
For the day, I bring a few coverups that can be folded small into my suitcase which can also double as a dress for dinners, my favorite sandals for the beach, a wedge sandal for the night, a beach bag, and a small clutch for evenings. The clutch can also be used as an accessory pouch in your beach bag to hold money, cards and your lipgloss! A fold up beach hat is perfect for travel as well as your favorite pair of sunnies! Lastly, let's not forget my favorite bikinis! I am totally a bikini girl and when Shein sent me this cute leopard one i couldn't resist. They even gave me a discount code for 15% off so go ahead an happy shopping (SW88)
So pick up a good beach read (currently indulging on Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks) head to the beach, catch some vit D and relax from the busy world we live in.
