Wanderlust Wednesday: Beach Vacation Essentials


It's hump day!  But today is even better than that.  Today is actually my Friday.  Why?  We are heading to Florida this evening for a much needed beach vacation!  This trip was originally scheduled for over Spring Break and Easter, but a few things got in the way of our plans so we re-schedule for June.  Since I grew up in Florida, I know June means HOT and HUMID.  It wouldn't be my first choice to go down this time of year, but you take what you can get.

I'm also excited because this trip is just the hubby and I.  Oh and Buoy.  (Because he never gets left behind!)  The two of us (three of us) rarely get a vacation all to ourselves.  We LOVE our families and we LOVE traveling with them/to them.  BUT it's nice to take a vacation that is just us every once in awhile.


I've been itching for a beach vacation....well since the day we got home from our last one over a year ago.  Since I've been packing my bags, I thought I would share a few of my beach vacation essentials.  Can't leave home without 'em!

To make packing easier, I stuck to a neutral palette (story of my life, even when I'm not taking a trip) and picked once accent color.  I mostly have black and white packed, with a few pops of PINK (shocking, I know).  This is a super casual trip, so I don't need to bring heels or anything like that with me.  A few shorts & tees, some sun dresses and flip flops and I am good to go!  And sunscreen.  Lots and lots of sunscreen.  Otherwise I am going to fry!  And I never used to.  Anyone else having that problem?  The older you get, the more likely you are to burn from the sun?


Beach Vacation Essentials


I'm actually really proud of myself.  And the hubby.  But more impressed with myself.  We are packed in one check bag with room to spare and a small carry-on roller.  Packing cubes have saved my life!  If we can swing it, I always like to have a carry-on bag that has enough essentials to get us through a day or two if our luggage were to get lost.  It's happened before and it will happen again.  Better safe than sorry!

I can't wait to enjoy coffee with this view tomorrow morning!


If you want to follow along on our weekend vacay, I'll be posting on Instagram!  Do you have any beach vacations that you are wander-lusting after?  What are your essentials?  Did I miss anything?

  3. Love this post. Luck you to be heading to the beach. I'm supposed to be on one now, but it too didn't go as planned so I'm working out a new plan. Love that stella & dot cuff! Also, those Old Navy palm print shorts fit amaing-ly. I have them in black. Have fun. I'll follow along on Instagram!
