Hey ladies! We need to talk about going on vacation because I think we all need and deserve one. There is nothing I enjoy more than a getaway where I can lounge by the water to sunbathe, have a drink, and relax! I’m sure you all agree with me! I have a list of important things you should pack for your next vacay. Today I’m sharing the 4 ultimate vacation packing essentials you need for your next trip!
The Vacation Essentials
Scroll to see my top picks for your packing list!
Arguably the most important vacation essential you should pack for your next vaca and all of them to come! This daily sunscreen gel from Tula is my absolute favorite. It has SPF 30, doesn’t feel greasy and doesn’t clog pores! Make sure to use my code ALWAYSMELISS for 15% off and you’ll be all set to sunbathe!
I absolutely love the L*Space Dean Hat! The natural color, wide brim, and versatility is just what you need to bring on your next vacation. It’s easy to style with a bikini, a sundress, or shorts and a tank! It is 100% worth the splurge because it will last a long while! If you want a more affordable but still super stylish option, check out the beige floppy straw hat from Lulus!
3. Beach Towels
You can’t head to the beach without one of these super cute beach towels! The green and pink reversible towel is a Target find and it’s only $12! The animal print towel is also super affordable and stylish. It’s from Bed Bath and Beyond and it’s $15!!
4. Beach Bag
You can never have too many beach bags! There are so many cute options out there and so many different styles so I narrowed it down to these two! The beige fishing net bag is an Amazon find- its under $30 and comes in a bunch of different colors! The multi-colored woven straw bag is from Lulus. It’s under $60 and it adds a fun pop of color for any beach or poolside look you’ll be vacationing in this year!!
So you got your sunscreen, cute sun hats, beach towel and beach bag…now here’s a few extra tips to follow while preparing to go on a vacation (since it’s been so long since we’ve gone away for some of us!!)
- Make a list. I love writing down the little things that are easy to forget when you’re running out the door like phone chargers, AirPods, or sunglasses! A physical note on your suitcase is the best way to put it right in front of you and makes it impossible to forget!
- Tag your bag! Add a tag or anything distinct to your suitcase so that when you’re waiting for it at the baggage claim, you’ll be able to easily identify it! Suitcase tags like this set of 3 from Amazon are perfect! These pom pom luggage identifiers are also an Amazon find and super cute too!
- Bring a fluffy blanket for the plane! It can get so cold in planes and especially if you’re taking a longer flight, it makes it impossible to get comfy. Bringing a blanket like this fleece travel blanket from Urban Outfitters is actually perfect. It rolls up and has a handle to easily carry it around. It’s also on sale right now for $29!!
