20 VACATION READY PIECES

Our honeymoon is coming up in a less than two weeks and I AM SO READY!!! It seems like all it’s done here lately is rain, so I am really, really ready for a bit of sunshine and relaxation with my husband! In preparation for our upcoming trip I’ve bought a few vacation ready pieces… and fallen in love with about 723648 other items (ha!) so today I wanted to share a few of those with you.

what to pack for vacation

  1. WIDE BRIM HAT | I have this hat in a few colors and I absolutely love it. It’s great for keeping your face covered from the sun and it’s a great accessory too.
  2. ESPADRILLE WEDGES | These are similar to a popular pair, but at a fraction of the cost. They have great reviews on comfort.
  3. EMBROIDERED ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT | I’m all about a one-piece swimsuit this season. I love the embroidered detail and the lace up. It adds a fun, yet chic element to the suit.
  4. TASSEL STATEMENT EARRINGS | These earrings come in quite a few colors and are really lightweight. I’m loving this bright green color.
  5. STRAW BAG | The shape of this bag is so unique and the tassel is a cute addition.
  6. HIGH WAISTED DENIM SHORTS | I know I’ve talked about these shorts non-stop lately, but they are SO good. The perfect length & wash.
  7. BUTTON FRONT SHORTS | These are by the same brand and seem to be the same length. The button front is cute & would look adorable with a crop top.
  8. BEADED SLIDES | The colors in these beaded slides are gorgeous and just scream “vacation!” These also come in quite a few other colors.
  9. SUPERGOOP SUNSCREEN & LIP BALM | I never go anywhere in the spring/summer without my Supergoop items. They have the best sunscreen- I never get burned with it and it’s great for sensitive skin. I LOVE the mousse sunscreen because it’s not greasy like normal sunscreen. I also really love the lip balm. It keeps my lips from getting sunburned.
  10. SUNGLASSES | I can’t believe these sunglasses are only $14! I always like to have a spare “cheap” pair when I’m on vacation so I don’t lose or mess up my nice ones.
  11. PRINTED MAXI DRESS | I’m all about maxi dresses on vacation because they’re so easy and can be accessorized in different ways. The print on this maxi had me as soon as I saw it… so gorgeous! If this print isn’t your thing, it comes in a few different prints too.
  12. TANK DRESS | Whenever I travel I like to bring items that can be worn more than one way and this t-shirt dress is definitely a contender. It can be worn for dinner or as a swim coverup.
  13. SCALLOP ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT | This swimsuit is conservative and flattering. Plus I love the scallop and small cut-out detail.
  14. PALM PRINT SHIFT DRESS | Does this not scream vacation?!? The print would easily have me blending in with my surroundings!
  15. WHITE EMBROIDERED TOP | This flowy top would be great with cut-off shorts or white denim.
  16. WHITE LACE COVERUP | This lace coverup will keep you looking chic on the way to the pool, I promise!
  17. NAVY EMBROIDERED SWIMSUIT (TOP/BOTTOM) | Y’all I have a problem when it comes to buying swimsuits in the spring/summer. There are SO many cute ones this season, including this one. The embroidered detail is cute and I like that the bottoms are full coverage.
  18. PASTEL PRINTED DRESS | I ordered this dress yesterday and I can’t wait for it to come in. The colors are so pretty and will look great with a tan.
  19. FLORAL EARRINGS | These pink tortoise earrings would be cute with just about anything that I’ve featured! They make a fun statement and go with a lot due to the mixed colors in them.
  20. LINEN SHORTS | I like linen for vacations because it’s so easy to wear. These shorts are great for casual lunches or brunches while on vacation. I wore a similar pair last year in Europe while sight seeing and they were comfortable all day long.

  • A little mid-week floral happiness for ya! 🌸 hows everyone doing this week? I’m having a pretty good week so far - sharing a few things I’m thankful for this week:
• a loving, supportive husband! I haven’t been out of the house in 2+ weeks & he’s made sure I have everything I need!
• neighborhood walks, they’re good for the soul & a great way to recharge.
• a great support system near & far keeping me encouraged!
• the ability to catch up with friends! 👩🏼‍💻Had a great zoom call with my #bloggersdotravel girls @mystylevita @glitterandgingham @kristinchambless & @poorlittleitgirl today!
• my endless pile of books that I want to read! 📚I’ve enjoyed unplugging and reading every day. #booksconnectus

  • 24 weeks with our baby boy🤰🏼💙 it’s crazy to think we get to meet him in just 16 weeks, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by! 👶🏻I feel grateful that I have had a healthy & happy pregnancy but, to be honest, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions. As a first time mom, I have these feelings of immense sadness as the last half of this pregnancy is going to be nothing like I had envisioned. There have been a lot of tears over the fact that many exciting moments can no longer be shared with those closest to us. I know others have it much, much worse but I’ve learned it’s ok to be sad & to feel these emotions. I’m upset that I am no longer able to have a baby shower to celebrate our first born, I’m sad I don’t get to hug our family and watch their faces as they see my growing bump. I’m upset that these last few months of just the two of us look completely different - more time spent in our house quarantined and less time having date nights at our favorite spots and doing the things we want before baby arrives. I mourn the fact that our families may not get to meet our baby boy in the hospital the way we always talked about. But with any situation, I have cried it out (a lot) and decided to take it one day at a time and to find joy in each day💙 And ya know what? There’s a lot of joy amidst the chaos. It brings me so much joy to feel his daily movement (and my heart nearly burst when Nick felt him kick for the first time).🥰I am overjoyed that we have such a strong support system near and far. I love that we get to spend more time at home spoiling our fur babies. I find solace knowing that there are so many pregnant mamas out there feeling these exact emotions & we share a common experience and bond! I am grateful for those that are on the front lines caring for everyone. I know we have the best doctors carrying us through this uncertain time. We are strong mamas and we will get through this! 💕 so, I challenge you to find the join in each day no matter your situation! #24weekspregnant #24weeks #pregnancy #2ndtrimester #stylethebump #bumpstyle #pregnant #pregnantduringcovid19 #pregnantblogger #thebump #boymom #expecting #expectingmom

  • How’s everyone doing? 💙 I’m taking it one day (heck, sometimes one hour!) at a time this week!

Here are a few things I’m grateful for:
• Getting to check on our baby boy👶🏻& hear his heartbeat today!
• That I am able to work from home & have some sense of normalcy through all of this👩🏼‍💻.
• Those who are working & caring for others (including doctors, nurses, delivery drivers, those who work at grocery stores & restaurants handling takeout).
• Having this community to chat with through the good & bad days! It’s been so nice connecting with all of you via DM (especially those who are pregnant or new moms!) as we juggle this new “normal.”

  • Hi friends 👋🏻It’s a new week & I’m going into it with a positive attitude (that’s all we can hope for at this point, right?) 💙I’m social distancing & self quarantining in an effort to “flatten the curve.” We spent the weekend going on walks with our pup🐶, getting in a lot of reading📚, binging Love is Blind📺 and cooking some of our favorite meals🍽! We’re trying to remain positive & do the best we can to protect ourselves and others 😊 p.s. I am *loving* this dress (wearing XS) & it’s bump approved - swipe to see a pic of my #22weekspregnant bump! http://liketk.it/2LDxv @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKspring #LTKbump #bumpstyle #stylethebump #pregnantblogger #22weeks #expectingmom #babyontheway #2ndtrimester #bumpfriendly
