The warm weather after many many cold months means resort style time is here! If you’re looking to plan your getaway and wondering what to pack I have you covered here 🙂 This post is in collaboration with Stay Fierce Boutique.
Whenever I pack for getaways that are over two days I always make the mistake of taking way more than I need! To save you the same trouble I have made a check list 🙂 Now, let me confess that I am not a very outdoorsy girl, so this list is really all about the resort style vacations.
I start by looking at what I am going to do. So my latest vacation for instance, I was going to go whale watching. Getting on and off the boat called for a pair of flats. So I made sure to carry some. But in general, you want to make sure you have the following covered:
- Date night
- A day at the beach
- Pool day
This post is all about the date night! So you can see for yourself! Summer for me at the moment means floral. If you look at all the resort runway styles, that’s what most of them have! This dress from Stay Fierce Boutique really has this style covered! I love that this style has so much detailing. The draping in this dress is really flattering! I have paired this dress with a pair of cute pink flats! Sometimes less is more, really 🙂 I am also wearing a Forever 21 bracelet and a set of rings. The DKNY crossbody finishes the look. This dress really doesn’t need much to complete the look! Check out the Stay Fierce Boutique and don’t forget to use code fivefootnothingxoxo to get a discount at http://www.stayfierceboutique.com.
For a day at the beach or by the pool, don’t forget your bikini or swimsuit and a coverup. Also, make sure to pack sunscreen, a nice straw hat and a cushy towel to lay on. I would also suggest some nice magazines or books 🙂 Oh, and don’t forget a backpack or beach bag to carry all of this!
For sightseeing, I usually take shorts or jeans depending on how hot or cool it’s going to be. Which means, check the forecast before you leave! Crop tops are the craze this season, so carry one with you. It might be a good one to wear for sightseeing 🙂 Carry a pair of keds. I recently bought a pair from Zara and love them! Don’t forget your camera for this part 🙂
As for brunch, I usually like to carry a nice pair of heels and either a cute day dress or a skirt and top :)I have plenty of examples here on this blog if you would like some ideas!
Now for the general stuff, don’t forget your makeup, jewelry and sunglasses!
Make sure you count the days and have a fair idea of what you will be doing so you don’t run out of clothes! Also carry stuff you can mix and match, that way you can always make up outfits 🙂
I hope this helps. Happy Packing for you resort style vacation 🙂
