I am so excited to be heading to Florida this weekend for a long weekend in the sun. Actually, it’s supposed to rain, but I don’t even care. It’s been a frigid January, and I need some sun and beach, and the reminder that this winter won’t last forever. The nice thing about packing for a beach vacation is that if you’re looking to buy a new dress or swimsuit for the occasion, resort wear now comes out in January. It’s actually harder to find winter coats and sweaters in January than it is a bathing suit and sandals. Whyyyyyy? But that’s a whole ‘nother topic for another day.
Packing for a beach vacation is always my favorite thing to do, especially when it’s the middle of winter and I’m so over all my winter clothes. All those summer shorts, sundresses, and sandals feel fresh again. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to pick up some of the pretty floral dresses and coverups that I’ve been seeing everywhere and lusting over. Still, since packing is never easy, I created a list of essentials to help make packing for your next beach vacation easy. Here’s what I’m packing for our upcoming beach vacation and a checklist with all the essentials you’ll need for yours.
