Must-Have Items to Pack for your Beach Vacation

No matter the time of year, a beach vacation is always a good idea. Whether it's time with your bride tribe at a beach bachelorette party or relaxation with your new hubby on your honeymoon; you'll want to make the most of your trip and your packing space. We've done your packing homework for you and picked out some super fun and stylish beach goodies - many coming from small shops just like ours. 

What to Pack for a Beach Vacation

1. Our floppy sun hats are here and ready for your vacation. These hats are the best of both worlds - they're cute and practical. You'll love how they shade your face and neck from the sun, and you'll look like a movie star while wearing them. We love the "Honeymooning" one or personalizing with your new last name. Have something else in mind? We can work up a custom order just for your vacation.

2. If you're lucky enough to be traveling overseas for your beach vacation, you'll want a slim and stylish passport holder like this one. We fell in love with this beautifully made case, and the interior flamingo print reminds us to not take life too seriously - especially when you're traveling. 

3. Some of our favorite cover-ups are ones that can double up as daytime outfits like these overalls. These are absolutely adorable to throw on over your suit, but you'll be super comfy and stylish wearing them all day whether you're shopping or doing some patio hopping. These are a great addition to your summer time closet. 

4. While you don't need much jewelry for most beach locations, your favorite pieces are always nice to have. This travel jewelry case keeps things organized, both while it's packed in your suitcase and then once you've reached your destination. Plus, this navy seersucker is oozing nautical. 

5. A beach vacation wouldn't be complete without a LaLa Confetti tumbler. We love our floral water bottle for the ease of transport once you're at your location. With a screw top lid, you can throw this beauty in your beach tote and not have to worry about spills. This insulated water bottle will keep your tropical drink cold for hours. Just be ready for everyone on the beach to ask where you got your floral water bottle from. 
6. Your feet will thank you with these cute sandals. They're casual enough for a beach vacation,  but the monogram makes them oh-so-cute. The faux-leather will hold up in the sand and the rubber soles won't get too hot in the sun. These babies are great to go right from the airport to the beach. 

7. There are kimonos and then there are kimonos. This one by handloom is one of the best we've found. The bamboo and cotton blend make it soft and the edge detailing gives it a casual and natural look. A kimono barely takes up any packing space and you'll be able to grab it while you're heading to the beach or pool. The quality is great, so you'll have this one as a season staple for years to come. 
8. The idea of a travel journal may feel a bit luxurious, but you'll love being able to look back at your entries and relive your journeys. This journal is easy to pack and you'll be glad you did. Journal your thoughts as you're having your morning coffee, reflect at the beach and take notes to remember your favorite parts of the trip. 
9. You know you're going to have a good time with a tank like this. It's soft, comfy and perfect to throw on with some cut-offs to head out to the beach or to just grab a smoothie. And let's be honest - #VacayMode doesn't only happen at the beach, you'll be wearing this tank every weekend.

10. Finally, while you won't want to pack this item, it's a great purchase to remember your beach vacation. These wave artworks are gorgeous and when you walk by - you'll think of your good time at the beach. She can also create something custom just for you. 
Hope this gets you in Vacay Mode!
