I am so excited as we are going to Mexico next week!  I figured I would share some of my packing plans as I’m sure a lot of you are planning a trip in 2017.  I say it every year but this year I am really going to try not to overpack.  We don’t need a different pair of shoes for each outfit – or do we???

Bathing Suits – one piece suits are really in style right now.  Look for one with some interesting details like the ones I have attached below.

All four of these are from Nordstrom.  Starting in the upper left and going clockwise they are as follows: Becca ($118), Miracle Suit ($162), Ted Baker ($129), and Trina Turk ($128).

Cover-Ups and Beach Bags – a cover-up that can also be worn as a dress is a must.  Two great examples are below.  I also attached a beach bag that I love because it can be used in three ways.  It can be used as: a normal beach bag, a tote on the plane, or it can be used as a purse to wear into town for a day of shopping.

I found these at Nordstrom too.  The cover-ups left to right are Vix Swimwear ($198) and Rip Curl ($54).  The bag is by Tory Burch ($195).

Dresses – anything easy and fun is what I want to wear on vacation.  I just want to throw something on and look cute.  I think these will do the trick.

The one on the left above is from ASOS ($53) as is the one on the upper right ($28).  The white one on the lower right is from Nordstrom ($112).


The dress in the photo above on the left is from Nordstrom ($98).  The top right is from ASOS ($49) and the lower right is from Nordstrom ($49).

Sandals – these two pairs of sandals will take you through a whole week of vacation.  Both of the below shoes are from Nordstrom.  The top one is from Splendid ($108) and the bottom is Vionic ($80).

Kimono and Sunglasses – I love this kimono (Roffe accessories $48) to wear at night over a sundress if it gets chilly.  It will also look cute with a t-shirt and denim shorts or jeans.  The sunglasses (Quay $55) are rose gold – enough said.

Extras – this Nordstrom jewelry will go with every outfit on your trip.  The earrings are Natasha Couture ($24).  The saying on the bracelet (Topshop “Run Away to the Sea” $18) is so cute.  The hat (Halogen $39) is also cute plus it keeps you protected from the sun.

I hope these ideas will help you on your next getaway.  If you find my information helpful, please subscribe at the bottom of my site to make sure you don’t miss any of my weekly posts.  If you have already signed up – thank you.  Talk to you next week.  XOXO Michelle
