My Must Haves For a Tropical Get Away

I am a huge lover of tropical getaways even living in Florida and I am a pro at packing for them!  (My favorite location is hands down Hawaii despite living the furthest I could away from it lol).  But in my travels for both work and play I have created a list of MUST haves for any tropical trip!

Hardside Trunk Expandable Suitcase Blush 19″ | Hardside Trunk Expandable Suitcase Blush 26″

One of my recent purchases is a big girl set of matching luggage and I LOVE my hard sided luggage from SWISSGEAR.  Its super durable, expandable and frankly adorable.  The hard sided luggage is amazing for avoiding your stuff from getting crushed by the luggage handlers who are less than delicate with your stuff lets be real.  Its available in both the checked and carry on options and therefore makes for the best “grown up” luggage set around in my book.

Contrast Bow Straw Hat | Self Tie Floral Print Kimono Romper

A nice sized hat that shades your face from the sun is a MUST, so many places the sun is so incredibly brutal that I prefer to keep as much of those rays off my eyes and face as possible to avoid sun damage (I know grandma talking here) and to avoid burning that super sensitive skin on your face. This is one of my favorites thats super easy to pack and won’t get destroyed if it gets crushed in your bag (one more reason to see the hard sided suitcases above however).

Pixi skintreats Sun Mist

Lets be real, I am a seriously pale girl and the sunburn issues are no joke!  I love Pixi Beauty and this mist is incredible!  It doesn’t leave a white cast, you can mist it over your makeup, and my skin isn’t left feeling greasy or oily!  It keeps my face from getting burnt to a crisp which is so key to enjoying any vacation!


Polka Dot Self Tie Bikini Set

You absolutely have to have an adorable swimsuit for any warm vacation wether its the beach or bumming it by the pool drink in hand!  I can’t get enough of these polka dots (or any as I’m sure you have learned from previous posts) .  The style of this is so cute and I would wear it all the time!  Its an absolute must have.

Stripe Ruffle Cami RomperWomen’s Stretch Belt | Women’s Mad Love Vada Flip Flop Sandal

An adorable, comfortable, breathable romper is a MUST!! When the temperatures rise and you are all salty, sandy and just want to make a quick run for lunch this its 110% the way to go (and did I mention its under $15?).  Its so effortlessly stylish and comfortable its a must have for any warm weather vacation!


Leaf Print Pleated Cami Dress | Contrast Bow Straw Hat | Bow Detail Ankle Strap Sandals | Round Handle Straw Tote Handbag

Last but certainly not least is a fabulous adorable tropical print dress!  I love this one because it emits a classic chicness while still being breezy, effortless and such an easy wear!  Combine with a cute hat and this amazing woven bag and its ready for any occasion on vacation.
