Hope you had a fun weekend! I spent all Sunday cleaning and organizing our place while Matt was at work (he’s in busy season right now, so usually works on the weekends which forces me to get through some of the things on my admin list). After knocking out a few to-do items, I decided I would start my wish list for our upcoming trip to Hawaii, is it April yet?
It has been years since I’ve booked a beach vacation, so the countdown is on and although we have a month to go, It’s fun to start planning. Especially because, I am the worst packer ever (do not let the smiling below fool you). I decided to start prepping early, so once we land, the toughest decision I’ll face is piña colada or mai tai. #piña
It has been so fun scouring the web for swimwear… not something I do very often. It’s been a nice little escape from winter weather and to ease my mind into vacation mode. I’m dreaming of the scent of coconut SPF, the fresh dreamy air I’ve heard so much about, and the sound of the ocean while we immerse ourselves into a good book.
Now, what to bring to Maui? That is the question! I teamed up with my friends at Loft, to curate a handful of beachside staples that will make packing a breeze. Ever since discovering how amazing their sweater collection was this past winter, I always like to check their new arrivals and am so blown away by their pretty pieces (and my bank approves of the price point). I’m so ready to be cast away-ed in the sand for an entire week, and this is what will be making it into my suitcase….
This swimsuit is absolutely coming with. Scallops will never get old to me– I love the very simple silhouette topped off with the charming details that add so much! The fit of this one is so perfect. I also am SO drawn to red this season. I have been bookmarking pretty shades of poppy red in all forms– dresses, shoes, swimwear. I cannot get enough of it. Also… dying to add marigold into the mix somehow.
Swimsuits are always the toughest decision for me, I’m beyond picky with cuts and how things lay and flatter. But, there are a few styles that I find foolproof when ordering online… my favorites from Loft below… (all 25% off right now)
Since I am going to try my best to just bring a small carry on, I’m looking for easy throw-ons like this top I’m wearing above paired with a pair of jean shorts, or this adorable jumper to wear to a sunset dinner. Scallops and linen are really speaking to me for this trip. 🙂 Lastly, I will be bringing as much straw with me as I can squeeze in, only 2-3 pairs of shoes, and a few accessories like this darling silk scarf and OMG, I need this one!
What can you not leave behind on beach vacation? Would love to know so I don’t miss anything…
