Who’s ready to go on vacation? It is bad to say I came from vacation 2 weeks ago, but ready for another one? There’s nothing like taking some time off in a resort somewhere, drinking mojitos by the pool! No laundry to do, no work to take home with you, no snow you have to shovel out… just you, relaxing doing absolutely nada. Sounds pretty good, right?!
Most people are beyond excited about their travel plans, until its time to do some packing. I get it guys, its stressful! You don’t know what to pack, what to leave behind, and don’t even get me started on outfits! So, what happens? You end up with a suitcase filled of random items you don’t want to wear.
I was that girl once!
I've gone on trips with two suitcases, a carry on, just to get to my destination and find out I don’t like anything I packed.
Us Bella V girls have a solution for you! These are our resort packing must haves
How many days your you going for? I like to wear a different bathing suit each day I’m there. The good thing about these is how easy they can fit in your luage. You can roll them into your shoes, side pockets, etc. Tip: If you don’t have enough bathing suits for all the days your there or maybe you rather just take a few, mix match your suits! It will feel like a brand new look each day!
Keep it really simple, after all your on vacation! Go for all your lightweight items like coverups, rompers, button down dresses. You will probably spend your days out doors, by the pool or beach and you will be hot and sweating.
Keep Excursion Attire in Mind
Are you doing any fun activities? Some of these excursions require proper attire. Pack some sneakers, shorts or workout clothes for these activities!
You most likely will spend your night drinking and dancing away. To make more room in my luggage, I only packed dresses. Just one piece, no matching top or bottoms. If your not a dress kind of girl, go for some cute jumpsuits! Jumpsuits doesn’t require any matching item nor does it take up much room in your suitcase!
I hardly bring any jewelry with me while on vacation, because my wardrobe consist of easy looks! Also, the risk of me loosing it will haunt me my entire trip. I brought one simple necklace, a pair of hoops and a pair of statement earrings… and that's it! Aside from jewelry, bring sunnies, hat, neutral clutch, and a beach bag! A beach bag is an essential, no need to carry all your stuff around the beach or pool, plus if your going on any excursion, your going to need a tote to put all your stuff in!
You guys know I am a shoe addict :) But when it comes to vacation, I put these feelings aside and get down to business. All you will need are flip flops for the pool and beach, flat sandals, sneakers, and only 1 pair of heels. Tip: Choose heels that are a neutral color, making it easier to pair with all your nighttime looks. Take consideration and opt for some wedges instead. Most of these resorts/hotels have patio flooring outside (most likely stone). The last thing you want to do is fall and look like the girl who cant walk in heels!!
Less is more when your on vacation. First you don’t know no one there, most likely will never see them again and besides your there to chill! Bring CC Creams, tinted moisturizer, cream blush and waterproof mascara.
SPF All Day Long
And please babes… don’t forget your sunscreen!
