Weekend at the Beach Packing List

With a long weekend rapidly approaching, many may be heading towards the ocean! While I won’t be amongst you over Memorial Day, I’m having a little beach getaway with a friend in a few weeks. I can’t wait!

We’re only going for three days, so I’m keeping it light on the packing list. I’m not even bothering with jeans or jackets… it’s going to be 90 & sunny. Nothing about that says “pants” to me. It’s really just dresses, swim wear, and a few accessories.

beach packing list!

This will all fit in a carry on with room to SPARE! We are driving… which is tempting to overpack. However! There is no reason to bring a bunch of stuff I’ll never wear! Cover ups can be worn a couple of times, swim suits can be hand washed easily and dry quickly, and sandals go from day to night. 

Think about what you’ll be doing before you overpack. For this quick vaca, we’ll be doing a lot of laying on the beach, relaxing by the pool, and grabbing dinners. There’s no reason for me to pack my entire wardrobe or bring anything heavy or too fancy. Maxi dresses will cover a multitude of sins in a sleepy beach town, and my black sundress ALWAYS works several ways on a trip! Choose versatile pieces that make sense

Woo hoo! Beach time! Stay safe out there, kids. Plenty of SPF, water, and have fun!
