Ok, it’s not summer yet but I know lots of you have already been planning some fantastic trips already. One of my fabulous readers is planning her bachelorette party in Cancun and requested a post on what to wear/bring so I thought I’d do a post to help her out and get us all excited for those beachy vacations we are all planning.
Of course you need a cardi to wear on the plane but once you get off, toss that baby into your carry on! Get a nice lightweight cardi like this one that won’t add much bulk to your bag.
I chose wedges over flats only because I like the little bit of height and I think these travel well and would look great with any of the outfits that I would bring with me.
I don’t wear flip flops. They are just not my style, even to the beach and the pool I wear cute flat sandals. It may seem unpractical to some but that’s just how I roll. 🙂 I like the look of these ones, super cute!
I always throw a cheapie dress over my bikinis as a cover-up.
The all important sunnies. Gotta have those.
And a cute beach tote to carry your essentials: sunscreen, towel, iPod, magazines and cash to tip the cute cabana boys 😉
It’s good to have a cheapo bag to take to the beach but I love this heart print one too.
For a night out of dinner and dancing, instead of changing, just throw on a cute skirt like this one over the romper to create a whole new look! (Plus for my bachelorette girl – in case you have a bit too much to drink you won’t have to worry about flashing anyone if you just happen to fall over. Just looking out for ya! 😉 )
change your shoes into these cutie wedges and dance the night away!
Other miscellaneous must haves:
If you are self conscious about getting into a bikini before you are tan, I suggest this self-tanner. It’s very natural and goes on really well.
For the face, I like to use this bronzer. It’s the most natural look of all bronzers that I’ve tried. Not shimmery and just the right amount of color.
The all-important floppy hat. Personally, I don’t like to get my face very tan, I’d much rather use a bronzer to match my tan. I always keep my hat on when I’m at the beach.
And of course, your most important accessory of them all, a yummy fruity drink in your hand!

Don’t we all wish that we were on the beach right now? I sure do!
