The Packing List: Summer Getaway

May 29, 2017

¡Hola! It's been a long while again! I just finished my first 4th year elective rotation in General Surgery so you can imagine my free time has been limited (non-existent to be more precise!), but I loved every hectic second of it! More on that in another post! Anyways, I was planning a weekend getaway for my little family and decided to share some things I would pack. 

1 It's no secret that I have a growing one-piece swimsuit collection and I'm proud to say I added this one to the pack! 

2 A gorgeous printed one-piece that could even be worn at night with a maxi skirt!

3 A sexy swimsuit for my plus-sized ladies!

4 (top)4 (bottoms) This bikini is so flattering for all shapes! It also comes in other colors.

5 A statement necklace like this one can take any outfit to another level.

6 Rompers are great because you can wear them as a cover-up for the beach/pool or you can wear them with tennis shoes for an excursion, making packing a whole lot easier! 

7 This gingham outfit is adorable! 

8 Another great day-to-night option!

9 If you have an Instagram account you've seen a graphic straw hat on almost every blogger and if you took the time to see how much those cost, you were flabbergasted by the price! Lucky for you, I found a very affordable option!

10 I love the palm print of this plus-sized maxi dress!

11 How fun are these earrings? They scream "VACAY!"

12 I recently shared a snap on the blog's Instagram wearing a Zaful dress so I decided to share one of their bathing suits here. My friend says they run small but she loves them!

13 A whole outfit with pineapples? Yes please!

14 I love packing a clutch like this one because it can go with any outfit, day or night! I would also pack a comfortable crossbody bag if I knew we were going on any excursions.

15 I usually buy my luggage at Marshalls or TJ Maxx but I couldn't resist sharing this rose gold beauty!

16 As for shoes, I would pack flats like these, a pair of flip flops, tennis shoes, and some nude/black heels. 

17 One neutral cover up like this one is enough for a whole trip!

I hope you enjoyed these options! Let me know if you find any other great summer outfits!
