Hate packing? Hate unpacking? Can't decide what to take on your summer vacay? The last thing you want to pack is dread and stress in your suitcase. You've looked forward to your vacation, a break from the anxiety of day to day life, but you only have half of your 'necessities' in the trunk before it becomes a complete Tetris puzzle. Ditch the overload and keep things as simple as possible. When did packing for a week at the beach turn into a need for European luggage? Think of your last trip, how much extra "stuff" did you take that you never used? Those curlers, 3 pairs of wedges bc you couldn't decide on a color... Realistically, you will wear a swimsuit or your go-to cozy tshirt dress a majority of the time (probably together), so save yourself the hassle and embrace a nomad lifestyle for the week. The salt life takes over and your sun kissed checks go from the beach to the causal tiki deck for dinner with a breeze of a cover up. Don't worry, your instagrams will still look like causal perfection with the tropical backdrops and sunglasses saving the day so you don't need any of that pesky makeup. A couple key items and you will be able to "make do" with any situation that arises. Below are some of our favorites to throw in a bag and go! As an avid over-packer, I understand it's a challenge, but throwing that duffel in your backseat and jetting off into the sunset is a freeing feeling that won't have you looking back!
