Almost Beach Time

While many of you are shivering and welcoming in the cool, fall weather…we will be off to a tropical vacation soon! Instead of planning some favorite warm weather outfits…I waited until the last minute and all the stores only have furry hoods and boots for sale. This board is a little bit of what I wish I had purchased before my vacation (thankfully I have a lovely friend who let me borrow her sundresses!) Honestly, a lot of cute stuff is on sale right now so if I had the cash…I might go shopping for NEXT summer.

  1. Tye Dye T Back Maxi Cover Up from Topshop [sold out…sad]
  2. Summer Straw Hat from J.Crew
  3. Coach’s New Skyler sandals
  4. Glitter Polka Dot Cosmetic Bag from F21
  5. MD Solar Sciences Sunscreen from Amazon
  6. Skin Drink by LUSH
  7. Mara Hoffman swimsuit on Net-A-Porter
Do you ever plan special purchases before vacation or do you just use what you have? I always overpack so it’s probably better that I didn’t go shopping!

*Some links above are RewardStyle links so I would receive a small commission if you purchase!

  • Yes! I love making special vacay purchases, but I have found that if it is more than one key item, I typically don’t wear it as much or cherish the item as a special treat. the over-splurge definitely dampens the mood.

    I am actually going on a tropical vacay that is a complete surprise, so I have had to sit on my hands and keep off social media. Eeek. Can’t wait to share after the fact!

    • I can totally see that – who wants to feel guilty about buying all that stuff when you’re only in your swimsuit! The only things I bought were a carry-on bag (that I can use later as a computer bag) and some cute shorts. I borrowed dresses and had everything else!

      Oh and omg! Surprise vacation?! SO FUN! Can’t wait to hear about it!

  • Those sandals are awesome – I’m always looking for a good pair of gold sandals, but I never seem to find any that aren’t gaudy looking!

    Have a wonderful time away – Hopefully you will just live in your bathing suit the entire time, so it will be perfect!

  • IDEA! Since you saved beforehand….splurge on something fancy at the resort shops :) hehe!

  • I’m *just now* catching up on reading your blog, and wish I would have seen this post before you left. I totally have that straw hat I could have let you borrow! Next time … :)
