The thing I love most about beach vacations is that you just don’t need much. A swimsuit, some casual clothes for lounging / messy taco eating + a nicer outfit for dinner… Boom, you’re good to go! Plus, on beach vacations, extra laziness is encouraged. That means no make-up or fancy hair products required. Just let the salty ocean water do its thing on your mane, then swipe on mascara + your favorite lipstick. Like I said, good to go.
For me, utilizing a neutral color palette is the simplest way to ensure everything can mix + match, giving me maximum wear for my pieces. My actual vacay wardrobe did have touches of mustard yellow. However, with a neutral base, it was pretty seamless for me to throw in a pop of color and still have everything work together. And rest assured, these 10 items don’t count bras, underwear or airplane clothes, so I promise I brought all that too.
If I was going to go super minimal, I’d say I could have survived just fine with a swimsuit, jean shorts, tank top + sandals all week long. That is, if I hadn’t spilled the world’s most delicious shrimp tacos all over multiple articles of clothing throughout our vacation.
You can’t win ‘em all. But you can get drunk off Cerveza Sol beers + forget any of it happened.
Beach vacations, they really are the best.
