Nothing like squeezing end some end-of-summer travel right before school starts! We’ve been making up for lost time this summer and wanted to get in as many family beach trips as possible. I’d heard so many amazing things about the Destin/Seaside area of Florida and couldn’t wait to try it out! And I’m not quite ready to give up on my summer wardrobe yet haha so I wanted to share what I packed for our beach getaway with you guys in case you’re soaking up every last second of summer like me!
This summer has been all about affordable swimwear for me. I feel like I’ve been adding to my swimsuit collection like I used to add to my shoe/bag collection – it’s become an obsession! But I’ve found so many amazing suits under $50 recently that I don’t feel one bit guilty about it. I’ve had this strapless bikini for years and love the colors and high-waisted fit – flattering on every body type and under $30. Also love this blue paisley one (under $30). The bottoms hit a little lower but still super flattering cut. And of course this tan and ribbed one which I have shared on repeat and was another staple on my last Florida trip! Own it in multiple colors and can’t get over how good the quality is for under $20.
One of my favorite looks this season is a ribbed set under a long, oversized linen top. Such a chic combo, especially with a pretty sandal and sun hat. I own this set in multiple colors (under $30 – also brought this last time we came to Florida 🙂 and it’s soooo good!
I always pack a few pieces that I can dress up for nights we go out to dinner. Love the cut of this dress – looks so much more expensive than it is. So easy to dress up with some pretty heels (obsessed with the heel on this pink pair) or dress down for a day time look with some neon sneakers (these are the newest addition to my sneaker collection – love the colors!!) This romper is also one of my favorite Amazon finds this summer – it’s under $30 and looks like a dress, but as a romper it’s super easy to wear with kids. Just thrown on heels and a pretty bag to transition to a night look.
TRENDS & STATEMENT PIECES
Also been digging the revival of the 90s trends with these wide leg, slit denim (under $40). If it feels like it’s been a decade since you wore these last, you might be right haha. Keep it feeling 2021 with a fitted long sleeve top (this one is 🤩) or a cropped knit – love the colors on this one.
