Beach Vacation | What I am Packing

Aug 7, 2018

We are headed on our annual family vacation this Friday!  We go to Figure Eight every year and I could not be more excited!  We usually go earlier in the Summer but because of my Brother in Law’s school schedule we are traveling later and let me tell you I am so ready for some family time and relaxation ( although who I am kidding with 6 kid’s it is not that relaxing- haha) !!  I wanted to share a few things I am packing that are Summer favorites of mine!  I recently got this cover-up and just love everything about it from the print to the tassels!  I am wearing a small.

Cover-Up (also HERE) | Tote


Microfiber Beach Towels– these are so great for the beach because sand doesn’t stick and they dry so quickly.  Perfect for the kids!  funny story we used to bring these to swim team and one of Sterling’s coaches loved his so much she asked if she could buy it from us!


One Piece– wearing a medium, this suit is under $60 and the other pattern is only $16!

Flip Flops- The best flip flops!

Stripe Maxi– This is now 40% off.  I just ordered it because I love a good knit dress.

Pitusa Cover-Up – I have this cover-up in 2 colors.  It is soft like a tee shirt and washes well!

I also have this long version.

Pitusa Cover Up

This cover-up dress is one of my favorites during the summer.  It is cute worn as a maxi or knotted up.  It comes in several colors and is under $100.

Sunglasses-  This is the Andiz style.  They are polarized and under $50- you can use the code COFFEETOREDWINE20  to save 20%.  I now have two pairs of sunglasses from this site and love them both.  Super lightweight and flattering on everyone!

One Piece Suit- Wearing a 6.  This is now out in another great print! It has straps you can add on too if you want.

Off Shoulder Top– now 40% off!  I will pair this with the jean shorts below.  Wearing a size small.

Jean Shorts- I have been living in these JCrew shorts.  I love that they are not crazy short.

Octopus Kites- I ordered these as a surprise for the kids, how cute are they??

Stripe One Piece– this is a great full coverage suit that is also still cute!  Now on sale for $67!  I am in a small!

Large Tote- I love these for traveling they are great for packing stuff!

Resort Maxi Dress– I have this in a few colors from a few years back.  It is a great basic dress and on sale now!

Tee Shirt Dress- easy to toss on over your bathing suit or wear as a dress! On sale for $34!  I am in a size small!

Blouse- Just got this in the new blue color, it will be perfect with my jean shorts.  Wearing an XS runs large!

    Enjoy your trip! If you guys want a new breakfast spot to check out Cast Iron Kitchen is really good! It doesn’t look like much from the outside but it’s cute inside. I use to work in that area and always overlooked it until it was featured on Diners, Drive-in’s & Dives. It’s right on Market St. Have fun!!
