Caroline shares her packing tips and tricks for summer travel

It’s been surprisingly cold here in Houston which has us even more ready to travel somewhere warm over Spring Break! We are taking a quick trip to Florida and already planning our poolside outfits and daydreaming about soaking up some sun! When it comes to packing for the beach and other warm weather destinations, we like to keep our suitcase light with a few swimsuits and cover ups that can also work for dinner. Read on below for our favorite finds this season to help make packing a breeze. Happy shopping!


This time of year it always feels like we haven’t seen the sun in forever, so we gravitate towards one-pieces and bikinis that have a bit more coverage. We’re especially loving ruffles and gingham prints on swimsuits right now.  J.Crew is always a go-to for classic swimwear and Shopbop is great for fashion-forward styles and bold prints.

Cover Ups You Can Wear to Dinner

We’ve seen so many chic caftans and cover ups that are perfect for both lounging by the pool and dressing up for dinner. These styles are perfect for low maintenance traveling, and are especially ideal if you’re enjoying a laid back Spring Break vacation.

Straw Accessories

There is no shortage of wicker and straw accessories to shop right now, and we love all the colors, shapes, and sizes! From wide brim hats to wicker mini bags, these accessories will give your existing spring wardrobe a trendy upgrade.

Two Pairs of Sandals

We like to pack at least one pair of slides that can be worn to the beach or pool and one pair of comfortable wedges that can dress up our dinner outfits.
