I Won't Be Leaving For My February Beach Vacay Without These 6 Things In My Bag

I am headed to the Bahamas next month for a much-needed week of sun & fun (okay, I’m traveling with a 9-month old for the first time–so it’s not going to be ALL sun & fun). And because I’m me, I’ve already started obsessing about what to bring for the trip (diapers, yes, but what is mom going to wear??).

I absolutely love vacation style: everything looks good because you’re tan, flat sandals are acceptable almost everywhere, your beauty routine is just putting on sunscreen in the morning and finger-scrunching beachy waves at night, you get to wear bright colors & prints all the time (with some white jeans thrown in occasionally) and the accessories are things like oversized hats and sky-high wedge sandals and raffia clutches. It’s seriously my favorite look.

So, what does a beach-lover pack in her luggage, so she’ll look fly from the moment she lands to her very last beach day? Click through the slideshow above to find out what my essentials are–you can basically just make your packing list based off them.

HAVE YOU PACKED YET?
