10 Things I’m Packing on Our Next Beach Vacation

I’ve got such a fun round-up for you all today! This is what I’m packing on my next beach vacation — complete with cute bikinis and summer dresses.  J and I head to Mexico in a week, so I thought I’d share some tried and true swimwear, dresses, and activewear that always make it into my suitcase.  It makes packing *pretty* easy when I’ve got these go-to staple items!

First few items that make it into my suitcase are from L*Space  (are we surprised by this?).  L*Space bikinis are some of my favorites and have such cute outfits that can be taken from beach to play.  This bikini is hands down one of my most favorite ones I’ve ever worn (this is not an exaggeration) — it keeps everything tucked in yet somehow makes your cheeks look great! and this little bikini is a new find that is definitely making the cut for this upcoming vacay.

If you frequent A Southern Drawl, then you know that Playa Lucila has some of my favorite summer dresses and tops.  The fun festive prints and high quality (yet lightweight) materials make these a great option for vacation or summer, in general. This dress is still in stock, but goes out of stock frequently so snag it while you can!

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: Beach Riot makes such amazing activewear AND swimwear! It’s the best of both worlds.  Their prints are always super fun too and you’ll never get bored wearing them.

These sunglasses are also ones that I’m definitely packing.  I don’t think I’ve ever gone anywhere without them ha! They fit everyone’s face shape (including Jordan’s!) and are so sleek.  Le Specs has a great variety of sunnies, so if this shape doesn’t suit you, there are tons of others to choose from!

WeWoreWhat is a bit of a splurge, but I stand by it! The fabric is unmatched and I’ve never felt so confident in a bikini before. They tend to sell out quickly in sizes, but if you can snag your size, it’s totally worth it!

Also, my fave Amalfi hoop earrings from Luv AJ go with me everywhere! I honestly think I wear them every single day. I might just have to snag a new pair for this vacation too!

I mean, just hands down the best pajamas in the world. So soft (but not too soft and NOT fleece) —  structured (but not too structured) –and the most fun prints, Roller Rabbit definitely is a fave of mine.

EEEK!! You guys, I’m so excited that my sarong by Norma Kamali is back in stock! I’ve waited SO long for this!!! It also is available in black and doubles as a shawl in the evening.  It provides so much versatility on a trip!

A classic little white dress from WAYF is the perfect vacation date night outfit. It even comes in a midi and a top, which is available in so many other colors.  This dress never gets old!

Last, but not least, the most festive vacation dress I ever did snag by Sundress (are we surprised by this?).  This cute dress is back in stock and I’m wearing an XS/S.  It’s one of those dresses that always gets compliments due to the beautiful vibrant colors and adorable poms!

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.
