Travel Light: Vacation Packing

{This post contains affiliate links.}

Hi friends! Here's my attempt at packing light for our trip this week to the beach. It's SO hard for me to pack light. I always want to pack the best of the best, my favorite outfits, pieces and more, but that's not practical when traveling {especially when you're traveling with little ones, too... So here's my go at packing light, and packing everything I need in my carry-on suitcase

{for our road trip} to Florida.

As I'm preparing for our beach getaway, I'm trying to keep one thing in mind, to keep it simple! I'm trying to pick pieces out of my wardrobe which can be easily worn a few ways.

So what am I packing you ask?

We will be at the beach for a week, so here's what I'm packing: two swimsuits and two swimsuit cover-ups. These are lightweight pieces, easy to roll up and pack in your suit case. I'm also packing three pairs of shoes: flip flops, neutral sandals, and pair of neutral tennis shoes. These should go with just about everything I'm packing! I'm also bringing along two light workout tops and a pair of black workout pants {which I'm wearing as we travel}. I'll also be bringing two neutral tees and two pairs of denim shorts, along with a pair of jeans. I've also packed a black dress, a stripe dress, a chambray romper, a denim jacket, military jacket, one pair of pajamas, a large tote bag {perfect to use for travel or while shopping the markets on vacay}, sunglasses, and a packable travel hat.

I'll roll everything up, and pack it away in my suit case. I'm also bringing along a small toiletry bag full of my must-have beauty products {sunscreen of course}, plus a small makeup bag. Less is more! Or so I'm trying to tell myself for our trip...

Packing these pieces gives me a great selection of outfit combos to play around with. I'll be able to mix and match my denim jacket and military jacket with each of the dresses to create a variety of looks, perfect to go from day to night wear. Also, pairing a cardigan with a simple tee and a pair of denim shorts is another great go-to... So many simple and easy looks for vacation!

The struggle is real for wanting to pack EVERYTHING. Trust me, I have been there, so here's to packing light! I hope this helps those of you who are wondering how to pack light, and what you should bring on your next week long beach vacay! I'm sharing a few of my basic must-have pieces below. Grab a coffee and be sure to check them out!
