Hola from Mexico! Before I got here, I went to work putting together my beach vacation packing list. And at the top were some great vacation looks from Amazon!
After completing my beach vacation packing list, I was lucky enough to spend 6 days in the sun and surf over New Year’s.
I tried everything from elegant dresses, to casual ones, to flowy pants, to rompers, and even swim cover-ups. But these are my faves. Here’s a little great news too – the most expensive item is $32.99!
I LOVE this wrap v-neck floral dress! I was a little worried it would be too low cut, but the straps are fully adjustable and there was no need for concern. The wrap style is very flattering and there is an inner underskirt that was perfect for a white dress. It comes in several colors and a couple of slightly different varieties. You will need to give it good ironing when it arrives. But once pressed, I didn’t have trouble with additional wrinkles.
If you’re looking for something casual and a little sexy, this off-the-shoulder romper is the perfect combination! I bought it last summer and have worn it several times with so many compliments! In fact, I wore it for our beach family photo session. I am wearing a size small and it fits TTS. It comes in three colors and it is a great purchase with lots of opportunities for use!
You have to pull out a little bohemian when you’re on vacation!
And this floral shift dress or cover-up hits the mark. It’s long enough to wear as a dress, but I prefer to wear it as a swim suit cover-up. It comes in several colors and I am wearing a size small. It will need a little pressing after arriving and after washing. (Wash and hang dry!). But it’s a perfect little dress for hanging around the resort or cruise ship.
This V-neck asymmetrical floral dress is a flowy and dreamy! It has a shorter underskirt that peeks through the opaque chiffon. The top is lace with criss-cross straps in the back. I am a 34/36 B-C and I am wearing a size small. I had to tighten the straps most of the way up, but felt secure and pretty!
This gorgeous off-the-shoulder side slit dress is knock-out. I wore it to the New Year’s eve party at the resort and received so many compliments. It’s made of a stretchy poly/spandex material that is extremely comfortable. And the ruched front is very flattering to many body types! It comes in several patterns and colors. I am wearing a size small and it fits TTS.
These flowy wide leg pants are spot-on for a breezy beach night. There are two slits up the front of each leg which give them lots of motion when walking. They are easy to dress up or down, depending on the occasion. I am wearing a size small and they fit TTS. There is an elastic waist band in the back and a lining on the inside. I paired it with a simple cap sleeve top that is form fitting and easily tucked in. Perfect for a night out!
