This Wednesday, I’m heading down to Florida to spend a week with my family! My sister is on her spring break and my parents rented a house down in Naples, so this was the perfect opportunity for a getaway from NYC.
I usually have all my summer clothes at my parents house in Rhode Island, as well as all of our suitcases and travel gear. When I go home, I usually just use a duffle bag to carry my clothes and other necessities, so I felt like this was the perfect time to invest in my own suitcase. I had been thinking about splurging on an away suitcase, which is all the rage these days. I ended up finding a larger, and far less expensive Calpak suitcase at TJ Maxx. Along with my Dagne Dover carryall, these will be all the luggage I’m using for this trip!
There is so much to do to prepare, such as packing, laundry, nails, sugaring, etc. So for this trip I decided to use my free spray tan at Sugared + Bronzed when I go for my sugaring appointment!
In terms of clothing, I’ll be bringing some classics, as well as some athletic wear. I love to spend my days doing some form of exercise, along with beach, pool, shopping, eating, you name it. I have to be prepared for anything!
I got this suit from Shein last summer and it is cute and simple. I would recommend sizing up if you aren’t a stick, because although the small fit fine, I feel like I could have taken the medium and been fine. The reviews are very important on Shein, so definitely read them carefully.
I also got this fun bikini from Shein last summer, which is a little cheeky, but not too much! I felt like the small in this suit was better since the straps are not adjustable.
Last year in Florida, I got these jean shorts from Principle Denim and they are the best! Not too short, but short enough and a great color. They are currently 50% off, so I might have to buy them in white as well.
Lilly luxletic leggings, because workout Lilly is amazing! They also have a whole new golf line, which is super cute and easier to move around in.
Always a go-to, I have a few pairs of these lululemon speed up shorts which are great to throw on for a quick walk in the morning.
Lilly’s Palazzo Pants have also been a long time favorite of mine! If you are short, you’ll most likely have to get them hemmed, even with wedges on, these pants are still to long on me!
Madewell’s T-shirts are classics that are easy to pair with blue/white denim, as well as more beachy attire.
I love to pair my favorite Lilly Palazzo pants with this Scalloped Cami from J.Crew Factory. The pink goes with so many Lilly bottoms!
Aerie makes cute and comfy rompers, and while mine is from a few years ago, this one is cute and the same style.
The Mila Shift Dress from Lilly is another classic which I always bring along in my suitcase because it’s perfect for dressing up or down for dinner or a fancier event.
Vineyard Vines really surprised me with a cute, soft material romper last summer. Here’s their more updated look.
True life. Soludos Palma Platform Sandals are my favorite summer shoes. I have them in both colors and they are super wearable and very comfy! I hate heels more than anything, but I love the way they look, so I ordered these. The more flat wedge makes them the perfect shoe for literally all day wear.
Still on the Soludos train… these Ciao Bella Smoking Slippers are another one of my favorites that will make the trip with me!
Jack Rogers Platinum Hamptons Sandals are another shoe I wear regularly in the summer and on vacation. The platinum sandals are my favs because they aren’t quite silver, but they aren’t quite gold. Matches with everything!
