Tropical Vacation – Fashion Sneak Peek

January 22, 2016


Guess what!? Tomorrow I am off to the tropical island of Curacao for a week’s vacation! I am SO excited. I started packing on boxing day haha! (..seriously though…)

Today I wanted to show you some of the items I’ll be taking with me (and why I think they’re important to pack for a tropical vacation!)

Also, I am excited to announce that while I am away I will be having three fantastic guest bloggers posting here on LLB! They are 3 of my personal favorite fashion bloggers so I cannot wait for them to post. I wanted to make sure you, my lovely readers, weren’t left without content! Be sure to come back on Monday and see who the first one is – you are going to love her. Also, follow along on instagramtwitter to get photos & updates from my trip

Packing for a Tropical Vacation 


Similar Bikini Top // Bikini Bottom

y starting point when packing tropical is always my swimsuits! I figure I‘m going to spend more time in them than any actual items of clothing so I might as well spend the most time picking my favorites (and picking coverups, accessories, etc. to coordinate with my swimwear!)


Similar Dresses- (1), (2), (3)

I always pack one casual summery dress for a tropical vacation. Something light and breathable that can be worn for a day of sightseeing


 Sports Bra // Similar Workout Shorts(1), (2)

I indulge and laze around most of the time while on vacation, but I do like to have at least one workout outfit on me. You likely won‘t find me in a gym while vacationing, but I like to be able to a run on the beach or even some yoga/abs by the pool in the mornings. A simple workout outfit is therefore a must! 


Similar Tops- (1), (2), (3) // Similar Shorts- (1), (2)

Similar Looking Romper that I LOVE

I like to have one casual outfit consisting of comfortable shorts and a top. This is perfect/necessary for a day of exploring. 


 Similar Dress 

In addition to my one casual dress, I always pack one slightly fancier dress for dinners, evenings on the beach, grabbing a late night drink, etc. You may remember me showcasing this dreshere– it was definitely one of my favorite outfits from last summer, and I am still so in love with the fit and pattern. This was my first Lilly dress and I can’t get over the amazing fit/quality


 Monogram Necklace // Earrings

Last but not least I pack some jewelry. I go pretty easy on the jewelry when I travel- especially when travelling somewhere tropical where I know I will be in an out of a chlorinated pool, salt water, and be covered in sunscreen. Not exactly a fun environment for your jewelry! That being said, I pack 3-5 items that I think are pretty durable. The monogram necklace is perfect because it’s acrylic!

Have a fantastic week everyone! I know my guest posters will take awesome care of you while I am away and I will see you back here in a week and a half!
