If you ask my husband, he would shrug his shoulders and say, “Just throw a few t-shirts and a few bathing suits in a bag and you’ll be good to go.” What I should mention is that EVERY time we go on vacation, we spend an afternoon shopping for things that my husband “forgot”. I will admit, I am an over-packer, but writing this post really helped me to narrow what to pack for a week at the beach. I’ve created a helpful checklist with all of the essentials and will also follow up with a post on the beauty products/toiletries that I never go away without!
I think the checklist below would be perfect for what you would need for a solid week at the beach. Obviously, if you have plans to stay longer or shorter, you could tweak it a bit, but this is where I would recommend starting. So drag out that suitcase, find a good podcast to listen to, and start making those piles!
And did you think I would create a packing list without sharing recommendations for each bullet point? Ladies, you have come to the right place! Below you will find an entire “suitcase“, plus some fun outfit combinations that you could wear during your vacation.
