Summer Travel Essentials

Summer Travel Essentials | Packing Tips | Travel Ideas

Summer is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re headed to Florida in July and while we’re there we’ll be doing so many exciting things including a cruise to the Bahamas! Have you ever been on a cruise before? We haven’t, so we can’t wait to see what it’s like.

Now, that the date is quickly approaching we’re beginning to think about what we need to pack and what can get left behind. Below, we’re sharing a list of our absolute MUST HAVE summer travel essentials. These are things that we simply can’t go on vacation without. Let’s get started!!

Fun Summer Outfits

Summer is the perfect time to play with colors, prints, and florals! We always keep the weather in mind when we travel anywhere. Florida will of course be very hot, so we’re packing cute sun dresses, shorts, printed pants, and loose fitting jeans. Lately, we’ve been loving the clothes at H&M. You can find so many great pieces at an affordable price. This skirt is definitely going in the suitcase, but here are some other items we love.


PROTECT YOUR SKIN. That’s it. That’s the tweet.

In all seriousness, please wear your sunscreen and keep you skin safe from the sun rays. There are so many great options out there now that don’t leave you oily and don’t leave an awful purple/white residue for poc. Olay’s Regenerist Whip Mositurizer with SPF 25 is our favorite right now.

Portable Charger

This is a must have for obvious reasons. I like to take pictures while I travel and communicate with family back home and I don’t want to have to worry about my phone dying on long days out. There are so many great options out there in a wide range of prices!

Jewelry & Sunglasses

I love incorporating necklaces, earrings and bracelets into my outfits to tie a look together. I love trying out new, fun pieces in the summer. They can range from large hoop earrings to necklaces with the tiniest jewels. I think the jewelry below could make any outfit pop!

A Book

I simply can’t get on a plane without a good book. I love listening to music, but sometimes it gets hard to hear with the constant ear popping and the overall noise of the plane. I love a good page turner, so let me know if you have any suggestions in the comments!


It usually takes me a while to find a bathing suit, but it was so easy this year. I’m sure it has something to do with my rising self-confidence, but I was also was able to find some great sets at, you guessed it, H&M. I’m linking some below that Carine and I really loved.
