What to pack for a mini vacation


With summer nearly over and fall season quickly approaching, we decided to take one last trip to the beach to soak in the last rays of summer. But, first things first, let’s get packing! This is our guide on what to take with you, and how to put it all together.

One thing I am always guilty of forgetting is a pair of pajamas or lounge outfit. Let that be the first thing you pack so you can get that out of the way and get to the fun stuff. Our Lil Bralette is adorable and gives off a fresh new athletic look. Complement it with our Lil Short to complete your comfiest new matching set:

Next on the list is swim. Since this is just a weekend vacay, one suit is enough for me. I love our Simply Solid Collection. It’s cute, eco-friendly, and goes with everything! Match it with any pair of sandals and you’re good to go:

Even if your weather app tells you that it’s going to be hot, always bring a jacket just in case. I can’t tell you how many times I decided not to pack a jacket and regretted it. Your best bet is to pack a lightweight jacket like our Beat Beach Jacket! And how cute is that embroidery on the back?! Another staple? Our Stoned Mini Skirt! It goes with your bikini tops, tees & outerwear and is perfect for fun-in-the-sun weather:

I’m really into graphic tees at the moment, and Volcom Women’s new collection is just spilling with amazing options. When in doubt, pack them all:

I always pack one statement piece whenever I travel. For me, that statement piece is the Frochickie Pant in the Midnight Green colorway. When matched with a badass graphic tee, you can’t go wrong:

In the beauty department, I can’t leave the house without perfume. My Marc Jacobs roller perfume stick is the perfect size to travel with and smells amazing. Facemasks are all the rage at my house, so I buy them in bulk and throw them in my bag. My hair is a crazy mess, so a mini brush is a must! Plus, it’s so cute and small that I can take it anywhere. Whenever I travel to different temperatures, my hands get super dry, which is why I always carry around great-smelling and refreshing hand lotion. Whenever I need a refresher, I spritz my face with Mario Badescu Facial Spray. It has aloe, herbs, and rosewater, which are my three favorite things! To fake a bronzed glow, I rub NARS bronze shimmery oil on my body. It does the trick without the harmful rays and smells great!

I can’t go on any trip, whether it be a road trip or flying in the air, without something to read. I always pack one good book and one magazine to switch things up. An Instax Mini is my favorite thing to bring. I love how small it is, yet the pictures still come out looking incredible. A tip is to bring extra film because your friends are going to want to keep some memories too!

Last but not least, always pack a cute hat! It’s great sun protection and also gives your outfits an extra boost! Now it’s time to hit the road! Happy traveling xo
