A couple months ago, Will and I were over the winter weather and craving some time away from work, recharging in the sunlight. So, we booked a trip to Cancun at an all-inclusive resort. It was the beautiful, relaxing, much-needed break we needed, though we left wishing that we could have stayed another day or two! Right after the trip we went full steam ahead on our home remodel, and if you’ve followed any of the updates on Instagram, you know that it’s been adventure. Now that things are finally starting to calm down, I am sharing everything I packed for the trip! My hope is that this round-up will help you figure out what to what to wear on your next beach vacation. So, here is what I packed along with my outfits!
What to Wear & Pack
My Beach Trip Outfits
I don’t know about you, but I often over pack for beach trips. Maybe it’s because warm-weather clothes take up so little space. Whatever the reason, this was the first beach trip where I felt like I didn’t over pack and I had the right items with me.
We were in Cancun for five days and four nights, and I had an outfit for each evening and a few swimsuits to rotate. I love the blue and white, flowy maxi dress I found on Amazon. It was easily my favorite dinner outfit, and i still can’t believe it’s only $23! My favorite bathing suit has to be the smocked number, pictured above with my green twill shorts. It was such a cute suit and super flattering. I am sure I’ll be loving it for many years. The other piece I am obsessed with is my white, cutoff shorts. They have the best fit. If you’re in the market for a new pair this summer, I highly recommend them.
I would love to hear how you pack for beach trips in particular. What are your go-to pieces to wear at the beach? Is there anything I wore that you have too? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Hi friends! It’s been a while, but I have returned. I am officially a “Mrs.” now and am settling back into the real world after our wedding and honeymoon. Will and I honeymooned in Antigua last week, right after our wedding. So, today I would like to share what I wore on our honeymoon for some beach trip outfit inspiration. The weather in Antigua was partly cloudy and had a high temperature in the low 80s every day. With the a constant beach breeze, it never felt super hot. This meant I was able to comfortably wear shorts and sleeveless tops when I wasn’t in my bathing suit – what more do you need when at the beach!?
Now, before we got to Antigua, we had an unplanned detour in Miami due to a flight delay. We were happy to stay in Miami for a day and get some relaxing pool time in. Thankfully our airline and hotel in Antigua pushed our travel arrangements back so our trip was not shortened. The outfit below I wore in Miami after some pool time and right before venturing to South Beach. My light pink crossbody bag from Sole Society has been a favorite piece of mine this spring. It was perfect for traveling as well since it does not take up much room and the blush shade goes with everything!
Once in Antigua, my main outfit was a bathing suit with a cover-up since we were on the beach or a boat everyday. The resort we stayed at required more dressy attire for dinner, so I wore the floral dress below from Lulus. I got this dress specifically for our honeymoon and I loved how the colors mimicked all the bright flowers that bloom in Antigua.
If you are interested in Will’s outfit details, you can find everything listed here. Below are a few other favorite pieces I wore during our honeymoon and travels. I like to keep my beach trip outfits pretty simple so mixing and matching for different looks takes a minimal effort. The floral sweatshirt linked below is a major favorite. It is so cozy and was perfect for the plane rides.
My Beach Trip Outfit Necessities
Now that I am back in D.C. I cannot wait for summer weather so I can wear these items again. Do you have any go-to beach trip outfits or pieces you love for beach vacations? What did you wear on your honeymoon? Whether you are beach-bound or not, I would love to hear about the new outfits you have picked out for spring or upcoming summer vacations.
