I hope y’all had a great long weekend! We were blessed with amazing weather and enjoyed lots of time outside. Can’t wait to share pics with you on this week’s Wednesday Whereabouts post. Be prepared for photo overload! I cannot believe it, but I’m headed out on a girls’ trip THIS coming weekend! Hard to believe it’s already here. Today, I’m sharing my top ten tropical picks with you that I’ll be taking on my trip. I’ve been shopping, trying on, and narrowing down my absolute faves that will definitely be coming along in my suitcase. These are tried and true pieces that I plan on wearing now, and on into summer. Enjoy!
As you know, my Tory Burch flip flops were sadly discontinued. I was on the hunt for a new pair and tried out these Havaianas that I actually used to wear a few years ago, before I discovered the TBs. They’re great, a little more on the flimsy side than the TB ones, but they work for me. I have them in both the rose gold and black colors. Perfect for the pool and beach.
Love the colors in this bikini so much. I say only swim top because I tried out the bottoms are they were just a bit too skimpy for me. I’ll plan on wearing another solid color or printed bottom with it. If you know me, I love mix-matching my bikinis anyway.
Okay, so in all honesty I tried on so many swimsuits before this trip. Nothing like trying on suits in February. It definitely gave me motivation to keep up the exercises and eating healthy to be better in shape when the weather warms up. But this swimsuit was a keeper! The bottoms weren’t too skimpy either. It fits true to size. I went with a medium on the bottoms. The bottoms are so popular they’re already almost sold out at J.Crew, but they’re available here in all sizes.
These sunnies are super fun and a little different than other ones I own. Can’t wait to bring them on the trip with me. They’re currently on sale too!
I found these similar ones that are at a lower price point, if you want the look for less. Only $12!
This dress will definitely be in my suitcase. Cannot wait to wear it when I’m there! This was probably the very first “MUST” that I knew would be traveling with me! I’m wearing a small.
Another dress that I knew early on that would be coming with me is this one. It’s so simple and easy, but just so pretty too. You honestly don’t have to dress it up with much jewelry. The colors are pretty enough on their own. I’m wearing a small.
I know, I know. It’s a visor. But y’all it is so cute! I’m hoping it survives the plane ride in my suitcase, and doesn’t get too smooshed. It’s the cutest little hat and does it’s job covering your face. And you can’t beat $29! I’m all for big floppy hats, but they just never stay on my head securely.
These sandals are going to be tricky to pack, as they take up so much space, but they’ll be worth it. I plan on wearing them with most of my dresses not just this weekend, but throughout the summer too.
I had a hard time deciding whether to bring these glitter sandals with me or these criss cross ones. Love both so much. I know they’ll both be worn so much this summer, so I decided to go with these glitter ones for this trip. And just a heads up, if you’re interested in them, order soon. They’ve almost sold out here and are also available here.
If I had to choose one of my all-time favorite cover-up styles, it would be this one. I seriously have them in so many color ways. They’re just such an easy toss on and I get so many compliments on them. I’ve had some of you in the past ask if they’re machine-washable, as they look like the tassel accents may unravel. I’ve always washed them and hung them to dry and have never had any problems with the tassels. Don’t let the length of the coverup on the model fool you. It’s not that short on. How pretty is this new purple/pink color way this season?

So excited that our trip is almost here!
I do have to admit, I have a Lilly order that should arrive either today or tomorrow. I wanted to take advantage of the promo from this past weekend. Did y’all score any goodies with all the sales going on this past weekend? After I try everything on, some of those pieces may be coming with me too. We’ll see! I just can’t help shopping for warm weather clothes. There’s just so much good stuff out there right now. I have no doubt I’ll be adding more to my suitcase. Just not quite sure what yet!
