Somewhere Sipping Margs on a Beach: A Capsule Wardrobe

I don’t know about you, but I miss vacation so much! I miss the sun. I miss the beach. I miss the feeling of just being able to relax and escape. And right now I want nothing more than a week-long vacay somewhere (on a beach, preferably) while sipping many margaritas. I am a sun babe by nature and will take any chance I can get to soak up some rays.

Vacation Dreamin’: A Travel Capsule Wardrobe For The Beach

For the past few years, my bestie and I have been planning a huge girls trip so we could do just that — sit on a beach drinking margs with our gal pals while celebrating our 30th’s! We are keeping our fingers crossed that our Dirty Thirty in the DR will still happen in May, but if not, any beach will do. Heck, a kiddie pool in a warm climate will do at this point…

This capsule wardrobe is the ultimate dream for what I would wear on a beach vacay. It’s a little bit sexy, a little bit sophisticated, and all I will be dreaming about wearing for the next few months! BONUS: many of these picks are sustainable** and/or offered in plus-sizes.

This capsule wardrobe is just what we're dreaming about to wear on a beach vacay. A bit sexy, a bit sophisticated, a bit sustainable & inclusive sizing.

  1. Such a fun post – love it all!!! I’ve been eyeing a lot of reformation pieces too…but I’m a little scared of the sizing. I’m a solid size 12 so a little iffy on how to order. Here’s to going we can all travel again soon!

  2. So I have kind of a big head and a ton of hair, and I recommend the J Crew packable straw hats because they come in sizes! The wide brim one has served me well 🙂
