One of my readers requested this beach vacation packing guide video and I thought it was such a great idea. I filmed it before I left for Mexico and finally put it all together (Mexico vlog coming soon!). There were a few small things I would have done different (only one tee, one pair of earrings, one hat, plus a light scarf), but I also put together a post-trip packing list guide as well that you are welcome to download or Pin to your vacation board (we all have them!). Hope this is helpful and please let me know if you have any questions!

    This is such a great list! I’m obsessed with straw accessories right now (that Janessa Leone looks AMAZING on you) and love the beach bag you choose for the post-trip packing list guide – do you know what brand it is? It’s slightly different from the one linked! Thanks so much!

    Great video! Simple is definitely best, especially on beach vacations. Highly recommend checking out packing cubes – seriously changed my life! I can’t quite figure out exactly why but you can fit so much more – and everything stays organized. Especially great for vacations with multiple locations.

    Great list!! I was wondering what was the brand of luggage you’re using?
