With a forecast of rain all week here in San Diego, I’m definitely longing for a warm weather getaway! While I love layering and all the coziness of Fall & Winter, after Christmas I am ready to break out the brighter colors! I have several friends that are jet setting off to warm weather beaches in the next few weeks [my girl Cortney being one of them!] so out of jealousy, I wanted to search for all the new vacation goodies! Some of my favorite retailers – Shopbop & Nordstrom – have released tons of new arrivals that are perfect if you have a vacation to a tropical paradise coming up!

 

If you’ve booked a beachy getaway, here are a few must-haves for your travels:

  1. Bright Sunnies: There’s nothing that pairs better with your swimsuit than a fun pair of sunglasses. There are so many cute options with pinks, oranges and blues!
  2. Fun Hair Accessories: This is a huge trend right now! There are lots of printed scrunchies and headbands to shop. Perfect for lounging beachside!
  3. Colorful Coverup: Bindya is one of my favorite brands for swim suit coverups! They have bright colors & pom details!
  4. Bold Statement Earrings: I am normally a fan of minimal jewelry in the pool but there is just something eye catching about a cute statement earring with your swimsuit! Especially since your hair is normally pulled back or in a braid, it’s just a fun accessory to wear!
  5. THE ‘It’ Bag: The Cult Gaia bags were the bags last year. They have so many great new styles out so you can be sure they will be everywhere this year too!
  6. Printed Phone Case: You will be taking your phone on vacation for all of the picture opps, so you might as well add a cute, bright new case to it too!
  7. Convenient Travel Accessories: Totally sets the mood for a beach vacay right? Keep everything organized for your trip!

Hi, friends!  I recently had the BEST weekend with my blogger besties Cortney & Sara. We kicked off the holiday season with a trip to the National Harbor located near Washington, D.C. It was so much fun & we found tons of things to do! If you live in the D.C. area or ever travel here around Christmas, this is the place to be. It’s perfect for a romantic weekend trip with your husband but also super family friendly if you want to bring the kids along too! Since everything is in one small area, you can just valet the car & not need it again until you’re leaving. OR, if you’re flying into D.C., choose the Reagan airport as it’s just a few miles [& an easy Uber ride!] away! I have so many must-do’s to share that I’m putting everything into these categories below: See, Savor, Stay & Shop! View Post
