There’s nothing better than getting through the work week and realizing that a weekend getaway is around the corner. Spontaneous trips are the best way to clear your mind and to change things up! It’s not too late to fit in a beach trip this summer. To prepare for the weekend, I had to make my list of must haves. I wanted to share some of the items I have purchased as well as some of my everyday favorites of what I plan to bring to Jekyll Island this weekend.

1.) Dresses

If you’re planning a beach getaway, you have to make sure you’re going to bring some dresses! Dresses are great for cover ups, heading to dinner, and exploring the town. I also love to bring dresses because you don’t have to put much thought in to your outfit! Just add a few accessories and you’re good to go. Check out my latest dress purchases from Urban Outfitters.

2.) Swimsuits

What’s a beach/summer getaway without a swimsuit??! I have been obsessed with one piece swimsuits over the past couple of years! I think they are super chic and flattering for all body types. Check out this one from Asos

3.) Beach Bag

Your beach bag can be chic also! I found this mesh tote from Urban Outfitters and I thought it was going to be perfect for this trip! It comes in two colors and I think I’m going to purchase the other color.

4.) Sunscreen

I cannot stress enough how important it is to apply sunscreen! For my face, I have been using the Renergie Lift Multi Firming and Dark Spot Corrector Sunscreen from Lancome. I love that it doesn’t feel too greasy and it doesn’t leave a white cast! I’m also going to bring the Glossier Invisible Shield! I purchased this last week and it has been on my radar for a long time.

We cannot forget the sunscreen for the rest of the body. I recently picked up the Sun Bum Sunscreen Spray from Ulta! I always used Neutrogena’s sunscreen in the past, but it’s time to switch it up.


5.) Vlogging Camera

Did you guys know that I have a YouTube Channel? If you didn’t know, click here to subscribe! I love bringing my vlog camera with me to capture moments to share with you guys! I recently purchased the Canon G7x Mark II and I’m obsessed with it!
