I am a big fan of packing dresses for vacations because they are versatile. Dresses can be worn to dinner, exploring the ship or resort, over your swimsuit as a cover-up, etc. When shopping for vacation, I usually look for bright colors and fun patterns.
- Maxi dresses like this stunning floral print (in hot pink) or this smocked tie-strap (in lake blue or burnt brick) are perfect for wearing to dinner with your favorite sandals or wedges.
- Mini dresses like this hot pink tiered mini dress or this belted dress (in pink) can double as a cover-up or be worn on their own. Throw it over your swimsuit to go grab lunch or browse in a local shop!
- Try a midi dress if you don’t love showing so much leg! I love this one.
- A tee shirt dress like this one paired with your favorite casual sneaker and a light jacket is the perfect recipe for an effortless and comfortable travel outfit.
Tops & Bottoms
I love bringing tops and bottoms that I can mix and match depending on what activity we choose to do each day while we are on a trip! I usually bring a pair of denim and white shorts, white pants, jeans, and a skirt for bottoms. These are good base items that I know will pair well with all of my tops.
- I always bring my favorite camisole. It pairs so well with shorts, pants, and skirts!
- I love fun tops like this one and this one!
- I am a fan of packing skirts because they are easy to dress up or down. I love this one, and it looks great with sneakers, sandals, or wedges!
- If I know I’m going to be doing a lot of active things like hiking, playing golf, etc., then I know I need to bring some activewear like this tennis skirt and tennis shoes.
- These shorts are great!
Shoes & Accessories to Pack
Accessories are a fun and easy way to add some personality to your outfits on vacation because they don’t take up a lot of room in your luggage.
- This pair of sunglasses look much more expensive than they are (under $15!).
- These earrings are perfect for a resort!
- I love these sandals; they can be paired with so many outfits!
- This clutch is perfect for dinner, and you can toss it into your beach or pool bag during the daytime.
- Don’t forget a pair of wedges in case you decide to go to a dressier restaurant!
Swimsuits for Vacation
I love one-piece swimsuits because I think they are so classic and flattering!

Beauty For the Heart–The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Psalm 19:1
Truth: We need to develop eyes to see God throughout our day. He will give us glimpses through the beauty of nature, a blooming flower, a glorious sunrise, or a soft snowfall.
We can also put reminders in our home to trigger us to think of God; our favorite Bible sitting by our chair, worship music playing, and even artwork with scripture.
Don’t let a day go by without seeing God at work!
Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!
