What I’m Packing // Turks & Caicos

Mike and I are headed to Turks & Caicos soon with two of our good friends. For a little island fashion inspiration, here are some of the things I'm packing to take with me.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Mike and I are headed to Turks & Caicos soon with two of our good friends. I’m so ready for an island vacation! It’s actually come up really fast—I didn’t have a plan to start this blog, and since all that happened in the last 3 weeks, this trip has suddenly appeared super-quickly! Here are some of the things I’m packing to take with me.

Le Specs Polarized Sunnies
I was looking for a lighter pair of sunnies that wouldn’t completely break the bank. I like the neutrality of these and they are really cute on!



Seychelles Sandals
I just ordered these and haven’t worn them yet—but they seem like perfect vacation sandals. Love the leather fringe and gold detail!

Moonlight Pajamas
Can’t beat a good pair of pjs! Excited about these—so soft and super casual!



Serefina Flutter Tassel Earrings
These earrings are available in several color combinations. They are gorgeous in person—the gold tops have some sparkle to them. I’m wearing them with a simple black dress to add some color and pop.



Becca Color Code Halter Top
Love Becca swimsuits—this color is one of my go-tos, and it comes in black also.



Billabong Southern Border Dress
This dress is really cute paired with gladiator sandlas. Perfect for an island dinner out!



Gemma Sandal by Sam Edelman
I got these to wear with the dress above, but they are super-versatile and I can tell they’ll be on rotation all spring and summer!

O’Neill Celeste Cover Up
This is the cutest, easy cover up and at such a good price! It was sold out in many places but I found it at Amazon, and linked it here. This comes in several other really good colors—a dusty pink, deep teal, and a pretty vanilla.



Gorjana Nora Earrings
Love these light delicate earrings to add some sparkle to any outfit. (And in general, I buy pretty much anything Gorjana!)


Racerback Shift Dress
I know this dress is typically not something you’d take on a beach vacation, but it is a great backdrop for any colorful statement earrings or necklace, is inexpensive, and packs well with no wrinkles. What more do you want?!



Rebecca Minkoff Leather Wristlet
I love my girl Rebecca Minkoff. Her bags are always a home run—they have enough detail to be interesting but not too much to overwhelm an outfit. This clutch was an easy buy and will go with so many things year-round.



O’Neill Nola Kimono
Another piece that seemed to be sold out everywhere else I looked, but again, Amazon pulled through! This is a throw-on kimono that will be super cute for the beach or pool…



Baggu Canvas Tote
I’m a fan of Baggu, I have a few of their canvas bags and am always happy with them and feel like I carry them for several years. For this trip, I was looking for a bag I could take on the plane as my carry-on tote, as well as use on the beach. Done!



I’ll send our recs on Turks & Caicos, and update you on our trip with pics when we return! If you know of something we should be seeing (or somewhere we should be eating) while we’re there, please let me know!

Have a great week, friends.
