Hello, everyone! Welcome back! Next week I have an exciting trip coming up so just like I do for all my travels, I wanted to share some things I’m planning to pack. This would include clothes, accessories, toiletries, and anything else I think will come in handy on this fun trip I’ve got planned. Keep on reading to see what I’ve got packed for my trip to Punta Cana!
Obviously clothing is super important for a vacation because you can’t walk around naked. We’re only staying 4 nights/5 days so I don’t need TOO much, but I will most definitely over pack because of who I am as a person. Some of the things that I’m really focusing on purchasing for this trip are evening outfits. The resort we’re staying at is pretty high end, so I feel like I can get away with looking extra nice for dinners. Plus it’s a baecation, so I want it to be extra special. I decided that rompers and dresses are the way to go for dinners because they are super easy to throw on, while still looking put together. Plus it’s going to be hot and humid so I want to wear something easy to keep me cool too. Below are a few things I’ve had my eye on for a fancy dinner!
This is like a no brainer, honestly. Going to an island means that I’ll need some cutie swimsuits! I plan on spending my days in swimsuits and my nights in the dresses above, because I plan on baking in the sun for 5 days (with spf on don’t you worry). I got a few swim suits before going to Greece earlier this summer and I shared those in my swimsuit collection blog post, linked here. I don’t need too many, but I do want to share a few that I saw on ASOS for less than $30 per piece. I’m loving a neon swimsuit and of course, you can’t go wrong with classic black!
Other than my usual skin care, I don’t plan on wearing TOO much make up or anything but I figured I’d share some of my favorites that I definitely will bring. Currently, Sephora is having 20% off for Rouge members which ends today, August 27! I get my FAVORITE mascara there so I wanted to share. It’s the Dior Diorshow Mascara and the Dior Diorshow Volumizing Lash Primer. I have also been thinking I’d pick up the Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush and Bronzer in Sunkissed because it’s been sold out every time I try to buy it. It’s perfect for a vacation where you don’t want to wear a ton of makeup but you still want to look bronze and glowy.
Some Other Necessities…
Some other things I will definitely be bringing with me is a few different cameras. I love to bring my Polaroid camera on vacation with me because it’s a fun way to capture the memories, plus you get to see the photo right away! Here’s the one I use, it’s the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera. Along with that I always get a multipack of the film because I find it the most cost effective. It’s the matching Fujifilm Instax Mini Film. And last but not least, you know I LOVE to use a disposable camera so of course, I got the Fujifilm QuickSnap Flash 400 Disposable 35mm Camera. I usually buy these in a 3 pack also for cost effectiveness.
