Packing Tips for Your Beach Vacation

Are the sun and sand calling your name? Are you breaking out in a sweat thinking about what to pack for your beach vacation? Looking for some outfit inspiration? Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered.


CCS Tips and Tricks:

  • We love a piece that takes you from day shopping into the evening, like this BCBG dress.  Or these Miu Miu sandals that take you all the way from the beach to dinner!
  • Stick to a neutral base, like white jeans. Then add interest with texture and patterns using pops of color and fun accessories like a bright tunic, your favorite floral sundress, colorful jewelry, and fun sandals.
  • Use versatile pieces that serve double duty. If you can’t wear something with two different pieces, then don’t add it to your bag.
    And here’s the biggie: no more than 3 pairs of shoes. They are heavy and take up way too much space in your suitcase.


We think you’ll love digging into these beachy books recommended by our friends at the Eton Barnes & Noble almost as much as you love digging your toes into the sand. And don’t forget your fashion, beauty and gossip mags!
