Vacations should be fun and relaxing, but we always find packing for said vacation to be a stressful chore! In order to make the process go more smoothly, we have compiled our list of beach vacation essentials! 

IMG-0737Always opt for a cute espadrille or slide that you can throw on with pretty much anything! These fun & whimsical swimmer slides were custom made for julep and are priced at $84. 

A cute graphic t-shirt- such a versatile piece and easy to pack. Throw on with a midi or maxi skirt, or wear casually with a pair of shorts and flip flops. 

We are loving the printed scarf trend- our new Cousin Earl mini scarves $20 are perfect to tie around your neck or in your ponytail. Effortlessly adds that extra something to your outfit!




 We are all about a shift dress in the summer, easy to just throw on & won't stick to you in the heat of the summer. Say yes to embroidery & color! We love this shift can double as a cover-up and a dress. Wear it during the day over a swimsuit to the beach or the pool, then throw it on with a sandal at night for dinner, voilá! You want to choose items that you can get maximum use out of, so as not to overpack. I am a chronic over-packer and recently on a beach vacation I was shammed for having the largest suitcase weighing in at 49 lbs,  (I was only only gone for 4 days) I think the main issue was that my suitcase was too large to begin with, so I felt the need to fill it. My advice, start with a smaller bag and don't wait until the last minute!

If you ever run into me in an airport odds are I will be wearing a hat! Hats are such a key item, it is so important to keep your face out of the sun, and as I have learned the hard way, baseball caps just don't cut it. You want a hat with a full brim. Might as well make a fashion statement while protecting your skin!

We LOVE our brand Johnny Fly, they are made in North Carolina out of fully sustainable materials and are all polarized. Both pairs pictured are priced very reasonably at $120. Once you buy polarized it is hard to go back ( comparable to regular television vs HD) 


A Maxi dress- easy to pack and super versatile. It can work as a dressy piece for a nice dinner out, or be worn with flip flops for a more casual occasion. This eyelet Sail to Sable with pink trim and a chic side slit is such a fresh look for summer $248

Last but not least- a cute swimsuit! I am so happy that one-pieces are having a fullsizeoutput_100f57894060594--C3C41E05-E57D-4BAD-8A6C-88958FFFE2B5.fullsizerenderrenaissance, the right one-piece can be sexy and classy at the same time.
