When packing for a vacation, women can be guilty of packing much more than they need. When in reality, there are only a few key items that you need. Particularly if you are staying at a resort, which usually has everything on site that you could possibly need.
By minimizing the amount of clothing you pack, you lessen your chances of leaving something behind, or having to dig through piles of clothes you don’t even like that much just to get to the ones you really do.
Simplify your vacation style by packing these essentials, and you’ll be happy you did it.

What kind of a picturesque vacation would it be without a photo of you in a big sun hat on the beach?
A sunhat is not only practical to keep your face protected from the sun, but it serves as a “cherry on top” to any outfit.
Additionally, it’s great for those days you simply don’t feel like washing your hair and you want to run straight to the beach. Toss your hair up and stuff it under a hat. Voila!
A Maxi Dress
This flowy favorite is one of the biggest vacation must-haves of all. This item of clothing is great in hot weather because of its flowy silhouette and airy construction.
It’s great for a casual daytime lunch or a nighttime cocktail. You can’t go wrong with that! And don’t forget the extra perk of being able to hide a full belly after a big meal or cocktails!!
Skip the flip flops on your next vacation and opt for a pair of sandals instead. Sandals are much more practical on the beach since they don’t kick sand up at you after every step.
They look great with a pair of jean shorts, or elegant with a maxi dress. This versatile and comfortable shoe is definitely a vacation necessity for your suitcase.
A Thin Long-sleeved Shirt

Prepare for a potentially chilly night and bring a thin long sleeved shirt. Better safe than sorry!
