What's in my suitcase

I am just a wee bit excited for our upcoming cruise, as we haven't cruised since before the virus that shall not be named. I've traveled extensively for work and we've been to the Bahamas and St. Maarten, but we flew in and stayed at a resort so it'll be fun to go back to a "floating resort" that visits several different islands. 

I picked up some new bathing suits, cover ups, dresses for dinner, a new beach bag that claims to be water and sand resistant (I'll report back!), my favorite mineral sunscreen and of course bringing my super handy $11 travel holder that slips over the handle of my suitcase to hold coffee, water, snacks, my phone etc... 

I also shopped my closet, and am bringing the gown I wore to my cousin's wedding in Cape Cod last fall for one of the formal nights, my hot hair brush (since the blow dryers on cruise ships are notoriously weak and take FOREVER!), this cut out dress that I wore to a local event last summer and this fedora that also has UPF50 sun protection. Yes please!

Bon voyage! Are you heading anywhere fun this spring/summer?


  1. We are planning a 10th anniversary trip and maybe to some of those islands. I may have to ask you for some advice on it.

  2. SO Fun! Have the best time, friend! We booked Palm Springs for my bday in May, Vegas for our anniversary in Oct, and possibly a Maui trip this June :)



  3. You're going to have such a good time! Always fun to shop for a tropical getaway, that's for sure!


  4. Loving all of these outfits! I'm soooo ready for permanent warmer weather so I can start wearing all of my spring dresses and shorts and stuff. I hope y'all have the best time on your cruise!

  5. Love all the outfits! I have enjoyed seeing pictures of your cruise on stories!
