If you’re prepping for a summer getaway soon, I have a list of must-haves that you have to pack on any tropical vacay. Five must-haves, to be exact!

1. A Flattering Swimsuit
Obviously the #1 beach vacay essential is a swimsuit! Find a style that makes you feel like the ocean goddess you are. There are so many different flattering styles out there, from tan-faking hot pink suits to figure-flattering one pieces.

2. A Breezy, Wear-Everywhere Dress
Keep your carry-on light with a versatile dress that you can wear everywhere from afternoons poolside to evening drinks. I love an off-the-shoulder style.

3. Cute & Comfy Sandals
Show off that pedicure with a pair of trendy—and comfortable—sandals! A gladiator style or a pair with embellished trimmings is perfect for a footwear statement.

4. A Summery Woven Purse
This is THE trend of the summer. Everyone’s toting around woven purses, and since they’re so cute and useful, it’s easy to see why! Carry all your beach essentials with you in a chic woven tote.

5. A Floppy Hat
Protect your gorgeous face from the sun’s harsh rays with a floppy hat. I particularly love hats with added details, like fun pom poms or sassy embroidered phrases!
