Packing List for a Mediterranean Beach Vacation
A few weeks ago, I took a short trip to Sardinia, an island in the south of Italy (slightly above Sicily). It is famous for its beaches and amazing weather all year round! I had been wanting to go for a long time and finally, after being in Italy for three years, decided it was about time to go!
Here is a small list of all the items I packed for my trip!
2 blouses (easy to dress up or down)
2 tank tops (one is a body suit)
jean jacket (I love my jean jacket that looks like a blazer it has such a flattering cut and was perfect for spring nights in Sardinia)
Miniskirt/shorts (personally, I don’t like shorts, so I always opt for a skirt which is also more versatile and easy to dress up)
2 summery dresses
Sandals (I know they are hideous but I am obsessed with my Birkenstocks!)
Heels (it is crucial that my dressier pair of shoes is comfortable for walking long distances so I can still explore the city without complaining about my feet hurting)
Sunglasses (the bigger the better)
Summer scarf (This is such a versatile piece. It can be used as a beach cover up and is perfect to keep you warm on chilly evenings)
*A great tip to have sample sizes without spending is to save all the free things you get from stores like Lush and sephora. I find the samples are enough for at least 4 days!
Face wash (I am currently obsessed with the Arbonne RE9 facial cleanser, it smells like you’re bathing in oranges and I LOVE IT!)
*In warm weather I always prefer lighter make up and am a huge fan of switching my foundation over to a tinted moisturizer or bb cream. I am currently using a bb cream from Vichy and it is great for the heat and has spf 20!
Hopefully, this will help you pack a bit faster for your next beach holiday. Have you ever been to Sardinia? We love getting your comments and would love to hear about your experience.
