Weekend Beach Trip Packing List

It is officially summer in 15 (ish) days - if you haven't been counting down for a whole year all ready, then I suggest you start now! One of my favorite parts of summer are improntu weekend get-aways. Whether they're with friends of family, I always end up having an amazing time and making some incredible memories. Today I thought I would share a quick packing list for a beach weekend. Obviously this list should be modified to fit your specific trip, but these are some of the essentials.


  • 2-3 Bathing Suits (to make sure you always have a dry one) 
  • Beach Cover Up (I suggest one with shoulders to protect you from the sun + you'll be able to wear it inside most beach restaurants) 
  • 1 Pair Beach Shoes
  • 1 Nice Pair Of Shoes 
  • 2 Shirts (day) 
  • 2 Shirts (night)
  • 1 Pair of Nice Jeans
  • 1 Skirt 
  • 1 Pair Shorts
  • 1 Sweater/Cardigan 
  • 1 Pair Pajamas 
  • Socks/Bras/Underwear (enough for the whole weekend) 
  • Workout Attire 


  • Large Beach Bag 
  • Toiletries (makeup, razor, shampoo, conditioner, etc) 
  • Sunglasses
  • Beach Hat 
  • Snacks 
  • Magazines/Books 
  • Killer Playlist 
  • Cooler (If you can manage to fit it, this is perfect for bringing your own snacks and avoiding overpriced beach food) 
  • Cash (many beach side places are cash only) 
  • Phone + Charger 

As I said, this is list should just be used as a guide to help you pack. If dresses and rompers are more your style than shorts (ahem, moi), then pack those! You want to feel comfortable and cute the whole weekend, so don't be someone who packs their entire closet becaue "well, maybe..." (again, ahem moi). Thanks so much for checking out this packing list - I hope you all have a fabulous time wherever your summer adventures take you. Don't forget to let me know anything else you like to pack, because my suit case still has tons of room (not really, but a girl can dream).
