Vacation Essentials.


Prior to heading to Tulum for vacation, I popped in to Old Navy, thinking I’d load up on cute tank tops + tees for the beach {Tulum is super low key and not fancy at all, if you are planning a trip.} But I ended up walking out with so much more – like the cute striped coverup that I’m wearing above {it’s only $20!} or the white eyelet dress that I ended up wearing twice during the trip – first as a beach coverup and then out to dinner.

What I packed: Striped Coverup {pictured above} // White Eyelet Dress // Sun Hat {currently sold out} // Covered Faux-Leather Flip Flops // Scarf {I tied it around my beach bag} // Polka Dot Bikini Top // Polka Dot Bikini Bottoms

More Old Navy vacation favorites…




{This dress is quite the multi-tasker – it is equally cute as a coverup  or dress. I’m also wearing this pretty Gold & Gray Tassel Necklace – a little bit obsessed with it!}


These sandals are so comfy and I love love love this bikini! {Note: it’s a bit more neon in person, which only makes me like it more.}



{I know you’ll ask about the bag – I bought it last time I was in Tulum, at the Coqui Coqui. Haven’t been able to find a similar version online yet, but I love tying the watercolor scarf around the handle….}

    Ugh… those photos make me want to go on vacation IMMEDIATELY! I love how you were confident enough to lose the makeup and glam for a truly relaxing time away. I’m packing now for a beach vaca in 2 weeks and took mental notes… i.e. Good cover up = appropriate casual dinner attire!

    Wow, that looks so amazing! I got a “coverup” from Old Navy once, but it looks like a Tory Burch tunic, so I sport it proudly throughout the summer! A agree with Stella — your makeup free look is beautiful and perfect for your beachy vacay.

    Love the bikini! And the striped cover up looks a lot more expensive than it is.
