Honestly, I’m stoked to be heading to Nantucket at the end of the week with Allie and Elle. We’ve been saying we’ve been wanting to go for at least a year, and finally, we just planned it. Let me tell you: Our excitement level is THROUGH THE ROOF. We’ve been discussing plans nonstop, and I just know we’re going to have the best long weekend ever.
I know how difficult it could be to pack for a trip, so I wanted to share what I plan on packing for our trip to Nantucket!
FUN DRESSES TO THROW ON
Nantucket is the place to bring out your brightest and most fun dresses…right? I picked up this tunic-y dress after eyeing it as soon as it hit the New Arrivals section. I knew it was going to perfect for this vacation. I also am planning on packing this Something Navy dress for one of our dinners. Dresses are honestly just some of the easiest pieces to throw on during a summer vacation, so you better believe most of my suitcase are dresses. Check out some of my other dresses below!
I’ve been absolutely loving this sunscreen, so I bought a few travel size bottles to keep in my bag throughout the summer. It’s unbelievably lightweight and I don’t feel bothered when I want to reapply sunscreen throughout the day. Obviously also packing this sunscreen for under my make up.
A CUTE SUIT
I don’t think we’re planning on laying out, but still packing a swimsuit just in case. This Zimmermann one pretty much screams Nantucket. Right? It was a crazy impulse buy, so I’m wearing it AS MUCH as possible.
BLOUSES THAT GO WITH EVERYTHING
I’ve been on a feminine blouse kick lately. When I saw this one, I just knew she needed to come home with me. I love a good blouse to get tucked into a pair of high rise jeans. And this blouse fit the bill (along with a couuuuuuple of others). I also wore it tucked into a midi skirt for work!
You guys know I love my sunglasses. A lot. Naturally, every look has to have a good pair of sunglasses to go with it. I’ve been loving these round ones, but also packing other shapes and colors!
EASY, SUMMERY BAGS
I’m a bag lady (seriously, I carry this bag around 4 out of 5 days a week). When I’m on vacation, I want to carry around fun bags. So I plan on packing this one along with a few versatile other ones!
We’re going to be walking everywhere, so appropriate footwear is a must. I’m definitely packing my Birks for when we’re walking around shopping and such. Luckily, I think these sandals are pretty darn comfortable, so they’ll be able to dress up my outfits. And of course, a crisp pair of Gucci loafers will work.
Shorts are obviously very important for summer. Up until last week, I had such an issue finding shorts that my butt didn’t hang out of. I decided to look at American Eagle for shorts and I HIT THE JACKPOT. I seriously walked out with 8 pairs of shorts. I’m packing 3 pairs (one hang out pair, a dressier pair, and a “cool pair that I’ve been wanting to try).
I’ve never been to Nantucket, but I could imagine a few sweaters are a must for cooler nights. I definitely gravitate towards crew necks, and I love wearing them with shorts at night. Much like our first trip to the Hamptons for the summer, we are always looking for a cute sweatshirt. Obviously, one of our first stops in Nantucket is a cute shop where we can get cute Nantucket gear…because, basic. I picked up a new cashmere sweater that I’ll be bringing with me for those chilly nights where I still want to look put together!
Am I missing anything from my packing list?! Please let me know now so I don’t forget anything;)
