Since my “What to Pack… ” Guides are some of my most popular posts, I thought I would share a new one with you all: What to pack and wear to Hawaii and any tropical vacation destination!! I figured with Spring Break coming up, this may be helpful!

No 1 \ Fabulous Sunglasses... you need to protect your eyes from the bright UV. I am loving these sunglasses: Karen Walker, Ray Bans, Dior, aviator sunglasses – a good buy, good buy Cat Eye sunglasses
No 2 \ A wrap… It gets chilly on the beach in the evening. If you intend to stroll the beach at dusk or eat at an outdoor restaurant watching the sun set, I *highly* recommend bringing a wrap with you. Here are my favorites: linen scarf in every color ever!, pink and green scarf, fun fringe scarf
No 3 \ A Hat.. yes, we know you want to get tan but you really need to protect your face from the sun… as you know it causes wrinkles and aging faster. I love this hat, but it is a total splurge. Here are some budget friendly options: straw hat, straw fedora, black and white hat, and my favorite visor
No 5 \ Beach worthy hair products: I love to bring this with me… after I shower from a long day at the beach I spritz a little of this in my hair to keep the beach-wave going, or you can use this Sea salt spray.
No 6 \ Sunscreen... possibly the most important thing to bring to Hawaii! You are much closer to the equator than the continental US so the rays are more powerful which means it’s way easier to burn! I switch between this one and this one for my face and this for my body.
No 7 \ A Beach Tote… you need to haul your sunscreen to the beach somehow. Do it in a stylish beach tote. I am liking these ones: Lilly Pulitzer, blue and white striped, straw tote, a steal deal, tory burch
No 9 \ A Cover Up… if you are staying in a hotel you often cannot go from your room to the beach in a swimsuit so you have to wear a cover-up. I like these ones: boyfriend shirt, fringed tunic,a sarong, a long maxi
No 10 \ Stylish Sandals.. I recommend bringing two pairs of sandals. One pair to the beach and one dressy pair for dinner/wearing around… here are my favorites: tory burch miller (I wear this one), sam edelman plain, valentino rock stud lookalikes, high heeled wedges, total splurge but super cute!
No 11 \ Tank Top… A nice sleeveless shirt or tank top is a must. Preferably one that can be dressed up or down for a day around the island and then to a nice dinner. I like these ones… hot pink, eileen fisher, chambray sleeveless,
No 15 \ Dainty Necklace… A little necklace is perfect and something you can wear with your swimsuit or with your flowy maxi dress at nice. This initial necklace with quartz is perfect for the tropics, so is this dainty disc necklace, and this halo pendant is nice too! Oh and I *love* the look of gold stacking bracelets on perfectly tanned skin!
