Packing Essentials For The Beach

Fashion + Lifestyle

August 5, 2022

Need packing inspiration for your next beach trip? Here are some quick and easy essentials to pack for us ladies over 40! It was Target for the win this time!

Bringing one outfit for each activity or each day is really all that you need when you’re headed to the beach. For us, we knew we would lounge at the beach, go shopping and head to a nice dinner. So one outfit for each activity is perfect!

Here’s what I packed for our seaside trip

Check out this reel (here) over on my Instagram for a video of the items!

Outfit Idea for shopping

Wide leg beach pants & white tank bodysuit from @target. TIP: If you wear flowy on the bottom, go for tighter on the top. This bodysuit from Target is NOT too tight which is why I love it! It stays tucked in and doesn’t budge so you’re never having to fidget with the fit.

Outfit Idea for dinner

White dress from @target (linked in my Instagram highlights). Packing a light, flowy dress is great for going out to eat on you’re trip! Not too dressy but just enough.

Outfit Idea for the beach

Shorts from @target and shirt from @gapinc (can’t beat a classic white linen button down for the beach!) This outfit works great for an easy beach cover up over your swimsuit.

Accessories

Shoes@toryburch comfy sandals – I opted for these because they are comfy and were on sale at Nordstrom #nsale

Jewelry@madewell earrings, @enewtondesign, ring @bananarepublic – I prefer to bring higher quality pieces so I know that when I wear them to the beach, they won’t tarnish, hold better to sun screen or rub off on my skin.

Head over to my Instagram to view all of the links to these items in my IG highlights. Follow along here, on the blog, and on Instagram for more inspiration for styling yourself after 40!
