Our Honeymoon: What to Pack

I don’t know about y’all but I live for summertime. When we decided to start from scratch to pick a honeymoon location, I knew I wanted to be somewhere warm — I’d rather be in sandals and a light top or dress over boots and pants any day. So you can imagine with the teasing spring-like days that we have had recently, combined with the potential threat of snow coming this weekend, I am trying my best to think warm thoughts.

In the spirit of making Spring happen before it probably will make its official appearance, I decided to get a little head start on gathering outfit ideas that I’ll need to pack in a few short months!Screen Shot 2017-03-11 at 12.01.37 PM

I already am a firm believer in “if it isn’t moving, monogram it”, and the excitement of getting a new monogram only add fuel to the monogramming fire. I have a pair of monogram Jack Rogers on my list, as well as a necklace to wear as well. Add that with the super adorable “wifey” shirt, and that will make the perfect outfit for a short flight to Jamaica. It may be evident that we will be honeymooners, but that’s the point of the honeymoon, right?

I also plan to stock up on a few more cute bathing suits. Over the past year, I’ve been recycling through my old ones from early college in exchange for a few more age-appropriate suits. I just love the cute scalloped one-piece, which would be perfect for a night swim in the pool.

One of the excursions we hope to do while in Jamaica is to hike Dunn’s River Falls. While they aren’t the cutest shoes in the world, I definitely will be investing in a pair of water shoes for any water adventure we embark on. I’d rather wear ugly shoes than cut my feet on rocks any day!

With warm days and cool nights, I plan to pack some easy-to-wear outfits, that will be light enough for the hot days, but also easy to pair with a jacket for the cool evenings on the beach. I hope to find a cute maxi dress to wear to the more formal dinners as well!

Ahh, I can almost feel the warm sand in between my toes. But considering it is currently 33 degrees outside, I think I’ll go curl up on the couch and dream of paradise instead.

Did you go on a tropical honeymoon or trip recently? Let me know what you packed in the comments below!

One thought on “Our Honeymoon: What to Pack

  1. I went on a tropical honeymoon–though, it was far from recently–3 bathing suits, cute shorts, a cute pair of sandals (that I still wear, and guess what . . . they still fit). We also took matching jackets that were very nautical!!
