Gen Y Beach Weekend Essentials // #packinglist

Do not underestimate the power of packing light. Less is more.

For a weekend getaway to the coast, a small suitcase should suffice. In pictures below, view several beach-going essentials followed by a comprehensive and concise packing list.

DAY OUTFIT: Nautical stripes. Beach basket. Chucks. Sunscreen, sunglasses and hat. Protect your skin! A friend of mine recommended this face sunscreen, and I’ll never buy anything else. It’s lightweight, oil-free and long-lasting.

ACCESSORIES: DIY denim shorts. A notebook for writing and a Kindle Fire for reading. Game of Thrones is my book of choice for July.

GOING OUT: Color-block dress, wedges, lip gloss, face wash and a very handy steamer.

TRAVEL NECESSITIES: First, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant which is a fine powder and serves as both a cleanser and exfoliant. You are welcome TSA. Second, the my little steamer does wonders for wrinkled clothing.
