Like most of you, I miss traveling (SO MUCH!). I miss jetting off to distant lands and dipping my toes into sandy beaches, exploring different cities, and most of all I miss seeing my international friends. Since it is still unclear if traveling will go back to normal this year, I decided to take a mini trip to Santa Barbara, for a little R&R. This will have to do for now. I’m not complaining, as I love staycations! They don’t require a big budget or a lot of planning. Win, win situation!
I decided to pack light as we (Kevin & I) planned on being away for only 3 nights. I knew we’d be poolside for the most part of our stay, so I wanted to make sure to pack only the essentials. For me, that consists of a big straw hat, a cover up, sunnies, SPF (v. important) and a couple of bathing suits. If you’re anything like me, you appreciate a bathing suit that is both flattering & comfortable. The one I’m wearing here is from Victoria’s Secret and it offers both of those elements. It’s also super cute – I love the color block design, the one shoulder strap and the waist cut-out detail. With all my essential pieces at hand, all that was left to do was order a few drinks, look through mags, and enjoy the sunshine!
What swimwear items do you reach for? Are you a one-piece or bikini type of person?
