Travel Accessory Finds From Amazon

If you are lucky enough to be travelling soon for Spring break, or possibly planning a trip this summer, I have some new travel accessories to recommend from Amazon!

I recently went to Florida over New Year’s and picked up some new accessories prior to my trip. They all worked out great so I knew I had to share them!

I’ve always considered myself a good packer. Yes, on every trip I usually pack a few extra pairs of shoes and outfits that I didn’t need. But all in all, I am an expert clothes roller and therefore can fit a ton in my suitcases. But, all of those clothes come at a cost since I’m usually holding my breath that I don’t exceed the weight limit at the airport and have to pay extra money right before my trip!

So before this trip, I saw lots of people recommending packing cubes and calling out how they changed the packing game and figured I would give them a shot.

I picked these styles from Amazon due to the good reviews at a very reasonable price.

5 packing cubes come in this pack in 3 different size ranges. You receive 2 large, 2 medium, and 1 small all at a great price! My favorite aspects of these cubes include the see through mesh windows so you can tell what you packed into each cube, the 3 different size ranges so they work well in all different size bags, and the handles that allow you to efficiently move them around as needed without your stuff becoming a mess!

As I mentioned, the 3 different sizes work great to fit into all different size bags. I bought a set for myself, my husband, and both kids and they worked great in each of our bags. My favorite size is the medium because I was able to fit 2 of them side by side on one side of my suitcase. I also liked the small size because I was able to segment out some items that I didn’t want to get lost with all the other clothes.

You may ask yourself, why do I need to use cubes when I am able to get all of the items in my luggage no problem? Good question, I thought the same thing! The biggest benefit I found was that the cubes forced me to cut back on how many items I was bringing before I stuffed it all into my bag and then realized it didn’t fit! I am that person that would end up sitting on my bag to try to get it to close, then it would be too heavy….you see how this goes. So by using the cubes, I filled the cubes as much as I could and then I had no problem fitting it in my suitcase! The other benefit was packing to come home. By having different cubes I could segment out all the dirty clothes to make washing when I got home a breeze. Love these cubes and catch wait to use them on my next trip!

The next accessory that I loved is this Fedora Beach Hat. I had been looking for a hat that looked great and held up well while travelling and at the pool and beach. This one is perfect! Love the styling and it comes in so many colors and different trim details. I chose the classic Beige with a Black Grosgrain Ribbon. Best part? It is truly packable! It traveled it my suitcase packed in between all my other stuff and was perfectly fine when unpacked! Love having a hat I can travel with that is convenient to take instead of having to carry on and afraid of getting ruined. Love it!

The last accessory I picked up is a new water bottle- the stainless steel Hydro Flask. So many of my girlfriends use stainless steel water bottles but I hadn’t tried on. After all the great reviews I wanted to give it a shot. I was really looking for a water bottle that could hold my drinks at the ideal temperature and not leak! This one is worth the cost!

Embroidered Top from Amazon

This is the first season I’ve shopped for apparel and fashion items on Amazon and I’m definitely on the Amazon bandwagon! This embroidered blouse is one of my favorite items I’ve picked up so far. The bright embroidery pattern is perfect for summer. The ruffle sleeves give a feminine look to the blouse. And the looser fit will be extra comfortable in the warmer weather. This top will be a show stopper for both casual looks or if you want to be a little more dressed up with jeans, heels, or wedges. I’m really loving both looks with my white denim, though it would also pair great with regular denim or colored shorts or pants. (commission links)

Sleeveless Embroidered Pom Pom Blouse– Available in 5 colors and less than $23! I followed the sizing recommendation to size up one size, and it was definitely the right choice. I bought a size medium when I normally wear a small.

Other items shown:

White Denim Shorts– runs tts

Rose Gold Footbed Sandals– less than $23

White Denim Skinny Jeans

Navy Canvas Espadrille Wedges

My Favorite Straw Hat

Yes, I am the person on the beach who is covered in SPF 50 or higher, sitting under the umbrella and wearing a hat and sunglasses.🤷🏻‍♀️ I am terrified of getting sunburn. And my poor kids have me constantly running after them making sure they have enough sunscreen on. Are you that person too? Well, it’s totally fine! nothing wrong with being sun safe!

I am so happy to have found what I believe to be the best straw hat out there!! I have tried many over the years and even though I may not have liked how they looked on me I wore them anyway in the sun. This one, however, I love and it seems to look great on everyone!!! It also comes in only 30 different combos to choose from too (mine is A-brown 1)

Ready for the Weekend and the Pool

Finally the weekend is almost here! Can’t wait to head to the pool to celebrate my son’s 7th birthday. I wore this swimsuit and hat last weekend and they were both perfect. I was so impressed with this Target swimsuit. It was very comfortable and flattering (if I do say so myself!)

I’m normally not a hat person, but I picked this one up from Amazon recently based on the great reviews and it worked out great! See even more details below (affiliate links)

Tropical Floral Print Swimsuit– Wearing size small. Has good coverage in the rear and not too high cut on the legs. Straps criss cross in the back and are adjustable.

Wide Brim Straw Hat– Such a steal! This hat is less than $16 plus another 5% off. It comes in tons of colors and has great features: it’s adjustable so I was able to play with the fit till I got a flattering look, has a wide brim that gave my face a lot of protection from the sun, and it’s packable so it’s easy to throw in your bag for the beach and pool or on your next vacation!
