Happy Tuesday! We’re only a few weeks into 2020, but in true fashion, I’ve already got travel on the brain.
E & I took a magical trip back to Couples Swept Away in Jamaica for our 3rd anniversary last November. We honeymooned here and can’t recommend it enough! It was the easiest decision to go back – that means a lot for travel bugs like us.
Well during November in Chicago, let me tell you, no one is selling tons of tropical clothing. I had a good amount of pieces from previous vacations, but wanted a few new things to refresh my beach wardrobe.
That left me with Amazon, which I was initially a little nervous about from a sizing and quality standpoint, but I found some amazing stuff!
Below are the four pieces I loved mixing + matching – including the cutest Amazon swimsuit. Bonus: it’s all very budget friendly! I’ve done the research so you don’t have to. Check them out below.
- Bandeau High-Wasted Swimsuit ($22) // A swimsuit was the Amazon find I was most nervous for, but this one is freakin’ perfect! I felt beautiful, confident, and comfortable. Strapless makes me a little nervous since I’m fuller up there, but this stayed secure in and out of the water. Tons of cute prints/solids – I went cheetah, are we even surprised? Set sized and sold as S/M/L – I ordered an M and L, chose M. Happy to provide more help there, comment or message me over on Insta.
Let’s be cheetah girls, cheetah sisters – or pick another pretty color!
- Pom-Pom Cover Up ($17) // Lightweight, cute and easy to pack! There are 16 different color options for this one-size fits all (omg made ordering so simple!) cover up. I packed others, but ended up wearing this one every day! I got lots of compliments and felt completely comfortable when we stepped into a place for lunch mid-day.
If I look like I just woke up here, it’s because I just did. LOL. Rise & coconut for breakfast, yes please.
Cover Up – see more colors here!
- Havana Style Beach Hat ($16) // I found my hat over the summer at Forever 21, but convinced E he needed one too – for looks and protection from face sunburn. We ordered a few different hats, this was the clear winner! Structured nicely, wide-brim for coverage. Comfortable, breathable, unisex design. I wore it a couple times myself (better protection than my F21 find).
Beach Hat – more neutral shades here.
- Round Straw Crossbody ($26) // None of my bags felt fun enough, and I had my eye on the straw purse trend for a while. Cue this fun find! It’s certainly a less expensive version of the originals floating out there I think, but stylish, solid quality with two-day delivery (praise) that worked lovely!
Y’all, I am so lame and didn’t get one photo with the crossbody in Jamaica! So here is a photo from Amazon and a low-quality photo of us in the piano lounge where you can see the strap…haha.
Crossbody here, comes with a scarf too!
