We went to La Cantera Resort in San Antonio a couple of weeks ago, so today I want to detail my packing list and favorite swimsuits from the trip. In case you missed the trip details, be sure and read my La Cantera Resort blog post HERE and check out the video I created HERE. And yes, I’m trying on swimsuits today – please be kind. 🙂
Packing List and Swimsuits
Let’s start with my travel look. I love to wear something comfortable so I can go straight from the plane to the resort without changing. The best luggage is Tumi luggage. It’s durable and the perfect size for a short weekend getaway and is small enough to carry on. I use my beach tote as a carry on as well.
Also, a little packing tip from me. I do hang everything on the wardrobe rack (top picture) before I pack it. This helps me see how well things will mix and match. I don’t pack by occasions/outfits. I simply bring enough to wardrobe myself when I get there. The only exception to this is if I am attending a special event like a wedding.
Now onto swimsuits. I don’t know a single female that enjoys swimsuit shopping. Me included! I order them online and try them on in the comfort of my own closet. I return what doesn’t work. These one-piece suits are comfortable, flattering and all under $35! A BARGAIN and a great fit. I wear a size M in all three styles. They were perfect for poolside and didn’t give me any odd tan lines. And I wear 50 SPF!
You can’t have a resort packing list and swimsuits selection without poolside accessories. I love this beautiful black maxi swimsuit cover-up for under $25! You can’t beat a deal like that. I style my poolside look with this straw hat, this straw beach tote and sunglasses. Don’t forget SPF 50 tanning oil!
This is a great resort dinner look. Pair this beautiful turquoise dress with a straw clutch and slide sandals for a cute and relaxed look. I wear a size M in the dress. No one wants to wear something tight and uncomfortable after relaxing by the pool all day. Am I right?
This is a great daytime look. Pair this puff sleeve top with these white shorts and slide sandals. I love an all white look! I am in a size M top and size 6 shorts. Everything fits true to size.
This blue dress was perfect for exploring! It is cute, comfortable and a great length. Pair it with this straw hat and nude sandals. I am wearing a size M dress.
What is your favorite from the packing list and swimsuits round-up?
Make it a great day!
