Let’s start with a question – ski vs sun? Which do you prefer? In today’s post, you don’t have to pick because I’m sharing packing options for both beach and ski destinations. With President’s Day weekend coming up and spring break in March, I thought it was time to share some pieces perfect for whatever kind of vacation you might be planning. Will you be heading to the beach or the mountains…or both?? Be sure and read all the way through to see my Saint Bernard try-on session for more ski options!

Ski vs Sun Packing Options

SKI: Ready to hit the slopes? I linked some ski essentials that are stylish and functional, like this really cute après ski sweater. Pair it with these black ski pants and this après ski scarf. You’ll also definitely need chic outerwear, like this cropped down jacket. Keep your fingers and toes warm on the slopes with these Moon boots and these lined gloves. Other essentials include ski goggles and this fleece lined ear warmer. After you’ve hit the slopes, you will want these cashmere lined gloves and pom pom knit beanie for an après ski look. 

SUN: If you’re heading to the beach instead, make sure you have a cute swimsuit cover-up and sandals on your packing list. I love this cute wrap one piece. It comes in a bunch of colors. I also love this classic and flattering one should one-piece swimsuit. Don’t forget the finishing touches…like a cute straw tote bag, sunglasses, a sun hat, and fun earrings like these lux palm pearl earrings. Just add sunscreen!

Everyone needs a classic base layer top. It’s so warm and comfortable. Also, if you prefer ski pants without the suspenders, then you’ll love these. Wearing size 6 pants.
