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?? I’ve also included a 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 gorgeous Montblanc sweater. I also love this 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 belted down jacket. Keep your fingers and toes warm on the slopes with these boots and these lined gloves. Other essentials include ski goggles and this lined ear warmer. After you’ve hit the slopes, you will want switch out for this pom pom knit beanie for an après ski look. 

SUN: If you’re heading to the beach instead, make sure you have a chic caftan and sandals on your packing list. I love this cute ruched 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 beach tote bag, sunglasses, a sun hat, and fun earrings like these cove drop 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.


Do you prefer a sunny destination or the beautiful mountains for a 3 day holiday weekend? Also, don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away! Shop my Valentine’s Day blog post HERE.
