Bali Packing List


One month from today we'll be in Bali. Our last few trips (Japan and Italy) haven’t been beach vacations so I’m really excited to pick up some new swimsuits and beachy things that I can wear in Bali and to a wedding weekend near Tulum this summer. See below for what’s on my packing list or shop the post by hovering over an item.

This straw bag is just too perfect (and well priced). I’ll fill it with magazines and sunscreen for the beach. // I’m desperately trying to become a “hat  person” to protect my skin from the sun. This one should be easy enough to pull off right? 

I spotted this Tory Burch bandeau last summer and have been wanting it ever since. I love a good bandeau (no tan lines!) and the retro feel of this one is so fun. (top / bottom) // Marysia Swim is so pricey but I’m thinking I may take the plunge with this olive-colored 'Antibes' bikini.

I rarely get a chance to wear shorts, and currently only own a few pairs of frayed Levi’s. I’ll definitely be packing them, but love this pair of black scalloped shorts from Madewell.

I have a feeling I’ll be sweating off any makeup I attempt to apply, but I will pack a few versatile items like NARS The Multiple Stick. It comes in various shades of bronze and can be used on your eyes, cheeks, lips or even body. Plus, it has vitamin E and acai oil so it’s full of antioxidants, never a bad thing. // Have you heard of Brazilian Bum Bum Cream? It’s supposed to be amazing so I’m going to try it out on our trip and will report back.

I know we won’t be dressing up much, but I can’t resist this gingham dress from Lioness. // You know me and stripes. This Marysia Swim dress is on sale and I think I could make it work in San Francisco with a jean jacket. 

Sachajuan’s Hair in the Sun shields color-treated hear and will hopefully prevent my blonde from becoming brassy during our trip. // I’ve been seeing a lot of cat eye sunnies popping up so it’s clearly a trend for spring and summer. Le Specs are good quality at a good price point and the Le Specs Edition Three 51mm Cat Eye Sunglasses may be my summer shades.

I’ve always loved Mara Hoffman’s bright prints. This colorful sarong will be coming with me to Bali. // I love the bright color and simple style of Topshop’s Have It Tie Up Sandals (and the price isn’t bad either).

I love a good cold shoulder top or dress, and the lace detail on this one from Moon River (not to mention the price) is so good. // I recently discovered swim brand Peixoto during a rabbit hole Shopbop session. I love this simple one piece and the price considering swimsuits have gotten so expensive!
