Is a Caribbean vacation in your future? Whether it’s a cruise or a beautiful beach resort, I have a few favorites that I always pack. With luggage space at a premium, I look for things that are lightweight and compact. Take a peek in my suitcase!

I love it when I can find dresses that look great for nice dinner but are super comfortable and easy care. Both of these are soft and can be machine washed and hung dry. They are lightweight too so they aren’t too heavy for tropical nights. The first link is to the purple dress I’m wearing on the beach. It’s very soft and stretchy and the best part is the huge pockets! Every dress should have pockets!
The second dress on my list is this great sleeveless maxi. I love this because it looks nicer than wearing a t-shirt and shorts but it’s even more comfortable. This one also has pockets (I see a theme here)! This same company also makes this dress with sleeve options too.

I am guilty of taking a ton of tech with me on vacation. Since vacation also is “work”, I usually have multiple phones, a tablet and even a laptop. There are never enough outlets. Never! So I found this cute little extension plug. It’s small so I can fit it in my carry-on. I was impressed with both the price and practicality neat little gadget (I do love me some gadgets!).

Last but not least, this is a fun one! If you are going to a beach resort it is sooooooooo nice to have your own floats. I noticed on a few of my Sandals resort tours that guests brought their own floats. I had never thought of it before but for me next trip we brought these ones. It was so nice to have our own stuff! The great thing about these are that they fold up and pack totally flat and also include a small pump to inflate them, They were great!

These are just a few of my favorites. Stay tuned for more great travel ideas! Please note that I earn a small commission on any of the affiliate links if you choose to buy them. Any of the products I recommend are ones that I personally own and feel comfortable recommending to my friends!
