Vacations are meant to be relaxing, but packing for one well (or realizing that you have not once you arrive!) can be a challenge. We’re obsessed with every single boho chic piece created by LoveShackFancy creative director, Rebecca Hessel Cohen. Every new collection from the brand looks like a dream vacation wardrobe waiting to be packed up.
One glance at Rebecca’s social feed (okay, it was more than a glance – check it out and tell us its not worth insta-stalking!) tells us that this woman has traveling in style down to a science and we asked her to share her ultimate beach vacation packing list with us. Perfectly functional and masterfully stylish, Rebecca’s list has us jonesing for just one more weekend getaway before the summer is over…
THE ULTIMATE BEACH VACATION PACKING LIST
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil
The dry oil has the most amazing smell and is the best way to get glowy and shimmering skin. Makes your legs look gorgeous!
LoveShackFancy separates & dresses
LoveShackFancy cotton and crochet mini skirts, crop tops and short dresses and long white Victorian dresses for day, and silk separates for evening. These are literally all I pack! So easy, effortless and perfect for travel, I can never get enough.
Klorane dry shampoo
The best to keep your curls and beach hair looking cute – and you never need to wash your hair!
Smythson of Bond Street journal
I use these travel note journals to write down all of my favorite places.
…And little floral cotton bikinis I’ve collected from my travels. I wear a bikini from day to night, just so I am always prepared!
Lola hats or Bonpoint Sun hat
They make adorable floppy hats that are easy to travel with and fold in your suitcase.
Kari Gran Sunscreen
It’s the easiest lightweight sunblock.
It’s the best way to capture candids on a trip. My three-year old loves Polaroids so we always bring one!
Gemma Cleo Ankle bracelets
I love these cute liberty print anklets with charms. They have cute sayings in French like ‘je t’aime’ and my daughter’s names.
Ray Ban aviators
I always grab a new pair at the airport . I think I go through ten pairs a year.
Alaia platform stilettos
My nude and gold high heels for evening…always need a few little gold accessories.
My everyday easy shoe.
All my jewelry
It never comes off! I especially love my Jacquie Aiche body chain that is my new favorite accessory to wear with a bikini.
Vintage blue bandana
I usually tie one in my hair or around my bag.
Louis Vuitton Duffel
It’s my go-to suitcase.
club 55 Beach bags
I collect beach bags from my favorite beach shack at Club 55 in St. Tropez. They’re so easy to throw everything in for a day at the beach. Some are vintage potato sacks and others are vintage fabrics reworked.
