What To Pack For a Trip To Barbados

Ah, Barbados …

Barbados is a little island located on the Eastern edge of the Caribbean and it will always hold a very special place in my heart after having spent a week there with John for our first holiday away together! We went in June, which was their low season, and had a lovely time albeit it was their low season. Summer in the Caribbean is hot and humid, and you can bet you’ll experience a bit of rain. Since I’m used to this type of climate, I knew packing for this trip would be a breeze for me! I love loose-fitting dresses & tops in the hot summer months. Anything that allows a breeze to touch more of my skin and cool me down, okay? 😉 Then, you’ll need bathing suits galore, lightweight coverups, sun protection, and sandals!

Today, whether your going to Barbados or an island nearby, I thought I’d share a few options to consider packing if you’re doing some shopping for your trip! For what I personally packed, be sure to check out my profile in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app for right now! Next week, I’ll share a roundup of my Barbados outfits so you have somewhere you’ll always be able to reference no matter how much time goes by!

Travel diary of our time in Barbados is also in the works! For now, enjoy the packing list! xo.

I wore this crochet coverup almost everyday we went to the beach or pool while in Barbados! See me wearing it HERE & HERE.

I wore this floral bikini one day by the pool but haven’t shared the photo yet. It runs true to size. There’s moderate coverage on the backside.

This little anklet set was so perfect for vacation! I wore the gold one everyday! See it on me HERE.

These sandals have been on my feet more than any pair of shoes I’ve bought recently. I have the gold and natural color. I’m wearing them HERE, HERE & HERE.

sun protection

Statement earrings are a great way to complete your Summer outfits. I think these would be cute paired with the tangerine tunic that’s also included in this post.

Every girl needs a white bikini to show off their tan by the end of their vacation! I love this bikini [I have it in brown; seen HERE] but if you want another option, I wore this one [seen HERE].

If you’re looking for a fun coverup, try this colorful kimono! It’s super affordable!

I feel like I wear the same sunglasses all the time so I thought I’d share a pair I think are cute that wouldn’t work for me but that work well for SO many others! So, if the ones I wear aren’t your style, try these!

Shop It

Y’all know I’ve loved embracing the new biker short trend. I tried these but they were a little big on me. They’d be SO CUTE under the tangerine tunic!! Go one size down.

I shared this little straw bag not too long ago! It is precious and looks so much more expensive than it is! It’s under $50!

swimmies I packed

This body shimmer was one of my favorite beauty products I brought with me. Simply swipe it on your arms, chest and legs after a long day in the sun and you will surely look beautifully sun-kissed!

Shop It

After a long day in the sun, and after I’ve shaved my legs, one of my favorite things to wear in the Summer are lightweight linen pants! Try it … it’s seriously the best feeling!

Shop It

We all need some good Summer reads to dig into by the pool. This one is on my list. Which ones on yours?

Shop It

This black dress is perfect for that classy date night on your vacation. I love that it’s off-the-shoulder and loose being that you may be a little sun-kissed after a few days in the sun!
