Let's Go There: Myrtle Beach, SC

If you follow on snapchat (julie-leah) then you already knew I was planning this post because I've been sharing sneak peeks. I love this summer travel series and knew as soon as we planned our annual trip, that I would definitely be giving you a look in my suitcase. I've shared links to all the items that are available! Enjoy!


For me, this trip is all about getting recharged before the new school year begins. We'll be spending our days (as long as it doesn't rain) on the beach and by the pool. Then at night, we'll go to dinner at a few of our favorite local restaurants and do some shopping. We always spend one evening on Ocean Blvd. riding the SkyWheel and shopping at The Gay Dolphin, we never miss a couple of visits to Painter's Ice Cream, and the Kate Spade outlet is high on my priority list.

Hat, TARGET (men's) • Sunglasses, URBAN OUTFITTERS • Turquoise & white tassels, LISI LERCH
Pink tassels, BAUBLEBAR

Individual fragrances, gifted PINROSE • Highlighter, THE BALM • Liquid lipstick, TOO FACED
Lipstick, gifted LORAC • Setting spray, gifted SUPERGOOP via POPSUGAR
Wave/curl styling spray, LIVING PROOF • Face wipes, YES TO GRAPEFRUIT

Pink clutch, gifted VERA BRADLEY • Leopard clutch, CLARE V.

Honestly, I always feel like beach trips are the hardest to pack for simply because of all the stuff that has to be packed. Bathing suits for day, outfits for night, a beach bag, beach chairs - there's so much. It's ridiculously humid in South Carolina this time of year, so I packed breezy dresses, one light-weight jumpsuit, and two rompers. I always pack a couple extra outfits because you never know when you'll have a rainy day. To save space, I roll everything in my suitcase and utilize all the pockets and compartments. I separate my jewelry in individual draw-string bags so that nothing gets broken or tangled while I'm traveling. And I always make sure that I put messy liquids (like nail polish and shower gel) in a plastic baggy. There's nothing worse than having to clean a mess as soon as your vacation starts.

Flip flops, COACH • Towel, gifted TURKISH T via POPSUGAR

Beach bag, MUDPIE (On super sale! So big!) • Small pool bags, gifted DERMALOGICA

I'm really excited to wear these two dresses in the photo below. The floral ASOS one has been a tried-and-true companion since last summer, and I just picked up the pink/navy dress at Anthro when I was in Knoxville two weeks ago. I can't wait to wear it with my Vera Bradley clutch and BaubleBar tassel earrings!

Navy/pink, ANTHROPOLOGIE • Floral, ASOS

So fun! My family vacationed every summer in Garden City Beach just south of Myrtle and I loved it! Painter's Ice Cream is the best- I love their cake batter!
