What I’m Packing for California

My graduation trip is officially 4 days away and I am beyond excited for it!  After graduating from college over the weekend and spending this week unwinding from the craziness of school, I am so ready for vacation.  I am headed to sunny southern California with my boyfriend and we both cannot wait to relax and have some much-deserved fun in the sun! We will be spending a week in Los Angeles doing all the touristy things and visiting friends and then a long weekend relaxing in San Diego and I am so excited! Today I am actually starting to pack and get things ready for the trip and wanted to share with you all what I’m packing, and hopefully give you some inspiration on what to pack on a sunny vacation as well.

Clothing I’m Packing:


  1. Navy Blue Floral Print Short Overalls // Lulus

I just ordered these a couple of days ago because I thought these were SO cute and perfect for days at the beach and nice comfy and cute clothing to wear around town.  Because who doesn’t love to stay comfortable while also looking cute?!

2. Stripe Jumpsuit // American Eagle

My exact jumpsuit is actually sold out, however, American Eagle has an endless selection of some of the cutest jumpsuits.  All perfect for that sunny California style!

3. LA Hearts Tie Front Smocked Tube Top // PacSun

I thought this tube top was so adorable and loved the matching set with the shorts as well.  I love all things polka dot and was drawn to this and knew I had to have it for California.

4. LA Hearts Tie Waist Shorts // PacSun

I am obsessed with these shorts and they are super comfortable and even have pockets!

5. Ray-Ban Round 50mm Sunglasses

I had been seeing these sunglasses all over Instagram and honestly had my eyes on these glasses for about a year.  I finally bought them last month and have absolutely loved them!  I love the style and they go with just about everything.

6. Twist Front Crop Tee // SHEIN

I am obsessed with the front twist style of tees and this one is just $7!

7. Black High Waisted Denim Shorts // American Eagle

American Eagle is my go-to for buying shorts and love the black denim short and white.

8. White High Waisted Denim Shorts // American Eagle

My exact white denim shorts are actually sold out but they have so many similar styles as well.

9. Mauve Pink Button-Up Cropped Tank Top // Lulus

Love everything about this cropped cami, so cute for summer style!

10. Steve Madden Greece Sandals in White // Macy’s

I got these sandals last summer and they are seriously worth every penny.  They are SO cute and go with everything and I have gotten so much use out of them.

11. High Rise Denim Festival Shorts // PacSun

Absolutely love the style of these festival shorts and love how they can go with so many different things.

12. Navy Blue and White Striped Tank Top // Lulus

I love the style of this tank and how it is so different from a standard tank top, love the colors too and it is super comfortable!

*Of course, I am packing a lot of cropped graphic tees and kimono as well for days at the beach!
