Famlly Beach Vacation Packing List

Family Beach Vacation Packing List


Because I had so many questions on Instagram during on vacation I put together our family’s packing list, with every clothing item we packed for our trip. Over the years I’ve learned to pack leaner and more intentionally so I hope it’s helpful to see how we mixed and matched and we definitely wore outfits multiple times!
