Over packing for a vacation is a major drag. Pack one great neutral bag that you can use throughout trip, like this Michael Kors Marina Tote, then pack a small clutch for dinner dates and such.
Save yourself the trouble of taking your whole make-up stash with, instead opt for kits like the Benefit Cabana Glama that will give you a warm all-over glow.
Tan Sandals like these Nine West We Want It are so cool and easy to dress with tops, shorts, and dresses.
To ease sunburns, pack an all in one solution like First Aid Beauty aloe plus soothing gel. If a fridge is available, I store in there for and extra dose of refreshment.
When I'm on vacation, I like to smell like vacation. Bath and Body Works Aruba Coconut does the trick.
Finally, a great dress that can transition from day to night is a packing must! This one is from Top Shop.
