What I Wore In Aruba

I spent a week in Aruba over New Years and wanted to share what I packed and wore on the trip for those of you looking for warm sunny vacation outfit inspiration!

I wasn’t planning on doing posts on the trip so I don’t have pics of most of what I wore but I did get some snaps of a few things and the rest I’ll put in boutique widgets for easy shopping. I’ll put a full packing list at the end of the post.

Bathing Suits & Cover-Ups

For a 7 day trip I packed 3 bathing suits and 3 cover-up outfits since my goal was to spend time on the beach every day.

My favorite tankini! So flattering!
I wore this very supportive bikini on a sail & snorkel trip so I’d be dry again quickly after snoreling. There’s also a tankini version of this swim suit & it comes in lots of colors & patterns.
The temperature on Aruba is pretty constant at 80 degrees and it’s windy so it can be cool in the shade. These linen pants were perfect for beach, sailing, lunch, cocktails…
and I love how easy it is to wear this lacy peplum tankini… very forgiving around the middle!
A crisp white cover-up dress with embroidery is so stylish!

Dinner & Evening Out Outfits

I brought mainly jeans and cute tops for casual dinners but I like to have a couple dresses to choose from for going to nicer places. Most of the clothes I brought aren’t available now so I’ll link similar items in the boutiques below.

I brought this flirty fringed dress for New Year’s Eve along with this crisp white jacket for topping evening outfits when the sun went down! It was so windy that evening that hair up in a messy bun was the only option.
I brought this dress to wear to an evening poolside cocktail party and dinner.
It was the perfect chic “little black dress” for the occasion (I wore it with espadrille wedge sandals instead of tights & boots of course)!
For a casual dinner and souvenir shopping I wore this off-the-shoulder jumpsuit
(wish I had a better picture of it)
