Packing for Hawaii

We are headed to Hawaii tomorrow (insert all the vacay emojiis).

The reason for our trip is one of my best friend’s weddings this weekend. We cannot wait to celebrate, but we decided to head to the island early for a little R&R before all of the festivities begin. Be sure to follow along @adashofdetails, because I will be over posting on Instagram and Instastories. We have a really fun itinerary planned, but if there are any must-have spots, restaurants, or activities we need to know about in Maui, we would love any recs!

For the last year I’ve only used my carry-on suitcase when I travel. I have to give credit to my gf, Mackenzie for teaching me her ways. After lugging a 50lb bag all around New York, on the train to Connecticut, and then on an eight person plane to Nantucket, I vowed I would never overpack again. Since that trip, I have packed for a ski week in Vail, Christmas (including presents), and now six days in Hawaii in my trusty carry-on.

Here’s what’s inside:


 I knew I wanted to get a few new things for our trip and first up on this list was swimsuits. I decided it was the perfect time to try the one-piece trend. I have to say, I was skeptical at first but then I picked up this, this and this one and I am hooked!


This button up is one of my favorite pieces to bring to the beach, throw it on over your suit for an easy, effortless look. Also, I love wearing cutoffs over a one-piece for a beach to lunch look.

I packed this, this and this.


There are so many cute sundresses right now. Even if you are not heading to the beach, this darling dress is too cute for words!


I try and only pack 3 pairs of shoes for every trip. This time I ended up with four, but here’s the breakdown:

Black Sandals / White Sandals / Tan Sandals / Heels / Sneakers


These travel cases have been a game changer.

What’s inside: Sunscreen, face lotion, bronzer, mascara
