what i packed for hawaii!

in a few days i’m leaving for the most exciting trip i’ve ever been on!! i’m going to a beach house in kona, hawaii with my family for a week!!!! it’s going to be the best trip ever and get so excited for all the posts. here’s what i packed to give you guys some tips for packing for a trip!


  • 3 pairs of shorts
  • 1 jean skirt
  • 3 tee shirts
  • 2 tube tops and 1 tank top
  • pullover sweatshirt
  • windbreaker
  • 1 pair of leggings/pants
  • 2 nice dresses
  • 3 bikinis
  • bras, underwear, socks for each day
  • 2 pairs of pajamas
  • vans

i knew i wanted to pack lots of bikinis and overall chill clothes because we will be spending most of our time on the go at the beach and pools! i also brought some dresses and one fancy top for when we go out to dinner. also dresses are perfect to throw on over a bikini at the beach!

hygiene + beauty

  • everyday makeup; mascara, eyebrows + concealer
  • mini skincare; cleanser, toner, moisturizer, retinol
  • sunscreen!!
  • shower stuff; body wash, razor, shampoo, conditioner
  • basics; toothpaste, toothbrush + deodorant

honestly i know i’m not going to be wearing makeup except for maybe some trusty waterproof mascara so i just brought the basics. also my favorite sunscreen for hawaii is sunbum cause it’s all vegan, cruelty free and safe for the animals and reefs which is so important!


  • basic jewelry
  • bucket hat
  • sunglasses
  • bluetooth speaker

the house we rented has its own pool and hot tub so i knew i wanted to listen to music in our pool so i brought my speaker. then for extras i just wore the basic jewelry i always wear and sunglasses and a bucket hat because i think they’re actually really cute!!

plane bag:

  • hydro flask
  • phone + charger
  • ipad w/ netflix downloads
  • airpods
  • journals + pens
  • meds
  • a magazine
  • wallet
  • portable charger
  • camera + charger
  • lip balm

i packed all of this into a mini backpack that i’ll be carrying around with me the whole trip cause i know we’ll be on the go a lot and i want to have everything i’ll need.

i hope you enjoyed this post and get so excited for hawaii posts!!

  1. So exciting that you’re going to Hawaii! Hydroflasks are the best for keeping water cold. I’m sure your’s will come in handy while you’re there.
