March is here, which means my bachelorette party month has finally arrived! Me and my girls will be beach bound to Mexico in just a few short weeks. I've already started packing and looking for the perfect outfits. I'm beyond ready for some gorgeous beach days with my best girls, so you're going to get a lot of beach themed posts all month long. Today I'm sharing some pre-planning tips for getting ready to style the perfect beach ready wardrobe!
Solidify your theme: The first step in packing the perfect outfits is figuring out the theme of the weekend. This could be the overall vibe or specific themed-events depending on your destination. Once you have a clear direction, you can start shopping!
Get Shopping: This is one of my favorite parts of preparing for any vacation! I love getting to envision certain looks and find the perfect pieces to bring them to life. If you're going the online route, be sure to check out last week's post, Tip Tuesday: Online Shopping!
Plan in advance: Keep your timeline in mind throughout the planning process. Start about a month out to give yourself time to cultivate the perfect outfits. If you're ordering online, you'll want to ensure you leave time for shipping and to pick a backup plan of your original idea doesn't work out.
Give yourself options: This is a recycled tip from last week, but it's still just as important! One of the worst things you can do is order an amazing outfit for a specific event, wait days for it to get there, and then realize it's not going to work. Avoid this dilemma by ordering yourself a few options to choose from.
Don't forget about your closet: Special events or big vacations often lead to buying something new. While it's definitely fun to splurge on a few new looks, there's also no harm in being an outfit repeater. There's likely lots of things you don't even remember that you have that would be perfect for the occasion!
Coordinate with your bride tribe: One of the most fun parts of any bachelorette weekend is finding the perfect matching or coordinated looks to set your bride tribe apart. If you're into matching shirts, tanks, or even bathing suits, you'll want to start looking early to find the perfect option. A few of my favorite places to look for for graphic tees are Dixie & Dot, Wedding Favorites, and even Etsy!
We're only a few weeks away from my bachelorette weekend, so stay tuned for warm weather & beach-themed posts all month long! As it gets closer I'll be sharing outfit ideas and inspiration, and give you a peak into my packing list. Let me know what looks you want to see in the comments.
