What I Packed for Anna Maria Island

February 3, 2022


Erin Schrader

Grab your suitcase and schedule a pedi, let’s go on vacay! While we may be smack-dab in the middle of a blizzard here in Indiana, the majority of us have sunshine and blue skies on the brain. The winter wonderland really is beautiful, but on day three of being snowed in, you can’t blame a girl for day dreaming about palm trees and piña coladas. If you too, are thinking about warmer days ahead or have a tropical getaway on the calendar – you’re in the right spot. After a quick trip to Anna Maria Island [you can find all the details about our visit here!], we’re sharing everything I packed for the trip! Break out your luggage and pour a Mai Tai, here are 10 Warm Weather Outfits to Pack for Your Next Vacation!

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!

PS. I shared all the details from our Anna Maria Island trip here! Where to stay, where to eat, what to do when you get there – is all right here. I’ll see you there, friends! 😉
