Let me level with you. That adorable nightie that you bought for your wedding night will probably still have the tags on it when you board the plane to leave for your honeymoon. Weddings are amazing and exhausting. The good news is, the fun is not over yet and you have ample time for amazing style over the honeymoon. Don’t let the honeymoon be an afterthought. You’ll take more photos that week than the paparazzi take of Lindsay Lohan on Robertson Boulevard. Take the time to feel like a celebrity and go for it in the fashion department. Plus, you know you worked hard for that rockin’ wedding bod so might as well squeeze every bit of attention out of it.
Here is your must-have packing list for three popular honeymoon locales.
I don’t even think you are allowed into Mexico without wearing something embroidered. I love the traditional Mexican tunic, but think it’s even sassier as a minidress. Show off the work in an embellished bikini, even if this is the one and only time you’ll wear embellishment in the water. For evening, no need to get too gussied, because they take it down a notch in Mexico. Wear a cute ruffly dress in white to carry on your bridal glow a little longer. Make sure your wedges are walkable because the best parts of Mexico aren’t paved. As a memento of your honeymoon, shop the local wares and pick up an artisan necklace. And when turning out the lights, get your new hubs heart racing a skimpy cha cha bandeau and shorts.
You don’t need to be the obnoxious floral-camp-shirt clad tourist in Hawaii to look like a beach babe. Go for soft sherbet sun-kissed colors like this fun ruffly bikini. A maxi dress is mandatory, especially because you’ll look like a goddess when the afternoon breeze blows off the water. Hawaii is all about chill, so you can tempt and tease in a girly short and borrowed boy shirt. Make sure you pack plenty of light easy dresses in photo worthy colors. And two essentials you’ll live in daily: embellished flip flops and a white short to pull over your bathing suits.
The French are not afraid to wear stripes on a daily basis and look totally chic and normal doing it. Take advantage of your chic side: wear lots of black. This sheer bodysuit has such a sexy retro vibe, but is totally forgiving to wear. Not all lingerie has to be barely there. Flaunt your curves in a Herve Leger look, and you can feel free to pack the skyrocket heels for France. If you are not striped out yet, get a kitschy swimsuit to play up the nautical motif, and white jeans and a tee are a great look for shopping. You would regret not having a scarf and oversized shades, so pack those as a carry on, put them on when you arrive, and immediately feel 100 times cooler when you exit the plane.
My final favorite item for France is this black jumpsuit from Huntress Collection. You would never know by looking that this is 100% knit french terry (see it’s French). So it’s packable, versatile, and most importantly comfortable for that long plane ride over. It’s also winnable, because we are GIVING AWAY one of these beauties to a lucky gal at random.
