The Packing List: Winter Weekend Beach Escape

Traveling with a toddler can feel like you’re traveling with a party of 10. They require a lot of stuff: diapers, sippy cups filled with milk and water, snacks, entertainment, toys and lots of clothing since they tend to wear their food during every meal.

As our family is preparing for a weekend beach escape, I’m attempting to minimize all of our packing and keep it fun and light. Luckily Old Navy just launched its new spring line and it’s all nautical and all adorable. Hit up the store this week for a few new pieces as we take on Omni Amelia Island for a few days of Vitamin Sea. Here’s our packing list by family member:

“The Active 2-year old”

This little guy is always on the go and goes through outfits like they’re going out of style. Aside from the obvious diapers, PJs and sippy cups, here the fashion 411 for W:

  • Two (2) pairs of colorful shorts and one (1) pair of chinos
  • Three (3) nautical inspired graphic tees and one (1) linen oxford shirt complete with boats
  • Boat shoes and flip flops
  • Board shorts and rash guard
  • Crabtastic puddle jumper float
  • Hat
  • Tons of sunscreen


“The 30-Something Mama”

I make every day a fashion occasion and love theming out my wardrobe, so naturally a weekend getaway to the beach in Florida means stripes and flamingos.

  • Nautical inspired boat neck top
  • White jeans
  • Neutral sandals
  • Sundress
  • Striped blouse (will pair with white jeans for a BOGO outfit)
  • Floral one piece swimsuit
  • Flamingo cover up from fave boutique Loli & the Bean
  • Flamingo flip flops
  • Diffwear sunnies
  • Panama hat


“The 30-Something Papa”

  • Assortment of graphic tees
  • Three (3) pairs of shorts
  • One button down
  • One pair if jeans
  • Board shorts
  • Boat shoes
  • Flip flops


So excited for our little family to have a beach escape. Plans include pool and splash pad fun, nature center visit, playground, family fire, casual fare, drinks and Sunday Brunch.

Since this is our first time visiting Omni Amelia Island and the San Fernandina Beach area, I’ll be posting photos
