Shopping for a Summer Beach Vacation with Desirelist

June 20, 2016

I don’t know about y’all, but the the last month has been a crazy one for me.  Between trips to the Hamptons for Memorial Day Weekend (read about it here), Ohio, McAllen (on the border of Mexico) for work, and getting ready for a trip to Cabo (TOMORROW! AHHH), I’ve been running around like a crazy person. On top of all of these trips, I’ve also had to buy a few gifts for birthdays, weddings, father’s day, and of course, I had to shop for vacation outfits.

One thing that has made my life a bit easier is Desirelist.  Desirelist is a platform where people can make lists, kind of like registries, for items that they want.  It makes it so much easier to buy gifts for people.  I always stress about what I’m going to get someone because I always want it to be perfect and something that they will love.  I usually spend hours and hours searching for the perfect thing, and to be honest, I just did not have time to do that this month.  I’ve been working crazy long 12+ hour days to try to get all of my work done so that I won’t have to work while I’m out of town, so my online shopping time has been significantly decreased and forget about taking any trips to the mall because ain’t nobody got time for that!  Thankfully, Desirelist exists.  Desirelist takes the guessing completely out of gift giving.  I don’t have to worry about whether my dad will like the shirt I bought him because he’s the one that put it on his Desirelist.  I won’t have to spend 3 hours online shopping or going to the mall to search for something because I already know what to get.  It’s so easy and so helpful.  Definitely check it out.

Since I’ve been planning this trip to Cabo, I made a desirelist of a bunch of items that are perfect when you’re shopping for a summer beach vacation.  I added the cuuuutest pompom sandals, a few sun hats, a straw beach bag, a fun flamingo beach towel (for $7.99!), a Kiini suit that I love, and some perfect cover-ups.  I also added some white short overalls that I’ve been eyeing, cut-off shorts by my absolute favorite brand EVER (I won’t wear jeans or shorts by anyone else now, FRAME DENIM is just too good), and some perfect vacation tops.  Check out my full desirelist here!  Xo, AL
