Want to feel pretty on your tropical beach vacation this Summer? Of course, you do…even when you are over 60 like I am! I’m showing what to wear in Florida on vacation, which works in lots of tropical destinations like the Bahamas or Hawaii, too.
We live on the northeast coast of Florida with white sand beaches. We’ve also lived in southern (crystal clear waters of Fort Lauderdale) and central Florida where our son lives now.
We’ve got you covered today with your essential packing needs for travel in the United States. Kim from Northern California Style has gathered a group of bloggers from around the country. This is going to be fun! Their links are at the end of the post.
How To Feel Pretty On Your Tropical Vacation
In Florida in the summer months, it’s going to be HOT and humid (it’s already started). So:
- Embrace color — this is the time to pull out your most colorful wardrobe items (think Palm Beach).
- White is a good idea, too.
- Pack looser clothing that breathes like linen and cotton.
- Let your feet get some air with sandals and flip-flops, too. If going to the theme parks or playing tennis or pickleball, definitely pack sneakers.
- Gone are my bikini days but don’t forget a couple of swimsuits, cover-ups, a hat, and sunscreen.
What To Wear To Lunch/Shopping
This eyelet dress comes in white and black too. You could wear white cropped cotton leggings if you don’t want to show your legs and it becomes a tunic top. (I use Jergens Natural Glow fair to medium on my legs).
The dress is lined and cute in person.
This is a J. Jill linen dress from last year. There are new colors here.

What To Wear To Dinner
I wore this linen blend dress with dark navy embroidery to dinner in Orlando on Mother’s Day. It was humid but I was cool in this dress.
I am wearing the above caftan in turquoise in the group photo at the end of the post. Very comfortable.
Feel Pretty On Your Tropical Beach Vacation In A Maxi Dress
My friend, Jules and my sister and I all like this cool cotton, Somerset dress with pockets. There are other colors, too, many come in regular, petite, and tall.
