Dressing for a Cruise

When planning a major vacation like cruising,  clothing tends to be at the top of the list.  What will you wear to the beach, to dinner, formal night, lounging on the deck, in port, to the club Oh my gosh how will my suitcase fit everything?!  First calm down, breath and let me tell you there is no dress code or any one style to follow.  Again, I watched a lot of videos about what people wore.  You have to find your own style and comfort levels.  I am going to share a few things I wore, what I wish I had or what I packed and decided not to wear at all.

You will see from my photos I wore play suits (rompers), dresses and shorts.These were my favorite outfits to wear. I had packed one pair of jean capris, khaki shorts, and a play suit that wasn’t as comfy as the other two I bought that I never wore. I also packed a pair of chunky black wedges that never saw the light of day and three gym outfits… I went to the gym once. I had good intentions.  Here is a look at what I wore.

 

 

The dress above, the shorts and playsuit came from Ross. The little white boat shoes with the bow were $8 at Walmart and the tan sandals are from Payless.  For formal night DH bought my dress for me for my birthday back in December from Macy’s.  The dining room is a tad cool so the long sleeves did not bother me.

I liked my nautical style clothing.  I felt very in place. It’s just the vibe 😉

Day three I wore the same playsuit as day one because it was very easy to use over my bikini.  Quick off and on.  It was great 🙂 This next playsuit I wore in Progreso , I also got at Ross for $16, the visor I bought last year at Walmart for around $4, they have them again this year (2018), a nice pair of $6 sunglasses and the crossbody bag I saw so many people use and recommend on packing lists and OOTD’s. I did not want to wear one, I didn’t think it was me, but that little crossbody bag was great! I held our passports, my phone, money and lipstick ;). Very handy item, I suggest it 100%

Under this sarong is a cute little inexpensive blue bikini I got at Walmart with a ruched bottom. I had read the ruching is flattering on the booty, they were right ;).  DH bought me the sarong when he was in Kuwait.  He brought back a few styles and colors. I really liked wearing this. There are so many ways to tie these.  Watch tutorials, you will see :D.

The only thing I wore not shown is a soft dress I also got at Ross for $12.  That is an excellent place to stock up on new vacation outifts.  You do not have to spend a fortune to look nice and comfy :).  I basically recycled these looks.  You will not be in the same outfit for that long.  What you put on the morning is not what you will wear to dinner, or to lay out in the sun in.  It is very Downton, you get to have an outfit change for what ever you are doing and dinner.  How lovely.
