Carnival Cruise Swim and Beach Outfits

Here is what I wore to the beach and pool on the Carnival Elation girls trip! It had been years since I update my swimwear collection, so I started fresh for this trip. I prefer to mix and match my collection so when I’m buying I always keep into account what I already have and what will work together. I typically pair a print with a solid, but sometimes I like to mix prints like floral and gingham. Here is my current swimwear collection!

Junkanoo Beach | Nassau, Bahamas

To be honest this was my least favorite part of the trip. You can read my review of this spot in my Carnival Elation Review. My swim top is from two years ago at Target that has been one of my goto’s every summer. If you’re smaller busted, a ruffle detail will be your best friend! My high waist lemon bottoms were a little out of my comfort zone, but I felt so comfortable sitting on the beach with a little extra coverage! The material is higher quality than I’m used to in swimwear, and the small fit me perfectly.

Another ruffle detail top, see what I mean by best friend?! The material on this top is so soft. It feels more expensive than it is. I ordered a small and skipped out on the matching bottoms. One drawback to this top is it ties in the back so you will start to notice the knot when you’re lounging in a chair. My straw tote has been a favorite all throughout summer (seen here and here).  I received a lot of questions about my self-tanner after posting this pic. I applied this self-tanner Tuesday and Wednesday night before the cruise and touched up with one of these tan towels after the first long day at the beach.  I talked more about the touch-up self-tanner in this post. If you’re curious I’m sipping on a guava margarita, yum!

It was a hot 15-20 minute walk to Junkanoo beach from the boat. There are a ton of local shops. I wore an old maxi skirt (also seen here) and my go-to Tory Burch sandals for the trip. I carried this backpack to hold my beach necessities.

Freeport, Bahamas | Taino Beach

This was by far the best day of the cruise. The beach was gorgeous! You can tell I really love my white fedora, I’ve had it for 5 years! It’s from Tory Burch but I found one that is very similar! I also wanted to point out that I left my engagement ring at home and just wore my band on the trip. I didn’t want to chance it slipping off in the water so I played it safe and left it at home.

We didn’t waste any time going through the shopping area right by the port, but this was taken at one of the huts while waiting on a taxi to go to Taino Beach. I wore this scalloped coverup. It was breathable and comfortable for the ride.

Happy Monday! Be sure to read my review on the Carnival Elation to hear my overall thoughts on the trip.

  • Found the perfect striped tee to layer under all your Fall vests (on sale for $12 online only). I sized up to a M for the perfect fit. I’ve bought multiple options for this popular button skirt trend and this one is the keeper! It feels way more expensive than it actually is...all the others felt so cheap! Have you picked one up for the season? I’ve been loving skirts this Fall!

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)
