Eva Amurri shares her Kids' Packing List for the Dominican Republic

We leave today for The Dominican Republic, and to say our family is excited would be an understatement!!! Ian and I booked this trip almost a year ago, and it will be our first official family vacation with Ian! It will also be my first beach vacation in about four years. I cannot wait to visit the beautiful Dominican Republic and swim in the ocean, walk on the beach, and soak up the sun! I’m really hoping we have good weather there, I think we all need some Vitamin D. I chose an all-inclusive resort (not sponsored) because I loved the experience of going to an all-inclusive with the kids in the past. It’s just so much easier for us at this phase of life. Plus, they supposedly have an awesome kids’ club– so Ian and I get drop them in a camp-like setting and walk the beach just the two of us, or grab an hour of quiet by the pool. If we love the resort, I will definitely share all about it!

The kids have outgrown a lot of their summer clothes, so I had to buy them some things to take on this vacation. Today, I thought I’d share a little list of all the cute items I found for them to take on our trip. We’re spending Easter there as well, so I made sure to pack a nice Easter outfit for dinner for each of them. It’s a tradition for us to dress up for Easter, and I wasn’t going to let that slide on vacay! I loved picking out their outfits. I know it’s probably not much longer that they’ll let me do it…and even a shorter amount of time that they’ll let me match them to each other. I am fully committed while I can be!

Kids' Packing List

Pop Star Patch Set


This set I got for Marlowe is so cute, and I love that it can be mixed with other pieces she already owns!

Botanical Button-Front Sleeveless Printed Dress


I packed this adorable dress for Marlowe to wear on Easter! I favor more traditional Easter dresses.

JP Short


The boys needed new shorts, so I ordered these. I love the pale green color!

Kids Board Shorts


Loving these swim trunks for the boys. They’re so colorful but not over the top.

Tate Set


This Terry set is great for transitioning from the pool to lunch.

Girls' fishtail-hem short in chino


Marlowe loves layering shorts over her swimsuits instead of coverups. These are a fave!

Rainbow Wave Short Set


I got this rainbow set for Marlowe, but I want it for me! The piping is so fabulous.

Boys' short-sleeve critter polo shirt


I love these unique critter polos for the boys! I bought them both in lavender and in green!

Kids' short-sleeve garment-dyed polo shirt


These slub polos are another one of my faves for the boys for vacay!

Boys' dock short in midweight stretch chino


I always pack these shorts for the boys on beach vacations because they can be dressed up or down and the elastic waist is comfy.

Girls' sporty-strap sandals in colorblock


Marlowe can’t keep flip-flops on her feet, so we love these strappy sandals for the beach!

Resort Shirt Short-Sleeve Button-Up


This adorable Hawaiian shirt is unisex, and has a coordinating set of shorts you can buy to make a set.

Kids' Birkenstock® Arizona Sandals


Major loves a Birkenstock. So cute.

Zip-Front Rashguard One-Piece Swimsuit for Girls


Marlowe loves a rashguard swimsuit, so I ordered her this one. I love that there are family matching opportunities too!

This suit is another fave from our recent haul. There is even a matching rash guard!

Short-Sleeve Printed Poplin Shirt for Boys


I ordered these button-ups for the boys, and I got Ian a matching one, too! I can’t wait to see them wearing them.

Unisex Sugarcane-Blend Pool Slide Sandals for Toddler


These pool slides are a great option for Mateo because they have an adjustable strap in the back to keep them on his feet!

Unisex Long-Sleeve Rashguard Swim Top & Trunks for Toddler


I love this rashguard set because it looks way more expensive than it is, and is cheerful yet not filled with logos and images.

Puff-Sleeve Jersey-Knit Romper for Girls


I ordered this cute romper for Marlowe to slip on at night, or over her bathing suit. It’s on mega sale, too!

Garment Dye Hoodie


These are our favorite garment-dyed beach hoodies. The quality is excellent, and I love that there are coordinating sweatpants if you want a full set.

Butterfly Cross Back Dress


If your little girl loves butterflies like mine does, this dress is a must!
