Good morning! So excited to share a few looks I’m packing for our Spring Break next week. We are heading to Grand Cayman (I’d appreciate any recs in the comments!) and I can’t wait to see those tropical Caribbean waters and just soak up some sunshine with my family. I may be ambitious packing some dressier looks, I know for the most part I’ll be living in jean shorts – I just ordered another pair of my favorites, I order a size up – and bathing suits. We have another trip coming up in May for my girlfriends birthday so I may be saving a couple of these for then.

It has been years since I bought any sort of “resort wear” so shopping for this trip as been fun πŸ™‚

  1. I love the Cayman Islands! My friend lived there for 6 years so I went to visit her every year. We were in our 20’s so the scene was much different, unfortunately I don’t have family friendly recommendations. Also, it was before COVID so I hope these places are still open! If you can, Sunday brunch is a must – Blue Cilantro or the Ritz were the best. A trip to Rum Point is fun, either by boat or by car. Machabuka was one of my favorite restaurants for fresh seafood and the Sunshine Grille (connected to Sunshine Suite Resorts) is fun for lunch with the best burgers and homemade ice cream! As crazy as it sounds there is an amazing Italian restaurant called Casanova and if you sit outside you’re right on the water, it has good ambience too!

    Don’t waste your time going to “Hell”, it’s just a bunch of rock formations and very hot. I’ve heard the Turtle Rescue is fun for families. The downtown area is very touristy and caters to the cruise ships that stop there but a good place to get t-shirts for the family. You can’t go wrong with any beach off seven mile but we always found good snorkeling off Cemetery Beach, which is public access and not connected to a resort.

    Have the best time and wear sunscreen!

    1. hi there, i am actually planning a trip with another couple for our 40th birthdays. where should we stay?!?! no kids!
      thanks πŸ™‚

      1. Hi Katie – I always stayed at my friend’s place when I went to visit but she said her family enjoyed the Westin or the Marriott, which are both on Seven Mile Beach. I think more all resorts have opened since I used to visit but they are pricey. I spent a day at Morritt’s Grand Resort, we went scuba diving in the morning then got to stay for the rest of the afternoon. It was nice but is on the East End so if you don’t have a car you’re kind of stuck there.

  2. We just got back from Spring Break with our boys (10 and 12). We loved it- beach is AMAZING! We mainly stayed at Kimpton SeaFire which had so many activities for the boys, but we also did a charter with Cobalt to see Stingray City, Starfish Point and snorkel which the boys loved! Coccoloba, Calypso Grill and Macabuca were some of our favorite restaurants! We did go to the Turtle Center and it was fine, but my boys did not love it as I think they were too old for it!

  3. Enjoy Grand Cayman! Agree on all the recs for Seven Mile Beach and definitely check out dining options + spa at Kimpton Seafire Resort – it’s amazing!

  4. Grand Cayman is our absolute favorite vacation spot and a lot of fun with a family. Here are some suggestions: Stingray City, Camana Bay, take ferry from Camana Bay to Rum Point, bioluminescent kayak trip, Sunset grill for fish tacos, Lobster Pot for dinner (kids can feed tarpon at sunset), Sunday brunch at Marriott, drinks or dinner at Four Seasons and Kimpton resorts, buy a Tortuga Rum Cake at grocery, Casa 43 for margaritas and great mexican food, snorkeling is amazing. Enjoy your week with the family.

  5. Cayman is my favorite place in the Caribbean. My best friend is a photographer there
    (Heather Holt Photography) if you want to take some nice family photos, she knows all the best spots. Yoshi’s for sushi (I’ve seen kids there), the brunch at the Marriott is really nice and kid friendly. Rackam’s, Rum Point, Sunshine Grill, Calypso. Rum Point is fun for kids and Barkers Park is beautiful for a quiet walk, lots of iguanas to spot. Depending on where you stay, most resorts have activities for kids during the day and at dinner time. Go to the Ritz for the best pina colada and bourbon selection.

  6. Great outfits! Where is the rainbow bag from in your first picture? I know you linked a similar but I would love to try and hunt down the one from your photo!
