Spain Summer Packing list – The Fitnessista

Sharing a Spain packing list and all of the things I packed for our trip!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far. The kids and I are off to a base event, and I’m looking forward to a hot yoga class later today.

I’ll share a full recap of our amazing trip to Spain next week, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a packing list with some of the things I brought!

Spain summer packing list

Wear on the way there and back:

(I did a couple of loads of laundry while we were at the Airbnb)

Spanx Air essentials set. I’m always cold on planes and this keeps me warm, and is comfy enough to sleep in


My goal with travel dresses is to bring short ones I can wear with sneakers during the day, and just swap to dressy sandals for dinner at night. I also brought a couple of dinner-only dresses. I found that the vibe there was pretty casual and anything goes (besides athleisure. Don’t do it lol). Skirts, shorts, dresses, with sandals and sneakers all worked.

Daytime dresses:

This floral mini dress (so cute with the white Vejas)

High-neck traveler mini dress

A Maeve short sleeve collared mini shirt dress (OOS right now and I can’t find anything similar)

Hutch mini shirt dress (size down)

Rails striped dress

Ulla Johnson dress

Derek Lam flutter sleeve dress

An old Madewell short floral dress

Dinner dresses:

Farm Rio ocean tapestry dress. SO pretty, true to size, and on sale right now.

Embroidered Farm Rio dress. The details on this are exquisitive. It was a splurge, but I’ve worn it so many times already. This one is on sale right now, too!

Crochet-style maxi dress

This red dress from RTR that was perfect for flamenco night 😉

Tops, skirts, and shorts:

This skort with this bodysuit

I also brought a pair of jean shorts with an embroidered top but didn’t wear it

Workout gear:

I knew I’d likely not get in official workouts, but I just brought some leggings and sports bras in case I could do Sculpt Society at the Airbnb while we were just hanging out, and also some shorts and a tank top for paddlebaording

Vuori tank and shorts (2 sets)

1 pair of lulu leggings and an Align tank


I brought my fave Vuori bikini and wore it with jean shorts, this coverup, and this visor


Veja low-top sneakers

Valentino sandals

Vivobarefoots (in case I could sneak in a workout- they actually stayed in my suitcase)

Flat brown sandals


Our suitcases are worth a shout out because we love them. They’re not expensive, huge, and excellent quality. We have three of these from Nordstrom Rack.

Handbags – I brought my Gucci camera bag, a leather crossbody I got in Italy last summer, and ordered this really inexpensive one from Amazon for nights out. I was super impressed by the quality!

This travel pillow! I’m a side sleeper, so this was a literal dream come true for the plane

Melatonin. I tested out some melatonin before our trip to see if it would help me sleep on the plane. Usually I’m too anxious and toss and turn. I CRASHED OUT. It was everything! Obviously talk with your doctor before taking new new supplements, but this is the first time I haven’t been jet-lagged; it helped me reset my circadian rhythm. You can use FITNESSISTA10 here.

Toiletries, especially my Oliveda face cream, eye care goodies, tinted SPF, and makeup

I have another post planned soon with weird things I bring on vacation 😉

Also, it’s worth mentioning that Rent the Runway is SO worth it for trips. I love using it to try new brands – I’ll often end up buying the things I love – and I feel like it’s a sustainable way to rotate through a lot of pieces. You can use my referral link for 30% off your first month.

Have a wonderful day and I’ll see ya soon!
