As you may have heard WE’RE GIVING AWAY A TRIP TO JAMAICA! You should enter. Jamaica is the perfect warm destination for any occasion: vacation, vow renewal, destination wedding, bachelorette party, or honeymoon (more on that here). In addition to winning airfare and accommodations at Moon Palace Jamaica  for two the winner will receive $800+ worth of haircare products from amika, a $500+ credit to Zola, and an 8 day rental from Rent The Runway! So basically the winner is going to have the most stylish trip ever. Dreaming about what you’d pack if you won this prize? Here are my recommendations:

Rent The Runway

I just wore this Tanya Taylor top yesterday in the city with jeans but would be perfect for a beachy vacay! It’s super light and the pattern is very tropical. Plus, my husband said I looked pretty in it so… honeymoon! On a vacation I’d pair it with white shorts or linen pants.

I vote for more selfie mirrors on the streets. V into my favorite new @renttherunway top by @tanyataylor. #myrtr

I wore this Nicholas dress to a recent amika + Love Stories TV event and got so many compliments! I love off-the-shoulder (can you tell?) and the light cotton material is perfect for hot weather. I’d wear this either out to dinner or daytime shopping on a Jamaican honeymoon.

I can’t stop wearing this Tory Burch bag! The color is so unique for a bag but also goes with everything and it’s the perfect size. I’d wear this shopping or exploring a town during the day and to dinner at night.


I’m obsessed with all amika products and whoever wins this prize is such a lucky duck. For a vacation to Jamaica I would pack this amika mousse. I have curly hair which only gets curlier in warm weather — and my husband loves my hair curly so on my honeymoon I embraced the volume! This mousse is great because it defines my curls but is super lightweight — no crunch.


I use this amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask as a conditioner when I’m wearing my hair curly. It smells amazing, leaves my hair super soft, and really moisturizes so my curls don’t frizz.


My favorite piece of luggage I’ve ever owned is my Arlo Skye suitcase and Zola carrys them! I NEVER CHECK BAGS — airlines simply cannot be trusted. This little suitcase fits so much stuff. Plus it has an iPhone charger and super smooth wheels. I love love love it. Justin, my husband, has one too!

When I’m traveling I want to look my best but also keep things easy (see rant above about re: never checking luggage). I love these Gorjana studs and wear them on practically every vacation. They go with everything and can be mix/matched with other Gorjana earrings if I want to mix things up a bit. They’re beautiful quality but not so expensive that I’d be too upset if I lost one in the ocean 😉


Creating this packing list only made me more jealous of the lucky duck who wins this giveaway! Good luck and don’t hesitate to DM me @racheljosilver for more recommendations, and if you’re planning a wedding/honeymoon/bachelorette in Jamaica — or just want to see more of this beautiful island —watch real weddings in Jamaica HERE.
