Let's just say timing was perfect to take off for a little respite
. Five glorious days away in a climate that's warm during the day and cools down beautifully at night. Packing is simpler than you think.
I like to pack power basics when traveling
to get as many looks as possible with a few key pieces. In fact, there are even more combinations to be had! One floor length tube skirt/dress, one above-the-knee skirt, one pair of white jeans and a few tops. Since my head is wrapped around fall
, I'd wear a mostly neutral palette during this time of year. And I love the idea of packing just black and white.
To continue the streamlined packing, keep your accessories focused. You really only need a few necklaces, with one doubling as a belt (shown above with outfits), one fabulous pair of vintage earrings, one watch, one statement cuff, one clutch, a vibrant summer weight scarf and three pairs of shoes — black sandals, neutral metallic wedge sandals and tan flip flops.
Obviously, you will live in beach attire the majority of the time. Mix + match bikinis certainly fit the bill. Throw in some chic bathing suit cover-ups, pretty enough to go out in!
Don't forget the ever important beach essentials: oversized sunhat, sunglasses, water, books, heavy duty sunscreen — All Terrain AquaSport for beach days and become Day Screen for shopping excursions.
Grab your significant other and go, already!
