Memorial Day Packing List




We are heading down to the famous 30A beaches of Florida for the Memorial holiday to check out the Watercolor Inn & Spa to see what's shaking and I'm pumped. Obviously packing is a process, and I think streamlining is important. Now I've totally over-streamlined before and ended up with like, a ratty tee shirt and a pair of dress pants as my only wardrobe options, so thoughtful streamlining is critical. Pack at least one outfit that is acceptable for public consumption and then figure out your loungewear situation. 

A cute coverup, like this one from Shoshanna, will serve you well-it's enough of an outfit for most beachy dining options by day and will give you confidence on the beach. Especially if you're not ready for swimsuit weather. Skinny minnies should 100% invest in a Marysia swimsuit. I heart them all. I love love love these cute and well-priced sandals from Splendid, and I really like the silver version as well. They're a tad dressier. 

I use my Lands End totes as suitcases all the time, and I love this berry color. They come in zip and non-zip options, non-zip makes for the BEST beach bag. They are such a great price point and are virtually indestructible. 

For extras, I think a floppy straw hat is not only stylish, it's practical. This one from Old Navy is a steal. While you're at it, don't forget the sunscreen; Beautycounter does an excellent, healthy SPF 30 allover version. I also think packing a statement necklace is a great move, if you throw it on with a tank top or a simple sundress you've got a look. Especially if you fumble on the clothing packing. One of the Sylvia Necklaces from Loren Hope is perfect, just pick your favorite color!
