Summer is almost over and it’s time to get out of Dodge! I don’t know about you, but I need a vacation from my town. Don’t get me wrong. I love where I live, but I need a change of scenery. So I’m packing my bags (and the kids’ bags) and I’ll be gone like the wind…well at least for a couple of weeks
I love a weekend away at the beach, but oddly the packing is a nightmare! I literally can’t stand it. You have to pack so many items “just in case.” Are the evenings cold? You need a light sweater. Are you going out for dinner? You need a cute dress. Then the swimsuits and coverups and the clothes to change in to after the beach? When I see other articles or posts with a bikini, a dress you can use as a cover up and to wear out and, with a hat, sunglasses and a pair of sandals, I say bullshit. Here is what I packed for a 2 night, 3 day trip to the beach
It is summer in the northern hemisphere and therefore it’s time to enjoy everything that Mother Nature has to offer. And it’s also the centennial anniversary of the U.S. National Park system, if that’s your kind of thing. Granted, hiking, trekking, and generally traipsing through the wilderness aren’t necessarily the most fashionable pursuits, but it is possible to still look pretty chic in the woods, desert, mountains, rainforest or environment of your choice.
I realize I should do a post on what to pack for a quick beach weekend away, and I will soon (as I am going away for a beach weekend by the end of summer). But in the meantime, if you are traveling somewhere for just a few days, you need to consider Savvy Travelers. I don’t know about you, but my toiletries take up most of my carry-on bag. There’s hardly room for my clothes, not to mention shoes. Or if you take short business trips you already know it’s no fun trying to stuff your beauty and skincare products into those tiny 3.4 oz containers allowed in the overhead bins on planes. I wind up checking my bag because I can’t be bothered. Not anymore!
We’re smack dab in the middle of global Fashion Week. First stop as always was New York City, home of the ensemble of black on black with a little more black. Following up is one of my favorite places for architecture, history and style (and not just for fashion week): London!
