Sunshine Days

2010 April 28

I leave for Florida in one hour. Well, I leave for the airport in one hour, but let’s not be too technical. What matters is that I’ve got my suitcase packed, my snacks at the ready, and my flip flops on! I have a post or two planned, but the blog will be quiet, for the most part, until I return on Tuesday.

Planning for this kind of trip is always a teensy bit stressful in that I’m still wearing boots, tights, and scarves–how to transition into 80-degree weather? I’m always cautious when it comes to packing–my travel day wear isn’t too exciting: layers and comfort are essential here, so I went with a short-sleeved t-shirt, a long-sleeved t-shirt, a hoodie, jeans, and flip flops. To jazz it up a little bit, I added my owl earrings and some bright blue nail polish on my fingers–both of which have already received compliments today.

As for the rest of my suitcase, I’ve got:

1 bathing suit (circa 10 years ago, but when you’re pinching pennies, it will do)

1 beach skirt

3 sundresses

2 cardigans

3 t-shirts

2 tank tops

1 jean skirt

1 fancy skirt

2 pairs of flip flops

1 pair of dressier sandals

1 pair of flats

I think this should be enough to get me through to Monday night! What are your go-to packing and travel staples?

    Hope you’ve had a great trip! Sounds like you packed perfectly. I’ve found as I’ve gotten older *cough cough* I’ve simplified the packing. A bathing suit, a bunch of sundresses, some sandals and I’m done :)
