Actually, that IS our view!!! From EVERY room!!! I'm still kind of pinching myself to be sure that that's actually where we'll be for a week. The house has a ton of indoor/outdoor space, an amazing pool and even a little bridge (for some reason that's one of the most exciting things to me?).
And, while I am SUPER excited for the sunshine and relaxation, I also welcome another excuse to shop!! So, in my planning, I've come up with a few things I absolutely have to pack (things I already have)...
-Cuffed Denim Shorts
-Striped Terry Shorts (probably my favorite)
-White Linen Button Down
-Beach Bag (I have a go-to pink Lacoste bag that's pretty much become our official
-Easy Maxi Dresses (need a couple more of these)
-My Oversized Kate Spade Straw Hat
-Basic Tees (I have a few JCrew tees that I live in)
and of course I have a lot of other pieces I COULD bring....but I'd rather buy the following...
First of all, um HOW CUTE IS THAT BEACH TOWEL??!!
In other news...
I've been trying to replace a yellow polka dot bikini I left at a hotel in Spain when I was 17 for about, well, since then. I finally found one I liked from J.Crew. I'll definitely be adding a floral print bikini to my list as well. Those clear acrylic sandals are TA DIE for- I'm a total sucker for bows and studs. And, I've been wanting to add some patterned silk and lace options into my shorts collection- denim and chinos can only get a gal so far. I plan on pairing the lace ones with an easy graphic tee for travel and the patterned ones with a more fitted, tucked in tank and a fedora. Add some bold colors into the lipstick, sarong and sunhat (bold lip + perfectly sunkissed skin = perfection) for beach going and I think I'll have a tropical win.
SO, now I have to go convince my husband I need to order all this stuff....HA. Maybe the beach towel isn't a necessity?
What are you bringing on your winter getaways? Any good book suggestions? Did I miss any island essentials?
