My 7 Must-Have Vacation Items


This week we are taking a road trip to the beach for a mini vacation. Words can’t describe how excited I am to get a break from the frigid weather here (this morning it is -9!) I am making it a priority to pack light and simple unlike my usual load of suitcases and totes. Since we are driving down, I know that I will have to start out pretty bundled up, and take off layers as we go. This leads to number one on my list: leggings. I plan to pair them with a chunky sweater and cute sneakers. This way all I have to do when we hit warmer temperatures is change to a lighter top. Number 2, a fedora: hats have become a wardrobe staple for me. My fedora will keep the sun off of my face, and conceal any crazy hair days I have from the ocean air. Number 3, a structured jacket  to layer over my sun dresses for chilly nights and to wear on the trip back home. Number 4, Victoria Secret’s Rockin’ Body Leg Shine: for my already fair skin that hasn’t seen sun in months. Enough said. Number 5, Essie’s As Gold As It Gets glitter polish: I like to use this as a top coat for my polishes to up their staying power. Number 6, aviators, my favorite style of sunglasses, and the most flattering since I have a smaller head that is easily overwhelmed by most frames. Finally, number seven, snacks for the road: I get terrible motion sickness, so I probably will try to stay away from eating heavy meals until we are at our destination. Baked lentil chips and Jelly Belly jelly beans will be my snack of choice for the long drive. XOXO
