Next week I’m headed on hiatus to AZ– Arizona. A little sun, a little pool time, a little cactus viewing is just what this mama needs to recharge her batteries! I put together an abbreviated Sunshine and Seventies Getaway Packing List back in February.
With my trip now days away, I wanted to put together a real-time guide for those essentials I’ll actually be packing. You can see the entire list of items below. Then browse some fun outfit combos I’m planning to wear!
The pieces I’m packing: white blouse, black blouse, striped tee, denim skirt, eyelet shorts, overall shorts, little white dress, practical sandals, easy espadrilles, travel sweatshirt, two pair of sunnies (here and here), panama hat, swimwear.
Add to that my small attache of travel beauty products, my underwear, and a good book and I’m OFF!!!
Perfect Purse Pairings
First things first, choose your carry on, and the purse you are going to need when you arrive! I love this tote from Madewell. It’s minimal design is both chic and utilitarian.
This saddle bag stands the test of every outfit. My favorite cross-body pairs perfectly with everything from dresses to skirts, from frayed shorts to flared denim. I love it!
Fly away! An easy tee shirt, walkable shoes, and an on-trend skirt will keep me comfortable while traveling. Don’t forget a shirt or jacket for the unpredictable airplane cabin weather 😉
It never fails. I arrive at the resort and the first place I head is the pool! I might as well get my Vitamin D recharge going immediately!
It is nice to dress down on vacation. To just throw on a coverup and some flip flops and call it good. But it’s also fun to bring something that you can dress up in. This LWD fits the bill perfectly!
Without a doubt there will be shopping involved. Hit the shops in something cute and pulled together. I can’t hide my love for the overall trend. Casual with a tom-boy twist. I love it.
Drinks in Town
I have been know to get to my hotel or resort on these mini-vacays and roost! As in, I don’t leave the area for much of anything. Drinks at the pool. Dinners on site. But sometimes it’s fun to explore the area you’re in (depending on the amount of total down-time you need!)
Home Again, Home Again
That’s a wrap! Until next year, that is! It won’t really matter that you smell of sunshine and sunscreen. Throw on your most comfortable outfit and head home.
