Off to Vacationland

Striped shirt: American Apparel; Cut-Offs: Old; Khaki Shorts: J.Crew outlet; Bathing Suit: J.Crew;
Necklace: Spotted Moth; Fragrance: OLO Lightning Paw ; Duffle: Dad's from College

Packing for Maine in the summer is so deceptively simple, compared to what I have to bring in January. In the winter time we can't get away with fewer than three bags each, but in the summer this is (almost) all I need. I feel like I'm forgetting something! Bug-spray? Bug-spray.

I'm off to spend 24 hours at my moms house, most of which will be yard work. I'm hoping to sneak off to the beach tomorrow afternoon though (shh...).

Have a lovely weekend!

I too love packing for holidays in the summertime. Packing for winter travel creates so much bulk. Enjoy your vacation!

Hi sweetheart! I hope you made it to the beach :) I love your stripey bikini, totally chic. I got a swimsuit yesterday, absolutely bonkers, full on leopard, but I figure I can get away with it, it is camouflage after all. Hugs to you!
