Life is too short of having missed out on vacations for the last twenty years, so I am taking another one. The new destination is Amelia Island. The weather will be much warmer than the last time I visited Florida, so I am more carefully planning what to take in my carry-on for the week-long stay.
I bought this A-line cotton dress in a pale bluish-gray and also in navy. Nothing is cooler than a dress that falls from your shoulders without clinging to anything along the way down. The darts, button front, and V-neck detail also appealed to me.
Air conditioners are often set to Arctic Blast in the south, so I know I will get cold when I go into a building. I will be sure to take a cotton cardigan with me. That’s my trusty several years old BCBG bamboo handle bag above. The shoes are by Marc Fisher. I cannot wear the typical flat soft espadrilles due to supination, so this platform style is a more supportive option.
Creating a visual packing list on Polyvore helped me plan last time, so I have done that again. This trip will be a packing challenge. I moved from the New Orleans area back to East Tennessee in 2003, so I have forgotten how to dress in hot, humid weather.
