“What should I pack for my vacation?” My answer is always the same, even if your vacation is only a short weekend getaway. Classic basics in the colors and silhouettes that flatter you can be mixed and matched endlessly. With the addition of accessories, you can be well dressed for most occasions with very few pieces.
I was relaxing with Mr. Mickey on the deck wearing white jeans and a navy tee last evening. As we discussed the next subject for the blog, he suggested I show the versatility of what I was wearing. So this is a first for me to throw some things in a tote, drive to a bank parking lot, and take a few pictures of lounging-at-home attire jazzed up for a pretend travel day. (My thanks to him for also taking these pictures.)
A large basket tote is my favorite for shopping at the farmer’s market or strolling around a beach town. Navy and white with accents of tan is my color scheme today. Prints, patterns, and trendy details make garments less mixable and more memorable, so I keep everything simple and solid.
A jewel neckline tee that stops mid-hip is ideal for my inverted triangle shape. I bought the navy tee here in a petite medium for a better length. The white ankle jeans are here. The denim jacket is here. The saddle-colored sandals are here. The tote is from MAR Y SOL, and the taupe leather bag below was from Coach. The basic sneakers were from Banana Republic Factory. I’m happy to share where my items are from and a link if still available.
The sandals were from Stuart Weitzman, and the bag is here. The oversized scarf is several years old.
If our weekend getaway included time by the pool or a beach, I could use the oversized scarf as a pareo over the suit. My swimsuit is here.
