Vacation to a wam clime couldn’t happen sooner. My guess is its the balmy 19 degrees when I got out of bed this AM. And the holidays. They are amazing, and although Hannukah just started last night, I am already exhausted from it all. As a family, we routinely take a ski holiday out west but the overall vote this season is to be heading where it’s warm. It seems like all of us want to go somewhere to relax, unwind, read a book, and just chill. Then, I started coming up with a vacation edit I could live by.
I am on board this year to do less, not more. This is a sea change for me. I quickly realized that sometimes things are just meant to be. Maybe it’s not worth fighting to take a ski trip. I can go in January on a mini- trip with a girlfriend.
Since our decision was made, I am looking forward to reading a few books myself. First of all, I had to check in with my summer wardrobe and my skincare. I knew I need a new tote to take to the beach, and sunscreen to go inside. There is where MZ Wallace and Supergoop came to the rescue. I was almost ready for my beach vacation. Finally, before I started thinking about what to put in those bags, I put together this vacation edit to help my with some ideas. As much as I think I need so many things, I only need a few. Here is my vacation edit for a week at the beach.

Some people are natural-born packers. For the rest of us, including me, faking it means implementing simple, destination-specific formulas. When push comes to shove, the perfect suitcase is carry-on friendly and loaded with pieces that are evocative of the surroundings. Because the destination is warm and balmy, I like to pack Hawaiian print rompers, lots of white, pastels, raffia and sheer fabrics. And finally, my goal is to pack so light I will feel like I am not wearing much at all.
