Vacation Togs

Well, we fled the snow and cold and arrived in sunny Florida last week for a much-needed break. The temperatures are in the 60s, and we have had sunshine every day (even the day it rained). I've finally thawed out, and we are relaxed and happy.

I did a good job of under-packing this trip - for a change. I typically over-pack, but I really wanted to travel lightly. That means no accessories and only 3 pairs of shoes (4 if you include the sneakers for the gym). So, outside of workout wear, I tried to plan my packing so that the pieces could be coordinated together. I like light colors in Florida, so I base my packing on khaki/sand and some light accents - orange and pink. I also like a black / white or black / tan combo, so I was able to pack a few key pieces that would work with those colors.

These three outfits are examples of my vacation look. (I think I need to change up my pose a little, it's looking a little repetitive!)

  1. Can I just say how jealous I am that you're wearing sandals! I love the neutral looks.

  2. The first outfit is so "fabulous vacation, here I come!". So chic!

  3. You're back!I love the striped tunic and leggings, and hot pink pedi. You should smile in your photos more often!

  4. I'm another fan of the striped top and leggings. How I wish it was warm enough to show off my pedi in some fun shoes!

  5. As you know, I inherited your overpacking :) But I love the idea of packing things that will all work together but in different ways! I'm totally gonna use that :)

    And these outfits are all fabulous! I love the tan on tan look... very vacationey... and the orange cardigan and tops in different saturations look fabulous together!

    And that third outfit??? I LOVE IT TO PIECES! You are ROCKING the tunic/leggings combo so well!

  6. Oh, to be in Florida right now. I guess that I will have to live vicariously through you right now since it has been in the 20's and 30's here for way too long!

    You look stylish and chic but in a relaxed, comfortable way!
