"It is a great art to saunter".....

..... said Henry David Thoreau...... and I plan on perfecting that art over the next couple of weeks as we enjoy what is likely to be our last U.S. annual beach vacation in a while.  

In addition to one mother, three daughters, my guy, and an insane amount of sunscreen and beach toys..... here's what I'll be packing for our daily adventures toes in sand style..... 

The classic:  LLBean tote
JCrew sunhat - you will never catch me by the pool or at the beach without this on
JCrew bathing suit - I practice what I post.... this is the one that came home with me this year
Vitamin Water Zero.... my favorite form of liquid refreshment
Baggu - for wet suits and such
White sheet - In my opinion, the absolute best thing to lay on at the beach..... reflects light and is cool, quick drying and easy to shake off and wash..... it's just like jumping into a freshly made bed with the ultimate view
Kayce Hughes tunic cover-up..... I couldn't resist this one this year....... nor anything currently available in her shop
Baby powder:  The only thing I don't enjoy about the beach..... taking the sand with us where it is not wanted..... I plan on trying this trick this year
Net for catching shells and such..... to add to our collection at home
The Darlings.... and a stack full of magazines that I've been looking forward to enjoying sans other technology beckoning for my attention.

I'll catch up with you when I return!  


  1. Have fun! The darlings is a good read.

  2. Glamorous and classic beach attire. So thankful we won't be on the same in my skirted bathing suit

  3. Enjoy every minute! That suit is too pretty to cover up, unless it's the one you fabulous one you chose, love it!

  4. Have an amazing vaca - enjoy every last drop!

  5. I just finished The Darlings! And the baby powder does help. Hope you guys have a wonderful time.

  6. I just adore j crew ...that hat and suite - swoon! Have a lovely trip
