In a couple days, Andy and I are meeting his parents in Florida for the long weekend. His plan is to golf as much as possible; my plan is to soak up as much sun as possible (golf and I do not mix). Though the forecast right now is looking grim (highs in the 60s, what?), I’m holding out hope that this week’s 75-degree weather will ultimately extend into the weekend. And my packing list reflects my denial. The trip is going to be a laid-back, casual one, which makes the packing pretty easy: No need for excessive jewelry, any form of heels, or dressy clothes. If the weather holds up, my uniform will be a bathing suit (I have this one from Victoria’s Secret in two different prints; it’s the most flattering bikini I’ve ever owned–both top and bottom), shorts and a loose-fitting crop top. For cool nights (or days??) I’m packing my favorite, light-weight versatile scarf, a pair of trusty Keds, and a jean jacket. My beach bag is actually a kitschy bag I bought at Harrods in London many, many years ago. It folds down completely flat in my suitcase, holds all the necessities (with a zipper top), and its waxy finish keeps it waterproof. And I cannot go anywhere without my Kindle (currently reading: Eightysixed by Chicagoan Emily Belden); with this waterproof case, it’s completely beach-friendly.
