PS Lilly Pulitzer’s “After Party” sale starts tomorrow morning at 8am. As with all Lilly sales, things can get crazy. My biggest piece of advice is to create an account today. Update your payment, billing, and shipping so you can shop and buy fast. The good stuff sells out within minutes…
I’m heading to Caneel Bay next week! I can’t wait to relax and explore and did I mention relax?! The funny thing is that before I moved to DC, I hated the beach. We always went to the beach for vacations growing up. But living in Florida, it basically felt like we drove a few hours for more of the same. We’d drive to the Panhandle to go to Seaside or drive south to go to the Keys or hop across the bridge for Sarasota. Always the beach. And then I moved to DC for school and even though I spent hours every day on the river, I MISSED THE BEACH. It actually felt like a craving. I would bundle up in the morning, close my eyes, and just wish I would magically be transported to a warm tropical island. Toes in the sand, sun on my shoulders.
Living in New York makes that craving 300x worse, especially in January. (Remember last year with those polar vortexes?! All I wanted was the beach!) All of this is to say… I can’t wait.
While in Florida, I planned on visiting the Lilly Pulitzer store to pick up a few things… Lilly Pulitzer resort is my idea of #neverendingsummer
I’m trying to keep things super simple, basically bathing suits and coverups. And dresses that are easy to throw on when I’m not at the beach. (Oh, and definitely bringing running shorts, sneaks and casual t-shirts for exploring!) The above picture are things that are 100% on my list and I have a couple of additions that I know I’ll end up throwing in… I am a chronic over-packer after all.
I went to the book store and picked up The Silkworm (almost done with The Cookoo’s Calling!), but I want to bring one or two more books that feel more like “beach reads”… any recommendations?! I’m all ears.
