it’s that time of year when the northern wind howls and the snow begin to swirl. that’s when the snowbirds decide to pack a suitcase and head south to warmer climates and soft breezes. better yet, a cruise is on the agenda, and you’re ready to set sail. but what to wear? what to pack? if you find yourself in this dilemma, then this post is for you.
today, i’m pleased to partner with Halsbrook once again. a unique online shopping destination chock full of timeless classics. and guess what? Halsbrook is turning five. to celebrate their birthday they’re offering 15% off all full price items with code celebrate15 starting today, January 4th thru Saturday, January 6th.
even though i’m a separates girl through-and-through dresses are a must when it comes to a vacation. they’re an easy, breezy one and done look that’s perfect for warmer weather. just add an accessory or two a pair of sandals, and you’re ready to start your day. this lightweight linen dress from Sail to Sable can easily transition from day to evening. this is a timeless style that’s perfect for resort season and a hot summer day.
it’s always a good idea to pack a lightweight sweater. restaurant temps can be downright chilly. and mother nature is known for changing her mind. better to be safe than sorry. this white cotton rib pullover from Kinross has a relaxed silhouette that looks great with this navy, and white striped Elliott and Lauren pants nicknamed the ‘miracle pant’ thanks to its stretch composition. what a dream to wear! and so lightweight. add a horn pendant necklace from Moo Moo, and i’m ready for a day of sightseeing.
a shirtdress is always a welcome addition to my closet. they can fly solo or pop it over a pair of pants. either way looks fabulous. this black henley dress from Southcott is constructed from a bamboo-cotton blend which feels soft but has some stretch to it. style it with sandals and a woven tote for a casual chic look. love this bucket bag from Kayu that secures with a drawstring.
are your creative juices flowing yet for that warm weather vacay? suddenly, i want to pencil in a trip to cabo instead of san francisco. but here’s my packing list fo a resort/cruise vacation:
2 or 3 swimsuits
sandals or flip-flops
1 pair of nice shoes or sandals
2 dresses, 1 maxi dress
2 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of pants
3 lightweight shirts
1 lightweight sweater

Loving this crisp dress so much. Heading off on a cruise soon and this dress has given me some inspiration with my own set of stripes! Happy New Year Beth
Adore that first dress and the fresh mint color! This brand is new to me so I look forward to exploring it and some of the others you introduced me to today. Love the black dress and handbag as well! And yes it makes me want to plan a trip as well!
Oh my, I love both dresses! The first one is so fresh looking, just perfect!
Thank you, Beth????
