for those of you following me on Instagram or Facebook Stories, you know that i am spending the week on Tybee Island off the coast of Georgia. and let me tell you, there is something magical about the beach. the moment my toes hit the sand, all the cares of the world simply disappear. there are only blue skies, sunshine, and the sound of the waves gently rolling onto the shore. is there anything more peaceful? years and years ago, my family lived on an island for close to five years. and two of my favorite things will always be watching the sun dip into the ocean at sunset and walking along the shore with miles and miles of sand stretching out before me. so this week, we’re talking what to wear on a beach vacation with an excursion or two to Savannah thrown in for good measure. yep, i’m vacay, and i’m feeling good.
what to wear on a beach vacation
first up is an ootd (outfit of the day) that’s as comfy as it is chic. and what’s better than a drawstring waist? especially when you’re on vacation. and y’all know i love a bold patterned pant. this pair is from J.Crew who always delivers one or two silk pants each season. since this pant has a multitude of colors splashed across it pick a color any color to add to the mix. but if you want to play it safe a white tee is the way to go.
of course, i love a vacation in Paris walking the streets of St. Germaine and sipping wine at local cafe’s (not sure when that’s happening again), or visiting the ruins of Angor Wat, but when it’s time to unwind and chill i head to the beach. it’s a place where i can catch my breath, regroup, and charge my battery. and i don’t know about you, but i desperately needed to slow my pace and unhook from the world. if only for a week… 2020 has certainly dished out its fair share of stress.
enjoying time off
a beach vacay is one vacation where you are allowed to be lazy. there are no wake-up calls, no tours to catch, and make-up is not required. you can pack a big suitcase or throw everything into an overnight bag. just don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen. swimsuits and flip-flops are the name of the game, and cut-off shorts and tees are not frowned upon. and you only have to brush your teeth and wash your face before you head out the door in the morning. did i mention i love beach vacations?!
the thrall of it all
don’t worry, ladies, there will be a full recap of beach week plus my packing list coming to the blog. so stay tuned!
