What to Wear: Vacation!

What to Wear: Vacation!

Woo hoo! I’m going on vacation in…approximately six weeks? Okay, I may be jumping the gun on this one. I just don’t have anything that is appropriate for North Carolina and need to do a lot of shopping:

Bikini – Delias has some really cute patterns in my favorite halter-and-shorty combination.
Shirt – My parents use these oxford shirts from Land’s End as an unofficial uniform. I may have to buy one of my own.
Shorts – I can hear Jean laughing now. I don’t wear shorts. But they are growing on me after months of wearing these in hot pink to therapy.
Sweater – It is going to be March after all.
Flip flops – Cute with red accents and a gold ring.
Earrings – At $7, these beaded hoops can be exposed to sand and water.
Rope bracelet – Because this is what everyone wears on the east coast, right! I obviously researched by watching Dawson’s Creek.
Lotions – Those sizes are accurate. I need a solid 20 ounces of SPF 50 sunblock and another 20 ounces of Build-a-Tan in order to leave the house in anything less than a turtleneck and pants these days.
Supplies – A perfect beach bag filled with a book I saw someone else reading on the bus, sunglasses and a vintage scarf.

What do you think Jean? Will I fit in with the Carolinians?

    I think I better read that book. It has a lovely title and I adore slow moving character driven, inside your head kind of books. But I loved this review from your link to Amazon.

    This book should cost a thousand dollars, July 7, 2005
    Reviewer: C. S. Overfield (Santa Monica) – See all my reviews

    Wow. I am frightened that I could’ve died without having read this book.

    I think that is cute and funny. Have you ever read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson? Or Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner? Those are my two favorite novels, just beautiful!!!

    I could only find a picture of that bag online. But American Eagle has one that is pretty similar for sale.
