A once hated task, I now quite enjoy packing.  I'm sure much of that is thanks to blogging, as chronicling looks can really only improve one's ability to outfit plan in a pinch.  It's especially exciting to pack a bag in freezing temperatures when you're headed to sun and sand.  Sigh, I already forget what it's like to step outside and be hit with a suffocating blanket of heat and tropical breeze.  The only thing that greets me when I open the front door these days is the freaky neighbourhood cat (who was for some reason, shaved completely except for its head and paws) and a feeling that can only be compared to venturing inside of a freezer.  I would know what that's like because you better believe I worked at McDonald's back in the day!  Where was I?  Right, the outfits.  On a vacation, I'm all about taking the minimum and being able to remix.  Staples, such as these neutral flat sandals and Michael Kors tote bag are a must bring!  It's so fun to get dressed up every evening at the resort.  Very Downton Abbey-style costume changes and I dig it.

  11. Very cute red shorts, especially with that top and yellow bag. Usually I don't like yellow and red combos, but it works here
