Packing for Florida
B and I are leaving at 0600 on Friday morning for a quick weekend getaway to see his parents, brother, sister-in-law, two nieces, and nephew. We haven't seen them since our wedding in August!! It's going to be a great weekend with incredible weather. B's parents live in Ponte Vedra (near Jacksonville) and his brother's family lives in St. Augustine. The beach club his parents belong to is fantastic- the beach just stretches on for miles and miles. I haven't seen hide nor hare of a beach since the end of August, and this girl is itching to get her body some sun!! Plus the kids are at really fun ages, and they love to swim in the ocean and the pool. I'm not as bikini body ready as I'd like to be, but I'm not letting that stop me at all!!
Here's my packing list so far. I have to pack during the day on Wed since we have dinner plans Wed. night and Thursday is a long workday for me. We'll see how much things change between now and then! I always have to try on all my outfits during the packing process to make sure I love them enough to take them on the trip and make sure I'm not missing any accessories/appropriate undergarments/etc. Do any of you do this as well or am I just weird?
Friday- 81 Degrees (day), 68 degrees (night)
Day (Plane, lunch with parents, seeing museum where his mom is docent):Aqua dress, gold flip flops, gold sand dollar pendant, white cardigan
Night (Cocktails at club, dinner at beach club): White capris, Navy and white J Crew blazer, white tee, monogrammed Bonannos, pearl earrings, gold clutch
I'm trying to decide if I'll be too warm in the blazer while we're at dinner. Everything is air conditioned to the hilt, so I feel like I'll need it. What do you all think? I don't just want to wear white pants with a white tee if I get too warm, you know?
Sat- 81 degrees (day), 68 degrees (night)
Day (beach!): Bathing suit, gold flip flops, pink tunic (worn as dress) or white long cotton dress
Night (Dinner downtown St Augustine): Jeans, white and gold j crew tee, white BR short sleeved jacket, gold heels, gold bracelets, gold clutch
Sunday- 80 degrees
Day (church and lunch)- Lilly dress, gold heels
Travel home- Jeans, white tee, yellow ruffle cardigan, gold belt, gold heels, pearls
