I got my nails and toes all vacation ready and went to packing!
I usually start by going through my clothes and making piles of what I think I want to bring, then see if I can make it into an outfit. Our room becomes mayhem and I lock Nate out.
Sprinkles usually likes laying in the middle of it all.
First, I started off with my new favorite item, my kimono! This was my one vacation "splurge" that I purchased for the trip, and it was worth every penny! I'm guessing you saw all my Instagram posts with my beloved kimono! I knew I wanted to wear it as a swimsuit cover up, have a shorts option, and long jeans option. Here were the plans:
I didn't end up wearing either like this, but I did end up wearing the kimono out to dinner one night, and as a swim cover-up everyday. I am excited for the weather to get warmer here to rock my kimono!
I also picked up a few vacation essentials at Target. Not splurges but necessities!
Chimi thought so, too.
From here on, it was outfit planning with already owned items. I tried to come up with lots of shorts outfits. Usually Key West can have a slight cool breeze in the evening, so longer sleeves and shorts work well. And per usual, almost all of my outfits were created using inspiration pics! A couple of my plans:
Then of course had to pack the super casuals...
...a few skirts...
|(I wait to iron items until we arrive, obviously).|
...and a couple dresses.
I had quite a few others that I snapped pics of but didn't make the cut. This is why I like putting clothes on first. You never know what the full outfit will look like until you put it on!
Lastly, I grab random comfy tanks, tshirts, shorts, and comfies that don't have set outfits. I usually end up wearing those more than my planned outfits anyway!
The girls always get extra snuggly as I am packing up my suitcase. They just know we are leaving!
I will post some vaycay pics soon with what made the cut in the Keys! I did post quite a few to Instagram already while I was down there. More to come!
PS - I did not include outfit details since most are old, but let me know if you are curious about anything!
