Packing list: Miami

Zero maria cornejo dress—packing list: Miami

I’m taking a very quick little jaunt to Miami next week, and because I know you guys love a packing post—and because I’m still in the middle of sorting out what to bring with me—I thought I’d lay it all out here. As it is such a short trip, I’m not doing my usual sticking-to-one-color-palette trick, but instead, throwing a little bit of everything in there. But of course a healthy amount of black will be represented, in the form of a couple of my favorite Maria Cornejo silk jersey dresses (which helpfully pack down to nothing); I have a longer version of this that will definitely be going in the suitcase.

I just saw this on Shopbop this morning and am seriously considering purchasing it for the trip as well. So easy and just a little sexy.

J. Crew denim skirt—Packing list: Miami

A denim skirt is also absolutely coming along for the ride.

Other Stories button-down—packing list: Miami

Even though it’s not the most practical for travel, I must have a crisp, slightly oversized white button-down.

And I never regret packing a simple white tee.

The Great blouse—Packing list: Miami

I just rush-ordered this top from The Great’s new spring line to bring with me, because it is the cutest.

Everlane Cardigan—pavking list: Miami

Since it cools off in the evenings, I think a nice cotton cardigan is probably called for.

R13 boy skinny jeans—packing list:Miami

I’ll wear my grey R13 boy skinny jeans on the plane, then have them to wear in the evenings.

The Upside shorts—packing list: Miami

And I’ve become such a little yoga freak lately that I’m going to try and take some classes while I’m there. I’ll wear these shorts and a ratty old tee.

Chan Luu sczarf—packing list:Miami

As most of you know, I always travel with a Chan Luu silk-and-cashmere scarf, and I’m tempted to go for this pretty pale pink one, which feels very Miami.

No 6 Huarache clogs—packing list: Miami

I’ll bring some manner of No. 6 clog sandal, probably a pair I already own, although I’m mighty tempted by their Huarache clog.

Stan Smith sneakers—packing list: Miami

I must have some sneakers along too.

I’m very excited to use my poppy new travel blowdryer, because I always find hotel blowdryers wanting.

And because almost everything I’m packing is capable of wrinkling, I’ll probably bring along my trusty travel steamer, which is so, so tiny and and amazingly good.

    Yay! Yes, we do love a packing list!

    The news is so awfully grim…nice to think of you somewhere near the ocean!

    (Please don’t venture near the king’s compound up the road…very bad energy.)

    I love that blouse from The Great. It looks very orange in the photo, but claims to be pink in the description. Humm…

    The Everlane cardigan is being ordered in bone!

    Have fun and safe travels!

    P.S. The Cornejo dress link goes to an Everland v-neck sweater (also a good travel option).

  5. i have that blow dryer and love it (and i’ve never said that about a blow dryer before). also, if you have time in miami, have lunch or dinner at the mandolin — such delicious food, and the garden makes feels like you’re in greece. xoxo

    Very nice warm-weather choices. Winter seems eternal this year.

    Now I want to know what kind of luggage you use, as I’m in need of a new, wheeled suitcase.
