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.
A denim skirt is also absolutely coming along for the ride.
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.
I just rush-ordered this top from The Great’s new spring line to bring with me, because it is the cutest.
Since it cools off in the evenings, I think a nice cotton cardigan is probably called for.
I’ll wear my grey R13 boy skinny jeans on the plane, then have them to wear in the evenings.
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.
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.
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.
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.
