I've been looking forward to this trip for what feels like forever now. It's a quick one, sadly. Two nights in Cannes, and two nights in the Antibes area. Nonetheless, I could not be more excited. I still haven't finished packing (flight is tonight), but instead took a few snaps of the general vibe of my packing (priorities, right?). It's a little tricky since I do have to bring some slightly dressier clothing for the events I'm attending, but I'm still refusing to check a bag; everything must fit in a carry-on.
Since I'm taking a red-eye, I like to be comfortable without looking like a slob. I prefer softer bralettes on these flights, like this one. I always opt for jeans (these are nice and thick with a mid-rise) and any easy top that won't wrinkle. I recently got this hand cream at a friend's recommendation and love the smell and thicker texture. Perfect for flights. This book will be my in-flight and any downtime-on-the-beach read. I was a huge fan of Emma Straub's The Vacationers, so I wanted to try one of her others. Of course, I keep my travel camera (which looks like it's gone down in price a bit), Smythson notebook, and mints with me in my personal bag as well. Still debating which shoes to actually wear on the flight, but it's between these and simple black flats.
I haven't bought a new swimsuit in years. I just don't do the beach/pool/lake whatever thing very often. I thought this was a ripe opportunity to get one that doesn't cause wardrobe malfunctions like my current one does... (learned that the hard way). I happened to find this reversible one-piece at a boutique in Soho just the other day, and found it super comfortable with nice modest coverage. I know I sound like a granny, but I'm just not into the skimpy stuff. This hat might be wishful thinking. Not sure I'll actually be able to fit it in the carry-on. And I just realized the sunscreen rolled over while I shot this; this is what happens when you're racing against sun moving behind clouds and not paying attention. Styling mistakes! I bought these sandals over a year ago and never actually have worn them (again, this goes back to my lack of beachy travels). I do like how simple they are, but wish I had gotten them in a natural/tan color instead. By the way, Matches definitely has the best pries for these, if you are in the market for a pair.
And of course, more stripes. Easy shorts (from my last post). And a worn-up pair of sandals that can handle more beating (newer version here). Though it's pictured here, when I travel I usually don't bring full-size perfume bottles. I'll try to take a tiny vial of whatever it is I want. Now, I should probably actually pack my bag!
