Let’s take a quick break from sparkly holiday must-haves (I’m talking about these) and gift guides, shall we? Now that I’ve wrapped up (literally) all of my holiday shopping, my mind is starting to focus on what comes after December 25th: the beach. My family and I are heading to Harbour Island for our annual vacay. (Take a peek at last year’s trip here and here.) To say that I’m eager to get there would be an understatement. I’m practically counting the hours. And since it’s only a little over two weeks away (!), I’m starting to think about what belongs in my suitcase. First up: lots and lots of Lemlem. I can’t think of anything more beach appropriate than the brand’s bright, gauzy pieces. (Good timing, too. Net-a-Porter has a bunch on SALE.) This double-striped dress is my favorite. I’ll wear it as a coverup day-in and day-out. I’m also loving this playsuit (romper?). The pink-ish pieces – like this hoodie – are obviously my favorite, but I love the greens and blues, too. And somehow wearing two of the striped pieces together actually looks kind of perfect – effortless, really. Leave is Lemlem to prove that one can never have too many stripes. Amen to that.
