It’s about that time! We arrived on Harbour Island yesterday for our annual family vacation. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile then you know that Harbour Island is my happy place. I look forward to this trip all year long and couldn’t be more excited to finally be here. While packing is normally one of my least favorite things in life (“packing anxiety” is a thing), the task is relatively simple for this vacation. Harbour Island isn’t a super fancy place (I never even pack a pair of heels!) so I can really pare it down to just the essentials. For daytime, I packed a cute Lemlem coverup along with a couple of Marysia one-pieces (this one and this one) and this new bikini. (I also made sure to grab my sunhat. This hat is the best investment ever. The squishy material makes it totally packable. I pull it out of my bag and pops right back into shape.) The nights are all about easy-breezy looks which means lots of tunics and white jeans and several beachy dresses like this off-the-shoulder number that I’ll top off with a pair of these earrings.  As I mentioned, you won’t find any heels in my suitcase but you will find several pairs of Ancient Greek sandals and this pair of espadrilles. One last thing: sunscreen. Lots of it.

I’m signing off for the next couple of days. I’ll be back with new posts on the blog next week. Until then, you can check out my IG to follow along with me on Harbour Island. See you in 2017!
