Packing for Points South

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 7.35.19 AMThis week, I am answering my own fashion question – spending Spring Break and beyond in Florida with my daughter.  It takes us from the hip pool scene in Miami for her birthday, to the exciting equestrian village of Wellington, to the clubby atmosphere of Palm Beach and Vero Beach.   What to pack? Luckily I have recently honed my skills writing a book, What2WearWhere’s Packing for Travel, which will be available shortly.  So I chose the ever fresh looking color scheme of black, white, and tan and combined them in several different ways to achieve chic and stylish looks for each and every destination.    We have included 10 of our absolute  must-haves for warm weather traveling: 1.  great pair of white jeans,  2. packable hat,  3.  good looking tote,  4. wedge sandals,  5. cocktail dress,  6. strappy sandals.  7.  stylish sunglasses,  8.  comfortable flats,  9.  tan- worthy bathing suit,  10.   fabulous cover-up.
