The-Must-Pack-Summer-Essentials-ListA bikini that stays on your bod in rough surf, for a beach jog, or when chasing your little cousins around. I personally love Patagonia's bikinis. Everything you would want in a sporty, yet sexy two-piece is pictured here:
A stack of fashion mags to peruse on the plane. This is to make up for the time that was spent in front of a MacBook in climate-controlled office air, reading great works of academia, council files, and census spreadsheets.
Summer is the time for my Raybans and my rainbows. Pack 'em!
I will be on vacation so I will not be tending to the tresses like I do when I am keeping up appearances in a place where people know me. Going off the grid for a week+ means I can wear a cap whenever a good hairbrushing is far too domestic.
A beach throw makes the essentials list since it is so versatile. Perfect to bask on when the rays burn brightly. It can couple as a blankie when the sun goes down at night. I am making sure mine is big enough for some fellow family members to lay on when the 4th of July fireworks light up the sky.
Oh sweet summer.
