Hi everybody! Happy Monday! This weekend was hot hot hot here in Boston, and it had me wishing myself back to the mini vacation I took for 4th of July weekend! I was visiting family in Vermont (at my favorite place in the world *contented sigh*) and enjoyed the sunshine and cool, refreshing water!
Not only was my vacation idyllic for the company and the scenery, but I was also so lucky to have the Newport Maxi from VacayStyle along for the ride. I wanted an outfit that would be comfy on the car ride, appropriate to wear in public in case we stopped for a meal on the way, and that would transition seamlessly from there to the dock without weighing down my luggage. The soft cotton maxi comes with a completely detachable white slip, which makes it the perfect combo for wearing both as a dress (with complete coverage) and as a beachy/lakeside cover up. It is so soft on the skin and has just a little bit of stretch to it – we’re talking seriously comfortable here. I’m wearing the dress with the slip in these photos, and you can see where it ends around mid-thigh. It checks all my boxes, and I have to say, I love this piece!
I feel so lucky to have the chance to introduce you all to VacayStyle because I really believe in their clothing. The pieces are all beautifully designed, and the clothing travels really well. Which are seriously the two things that vacation-ready clothing needs to accomplish. Who wants to lug around a heavy suitcase and then gasp – iron things when you arrive. Not I. Not I. I also love the versatility of of these pieces. VacayStyle sells individual pieces, from gorgeous jumpsuits to caftans, but what really makes them unique are their collections. They offers a number of 5 piece collections (at a discount from buying the individual pieces) that can help you create up to 14 outfits! Talk about packing smart. I love this little video of theirs demonstrating the looks from their Cabo collection, and how easy it is on the suitcase! :)
My dress is from the Newport collection, pictured below.
What are your go-tos when packing for a vacation? Do you ever struggle with packing light but covering all the scenarios? I really do. I’m a bad packer, and I know it, but thankfully this maxi will make my beach packing a little smoother going forward, since it’ll be coming with me every time. Phew!
