For Labor Day Weekend 2017, LB planned a trip to Daytona Beach. I was supposed to have Friday, September 1st off, but alas, I have NO seniority, and had to report to work that day. I would have to run home and pack quickly to leave for Daytona on Friday evening.
The great thing about packing for a weekend retreat is that you don’t have to pack too much. HOWEVER, if you’re like me, you want to make sure you pack enough to see you through any scenario that may arise. The way to effectively compromise is by implementing Strategery… (love George W. Bush)
When LB and I head to our favorite hotel in Daytona, there are a few activities that I keep in mind when pulling together my weekend outfits. They are:
· Friday night out to dinner· Saturday at the pool party (or basking on the beach if the pool-side karaoke becomes bothersome)
That’s My LB
· Saturday night activity (typically a concert at the Daytona Boardwalk-Bandshell) on this particular trip it was raining on Saturday night so LB took me to
for dinner, instead of to the Bandshell concert.
With all that in mind, I like to try to coordinate clothing that is equally fun and practical. I managed to get it together quickly.
Here is my list
· Swim Suit
· Sun Hat (Hello Sunshine)
· cover-up (YES, I do have one)
· Denim or White Shorts
· White Jeans
· Two or three shirts (similar color palette)
· Cross-body Bag
· Beach Tote
· Personal Items
Whether you use my list to pack for a vacation or grab the unfolded laundry and throw it in a suitcase, heed the words of this prudent sage…
