This little look is perfect for a trip to the pool or beach during Summer. It took some time to warm up, but Summer is in full swing in California, and this Cuyana cover-up is so lightweight and breezy that it instantly had my heart. The armholes can be a little large depending on your frame, so if that’s not your style you may want to reserve it only as a swim cover (I probably will). The fabric is very lightweight and wonderful for super warm days. I also picked up the sun hat new, I think it might be time to admit I have a problem. In my defense, we do basically live at the pool and beach during Summer (and sometimes not during Summer), so I do come by the need for extra sun protection honestly.
Our big Summer trip this year is to Iceland, so I thought I’d take this Travel Light post to share my packing list. I packed everything on this list for our trip, plus a few extras like quick-dry travel towels, lightweight gloves, and snacks.
During this trip my favorites have definitely been the Ugg Cecile Waterproof Boots, and the Spiewak Aviation Eskimo Parka. The boots have been warm and kept my feet dry through all weather conditions, and the parka has been warm enough with cold and windy conditions as well as when hiking (unzipped).
I feel like no matter the season, there will always be those items that you just have to have for it. On top of my travels, I also spend a ton of time at the beach and pool with my family (hard life, right?). It’s pretty easy to do in California, so Summer wardrobe essentials are important to me. I don’t like to collect a ton of every single item (but I am a sucker for Summer clothing), but instead to choose my very favorite type of piece to wear across the seasons and years. Today I’m sharing some of my very favorites, separated by category.
I travel pretty often, and often while I travel I have work that I need to get done while I’m on the go. Nine times out of ten I will not refer to my trips as a vacation because I have work to do while on them. Our current trip to Iceland is no exception, and although it may look like fun and games I’ve been working hard behind the scenes. Today I’ve partnered with HP to share my best tips for how to work on the go.
