Determined not to be running around the house at 1am throwing on another wash even though the stuff won’t be dry before the flight and starting my week away already exhausted, I’ve got the ball rolling and a quick trip to Penneys proved to be quite fruitful. Nautical vibes are everywhere at the moment and while I don’t want t-shirts, pjs, scarves and hats plastered with ‘Ahoy Sailor’ and anchors (they’ve got all those and more), I’m a sucker for a stripe and red, white and blue absolutely fall into my neutral colour rules, plus they’re handy to have in the case of an impromptu American party. Did someone say beer pong? (More of my travel tips here).
Only slippers or swimming shoes on deck (this is where I’m going and how I’ve been preparing), check! Plus a €3 pair of white pumps I’ll most likely leave behind, like slebs who only wear their underwear once. Kinda. Swimwear that won’t expose all at the first down dog, floaty cottons for cool evenings, wide brimmed sun hat and just one teeny tiny boat themed piece – no one’s perfect. Penneys, you just made packing a hell of a lot easier, I salute you.
