What to Pack: Weekend in Charleston

I haven’t been back to the East Coast since we moved west in December, so I’m happy to say that I’ll be heading to Charleston, S.C., this weekend to celebrate the impending wedding of one of my nearest and dearest. The wedding isn’t til May, but a pre-nuptial ladies’ weekend is in order and I’m pumped for some beach time, Chucktown bar-hopping and QT with the bride-to-be. There’s little I love more (or know better) than the Carolina shore in April, so packing for this trip will be a breeze. Going in my bag: several shades of blue, loose knits, summerweight scarves and crisp whites.

Vacation Longing

Palm Trees in Rincon Puerto Rico

Like clockwork, I start seriously craving travels to tropical locales about this time every year. In recent years I’ve been able to satiate that desire (as I’ll sacrifice just about anything for a trip to a faraway warm land), but this year our cross-country move prevented any such travels. And given that earlier this week temps on the West Coast got pretty frosty – yes, there was actually some frost in SF – I’ve got the travel bug now more than ever.

I’ll have to settle for a little roof-lounging in mid-60s sunshine over the weekend, but to those of you who are lucky enough to be heading off somewhere sultry, bon voyage!
