I would so love to go somewhere and sit in the sun, but several factors are making that unlikely. There’s Covid, of course, which makes plane travel feel fraught. And then there’s the fact that I keep watching TV shows and movies with terrifying and highly realistic-seeming depictions of plane crashes, and they’ve made me reluctant to fly anywhere, ever again. So this is a post for a pretend trip, and as such, I have made a tight color palette of impractical white, with touches of khaki and blue thrown in (you know I believe in always packing a tight color palette, so everything goes with everything). For starters, I’d go for these white army pants, cause they look so cute and easy.
And of course I’d love to have a pair of Nili Lotan’s Paris pants in this soft white.
And speaking of Nili Lotan, here’s a pretty perfect khaki shirt that’s currently marked down.
This striped tee has a French vibe that I dig, and it’d lend crispness to just about any casual outfit.
Have I shown you this excellent poplin dress from Cos? I feel the answer is yes, but how perfect would it be for vacation now, and summer later?
Even though it necessitates traveling with a steamer, I pretty much always travel to warm places with a white button down, cause it just looks so fresh.
And here’s a cute caftan, for beaching and lounging.
My bum knee has decided for me that I’m done with clog sandals; instead I’d reach for these Birkenstock Arizonas, which are a pretty good (and versatile) blue.
I always travel with a silk and cashmere Chan Luu scarf—they are so light, but warm when you need them to be, and this, too, is a nice blue.
And finally, I’d bring along this L.L. Bean tote (I like the zipper-topped ones)—it could be a carry-on for the plane and then a beach bag once you get there.
