I’m in Miami b****!! For those of you who don’t know, I’m actually from South Florida, which is hard to imagine for some considering my lack of interest in all things tropical. Despite this, once I moved up north I realized how much I enjoy and miss lazying around in the shade by the pool, able to take a quick dip whenever I felt the urge.
So whenever I go home, I take full advantage of the central air, driving to Target and being able to throw something in the trunk of the car, walking through grocery store aisles as wide as my studio apartment, and swimming! Before I get here, though, the tough part is always…what to pack.

I am definitely the girl that wants to have options, including at least five pairs of shoes for a four day stay. Oh, and I neeever think about being able to combine pieces to create outfits. I just grab my brightest, most fun in the sun pieces, throw them in the bag, and hope for the best. This time, I thought, ‘Ok, Annick, let’s get real here. Am I really going to wear a long sleeved silk blouse in Miami …. in the summer?!” No. So, I thought it’d be fun to put together some snaps of what’s in my carry-on.

I’m not usually one to wear color or pattern, I usually go for solids and neutrals, but hey, when in Rome… ok, now it’s off to the pool!
