Pack Rat

I am packing for a much-needed week away at the beach in South Carolina. It will be a very casual family holiday, and the house we are staying at has a washer/dryer.

No one will see us walking around a fancy resort hotel, and we will be frequenting different restaurants each night, so nobody will know if I repeat an outfit. Most of the places we will go are pretty casual (think beachside fish shacks and resort town haunts) so easy clothes are key. No offense to the locals, but Hilton Head, South Carolina isn’t exactly the fashion capitol of the United States.

So why do I have so much stuff? Five pairs of shoes? A huge bag of clothes?  I haven’t even gotten to the cosmetics yet.

I am an editor for God’s sake, why can’t I seem to edit myself?

I am currently re-packing, trying to weed out what I really need, and what could stay home un-missed. I am sure that I still have too much, yet will certainly discover some basic necessity ended up on the cutting room/bedroom floor. And somehow, I will do without it.

I need to remember, it’s all about relaxing, experiencing a different lifestyle and enjoying my family. But if I can look cute doing that, why not go for it?!

I will post from my trip, and  will continue to bring you great articles on food, fitness, fashion and family.
