Tropical Getaway | What I Packed

Happy Monday, friends, and welcome back to a new week! I hope your weekend was all kinds of summer-fun! We celebrated my sister’s wedding, and it was a non-stop lovefest! She looked absolutely stunning, and so happy… don’t you just love weddings?!

It felt extra special since Mr. SP and I celebrate 25 years of marriage this week! In fact, right about now we’re somewhere over the Pacific Ocean headed on our anniversary trip! We’re going west…. way, way west. And knowing me, you can probably guess it’s tropical! Any guesses?

I’ll be sharing peeks of our trip and experiences over on my Instagram Story, so you can follow the fun HERE.

We’ll be gone 11 days (including the travel days and time changes), so keeping my packing to a carry-on was a little tricky. In the end, I opted for lightweight styles that packed compactly and gave me multiple styling options. I usually snap pics of possible combos as part of my packing process, and thought you might want to see some of what came with me!

    My guess is somewhere in Tahiti, maybe Bora Bora or Morea? Both are beautiful. What surprised me? Tubes (like newspaper delivery tubes) except for your daily baguette!
