It’s a Very… Weird… Beach House…
(based on a real beach house I’ve seen…)
It has a dead-end hallway, with a big window… All of the 10, 11 and 12 year old’s sleep there, in their sleeping bags. Well, “sleep…”
She packs with an almost military precision:
Maybe a few extra pieces of jewelry. And yes, maybe the scarf spends more time draped on the rocking chair than it spends around her neck…
She’s with family (and many of their friends!) so she doesn’t have to look like a fashion model. But she’s happier knowing that she’s got what she needs, and that she always looks good!
Some relatives are concerned that she is cheated because she pays an equal “adult” share of the costs of the house, but she just gets the tiny room.
She’s always hushed such concerns quickly, and assured all involved that she’s just fine, thank you!

That turquoise dress rocks. Casual yet dramatic.
The pansy scarf is so perfect for this capsule!!
I would love to see this series done with denim and olive for the neutrals!
Oh, yes, denim and olive as neutrals, please! Love this series, so fun to see how different basics can look!
" She packs with an almost military precision " is really resonating with me ! I think it has been my subconscious not-so-hidden agenda all along ! My downfall has been thinking through the variety of outfits I can make with the limited pieces. The three colored items and accessories make all the difference here ! I am also seeing how the two dresses provide both a top and a bottom in your template —-hmmm — food for packing thought ! If I were to substitute a skirt for the dress, and add a matching top with sleeves, separating the two with a belt , would it be passable as a dress ? I could then use the skirt with other tops for additional outfits, if the trip was longer. I am just mulling this over and thinking " out loud " !

Ah yes, this is so perfect. I want that room!!! And, the bathing suit top can be worn with the shorts and the pants, love the turquoise dress. The link didn't take me directly to the dress but I am guessing it is a cotton or rayon knit which makes it casually elegant. Well done as always.
I'm packing for 8 weeks in Cape Cod today, and had to say thank you. This was perfect timing and a fantastic template for me to fill in with the clothing I have. Thank you!

I love *everything* you do but this one especially! It has a casual, chic, laid-back feel while looking all pulled together, casual but not sloppy, just the way I want to go to the beach :-)
I like the planning for different weather and temperatures. I am inclined to under pack unless I add planned outfits for this.
