* Layers! Pack a lightweight jacket or sweater for cool nights and sunburn chills. That said, sunblock should be in your bag as well!

* Denim Cut-Offs. But that goes without saying.

* The Bag: A Lightweight, Heavy Duty Weekender. Choose a bag without structured sides (ie, no rollies – don’t be a trunk space hog here), so you can pack light and gather goodies along the way.

* (Not Pictured) Maxi Dress: Always great to have for day or night style.
