We're not going to lie, we're more than a little envious of those lucky ones heading on a warm-weather vacation during the holidays. The beauty of heading to a warmer climate is that you really don't need to pack that much, just some key essentials to get you from the hotel to the beach to dinner and around town. We would love to get a break from the chilly weather, and we may or may not already have in mind what we'd take along with us.
Thanks to this minimal yet chic inspiration from Sara Donaldson of the blog Harper & Harley, we know exactly what we'd lounge in at the beach if given the chance: a neutral hat to block out harmful sun rays, a stylish black bikini, and a gauzy cover-up to complete the look.
