What a Fashion Editor Packs for a Beach Vacation

Next week, I’m saying sayonara to my computer and headed to sunny Spain for a week-long beach vacation. Throughout my many years traveling for work and pleasure, I've learned how to pack efficiently and skillfully, i.e., streamline my suitcase to only the most versatile essentials. I’m not going to lie, though. It’s taken me a long time to become a minimalist packer, but now I get a thrill out of it because (said like a true fashion editor) I get the chance to buy more when I’m there.

Beach vacations tend to be the easiest type of holidays to pack for. The warm weather calls for lighter pieces that err on the side of casual. Clothes, shoes, and accessories that are adaptable from day to night are the name of the game. Scroll below to see my favorite pieces this season has to offer and exactly what I’m packing for my upcoming week of sun, sea, and sand.
