By the time you read this I will hopefully either be on a road trip to Jacksonville, FL or I will actually be in Jacksonville, FL. It is my birthday week (March 13) so I knew I wanted to do something fun and since the husband’s family live in Jacksonville, I thought why not make a trip to a sunny beach town for my birthday?
I have some things planned as to what I want to do, see and eat and so I picked an outfit for each day of the trip. We will be in Jacksonville for four days and I wanted to make sure I had enough cute spring/summer outfits to get me through without overpacking!
The temperatures will luckily be sunny and in the mid 80’s while we are in Jacksonville, so I made sure to pack some floral tops, shorts as well as a few neutral pieces to mix and match. We will also be going out on Friday for a birthday dinner at River and Post, so I packed a nice dress and heels for that. Although I have matched up the pieces for photos, the beauty of them is that I can really just match them up any way I like since they all work together.
What’s an outfit without great shoes? Although packing shoes is not the easiest thing as they take up so much space and can be heavy and bulky. I packed two pairs of neutral sandals, a pair of red sandals for color and a pair of heels. These should be more than enough to match with the outfits that I have.
An outfit is always more polished with great accessories. This is an area where I also try not to overpack, so I try to be very intentional about what I want to wear. I packed a statement necklace, a large bangle, cocktail ring, drop earrings, a long minimal necklace and diamond studs. This should cover me for casual outings as well as nicer ones.
And of course I need a few beauty items for the trip! I try to keep it simple and pack the minimum so I bring along the basics such as foundation, mascara, blush, etc. With one good eyeshadow palette and basic face beauty items I am all set for many different looks for day or night.
I hope you enjoyed getting a little sneak peek into what I will be packing for Jacksonville and check back soon so you can see some of the beautiful places that we visit and the adventures that we get into!
