Packing Strategies

Dustskulker and Sealface, 2012

I am packing verrrry lightly for this trip (not quite this lightly, but nearly.)

The essentials: organic sunscreen, sundresses, swimsuit, camera, Kindle, prenatal vitamins, my favorite Hanro nightie and Deet-free bug spray.

I also picked up some summer basics at Destination Maternity, figuring that my poor old leggings will not last me through the summer or serve me all that well on this trip, in 80-plus degree weather. I found a very cute short denim skirt, shorts, and some simple tank tops when I visited their store in midtown.

When I was interviewing Rosie Pope at her boutique, I also picked up some of these tie-dyed tees, which have been making appearances in my weekly bump photos.

Since we'll be on a sailboat for 5 nights of our trip, we're only taking a canvas boat bag and a small carry on...kind of nice to be so unencumbered.

On my reading list: Operating Instructions, by Anne Lamott (which already has me weeping uncontrollably.) And for some levity, Tina Fey's Bossypants and Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
