So, for Thanksgiving this year, Joe and I are driving to Florida to spend the week with his family. We all pitch in and rent a big house on the beach for the week. This year we’ll be in Port Saint Joe. I’ve never been, but I remember reading an article about the town in Travel magazine. It’s apparently one of the top happiest beach towns to live. So, I’m excited to experience this little town. According to the map, there isn’t much around.

The week includes relaxing, chatting, laughing, drinking lots of wine, cooking and eating lots of food, playing games, solving a puzzle and enjoying the beach. At some point, we get stir crazy and go find a shopping area or a restaurant.

Anyway… I’ll be on the gulf coast for a week where the weather seems to be all over the place. 40’s and 50’s at night and 70’s to 80 in the day time. So, I need to pack outfits that include layers. I thought I’d share with you what I’m packing along with the outfits the items will make.

Here’s what I’m packing…

Here are some of the outfits you can make with these items…

I aimed for relaxing and comfy for most days. I anticipate walking on the beach so I included my distressed boyfriend jeans and flip-flops. It might be cold on the beach, so I’m packing a knit hat just in case… along with a cozy poncho. I wanted one outfit that I could dress up in case we went out shopping… or if I want to look a little nicer for Thanksgiving dinner… so I’m packing a simple, easy striped dress.

It’s easy to see that there a few more outfits you can create with these items. I’m only there a week… and I love options… so I just shared 10 combos… but you can get creative and make more.

Here’s all the items to shop…

Enjoy!
