Packing for a Sunny Holiday

There are two types of people during the holiday season. Those who prefer sand, and those who prefer snow. If you’re anything like me, sand is the only way to go. Shopping for spring and summer clothes in the winter may seem impossible, but we’ve got you covered. From day to day basics to beautiful pieces for a special celebration, let us dress you this holiday season. Stop by Lawrence Covell before you zip up that suitcase.   


It’s going to be warm. You’ll need a classic pair of denim shorts. The Pollock Short from Merlette is our pick. With an elastic waist, deep pockets, white topstitching, and an adorable embroidered “M” on the hip, these shorts are a no-brainer. Style with a t-shirt for a walk on the boardwalk or beach and take it into the evening with a the Abbot Top from Merlette in black or blue. 


Don’t have time to change between lunch and dinner? The Stijl Dress from Merlette is the perfect day to night dress. Made of 100% cotton, this top seller is easy to care for and will make packing a breeze. Featuring a bright hand painted floral print, smocked body, gathered skirt, and capped sleeves. Style with a sandal or leather sneaker depending on your mood and layer with a cardigan if it gets breezy. This lightweight and comfortable dress will be the first thing you pack. 


Personally, I think that adding a pop of color on a sunny vacation is the cherry on top. The Contrast Floral Dress from 6397 is perfectly simple and bold all at once. Adjustable straps create a fit that lightly skims the body, draping beautifully everywhere it matters. Falling at mid-calf, this silk slip is ready to throw on for dinner and out dancing afterwards. Layer with a white t-shirt underneath or the Mesh Sweater on top when you’re feeling chilly. 


Don’t want to worry about layers? We give you the Anais Dress from Ulla Johnson. This cotton blend is decorated with vintage florals inspired by Batik, an Indonesian dyeing technique. Featuring long sleeves, a belt, pockets, and a subtle ruffle trim, the Anais has its own personality. It falls just above the knee, so your legs can get in on that sun too! While the rich green color takes you to a place with hot cocoa and mistletoe while the florals transport you back to the sun and sand. Style with a boot, sneaker or sandal for any occasion.
