You'll have to follow my Instagram to keep up with my adventures, but tomorrow I'll be en route to spend a long weekend in the Bahamas with my cousin. I can't wait to escape the dreary February vibes in New York and spend a few sun-soaked days with my toes in the sand and a straw hat on my head.

Since the trip is so short I'm not packing much—just a few swimsuits, sandals, an outfit for a golf lesson (I know), and a handful of breezy dresses for day and night. Blame it on the absolute takeover of "millennial pink," but I'm channeling a mostly white wardrobe with splashes of pastels and blush tones—a far cry from my usual all-black-and-navy routine.

I've had my eye on these festive Baublebar drop earrings for a while, and this little getaway was the push I needed to #addtocart. I'm also not particularly fond of white sunglasses in an everyday setting, but happen to think these Quay shades will work perfectly for the beach (and look amazing in selfies, natch). I've also had a revived interest in my girl Marie Antoinette lately, so I'm going to pick up this 2002 biography that was the basis for Sofia Coppola's movie (that I love with a passion).

Now the thing is—my dreams of this serene pastel vacation palette hinge entirely both on my ability to shop for a few things prior to my trip (easy enough) as well as being able to find where I've hidden all my summer clothes in the depths of my under-bed and over-closet storage. Stay tuned on that front, but meanwhile, shop a few of my packing essentials for yourself!
