Packing List: Cape Cod.

Cape Cod Packing List - The Stripe.

I am so, so excited because next Tuesday my sister, her husband, Tyrion and I are flying home to Cape Cod. As a sidenote, JetBlue’s decision to fly direct to Hyannis during the summer is kind of the best thing ever. In the past, we’ve had to brave a seven (sometimes longer!) hour drive up there with all the rush hour (here) + bridge (there) traffic. Not this time! We’re going for a whole week and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ve been feeling the need to hit “reset” lately, and a week away at home in the salty air will be just the thing.

My parents’ house is about a mile away from the beach so I’m packing a suitcase full of bikinis, cozy tees, pretty dresses (this is a new fave) and (duh) lots and lots of stripes. And lots and lots of books.ย What I’m not packing? (most)ย makeup, and my blowdryer. It’s my happy place. The second we cross the bridge I instantly feel lighter. I can’t wait.

  6. So many cute things on this list. I like the purse, but too pricey for me. I really like a small, cross-body purse. Your trip sounds fun. I’ve always wanted to live in that part of the country. I’d be at the beach all the time.

  11. I love the black version of the Everly Rowan skater dress. My other favorites from this post are: the navy/ivory beach tunic, the BP.
    Heart Shaped 58mm Sunglasses, and the Phipps leather sandals.

    You and I are on the same wavelength. I couldn’t swing the JFK to HYA flight this time around, but we are headed to Centerville late tomorrow via rental car and my packing list is nearly identical! I would add only one important item: a jacket! People forget how chilly it can get at night.
