helllllo from Sag Harbor! I took the bus out here yesterday and arrived just in time for 6pm yoga practice. It’s so nice to be here. I did this exact same retreat last year and it was one of the best weeks of the whole summer. (So much so that nearly the whole crew from last year came back!!!) I have talked a lot about yoga retreats in the past…. if you’re thinking of taking one, definitely read this post! In the meantime, here are some of the important things I packed for this year’s trip! And be sure to follow along on Instagram stories though it may cause extreme food envy.
What I Packed for a 5 Night Yoga Retreat in Sag Harbor.
Tracksmith sent me this tote and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It’s a great carry-on bag actually, as there’s sleeve for your laptop.
If you read this blog post then you know that body scrub is a must if you are using mineral sunscreen. No matter how good your mineral sunscreen is, it’s such a pain to take off so scrub is essential. I brought my beloved Follain scrub. It’s one of my all time favorite body scrubs.
This is a funny thing to pack for a yoga retreat but I have a tub!!! I’m in my same room as last year, so I knew this. Christopher (my friend who runs the retreat) is so sweet and knows I like my baths so he gave me the room with the tub. Perfection. These bath salts are SO nice at night after evening practice.
Lots of Yoga Clothes
We will be doing ten classes while I’m out here. This is the 5th yoga retreat I’ve ever taken and I remember on the first few retreats I would pack ten yoga outfits. That’s just so much to pack (and a lot of laundry to do when I get home!) Now I pack 5 outfits, and in between I rinse them in the sink and hang in my shower; wearing each outfit twice. This works well for me. I don’t sweat a ton during yoga and it allows me to bring my smaller suitcase.
My cute new set from Summersalt!
I’ve been waiting all summer to wear this… I bought this yellow + white stripe swimsuit (top + bottom) and matching sarong. It’s extra (maybe a little too extra for a retreat as yoga retreats are super casual!) but I don’t care. I’m living for the Giorgio Beverly Hills vibe!
Warmer things for at night
This is a big one! Last year I was so cold at night! This year I packed a few striped breton tees, a comfy hoodie (again – retreats are super casual!) and this MM La Fleur sweater which you know I lovvvve and wear constantly.
Four Great Books!
It may be too ambitious but I’ve packed four books for this trip. The Wedding Party, With The Fire on High, Tell Me Everything, and Lock Every Door! We shall see how I do. I will have to work a bit while I’m there but I’m hoping for two solid days of reading in between yoga classes!
