I absolutely love shopping for vacations! Love it! There’s something about enjoying the anticipation of a vacation through shopping that I love- the daydreaming, the anticipation, the excitement. This explains why I love to shop for others who are going on vacation so much. It’s almost like I get to go on a mini vacation in my mind!
My mother-in-law is headed to Maine for a month. She loves that area of the country, so she found a cute cottage on a rental site and booked it for a month. How cool is that? For her birthday/Mother’s Day, I decided to shop for her trip! She is an avid reader of C. Style and has been such a blessing to me. She is my number 1 fan, always readily giving out compliments and encouragement, which I can get all teary eyed over. She’s always reading the latest C. Style posts, and we like to discuss them, so I know her style requirements pretty well. I know she’s not a big fan of v-necks, she prefers her shirts looser because of her insulin pump, and she prefers her arms to be mostly covered.
Well, I was excited to find shirts that fit all three requirements. Plus, they are lightweight, darling and perfect for a vacation in Maine! Hello, navy and white nautical stripe tee! Hello, pink linen lightweight shirt! Hello, navy cotton, softest shirt you’ve ever felt in your entire life (I had to buy myself one)! What I love about all of these tops is that they would go perfectly with white jeans or white shorts. I bought her a pair of navy blue stud earrings (she prefers studs) to tie it all together! Boom! All packed for Maine! See, I feel like I’ve just been to the coast of Maine in a navy and white stripe tee, walked the streets of a cute town in the pink linen shirt, and eaten lobster in my navy lightweight shirt!
