Lucky me! Heading down to St. Barth’s  on a boat this holiday season with our generous besties.   What to pack is not a problem since I will literally  take a page from my own book to come up with the best advice around.   See sample page below.    If you don’t have a copy of  Packing for Travel, From Jet Set to Trek Set, the Definitive Globe Trotting Guide, I am happy to announce, it is available now on Amazon Prime.    As a summer baby, I have a natural affinity for the water –  bathing suits and cover ups are the order of the day, especially the cover ups.    Tory Burch always has a great selection so I started there and found most of what I needed for this amazing  holiday.
