It’s time! This weekend, my husband and I will depart for Ocraocke, NC. Our adventure marks my tenth trip to the island, and I’m just as excited today as I was when I first visited 20 years ago.

The drive from Charleston to the ferry port is a tour through some of the Carolinas most breathtaking landscape. Winding through the beautiful countryside of eastern NC, we take two lane roads over the waterways connecting North and South Carolina.

In preparation (ok, eager anticipation!) for our getaway, I’ve started pulling a few pieces from my closet. Today, I’m sharing my favorite beach staples that always find a way into my vacation suitcase. Between cool stripes and relaxed caftans, you’re read for any sandy weekend ahead!

What are your favorite beaches to visit in the summer? Share them with me in the comment section below.

Stay sunny,
