Packing List: These Three Are Coming With Me

Packing for the Vineyard is a challenge this summer. Years past, I threw swimsuits, tennis gear, and my summer go-tos into an L.L. Bean tote and that was that. In addition to the habitual standbys, for this trip I’ll need dressy outfits for a cocktail at the beach and a small dinner I’m hosting at our hotel. I dug deep into my closet for inspiration for the cocktail party and pulled out a Valentino black lace shift that I will cinch with the Saint Laurent chain belt. The K. Jacques bikini sandals will make the look a bit more relaxed. For the dinner, my Louboutin sandals, similar to the ones Jeanne Damas wore to a Louis Vuitton event top, will jazz up a simple cropped Matteau top and Anine Bing midi-length satin skirt combo. And, the beige Hermès clogs were the best purchase of SS21, I pretty much live in them.

    Also, quick question on the clogs: did you put rubber on the bottom? I worry that they need it but don’t want to ruin them either.

  • I always pop in! Rubber might be a good idea…

  • All gorgeous choices! Does anyone know what season those LV sandals are from?

  • I’m assuming they are current Louis Vuitton because they were worn to an LV fragrance launch earlier this week.

  • All excellent choices, especially love the idea of the black shift with your sandals. Dreamy. So so fun to plan for parties and get togethers.

  • Question re the clogs: do these actually stay on your foot?? And are they soft or hard on the foot given the wooden base? I wonder if a slingback style is better for a slim foot like mine – but it’s hard to go past those Hermes ones!

  • Saw that same pic of Jeanne Damas and immediately followed her on Instagram. Looking forward to seeing pics of your outfits.

  • Preston, I bought a black cotton T-shirt dress (Hermes) which has become my go-to for summer cocktails. When I switch up my sandals /jewelry, it dresses up in a snap! The cotton is a beautiful weight that stays crisp looking. It is also perfect for a hot day in the city with walking shoes and a hat. I love your black lace Valentino. Nothing beats a great dress that works for years!

  • I have the same first two questions as Eloise above. I like to be able to walk in my little town and do my errands…TIA
