Nine Days ‘Til I am Cruising….

Posted on: September 15, 2016


I am getting packed and thought I would share with you my 

choices for the Bermuda 5 night Cruise 



Two bold colored maxi dresses for easy dinner outfits.  


A beaded maxi dress and a pilazzo style pant jumpsuit, 

again for wearing to dinner. 

I didn’t photograph them, but I am bringing cardigans and wraps 

to make sure I am warm enough for the reported cold AC on the ship.  


Floral dress with sleeves that can be long or rolled up 

and a vibrant orange lace dress, found HERE.  

I love the ideas of short dresses for lunch or any time I am not at the pool

during the day or even perhaps to wear after dinner if I want to change from the maxi’s for night activities . 


This grey dress is my beloved vacation dress and has gone on virtually 

every vacation I’ve ever taken.   I recently hit up Ebay and found this purple 

and gold version made by Bailey Blue.  

Again day dress options and I am pretty sure these will be what I wear on

the days I am off ship and touring Bermuda. 


Here are the shoes I am bringing 

from left to right , they are 

Nude blinged out Naturalizers in nude with a low very comfortable wedge, found HERE 

Navy Vince Camuta laser cut sandals

Clarks Black Wedges, these are higher but very comfortable

 Black sequined Kalso Earth sandals ,

these babies are so comfortable and will ensure my back is safe in walking any time

and finally Clarks black slip ons again comfortable walking shoes.  


I added 3 bottoms in Navy, white and Black. 

The Navy skirt is new and can be found HERE 


3 tops all in Blue themes… I love the navy floral peplum 

with the navy skirt and am so excited to wear that one day.

The  paisley design one can be found HERE  


Two other options for tops, because there is no way 

I can go on vacation without some flowy , boho  style kimono tops, lol 

My formal wear is not pictured, but I will get a picture to show on the day I wear it!

I am also bring tennis shoes and workout outfit or two to get in some walking or other exercise to try not to have any weight gain despite fun and drinking…

I’ve accomplished this a lot on vacations, so fingers crossed!   


I am grateful to a dear friend who invited me to go see

Hart, Joan Jett and Cheap Trick and a fun night of music and dancing . 

I am grateful that we are back into bowling season with my homeschooler as it really is a wonderful additon to our lives, to get out and see friends and have fun .  

I am grateful for phone calls from my only child now away at college, he truly keeps me in the loop!  

I am grateful that my daughter is home with us this year after so many years in college getting both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree.   

I am grateful for this upcoming cruise of course and for the way so many women have said they’d like to join us for a trip next year…so grateful for the possibilities to brighten the lives of others as this has brightened ours these past two months of anticipation!

Oh, i bet you are so excited Tracey!!
I think some of the fun of vacations is the planning—and for me that includes what I’m going to wear!! That’s why I don’t understand only taking a carry on bag?? I can’t even fit my shoes in that–ha ha!

I love changing outfits at least twice a day and am an over packer… I make no apologies for it but think I did pretty good with shoes this time around.. I am taking a rolling large duffle bag and a carry on back back, both can squash down and go under the bed, important for a cruise! And yes, the excitement is certainly building!

Love the clothing selections..your excitement is evident! Can’t wait to see all the pictures! 😎 🚢

Thank you! I forgot to mention that I also kept in mind that if there are storms that prevent us from heading to Bermuda, that I am prepared for Boston, which is where we would go…

I’d say you have a plan A and a plan B- but it looks more like a plan B and a back-up plan B! I’d love to go to either of those wonderful places.. 👍 You will have a GREAT time!

Have a safe and fun trip! I like your clothing choices. They all look like items that will pack well and not wrinkle.

Yes, that was a big consideration since no irons or steamers can be brought. I am bringing Downy Wrinkle Release spray to try . Thank you!

I appreciate your advice, however I have been to many resorts and dress for dinner on every vacation I’ve ever taken. It’s part of the fun for me… The dresses I plan to wear for excursion days I’ve worn in St. Maarten and The Cayman Islands. I am not much into shorts and I live in a hot humid beach town, lol…

I love your travel outfits, Tracey! Great choices. I know you’ll have so much fun. 🙂
