They key is to refer to this list as you prepare for your trip, checking things off as you go.

    I think I recognized the hallway of the Beverly Hills hotel in one if the photos. Isn’t that a wonderful hotel? We stayed there one Christmas a few years ago.

    I so love your articles. Have you ever been to The Stanley hotel in Estes Park?

    Love, Aunt Jeanne

      It looks exactly like the Beverly Hills Hotel but it’s actually in Palm Beach, Florida! I’ve never been to the Stanley!

    Amazing style all around and you sold me on the Madewell tie-front top. Just bought it through your link — thanks!

    Where’d you find the straw sun visor in your ultimate packing list (not the “ridiculous” one)?
