YO DEB READERS, DON'T FORGET ABOUT OUR SALE ON MINI DEANO TOTES! ENTER 'mini15' BEFORE CHECKOUT TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY!
CLOTHING PICKS FOR THE TRIP: keep your colors neutral and 'reasonable' for a quick getaway so you blend in with locals and you avoid messes that might otherwise require a mid-day change; we love contemporary takes on classic staples with an emphasis on good tailoring... a mid-weight safari jacket will keep you warm, while a more relaxed fit in a slim pant allows for plenty of movement and strolling around town.
HOST/HOSTESS GIFT OPTIONS: home decor that is not only useful but looks chic always constitutes a great host or hostess gift; we like Plastica's carafe and oven-proof bowls, both of which your hostess can use again and again as she entertains guests through the years! SCOUT's Mini Deano is the perfect added bonus, if you so choose to gift it; if not, keep it for yourself, but it's great for toting these gifts to the place where you're staying...
'ET CETERA' SUGGESTIONS: in your Original Deano, pack items for rest and for play... we suggest a simple set of pajamas that are cozy yet don't shout "I just got out of bed", so we choose Nancy Meyer's pretty & appropriate pieces for nighttime and for the break of day; at night when you're out around town, choose a convertible option for day-to-night changes in temps with a cashmere scarf from Etro; we love Steven Alan's preppy denim dress with a hint of sex appeal up top; for easy strolling, walk around in Havaianas flip-flops, the one we chose has the added and unexpected detail of a jewel flower!
