While working on this beach wardrobe, I've been asking myself what types of activities I plan to do on this trip. Plenty of beach and pool lounging, that's a given. I'd also like to take a side trip to Ocracoke village and browse the quaint shops, have a nice grown up dinner with my husband, go horse spotting on the 4x4 beach, and maybe a bit of biking if I can get my bike in rideable condition before the trip.
So, I'm going to want a lot of shorts or capri pants. To wear with those, I want something different from the tshirts and shapeless tanks I usually default to.
I'm also considering adding the modern McCall's shorts to the mix, because I like shorter shorts as well.
