Packing for The Roxy Beach House

The Roxy girls are gearing up to make the cross-country journey to the Quiksilver Pro, NY 2011 for some fun-filled times at the Roxy Beach House, but the inevitable first step to any trip is the all-important bag packing.

I’ve decided that instead of creating a melodrama out of packing my hefty suitcase, that will keep me well-dressed for countless beach days in Long Beach, NY, Roxy Fashion Night Out, and all the other great parties soon to come, I’m going to  make this fun and shop for all the latest and greatest!

I always like to try and carry my bag on, but unfortunately that’s not an option for this trek so I’m taking my sturdy Cruise Ahead Upright Roller Bag in this black & white checkered pattern that happens to match my lovely laptop case- an essential when working away from the office (Equinox Bag)!  Some key pieces I’ll be sure to pack are this solid black Moroccan tri-top bikini. It will be the perfect basic to layer under my Criss Cross Tank and beach cover-ups like The Past Dress. This dress is a great option to transform from a day-at-the-beach to a night-on-the-town. For a little sun and weather protection I’m grabbing a pair of these chic kitty kat sunglasses and a Coast Line fleece Hoodie for those nighttime concerts & early morning yoga sessions!
