Today marks the first day of winter and we’re distracting ourselves with dreams of warmer climates and resort getaways. As holiday travel hits its peak, we asked members of the J.McL team for their resort vacation must-haves. Shop our winter destination packing list!



Thea Fanny Pack

This fun rendition of our classic wicker bag is a must-have when packing for a resort vacation. It is perfect for traveling and taking you wherever you need to go. It’s a fanny pack, a clutch, and a satchel—whatever you need it to be!

Mary Raffia Hat

Add a second layer of sun block in this new go-to beach hat. Plus, it’s easily packable.

Tanya Raffia Tote

This bag is big enough to hold all of your seaside necessities, from your hat, to your book of choice, plus a change of clothes to take you straight from the beach to dinner.

Micki Deep V Swimsuit in Monterrey

What's the only thing that could make us love a heritage print more? Putting it on a stylish and classy swimsuit!

Britt Linen Shirt

Our cover-up of choice! A effortlessly chic linen shirt that’ll keep you looking and feeling cool on your way to the beach or sipping on a cocktail at the pool bar.

Jamey Sweater

Regardless of the destination, you can never leave home without a Jamey Sweater. Not only is this classic piece is perfect for layering under heavier outerwear for winter weather, but it’s also wonderful for cool nights in Florida or at an island getaway. This season we’re reaching for the light blue and green styles to add a little pop of color.

Hayley Dress 

There’s nothing better resort vacation piece than a Catalina Cloth. This dress comes in an exciting print and features a sporty shirt color to provide a relaxed, cool vibe.

Barlett Readers in Tortoise

These modern readers upgrade your sight and style. The tortoise style is a no-brainer, considering my favorite color is orange.

Redding Cap Toe Espadrille

We’ve updated our classic espadrille with frayed edges and two-tone coloring and can't wait to wear these with our favorite white Lexi Jeans. Even better, they’re low maintenance—just wipe with a cloth and they’ll look good as new.

Skyler Cashmere Wrap in Colorblock

Colorblock and classic cashmere, oh my! This wrap is ideal for breezy nights and is a no-fail layering piece. Pro tip: it looks great draped over a Jamey sweater.

For the Beach Boy: Gibson Swim Trunks

Colorful prints are perennial beach pieces, and our Gibson Swim Trunks in Knoa Palm will make him look and feel like he’s on island time. Plus, they’re available in two color combinations.
