In CC’s Suitcase & Chickdowntown.com Trove Tkees Giveaway!

First things first, darlings! The winner of CC's Chickdowntown.com Jill Stuart Windowpane Skirt Giveway is the lovely Captivate Me. Congratulations, darling!
CC is off on her beach getaway in Dewey Beach, Delaware! [This photo courtesy Fellow Fashionista Fashion Moment.]

Here are some of the items CC packed:
Bathing suits! Several bikinis and a maillot or two are essential for a coastal getaway. CC is bringing this Zelda Sweetwater suit. Perfect for lounging on the deck in retro fabulous style!
Two-pieces are CC’s go-to for sunbathing (avec SPF, naturally). This Victoria’s Secret sailboat bandeau top and boy short bottom made its way into the Dooney & Bourke luggage!
And this preppy VS striped suit!
And CC had to take this vintage-inspired polka-dot Popina Swimwear suit as well!
CC adores this Hat Attack cap. Check out the chic frayed grosgrain ribbon... In addition to a wide-brimmed sun hat, CC brought this little topper, too!
Of course, CC needs some shorts. J. Crew has been the go-to this summer for this warm-weather essential. CC is loving these rugby stripe shorts. The tailoring is impeccable and the pattern is fun and surprisingly flattering! In this photo, CC paired the shorts with a simply white tank from Old Navy and a gorgeous Tolani mauve zigzag scarf from Chickdowntown.com.
For those chilly summer evening barbecues, a cardigan or two, either in lightweight cashmere or a sturdy cotton and linen blend. This J. Crew cardi is embellished with ruffles ~ CC adores!
Some dark skinnies are essential, along with a pair of crisp white jeans. CC will certainly be taking these gorgeous J Brand beauties from Chickdowntown.com. Fabulous with a chiffon blouse for an evening on the town. Or pair them with a simple pocket tee for a chic sunset picnic on the beach.
This T by Alexander Wang boat neck dress from shopbop.com is perfection! It can double as both a day dress or cover-up, or, with some chic booties, an evening frock! Furthermore, the cotton is super-soft and comfy. This dress is positively dreamy ~ a very happy summer addition to CC’s wardrobe!
To show off those tanned shoulders, this Sofie Olgaard Alasso silk dress, available at aspiringcouture.com, is a must!
Naturally, a maxi dress is essential. CC is totally smitten with her new Yumi Kim Sari Abstract Rose dress, at yumikimshop.com. Gorgeous print, impeccable fit.
Lastly, CC needs some flip-flops. Check out these adorable Trove Tkees sandals from Chickdowntown.com. CC has a pair (in the winner's choice of color!) to give away to one lucky CC reader. One Week Contest! To enter, simply leave a relevant comment on this post! Limit one entry per blogger. Internationals welcome! Good luck, darlings!
