This week my husband and I are headed to Spain’s Costa del Sol as guests of SeaDream Yacht Club.  We will be exploring 8 locations from Malaga to Barcelona including the private port, Puerto Banus.  Today, I’m sharing my packing list with you of all the things I’m taking with me.

I’m always surprised at how much these packing lists resonate with my readers and how they bring new readers to The Lush List as well.  Like my Italy Packing List, this packing list is filled with casual day looks for exploring the ports and both casual and dressier evening looks for nights on the SeaDream I.  (You can learn more about SeaDream and their twin mega yachts here as well as a special offer for my readers!)

I’ve been eyeing this beautiful dress for a while and was thrilled to see it on sale in every size!  It’ll be perfect for night and also this fall at home.  This ochre trimmed dress was one of the first I purchased for this trip.  This was the second!  I love it’s muted print in fall colors.

Of course, I’m bringing along this classic dress and this version as they are perfect for day and night.  This style need to be in your closet because they are staples for this designer and so versatile.  It also comes in black.  This gorgeous red silk dress from Venice is also coming with me.  I wish I could wear it every day!

I’m loving red right now and excited to bring this modern shift from Tuckernuck.  It comes in several colors but the red is exclusive to them.  I love the simplicity of this silhouette. These earring are my new favorite!  They are so light and airy and make a great statement.

A great shirt dress is a must in your wardrobe and I couldn’t decide between this one, a classic that comes in several colors, or this one with the unique twist…so I’ll be bringing them both.  These are also classic staples that you’ll wear for years.

I just received this great bag and can’t wait to carry it all fall.  It comes in several colors but I love this classic caramel color.  It compliments the fall color palette I’m creating with these pieces as well as in The Lush List Fall Shop that launched Friday.  You can see a sneak peek of a few more items in packing from Front Door Fashion here and another special offer for my readers!

I’m planning on traveling in the same travel dresses I wore to Italy.  You can’t better than this with the cardigan for a long flight!

Be sure to follow along on Instagram so you can see the beautiful ports along the way.  I’ll be saving them on my highlights like I did for Rome, Florence and Venice.  I’ll be sharing posts when I return on our itinerary with SeaDream as well as how I styled all of the pieces as I did for our Italian vacation.
