I'm going to break up my Florida travel post into 2 sections, like I did last year.

Shoes: 2 pair Birkenstocks and 1 pair of canvas sneakers. All got worn quite a lot. Normally I could have brought just 1 pair of sandals for a week, but both of these were new (yes, I know....don't bring untested shoes on vacation) and I wanted to break them in. Sneakers I would have just worn on the plane, but the archery range in my dads community has fire ants :/

Bag- yes I brought Rebecca on my clear kayak manatee trip. She dried out just fine Wish I had something smaller, like a bum bag, though for quick trips.

Hat- not worn. Not ponytail compatable. Fail!

Swimwear- worn A Lot! The tankini I used at dad's pool/hot tub, the rashguard and 1 piece for lap swimming at the Y. My dad and I were outside swimming in about 40 degree weather (heated pool) at 5:30am. Yikes!

Makeup- normally I use mineral powders, but they're messy for travel, so these were my solution. The blush/lip sticks and brown (technically face shaping, but used for brows, eyeshadow) worked well. Mascara, cream eyeshadow, concealer fine too. Foundation (Elf liquid decanted to small container) was way too greasy, though the color is just right. Will look for a bb cream next year, or just deal with powder. Also- it was not hot, only about low 70s at max. If it had been normal Florida heat and humidity, these things could be problematic.
Anyone have any good travel makeup ideas to share?
