Regular jaunts to Miami and Mykonos have made serial traveler, publicist, boutique owner, and Gentedimontagna contributor Andria Mitsakos an expert on packing for sunny vacations. She pulled together her favorite beachy finds (which are all available at her Miami boutique, ) and is offering Gentedimontagna readers a special discount.
As a frequent flier, I'm often asked how I travel without a suitcase. My answer? Toss the right things into a bag and you can go away for a weekend — or stay for a month. Here, I've pulled together a mix of my favorite warm weather pieces from my favorite warm weather brands.
I love the name of this company. The new water-wear line, made with limestone-based neoprene, is one of my latest obsessions. Each piece is amazing, but I particularly like this one, which features an original print by Athens-based designer and illustrator .

I first met the Frescobol Carioca guys at their store in Marylebone, London in 2014. Now their bats are the first things I pack in my carry-on — even before sunscreen. They also come in handy for easy entertainment during extended airport layovers.

When I designed this double bag, I named it for my Mum, who has massively influenced my sense of style. It fits all my essentials and keeps everything organized and accessible when I travel.

I wouldn't be caught without a mati (the Greek evil eye charm that protects you from negative energy and evil spirits), so I designed my own version in Greece. The solid rose gold with white diamond version is super beachy and looks good with a tan.

Although copied by many, my pal Valia pioneered this style inspired by ancient Greek designs. She lives in the Bahamas so she knows warm weather locales. These go with everything.
