don't leave home without it

i'm posting from chania, crete this week. i'm here on a job, but i would really describe it as a "work-cation". somehow sailing on the aegean to a secret beach doesn't really feel like work. i always try to pack light and leave room in my suitcase for any treasures i find while out shopping, so anything i bring has to have multiple purposes. like the hammam towel i picked up at john derian a few years ago- so far it's been my blanket on the plane, scarf in the cold temperatures of early morning, towel after swims, and sarong. i love that it takes up so little room in my bag. and, i love how it looks hanging in my bathroom at home. one thing i've noticed is the really get much softer and absorbent after many washings, so don't be surprised if they feel like "it's wiping you hand on a leaf" (as my husband put it) at first. trust me, after the fourth or fifth washing you'll be sold. i've seen similar towels at abc, brook farm general store, and layla, but l'aviva home has some at the best price and most beautiful patterns, in my opinion.
