She finished packing in March, and I rounded up 10 of her non-negotiables for the cruise, including Tory Burch sandals, Spanx T-shirt dresses, Levi’s denim shorts, and more. Shop her picks, below.

As soon as this ​​Spanx AirEssentials Maxi T-Shirt Dress arrived at my mom’s house, she knew she’d be packing it for our upcoming cruise. She says, “It’s super comfortable,” “lightweight,” and made from the buttery-soft material she and Oprah love. It comes in black, maroon, and black-and-white stripe, with sizes ranging from XS to 2XL. It features an easy silhouette that skims along curves, a classic crew neckline, short sleeves, slits at both sides that come up to the knee so walking isn’t restricted, and a length that stops at the ankle.

My InStyle article reviews easily influence my mom, and recently, she was persuaded to buy my go-to Faleave Linen Palazzo Pants, so now we’ll both be wearing the breezy style on the cruise. The lightweight pants come in seven colors, including khaki, yellow, brown, black, and gray, and sizes range from XS to XL. They feature a drawstring with an elastic waistband, made from a cotton-linen fabric, a high-rise fit, two front pockets, and a relaxed palazzo design that falls away from the leg.

Dokotoo’s Button-Down Shirt is currently one of my mom’s favorite tops, so it should come as no surprise that it made it on the packing list.

There’s a button-up front for easy on and off, roomy batwing short-sleeves, small slits at the side seam, and it’s made from 100-percent cotton with a crinkled texture. It has a relaxed fit that hangs away from the body and hits about hip-length.

My mom loves a good multi-purpose dress, so she plans to pick up J.Crew’s Capitaine Linen Shirtdress because she can wear it as a dress with a nice pair of sandals or as a cover-up over her swimsuit. The dress comes in black, white, navy, light blue, and beige, with sizes ranging from 2XS to 3XL in regular, petite, and tall options. It’s made from 100-percent linen and features a button-front closure, a matching removable belt to cinch the waist, and pre-folded sleeves. The fit is relaxed, falls away from the body when not belted, and hits a few inches above the knee.
