It seems like everyone is traveling this time of year. While we usually look forward to a vacation, the planning and packing before can be a stressful part of the process. Trying to not overpack while ensuring you have all of the outfits and essentials you need for your trip can be a tricky balancing act. But it doesn't have to be! Keep reading to learn how to curate the perfect wardrobe for all of your upcoming trips!
When packing you may feel like you need to bring a different shirt for everyday or even every activity, plus sometimes a few extras "just in case." However, when you get home and start unpacking you realize you only wore half the items in your suitcase. By packing neutral-colored items that have a timeless cut, you are able to mix and match for almost every occasion.
Bring three casual or simple t-shirts or tank tops, as well as two dressier shirts or blouses for nighttime activities or more formal occasions. Layering is also a great way to change up your outfit without bring a lot of additional items. We recommend a light jacked or a blazer depending on where you are traveling to.
By bringing versatile bottoms you will be able to mix and match for days. When packing make sure you have a least one pair of bottoms that can be dressed up or down. This could be a midi-skirt or a nice pair of jeans. Bring a pair of comfortable bottoms for more active days, such as your favorite pair of leggings or running shorts.
On many vacations you will find yourself walking more than you do in your usual routine. Whether you are going site seeing or walking around a resort. Make sure you are packing a pair of multi-use shoes that are appropriate for most activities and comfortable. You will also want to bring a pair of dressier shoes, whether this is a pair of nice sandals, flats, or boots.
It can be very tempting to bring every bag you own with you on your vacation. But we promise you won't need them, and they will take up a lot of space that you could use to bring back souvenirs or other essential items you may need. Bring a simple bag that will match every outfit and will hold everything you will need on a day-to -day basis.
