Packing Tips to Travel in Style

Ah, summertime, the time of year to pull out your favorite pair of shades and dust off your bikini. Whether you’ll be beachside working on your tan, adventuring in the outdoors or shopping your way across the state, here are some packing tips to help make your summer vacation the best one yet!

Choose A Few Different Styles

If you’re like me, you’ll be tempted to bring everything in your closet. To avoid getting overwhelmed, start by pulling out items you’re naturally drawn to and then piecing looks together. Try matching one blouse with a few different bottoms or consider a dress that can easily change from day to night. Choosing pieces that can work in a variety of different ways is one of the most important packing tips to remember! Definite must-haves: a reliable pair of jeans, comfortable walking shoes and an on-the-go bag like our Brunch Bag.

Pack Light, Pack Smart

Whether you’re bringing a big suitcase or a carry-on, packing light is always a good choice. Trust me, you never know what souvenirs you’ll want to bring back with you. Once you’ve narrowed down your vacation wardrobe to the most versatile pieces, start weeding out anything unnecessary. Do you really need that bulky pair of boots or chunky sweater?

Make Sure You Are Prepared!

You never know what may happen during vacation, so make sure you have everything you may need like an umbrella for sudden rainstorms or an extra phone charger just in case. Extras to consider bringing: sunscreen, lip balm, cash, hand sanitizer, gloves, hat, inflatable pillow, first aid kit, etc. Believe me – you can never be too prepared!

At the end of the day, though, vacation is about having fun. Breathe in some fresh air and enjoy your summer vacation. You deserve it!
