I was recently packing to go on vacation and have been thinking about how I can take the stress out of the process for you. Do you struggle with what to take along when you travel? If so, then these quick and easy tips I’ve put together can help you be fashionable and functional!
Guidelines for Easy Packing:
1. Check the weather where you are going (hi/lo temps)
2. Make a list of the essentials: sunscreen, camera, etc. (when you have time type it up to print off for future trips)
3. What are you doing there? Night out? Amusement park? Beach? I always “map-out” my week with my calendar. For example, on Day 1 – 85 degrees and sunny casual day with dinner out. So I know that I need warm weather clothes for the day and a nice outfit for dinner. Do I need layers? Check the low temp! I do this for each day and then start pulling clothes based on what I NEED instead of just guessing.
Now start selecting things you want to take based on your weekly itinerary that you just mapped-out.
Pro Tip: If you have a hard time remembering what you were going to wear together take a picture like these and you’ll have it on your phone to reference.
