It's that time of year. Beach getaways, family vacations and exotic retreats are marked on the calendar. But before you hop on the plane, you face the task of packing.
Although choosing clothing and accessories can be exciting, it can also be challenging — especially when you're in the midst of coordinating a plethora of other details before your trip.
With some thoughtful preparation, you can efficiently pack a suitcase with photo-ready options for any occasion. The best way to start? By planning out — or at least getting an idea of — the outfits you'll want to wear during your trip.
Today, I'm sharing three casually chic outfits that I'll be taking on my next getaway, along with some packing tips to help you travel in style and ease.
I'll admit it. I have a penchant for overpacking. One of the biggest mistakes is using too much space for packing multiple items that can't be re-worn.
Bringing items that are versatile is key. The breeziest silhouettes include off-the-shoulder dresses and lightweight rompers. Rompers are a perfect choice for sightseeing during the day and can easily transition for dinner. This one is made by Between Me & You, and is available at Don Me Now. If you live outside of the Tampa Bay area, I'm linking a similar embroidered romper available on Amazon.
Effortlessly stylish and breezy, a maxi dress is a vacation must-have. This chambray maxi can be worn a variety of ways. Throw it over a bathing suit for a beach cover-up or wear it open and layer with a pair of white denim jeans and crop top. The tencel material is ultra comfortable and lightweight. This dress is designed by Sneak Peek and available at Don Me Now for $60. I absolutely love the paneled bottom which looks great whether you're wearing flats or wedges. If you're interested in ordering this dress, send me a message. I'm also linking a similar chambray maxi available online.
Prepare to see this multi-color tassel crossbody in many more blog posts to come. It has quickly become one of my favorite pieces. It's a perfect purse to bring on your next trip because it essentially matches with everything.
Make sure to pack separates in light fabrics. Two of my vacation staples are off-the-shoulder tops and white denim jeans. White jeans are so versatile when traveling and can be re-worn with a variety of different tops.
