Summertime is filled with travel. Which also means packing is added to the summer to-do list. Us women sometimes tend to overpack for vacations. I’m totally guilty! Just ask my husband about the check-in airport stories :). Over the past year or so I have become more mindful of what I pack. Partly to eliminate stress and also to gain skills to share with clients. What I have discovered is that planning ahead (and allowing more time than just the night before leaving) will equal a lighter suitcase and more cohesive outfits.
I’ve put together an example of how I’ve been outfit planning lately for travel. I keep in mind two important things: 1) stay within a color scheme and 2) each item that goes into my suitcase should pair with at least 3 other items.
I understand there are some exceptions when you’re traveling for special occasions like weddings, but this is more of a generalized list for any sort of summer vacation.
As I am writing this post I am sitting in the NC mountains with my mom. We decided to take a mother-daughter vacation this week. If you ever get a chance to do this with your mom, then go for it! It’s been so nice to step away from reality with her.
This type of trip is one that I need to incorporate a little outfit planning. We do not have a set agenda this week and we came with one car (so I didn’t have the space to pack whatever I felt like!).
