I like to pack light when I travel. I bet this is surprising to you, but it’s true! I love packing simple pieces that I can mix and match to make different outfits. I also like to come home with a few new things so I make sure and leave extra room in my suitcase.
The Perfect Black Legging – I can’t tell you how many times I wore black leggings during my trip to San Francisco last week. Every pair of bottoms you pack should go with at least 2-3 tops you are bringing. I walked 15 miles a day to see the city and I was so thankful to be in leggings. You can style leggings with any and everything. I love to tie my denim jackets or flannels around my waist when I wear leggings with a tee. I also wear a lot of oversized sweaters with my leggings. Great style can be super simple.
Denim Jacket – This is such an essential piece to pack. It’s not a bulky item so you can tie it around your waist or fold it up and put it in your back pack. It’s the perfect layering piece to prepare for any kind of weather. You never know what will end up happening so travel prepared.
Scarves – Scarves are great to change the look of an outfit. Bring 2-3 and style them in different ways. You can mix and match and have a couple different looks. I also pack scarves to keep me warm on the plane. I’m always freezing.
Tees– Bring tees! These are the best layering pieces and essential to traveling. You will need these to layer with. I have a favorite tee for $19 from Madewell. Comes in so many colors.
Hunter Boots – I can’t tell you how many times I have needed rain boots while traveling. I now bring them with me everywhere I go. Even when I’m in Miami. I have been caught in the rain for a couple days. I roll clothes up and tuck them inside the boots for extra storage space. Hunter Boots are really comfortable too and I can walk for miles in them. I walked in them for 3 straight days while in San Francisco last week. I LOVE my hunters!! Every person needs a pair. I love the black matte and black gloss.
Striped Midi Dress – I bring a midi dress along with me every time I travel. My favorite striped dress is under $100 and perfect in every way. I tie my classic denim jacket around my waist and layer with a scarf in cooler temps. I wore this striped dress in PARIS! It’s perfect.
Sunglasses– I pack one or two pairs of oversized sunglasses when I travel. I keep sunscreen with me at all times as well. The more protected my skin is from the sun and being outside the better I feel. I love this collection of glasses so much!
