Vacation Planning: Packing

Spring break and Summer vacations are truly amazing. I love Winter – Especially the accessories – And a snowy vacation can be magical. But there’s something so cathartic about losing the layers and spending some time enjoying sunshine and water after months of hiding from the harsh weather.

Bonus? Warm weather clothes take up dramatically less room in a suitcase! 🙂

So to help you with your vacation planning and weekend getaways here are some helpful tips and great recommendations for everything from packing and products to Summer staples and styling suggestions.

What To Pack:


Another important thing to think about when it comes to travel is your luggage – I live for Longchamp’s le pliage line since it’s convenient to store, easy to clean, and stylish to boot. I have the weekender and the expandable tote in black and always tuck one of the mini totes into my bag since I will inevitably need it at some point during a trip – Check out my Wanderlust post for more details.

  2. Love the tips 🙂 and love the articles you directed us to! 🙂


  3. These are such amazing tips. I love Hilary Rushford – she’s such a talented woman. And I rather not say anything about Leandra Medine – I’m a terrific big follower of her. However one tip that I swear by is carrying key accessory pieces. They jazz up every outfit, even if I’m wearing it more than twice. 🙂

  4. I love vacations – too bad I haven’t had a proper one in nearly 4 yrs! lol. I def need to save up for one. I love the pin up travel look, though that’s so much work! Summer trips are much easier to pack for which is nice. 😀 Thanks for this post ♥

    What to pack for a vacation is really important. If not you may end up bring your whole room or not bringing anything at all. I too usually bring expandable totes and and anything fold-able just in case. 🙂
