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.

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.

Vacation Planning: Spring & Summer Hair

The time for Spring Break and Summer vacations is swiftly approaching which means that it’s almost time to start thinking about your travel style. One of the things that I love about vacations is playing the part of a vacationing fashionista – Breaking out my resort gear, simplifying my beauty routine, and spending all my time in sandals & bathing suits. I keep boxes of vacation gear on the upper shelves of my closet filled with everything from bath suits, sarongs, and wet suits to colorful maxi dresses, sundresses, and bathing suit cover-ups.

In this three-part series I’ll discuss some of the most fun parts of getting away from it all – (1) Mixing up your go-to hair styles, (2) Changing your beauty routine to keep things simple, and finally (3) Styling & packing for your trip.
