Hello Darlings, Packing — it’s a love/hate affair! The anticipation of going someplace new makes me jump for joy but planning a wardrobe for the unexpected makes me panic. There is nothing worse than forgetting a favorite pair of pumps or a charger. Nonetheless, packing is an integral part of travel and one that can actual become enjoyable once you determine what type of traveler you are.

Personally, I enjoy travelling light and always looking for ways to pack less. I prefer not exceed two suitcases as having too many choices can be frustrating when you’re on the go. Packing is all about strategy, so consider the below and decide accordingly:

• Business or pleasure?

• Where am I going?

• Duration?

• Weather?

• Agenda and planned activities?

For my current trip I planned for the following: One week or so in Florida. The weather is in the mid-30s. Aside from staying active, working and catching up on reading, the plan is to do as little as possible. So for this trip, I packed a carry-on with the following key 10 items:

1.  Bikini - Depending on the length of your vacation, be sure to bring enough bikinis to keep you looking amazing.

2. Sunglasses - A pair of sunglasses to keep your eyes protected and to look chic sans make-up.

3. Laptop - I won’t travel without my laptop. It is as simple as that.

4.  Floppy Hat – It  not only looks glamorous but covers your face from the sun and keeps your hair color from fading.

5. SPF - I am obsessed with sun safety. I use sunblock all the time including a lip balm with SPF.

6. Simple Top – A versatile  top that can be worn with just about anything. I love nautical stripes for a beach vacation.

7. Books - I am always reading a book and a vacation is a perfect time to start or finish one. Currently, I am reading The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho and loving it.

8. Denim Shorts – A pair of comfortable pair of shorts can be dressed up or down.

9. Leather Flip Flops – I am not a fan of rubber flip flops and a pair in leather is must more chic.

10.  Runners – I’ve made a commitment to stay in shape this year, therefore my work out gear comes everywhere with me.

What do you plan on vacationing next?

 With Love…

Marta

  1. Packing for a trip is always a source of stress for me! I always overpack, my suitcase is always overweight and I get so anxious on the plane that I forgot something!
