*I’ve been traveling a lot lately and just wanted to share a few helpful traveling tips*
Give yourself enough time! Last-minute packing can lead to forgotten essentials. A few days in advance is best, but at the very least, pack the day before you travel.
Work with a neutral color palette! Mix and match pieces in simple silhouettes are key. Add color with just a few playful accessories.
Layer your bag! Place shoes on the bottom, then roll clothes instead of folding to cut down on wrinkles. Start with heavier pieces, then add light, delicate items last. Wrap delicates in tissue if possible.
Maximize your carry on! Use an oversized tote that can double as a beach bag. Compartmentalize valuables and other necessary items in small pouches that can work as evening bags on your trip.
Wear the heaviest items you’ll use on your trip! Save space in your suitcase by wearing bulkier items, like jeans, knits or jackets, while traveling.
Carry a light scarf or shawl! It works as a blanket or pillow in transit and as a pretty accessory at your destination.
Go for ballet flats! They’re polished and easy to slip on or off. (I usually wear heels but flats are so much easier when going thru security or running to catch a late flight)
