This post has been inspired by my good friend Mireille AKA Zara la Chocolatée! Shout out to you Z! Not only for being a valuable friend, but also for being a great support system, cheerleader, and most importantly, for trusting me with your questions (they’re always welcome!) and believing in what I do! 😉 When Z asked me to help her put together a packing list for her next trip, I thought it was an easy task and, as I was completing the list, I came to realize how challenging and frustrating it can be to folks, especially if packing isn’t really your cup of tea. Then came in mind the idea of the next post on the blog. You all know I love to share anything that I believe would be useful and helpful. Perfect timing, right?!
So here are a few “must-take-with-you” items and packing & travel tips:
–Jeans and shorts! If you love them, bring them, no matter what people will tell you! (They smell bad when wet, they’re too heavy and take up a lot of room etc…) You will miss them if you don’t! Bring at least 2 pairs of each with you. They’re comfy, convenient, and always in style.
– Tank tops, T-shirts, cami and/or off the shoulder tops will be your best friends. You can’t go wrong with any of those in a steamy hot weather.
– Maxi dresses and Maxi skirts! Any fashionista’s must-have! Whether strolling along a sandy white beach or a city sidewalk, a fluid maxi dress brings tranquil energy to every day.
–Jean Jackets or cardigans.They always come to use. You never know when Mother nature will play tricks on ya!
–A little black dress: A classic! Add a shawl for the cooler night and you’re ready to take on the city! Plus, as we, fashionistas say, when in doubt, always wear black!
