Packing as a Fashionista

Packing as a Fashionista

It’s hard to focus on your fashion blog, take all the pictures in a different outfit daily and pack like a boss.

Summer is the time for travel. Summer is the time to make the pavement your runway. But the airlines really try to make it hard for you to be a fab femme.

Let me give you my tips to packing for a weeklong trip. I want to start out with this fact: Using just a carry on is just not realistic for us all.

 

 

Get out your basics,

1.     2 pair blue jeans                            

2.     1 pair of black jeans

3.     1 black pencil skirt

4.     1 little black dress

Now you can take your basics and jazz them up with shirts and accessories. I personally like to take a lot of basic t-shirts, rompers and dresses to pair with kimonos, cardigans and blazers. They are all lightweight and easy to pack.

Pair all items into outfits. Two shirts per pair of jeans along with kimonos, cardigans and blazers.

NOW PUT BACK HALF OF THOSE SHIRTS, DRESSES AND ROMPERS BACK INTO YOUR CLOSET.

Most people think you need at least two to three outfits a day. But trust me you don’t. If your exploring a new city or country its very rare that you go back and forth to your hotel changing your outfit for every new location.

 NOW THAT YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR OUTFITS. TAKE JUST BASIC BRAS. 1 WHITE, 1 BLACK AND 1 STRAPLESS. 10 PAIR OF PANTIES AND 6 PAIR OF SOCKS. 1 PAIR OF BASIC PUMPS. FLAT SANDALS AND TOMS OR FLATS ARE GREAT BECAUSE YOU CAN PACK MORE OF THEM WITHOUT TAKING UP A LOT OF SPACE. IF YOU MUST HAVE BOOTS WEAR THEM DON’T PACK THEM. TOILETRIES ARE SIMPLE IF YOU DON’T PACK TO MANY.

NEVER PACK BLOW DRYERS (EVERY HOTEL HAS THESE IN THE ROOMS)

As far as make up is concerned. PALETTES ARE THE BEST WAY TO GO! Eye shadow palette, bronzer palette, blush palette and a contour palette. Mascara, eyeliners, lipsticks and travel sized brushes can all go into your carry on.

These items should fit into a large suitcase if you roll up all your clothing items.
