No matter where I’m going or how long I’m staying, I have strict rules about how much clothing I allow myself to bring. Generally, I only bring 5 tops, one pair of jeans (my favorite), two pairs of shorts, a pair of leggings, a swimsuit, and two dresses or jumpsuits. My jewelry is coordinated in a way that I have one set of necklaces, bracelets, and ear rings that match every outfit, two pairs of shoes that match each way I pair my outfits, sneakers and sandals (sometimes heels), and one purse that again matches all my outfit options. I generally will set up these outfits a week prior to my vacation so that I have everything prepared and nothing is forgotten. This way it is easier to pack it is less stressful and planning outfits while your on vacations is no longer an issue because they were all planned ahead of time. Of course my winter vacations differ in items but because it is summer these are your essentials. No more over packing or under packing you just have exactly what you need and exactly enough. Another reason I do this because I know I’m going to buy more clothes on vacation and I need the extra space in my bags for my new purchases!! Don’t make packing a stressful thing, it can be easy and super fun!
