Vacation Wardrobe

I love clothing, I love shoes, and I love accessories.  I do not like packing for vacation and being stressed about having multiple bags or an overweight bag.  Literally, I am the crazy lady hopping on and off the scale with my enormous suitcase until I hit the perfect weight to have room to bring things (toys) home with us.  I managed to pack myself, and both kids for one week in a single suitcase - ten pounds underweight (what what!)  However, I wasn't dressing too fancy this week.  



I stuck to rompers (both Lily) which could be worn during the day or night, JCrew shorts because they go with everything, and a couple of pairs of neutral sandals.  I only packed one patterned shirt, but made sure it matched two pairs of my shorts, and kept the rest of my tops neutral.  We were lucky enough to have access to a washing machine, but neutrals that can be mixed and matched are key when traveling.  This left me room to pack a surplus of children's clothes, which all managed to be used.  Twice.  

Shorts  ||  Tank  ||  Romper  ||  Sandals

How do you pack?  We have more traveling coming up and the more space-saving tips, the better!

  1. I'm usually the world's worst over packer! When we went on our honeymoon, I think I packed like 25 outfits for 11 days, haha. On our trip to Florida last month, my husband and I packed in ONE suitcase and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be! I planned out ahead of time an outfit for each day and made sure they were pretty much all neutrals so I could mix and match them. And instead of folding our clothes, we rolled them. It saved SO much space and nothing was wrinkly like I was worried about!

    1. It makes it so much easier to pre-plan outfits right! Rolling is also fantastic! I know someone who uses space bags and I have definitely thought about it. I'm always so worried I will be without something and absolutely need it ;)

  2. Those rompers are both amazing! Love them!! Loving the bright yellow shorts too! Bright colors are such a must for vacation :) They accentuate your tan! I'm horrible at packing! I always either overpack or under pack.

    1. I love bright colors for vacay - the best time to have them! The best part of under packing is that you have to go shopping to make up for it!

  5. I am going on vacation to Italy in about two months and tried to plan outfits where I could use the same shorts two or three times! I also tried to pick patterns that I could "get dirty" without it being noticeable, because I don't know if and when we will wash clothes!

    1. I highly recommend bringing a small bottle of Woolite and handwashing - it's great to get mroe wear out of things!

  6. I am with you, when it comes to packing. One of my tricks to keep things light is to just pack 1 or 2 pairs of neutral shoes that can be worn with any outfit.

    PS- Isn't the Lilly romper your fave?
