Since I have been traveling around so much lately, packing has been on my mind a lot. It is something that I actually enjoy doing, probably because it gives me an excuse to bring out my secret A-type personality and plan outfits days in advance. Plus, packing gives you a little taste of the excitement of things to come. In all of my experience, I have come up with some good ways fit everything you need into a small suitcase. The first thing that you need is a comfortable but cute travel outfit. My favorite thing to wear is my comfiest jeans, a neutral top, a leather jacket, flats, and a beautiful scarf.
All of this fits into that little suitcase... and clothed me for almost a week. I even had room for my steamer and hot rollers. Below you will find my tips to packing light and still being stylish.
A great way to cut down on pieces in your suitcase is by packing separates that coordinate so they may be worn together. I like to come up with a color scheme and for this trip I went with fuschia and chartreuse mixed with neutrals. It is a bold color palette for sure, but I hate how often everyone dresses in blacks and grays in big cities, so I went for it.
It is important, maybe most important to bring shoes that are comfortable. I love to have a couple of shoe options every day, and that works best with neutrals. My two most comfortable heels: the cuffed black sandals (seriously, these Manolos are the most comfortable shoes ever) and my snake skin pumps. I next packed my black flats and low wedge espadrilles
Lastly, you have to pack your jewlery... I don't wear much but I like to have a couple different necklaces and an earring or two just in case. I decided on these necklaces because then I could have one that is chunky, one that is delicate, one that is casual, and one that is vintage and beautiful.
