My packing philosophy is pretty simple! Through trial and error I’ve learned that versatility is key and bringing options that work for a variety of occasions and can be styled for day and night is pretty much everything! The below 3 items are my absolute favorite chameleons because they can be worn just about everywhere and with everything!
One piece swimsuits! A very chic, super flattering alternative to a bikini, I love that they can be worn as a top. For me, packing is all about savings space, so I live for items I can wear in different ways, and that’s why I love one piece suits. Obviously great at the beach or at the pool, they actually look very cool paired with with shorts, midi skirts and dressy sandals! CLICK HERE to see how I styled one for the city recently.
The right accents! In an effort to save space, I always make sure to bring a few accessories I can use to dress up my casual pieces for evening. I think that accents, more than anything else determine the vibe of a look! A pair of high heels, statement earrings and a clutch bag is often all you need to make a look evening appropriate! Below are some of my current favorites!
Chic daywear! Once again, versatility is key when it comes to minimizing the items you have to bring with you on your trip, so I always make sure to pack something that can be worn with flats and a cute tote bag during the day, and dressed up with heels and a clutch for an evening out. Take the set I’m wearing above for example, wore it to breakfast with friends on a recent Las Vegas trip, and to a dinner with my husband paired with these sandals in nude, hoop earrings & bag, and it worked perfectly for both occasions!
