What's In My Bag: Nicole K

Traveling is both a mix of fantasy and headache. Between planning flights, activities, and hotels, the last thing you want to think about is packing for vacation. It’s hard not to bring your whole wardrobe with you and plan ahead what outfits you will wear and when. With Trim’s handy guide, you’ll never despise packing again! So whip out your suitcase and let’s get started.

 

The Essentials

Pack your basic tees, jeans or shorts, tanks, and dresses in neutral colors such as white, navy, black, and tan. All of these pieces will act as the foundation for your vacation wardrobe. Also, pick comfortable styles that can be easily layered, depending on what the weather is wherever you are traveling to. Bring a jean jacket and cardigan for nighttime or chilly days!

Now it’s time to grab all your jewelry, handbags, scarves, and any other accessories you might need. These will add a pop of color and pizazz to your basic attire. Statement necklaces and earrings are a must when traveling and are usually lightweight. Bring 4 to 5 necklaces depending on how long you are vacationing. Bring jewelry in a zip jewelry case or roll so none of it gets lost in your suitcase.  Also, bring a large basic leather tote and sandals in a neutral color such as black or tan. The tote can be counted as your purse on the plane, and smaller crossbody bags can be stored in your suitcase. Don’t forget a hat if you are going somewhere sunny!

 

Let’s Get Some Shoes

Bring a pair of comfy sneakers even if they aren’t the most stylish. It’s much better to have comfortable feet if you are planning on walking around for hours at a time. Also, wear your heaviest shoes on the plane so your suitcase weighs less. Bring a pair of heels if you are planning to go out at night, and a pair of two sandals for day time activities.

 

Carry-Ons

Your carry-on is your best friend when it comes to traveling! Make sure to pack some of your shoes in your carry on, as well as two days worth of clothes and undergarments. In case your luggage gets lost while traveling, you will have some clothes to manage till it gets found! The website, Everlane, sells cute and simple weekender bags for $90.

Now you have your suitcase and carry on packed and ready to go! Congrats you did it!

 

Safe travels,
