Packing Tips

T-1 day until I'm officially on spring break! Instead of spending our break together all of my friends are splitting up this year. Inspired by some of my friends vacation destinations, I put together ideas for outfits and essentials for each location.

If you are going to the beach don't forget it can still get a little chilly this time of year. I love jean shirts worn as cover ups and maxi skirts to keep my legs warm at night. Also, this may seem obvious, but don't forget sunglasses. Trust me, no one needs to go through the traumatic experience of having your eyelids sunburned like I did on the Tucker Family Coasta Rica vay cay. 

Beach Vacation Packing List:
-chambray shirt
-maxi skirt or dress

If you are jumping the pond, make sure you have all your essentials. A jacket for those rainy London days, light layers and big scarf to wrap up in. 

London Packing List:
-trench coat
-leather boots
-big scarf
-stripe t-shirt
-skinny jeans

New York is filled with tourists, but if you want to do it right it's all about blending in. Black, black and more black. I promise if you stick to this color scheme people will think you are an average New Yorker. As far as shoes go you want them to be comfortable for all the walking you will be doing, but that doesn't mean sporting Adidas running shoes. Like I said it's all about blending in. 

NYC Packing List:
-comfy shoes
-leather jacket
-dressy tank tops
-cash for taxis

The desert is hot. Make sure to pack things like shorts and wedges with long sleeve breezy tops. Anything light and airy is perfect for the dry desert heat!

My turn! I'm traveling east to South Carolina with my family this spring break. I plan on sporting outfits like this maxi dress with either a jean jacket or jean vest and comfy flats for walking through the quaint streets of Charleston. This is a city I've wanted to visit for a long time so I'm excited to check it off my list! Please send recommendations if you have any! 

East Coast Packing List:
-pastel sweaters
-white jeans (yes I'm breaking them out before Easter)
-strappy sandals
-boyfriend jeans

One final packing tip before you head off for spring break (I learned this one from my idol LC). Wear a scarf on the plane. Not only does it make your traveling outfit a little more stylish, but it also doubles as a blanket on those drafty airplanes. Now it's time to pull out the suitcase and get packing!
