No matter how many times we face the task of packing for a trip, it can still be time-consuming and inefficient. But, if done correctly, it makes all the difference! Here’s a flexible vacation packing formula for your upcoming vacation.
The Golden Rule for Packing:
If you don’t wear it at home, you won’t wear it on a trip! When it’s time for a vacation, the excitement of shopping for all of you vacation wish-list items becomes a task in itself. For example, if your hotel has a great tennis court, you might be tempted to find the perfect tennis outfit to strut your stuff. If you don’t wear tennis gear at home don’t pack it! Instead shop for items you wear at home like yoga pants and active wear tops for an afternoon of tennis.
Now that you understand the golden rule, you can begin to pack:
•7 pairs of underwear
•4 pairs of socks.
•2 Bras. Wear one, pack one. Add a sports bra if you plan on exercising.
•1 Swimsuit. No matter where you go hotels have swimming pools even if your vacation is not water related.
•1 camisole and/or round-neck t-shirt
•1 long-sleeved shirt
•1 button-down shirt
•OPTIONAL: 1 slip-dress.
•OPTIONAL: 1 ͞wild card.͟ This is a statement piece to break up tedium, and addspice for an evening out.
•1 pair of ͞adaptable͟ pants. Dark denim is classic and a great casual piece that you can dress up while on vacation.
•1 pair of active bottoms (shorts, pants, capris)
•1 sports bra •1 active top
•1 pair running socks
Outer layers (wear them on the plane)
•1 pullover sweater or sweatshirt
•OPTIONAL: Swap the pullover for a cardigan or blazer if that is more your style.
Shoes Bonus points for running shoes cool enough for city streets.
•1 pair of adaptable shoes you can wear with your pants, slip dress, and ͞wild card͟
•1 pair of running shoes that can double for non-exercise
•OPTIONAL: 1 pair of heels if you’re going somewhere dressy or ankle boots if you’re going to a tougher climate.
