Are you ready for summer vacations?

I love to help my clients put together some go to outfits ahead of time for travel; I find that this makes packing for a trip much easier!

Take inventory of your closet and wardrobe when the seasons change, it will help you to avoid any last minute panic. Don’t run out shopping right before a trip, create some outfits you love ahead of time. Assess your closet and make a list of any pieces you are missing. When you have a list of what you truly need, you’ll be prepared and shop more intentionally in the future.

I recently made this outfit for a client and it just feels like a day at the beach to me. Throw on some sandals and you are ready to go to lunch or dinner or a day of sightseeing.


Tips on packing for your next trip

One easy way to pack light is to pack some staple pieces and then pack accessories to change up the looks. This is a perfect example of a black faux leather moto jacket that can be dressed up with a skirt or worn over a dress. Or you can wear it with jeans or leggings.

You can really change the look of the outfit just by changing the scarf and earrings. Scarves and earrings don’t take up much room in a suitcase and can really help you create so many more outfit combinations! So get creative and have fun with your wardrobe!
