Traveling light doesn’t mean sacrificing trendsetting!
When it comes to packing, everyone has a different approach. There’s the ‘stay up all night and toss everything in’ girl, there’s the ‘I’ve planned every outfit including the accessories & undergarments’ girl, and then there’s the ‘I’ve packed my entire closet into 3 bags, one for each day plus an extra bag for my shoes’ girl!
In my experience, the more you pack, the less you actually wear! Especially if you are going somewhere that happens to be a shopping destination. Have you ever strategically chosen each look you will wear out and then actually purchased an outfit for every occasion to wear instead? I am embarrassed to admit that I have often needed to purchase a new suitcase for the 5 pairs of new shoes I ‘need’ to transport home. Yes…5 seems to be my magic number.
I have done my research and have compiled some fun vacation looks that work for both daytime and evening to alleviate ‘over-packing.’ Remember…get creative with your look! Fashion has really no rules as long as you ‘own the look you’re in!’ Here are some on-trend options and where to find them at NEX Outlets! Happy Shopping! ♥ Johanna
