Alright, I am finally done packing for my two week trip I am going on starting tomorrow! I am very thankful to get to spend two weeks traveling to both Seaside, FL and the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee! It was quite a task to figure out how to pack for two full weeks to both the mountains & beach but I think I’ve done it! I asked my followers what type of travel post they wanted to read and here is what you said: how to pack and what I pack! So, that is exactly what I’m doing here. Scroll on down to read my LPOC travel tips and packing musts for your next big or small adventure.
First off, how freakin’ cute is this beach bag?! My mom got it for me from Target and it will hold all my beach needs! I am bringing along my favorite summer pieces and snacks including some Boom Chicka Pop(not sponsored, just passionate about popcorn).
Traveling is a chance to see new places and try new things. So why not do the same with your style?!
When I travel, I love to try out new styles that I typically might not wear back home. You get to start fresh somewhere new and no ones has to know that you are rocking that neck scarf for the first time. Maybe you just are that cool. But really, my number one tip for traveling is to branch out of your style comfort zone and go a little crazy. I am headed to the beach so my suitcase is bursting with vibrant colors! I am usually a more neutral gal so it is fun to dress a little girly-er than I typically do. When in Florida, that’s the saying, right?
How I pack:
I genuinely believe that overpacking is perfectly okay. I have tried the whole less is more thing on trips before and I end up regretting that I didn’t bring that one new dress or that cute top I love so much. I like having options, even when I’m not home. Now, if space is limited and you are flying, I totally understand how that might not be possible. I try to stick to some staples that will carry me through the week: denim, white shorts, graphic tees, tennies, anything and everything white!
Packing for both the beach and the mountains had its challenges but here is what is in my suitcase:
