Packing 101

Full disclosure: I always over pack for every trip. It doesn't matter if I'm heading to the beach for a long weekend, I will pack five pair of shoes, six "going out" outfits, and ten "causal" outfits. Minimum. And I'll wear three of the said outfits.

This week I'm heading to Miami for a girls weekend. I have two goals for the trip. One is staying up past midnight ( #grandma, my friends will help with this goal) and two is to wear everything I pack. I'm not promising I won't over pack but I am making it a goal that everything I do pack I wear while I'm there.  To help achieve this goal below are some of my packing tips.

1. Pack pieces you can wear with multiple outfits. The stripe top can easily be worn with cut offs or the cream crochet shorts, while the floral top can be worn with both as well and can also be worn as a bathing suit cover up.

2. Accessories. I'm a big fan of accessories on a trip because they can change up your whole outfit. Add a statement necklace to a simple cotton dress and you can take it from day to night easily. For this trip I'm all about hats as my go to accessory.

3.  The dress. I believe no matter where you're traveling a good dress is a key item to pack. Of course, depending on the location will determine the style of the dress but whether you're planning on going to a nice dinner,walking all over a city, or going to the beach, a dress is a perfect outfit.
