A Fashionista’s Guide for Summer Vacation Packing


Our love for fashion is directly proportional to the hate we have for packing; yes, that’s right – we hate packing and we’re not afraid to say it. Unfortunately, if you are traveling a lot (or you, generally, like to travel whenever the opportunity presents itself but don’t travel often), you have to get those suitcases ready or you’ll end up looking like a circus. It’s all good, we’ve got you covered. We, ourselves, are fashionista gals and we absolutely understand the need to look perfect when you are going away and the horror of packing everything up so it doesn’t fail your fashion vision. So, with that in mind, we’ve put together a little tutorial that will help you get all of your essentials in one place and help you look your best!

Without further ado, here we go:

Nowhere without dresses

Summer should be all about breathable but luxurious fabrics (and cuts!) that emphasize your gorgeous curves but still let them breathe. We love the idea of rich maxi dresses that ooze chill but still give your look a note of lavishness and comfort. Depending on the occasion, you can wear them in various colors, patterns and cuts and cause intrigue each time you show up. Dressed up and down with the right accessories, your dresses will easily look like catwalk material. When in doubt, combine your beautiful copper jewelry with your ankle-length dress for a jaw-dropping effect and add a little whimsy with floral, fringe or lace cardigans.
For a little leg action, choose dresses up to the knee; shorter may work if you are aiming for I-look-too-hot-to-care look. And the materials? Lace, see-through/sheer options, cotton and silk. 

Accessories for life

 Even if you show up wearing just your bathing suit and accessorize it with some awesome jewelry, you’ll still grab the looks of everyone present! With that in mind, make sure you pack up your most favorite chunky jewelry (it’s summer after all), sparkly stuff and attention-grabbing items. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings – pack your favorite pieces that always, no matter what, make you feel gorgeous! We love the idea of a wide choker paired with a silk dress and heels or a diamond ring paired with diamond bud-earrings and a bodycon. There’s plenty of options to go with and we’ve got no doubt you’ll make it count.

Shoes cause drama

Depending on the number of days you’re vacationing for, make sure the shoes you pack serve their purpose. Although, we’re always pro flats, we’d advise you bring a pair or two (no more) of heels for special occasions (like a yacht party). Other than that, gladiator sandals in golden, silver or sand color will work perfectly. Plus, they pair beautifully with any item of clothes you pick – whether they are casual shorts and a T or a lux gown for the night. As for the heels, they do make a statement on their own – just make sure you wear them appropriately. Going to a beach party – no matter how lux – isn’t one of those heel-occasions, now, is it?

Your makeup and hygiene kit, above all else

When you are going on summer vacation, makeup is almost obsolete. After all, with the tan on and that beautiful summer glow, makeup plays a very tiny role and it’s there only to emphasize what’s already gorgeous. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t travel without your makeup kit by your side. Speaking from experience, your must-makeup kit should contain:
- skin-tone cream

- bronzer

- eyebrow gel

- mascara

- lipgloss/lipstick

- highlighter
And, that pretty much sums it up. There’s really no need to torture your skin with various makeup products – it’s too hot for that!

As for the hygiene kit, make sure you’ve got
- Coconut oil

- SPF 50 (or less, depending on your skin type) sunscreen

- Body spray

- Body cream

- Body wash

- Wet wipes (keep them close at all times; getting sweaty isn’t attractive in any form, really)
- Pads/tampons
- Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss
- Vaseline (perfect for sunburns, makeup foundation, body lotion and moisturizer replacement)
- Shaving supplies
- Hair products (nowhere without your hair conditioner!)

That would be it. It is time to forget about all the worries and have a sweet escape from your everyday life. Make it dreamy, exciting and fashionable!
