Hello Fashion Forwarders!
As Summer is approaching and the air is getting warmer, we are all anxiously awaiting to dip our toes in the sand with a nice cold margarita (or beer) in hand. Though, it’s important to remember that it’s the little things that make a vacation great! Here, i’m sharing with you a few of my travel tips in hopes that you enjoy your next vacation just a little bit more!
Tip #1: Comfy Shoes
Yes, yes, yes, you saw it right, comfy shoes! Though you may be on the verge of packing your highest heels, it is extremely important to remember that comfort is key to a relaxing vacation. Even if sand gets in between your toes, that’s what the beach is all about! Save your high heels for the highlights and important events throughout your vacation and switch into your comfy flats during car rides and especially in the airport!
Another thing to remember is to pack shoes that can be accessorized and worn with multiple outfits. This will leave much more room in your suitcase for other outfits and shoes you might buy along the way of your vacation.
Tip #2: Travel Sized Products
No matter where I go on vacation, I always make sure to stop and buy a few travel sized beauty products the night before my departure. Some of these products include moisturizer, tinted lotion, face cream, shampoo, conditioner, and other mini-sized products.
The sun is no joke my friends! It is very important to take care of your skin and hair when exposing both to the sun. Don’t forget to make your midnight run to Walmart the night before your next vacay!
Tip #3: LWD
Three words: Little White Dress. Yes, white, NOT black. While I love the little black dress, I especially love the little white dress. There is something special about a white dress. I believe it brings out the natural glow and beauty in a face.
Personally, I would prefer a little white lace dress. I think lace provides the angelic yet sexual appeal that you can’t get with many other outfits.
Tip #4: Multiple Layers
It’s important to not over-pack but it’s also important to not under-pack. Whether you’re going to visit the cold Mt. McKinley or the hot islands of the Bahamas, layers are extremely important.
While your destination might be cold or warm, the airport is not set to your preferred body temp level. So it is important that you wear extra layers of clothing that can be easily put on or taken off no matter where your current location is. You need to be prepared for any climate coming your way!
Tip: #5: Bold Accessories
Bold accessories are sure to attract some stares. Statement necklaces and scarves can easily update your look and give it the right edge. Switch it up each night and interchange between necklaces, bracelets, and watches. Though, make sure to wear one bold piece at a time and don’t overdue it.
Personally, I prefer to take bold pieces that are of neutral tones. Since most of my outfits will already contain color, I like to contrast the color in my outfits with dark pieces of jewelry.
I hope my travel tips help make your vacation a little better and a little more organized. Share your traveling tips and pictures of your favorite vacation products in the comments!
