Ahh, the love of traveling. With exploring, dining, adventuring, and new things to look forward to, we all have experienced the dreadful process of packing. It can be easy to go overboard with packing, especially when you’re not prepared. Packing is an art– so stay focused, pack smart, and take the time to plan. Here is our ultimate packing checklist for you to print out or refer to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
Though it is obvious to bring your personal hygiene items, try looking for multi-use items to save you the time, space and trouble. There are lots of 2-in-1 products like moisturizers and SPF and shampoo and conditioner. There are many creative ways to pack smart for toiletries especially for travel bottles and containers that are already lounging around your home.
Once you’ve done your research on weather conditions, you can pack accordingly. Packing your basic clothing essentials make mixing and matching outfits a breeze, especially when on a tight schedule like a weekend getaway. Your basic items should consist of:
A pair of jeans
A pair of shorts and/or pants
Socks and belt
T-shirts and/or tank tops
Dresses and/or rompers (easy to dress up and down)
A light hoodie and/or long sleeve (depending on weather)
Sleepwear and underwear/garments (shapewear can also be used as underwear)
Depending on your destination, you might want to consider what you will be doing in the meantime while you’re there. Going to a beach destination? Don’t forget your swimwear. Going on a nature trip? Maybe bringing a jacket or active clothes might be best.
Although it’s important to bring your shirts and dresses, it’s just as important to bring your lingerie and especially, your shapewear. Not only would you want support and comfort throughout your travels, but you also want to feel confident and look stunning in what you wear!
The rule of packing footwear is no more than 3 pairs. Plus, you’re already wearing a pair on your feet while traveling. Depending on your activities and functions, plan according. If there’s a fancy dinner taking place, bring along a pair of dress shoes or heels. If you’re doing a lot of sightseeing or walking, try opting for a comfortable pair of tennis shoes. Always dress for the appropriate occasion.
This one’s important for keeping in contact, documenting, or simply for personal preference. Make sure to remember all electronic devices accessories you’ll be bringing along, usually in your carry-on, like their chargers, adaptors, memory cards, headphones, etc.
