I love to travel. Sightseeing is one of my favorite things to do, but one thing that I find troubling is how to do it all in style! (Read about why it’s so important to fly fashionably here.)
I don’t like to check any bags unless I’m traveling for more than a week. It’s just not worth the risk and hassle of possibly losing my luggage and it’s precious cargo. Due to the TSA’s strict policies, my packing is usually confined to a suitcase, roughly around the size of a very fluffy pillow, and a backpack or large tote bag. I also usually sneak a purse, buying me a couple of extra cubic inches.
In addition to my makeup, jewelry, hair tools and brushes, undergarments, magazines and toiletries, I also have to somehow pack a wardrobe, and make sure it’s comfortable enough to sightsee in.
If I know I will be walking a lot on a trip, I only bring flat shoes (duh.) I also like to stick to basic pieces that are bold enough to make a statement. I keep accessories simple (especially in foreign countries. The only thing worse than being an obvious tourist is being an obvious tourist with expensive things to steal.) Don’t make yourself a target. It’s also smart to wear a watch when you’re traveling. Here are 20 items I used to create a week and two days worth of travelable outfits!
I stick to pants when I’m traveling. Skirts and dresses are too annoying to deal with. If it’s a breezy day, you don’t want to worry about holding your skirt down while you should be taking in your surroundings.It’s smart to bring a light jacket that will go with almost anything. I also almost always travel with a scarf. They are very versatile, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the climate where you will be.
