pack for a tropical climate
Depending on your destination, events and activities you will be participating in, naturally your clothing will have to be better suited, but if you are simply visiting for a leisure escape, you do not need to have your entire closet accompany you on your getaway.
Don't be THAT traveller who over packs and dresses to show off.
On a recent trip I packed only a carry-on for 9 days. I maintained by vision of knowing my schedule for the duration of the trip and taking into consideration the climate, I packed accordingly. Here is a list of a few of my favourite options to pack.
Cotton & linen are your friends. They are easy to wear and wash
Simple light tops, for both day and night
One pair of jeans (which I wear to travel)
3 interchangeable swimsuits
Basic accessories. Noise-free bangles, Fitbit, earrings to wear with everything
Basic makeup. Foundation, powder, mascara, eyebrow powder, lip liner/lipstick, lip balm
No hair products needed as my hair is short and natural, and leave-in conditioner works perfectly for my hair.
Ensemble for a formal/business affair
1 pair of flip flops, 1 pair of sandals, and 1 kitten heel shoe, plus the Keds I travel in (which works perfectly with all outfits for my outings during the day)
I have always been a simple classic style dresser. And while I'm fascinated by current trends and styles, I'm not always one to dress the way everyone else is dressing.
I love white, cotton, linen, flowing dresses or skirts etc. They are easy to wear and launder, not to mention easy to pack.
I love comfortable, light, and white clothing when in a tropical destination. Those red Zara boots are a staple for me, if I could find a pair in tan I'll be golden!!
How do you like to dress when you're travelling? Are you casual, unfussy, classy, comfort or uncomfortable fashion??
