Shop Smart magazine had a great packing tips article regarding how to pack light for a vacation. I take it a major step farther, as when I travel I only bring a carry-on suitcase. Yes, it is a challenge, but when your wardrobe is all coordinated, you would be able to as well.
Last month I was in South Beach Florida, staying at the gorgeous W Hotel, and managed to pack in my carry-on, 2 dressy & multiple casual outfits, along with pool attire. It can be done, and here is how I did it for a previous trip to a wonderful week away in sunny and hot Arizona a few years ago. I give and live the packing tips I suggest to my clients and readers.
I recently took 8 days off to travel with a great friend to stay in her beautiful, and thankfully air conditioned, Arizona home.
No major decisions to be made, other than trying to figure how to pack everything I need in 1 carry-on bag. So what did I take?
1 pair of shorts khaki
1 pair shorts black
1 dress black, off-white & brown print
1 pair white capri pants
1 top blue
1 top black
1 top blue/white print
1 pair sandals off-white
1 pair black sandals
1 pair sneakers
1 workout outfit
1 bathing suit
1 red handbag
So what jewelry could I take that would work with every outfit I put together? Well, that
was the easiest decision I had to make on this vacation.
I had purchased a wonderful coral & turquoise necklace, that complimented all my clothes and made me smile every day.
Find a necklace that goes with many of your outfits. If your wardrobe is customized to consist of only the colors and styles that are right for you, you will discover how well one or two pieces of jewelry will work with more outfits than you could ever have imagined.
