Packing light: The travel guide

Do you find it difficult to pack light or right ?

When it comes to travelling you can’t always guarantee the weather is going to be on your side, so it’s always a good idea to pack the essentials and expect the unexpected.

By adding a few basics to your mobile wardrobe and some funky accessories you will be set to be practically dressed from day to night, casual to classy without having to bring every clothing item you own with you. We need to make room for shopping too ofcourse 😉

Lets get started!

These are the essential items I always take with me. The pictures provided are my top picks from the EziBuy website, rellevant to the item listed.

Cardi

Cardigans are great as lighter layers on those cooler days and nights. Their simplicity makes them incredibly versatile.

Jumper/Jacket

Extra warmth or wind protection. A jumper or a jacket is a must! You should always have at least one just incase.

Dresses

My favourtie item! Patterns are great to add some excitement or flare to your outfit. Or even simpler, plain colours are ideal as they can be enhanced with the right accessories.

Shoes

Every womans must haves! I don’t know about you but I LOVE my shoes. There’s probably more shoes than clothes in my wardrobe if i’m honest and that is why selecting them can be difficult. Choose 4-5 different pairs that should include 3x casual = sneakers/slip ons, jandals/sandals and boots, 1x casual heel and 1x dressy heel. That should have you covered for every activity or occasion you plan on attending during your travel.
