Fashion Travel Essentials

Spring Travel Style

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

I love to travel! This year I've already been on a cruise, have trips booked for NYC and Philadelphia, as well as a weekend getaway to San Francisco in the works. But the only downfall of vacations is the packing, and repacking again and again. I'm always over packing for fear of leaving something behind that I may need. But it doesn't have to be that difficult. The key is to make a list of fashion travel essentials that are versatile.

Enter the Joules vacation shop. A British-based clothing site that provides affordable shipping and free customs charges, Joules has a bunch of adorable pieces. And the vacation shop is a great resource for your travel needs. Among my favorite items are my personal travel essentials for Spring/Summer.

1. Simple Dress: Pack a dress that doesn't wrinkle. You can wear it for a nice meal or a casual tour.
2. Lightweight Hat: If you're like me, you hate applying sunblock. You'll need a hat to shade your face.
3. Practical Shorts: Bring shorts that are the right length and won't ride up while walking around.
4. Comfortable Shoes: A lot of walking means sore feet. Prevent extra pain with practical shoes.
5. Basic Top: You may have to wear a top more than once, so pack a basic, comfy one to repurpose.
6. Go-To Swimsuit: Even if water isn't anticipated, have a suit that you feel confident in just in case.

What items do you have to pack when going on vacation?

Hats and dresses are my it items for Summer! Traveling, I think it's cooler in Ireland so I'll need to be packing a jacket and rain boots. So different than what I'm used to!

Ooh, I love that dress! All of it is so cute, actually. Jacob insists on a carry-on for Boston, which is only three days, but still. I have the hardest time packing! At least he gives me a little room in his suitcase. :)
