Dress- ONLY, Earrings & cuff- Atelier Mon, Clutch- Dvf, Shoes- River Island, On my lips- Lady Danger by Mac
Not very long ago, I was the girl who would struggle with 3 suitcases, dragging them around the airport because she had to carry everything and more for this long awaited holiday! Not only is packing all those things a tedious task, the fact is that, no one needs that many things for a holiday that will last only a week and I learnt this the hard way. However, now I follow a simple pattern while packing, which not only resolves my luggage issues but also helps me get dressed faster. I start by packing any 3 or 4 pairs of bottoms including skirts, jeans and shorts. I also make sure to carry a pair of well fitted jeans that can be worn casually during the day and be dressed up for the evenings. I also make sure to pack a basic white or black tee, a embellished tank for that fancier dinner, a fun moto jacket & a printed top. I then throw in 3 dresses, an evening/dinner dress, a sun dress for the day and the good old flowy maxi that is probably the most versatile item and the most Instagram friendly too! A simple clutch, few accessories & a vest can help you accessorize and style all these pieces in numerous ways. This particular look is aimed to suit a romantic dinner date. Not only is it the most comfortable dress, it also gives you the leeway to enjoy that dessert! A maxi like this is also ideal for a day at the beach and can then be easily transformed into a night look with statement jewellery, heels and a clutch. What are your must haves while packing light for travel?
