Here’s a little cheat sheet to print while you pack your carry-on.

MINI TRAVEL CAPSULE WARDROBE (FOR AN 18 DAY TRIP!)

Packing can be a nightmare for some. Packing light can be even scarier. I go home (Florida) for an extended time in December each year because I love nothing more than to be with family during the holidays. This year, I’ll be spending 18 days in sunny Florida!

Now, traveling during the holidays can be rough; so, in order to avoid as many pain points as possible at the airport, it is my goal to fit everything in a carry-on. This minimizes the lines I have to make and the people I have to interact with (hallelu!). I have already reduced my closet through the help of a capsule wardrobe so creating a mini travel capsule wardrobe doesn’t seem impossible. Below is a suggested wardrobe for an 18 day trip to Miami.

Packing Tips

  1. Pack things you love
  2. Pick a color scheme and stick to it.
  3. Limit the number of shoes (I recommend a max of 3).
  4. Stick to 1 handbag.

Mini Capsule Wardrobe Breakdown:

  • 7 tops (or 5-6 tops and 1 dress)
  • 4 bottoms (you can get away with just 3)
  • 3 shoes (think comfortable, casual, and night out)
  • 1 set of pajamas
  • Minimal jewelry/accessories (these don’t usually take up space, so feel free to add more)

HOW TO: PACK LIGHT

HOW TO: PACK LIGHT

I’m headed back home for a week – hooray! I like to pack ultra light whenever possible and it’s looking like that can happen this trip.

Believe it or not, the weather has been a little cooler than usual so I won’t be packing a swimsuit or shorts this time around. Plus, given the agenda (hanging out at the house with family and friends), I’m keeping it pretty straightforward this time around. Below is a packing light guide to Miami, FL.

My gal pals and I are so excited about our upcoming weekend getaway to New York. We all love New York! I mean, what’s not to love? There’s great food, music, fashion, museums, parks and people. Per usual, I’ve put a lengthy itinerary in place in hopes of enjoying every second of every day. Fingers crossed the weather holds up since we plan on being outdoors as much as possible.

TRAVEL OUTFIT - NY

Here’s what I plan to pack for NY … with a few extra things, of course. Cheers to packing light.

fedora, glasses, chambray shirt, plain tee, trench coat (similar), black skinny jeans, denim, slip ons, nude flats (similar)
