Planning your vacation outfits can be one of the most thrilling aspects of your trip.

Create A Mood Board
If you haven’t done it before, you are missing so much. This super fun step can make your life easier. Think of everything from the color palette (do you want it to be bright, saturated, or faded and dreamy?), to the styles and fabrics.
You don’t have to follow this vision literally, but having an overall vibe can really help you stay focused when picking pieces.
We all dream of unlimited luggage space. But let’s get back to reality, when it comes to preparing for your vacation, things can get crazy very quickly and you can easily fall into the trap of overpacking. Don’t panic, you can always wear all your colorful outfits at home. On a vacation, two neutral colors and one accent along with all-black or all-brown shoes, bags, and belts should be enough. Take less so you have less to choose from thus be present at the moment and maybe give yourself a chance to get creative with only what you have.
Be flexible. When embarking on a trip to an unfamiliar destination it’s essential to consider the local weather, planned activities, and cultural practices to strike a balance between familiarity and novelty in your attire. The rule of thumb is to pack two-thirds of your suitcase with clothing that you would normally wear in your everyday life while leaving the remaining space for special vacation outfits. Additionally, don’t forget to prioritize comfort by bringing along a pair of ultra-comfy shoes.
Yes, we advised you to narrow down your suitcase to stay present at the moment and save yourself time, effort, and maybe some space for on-location shopping… But you know what? If you have a statement piece that makes you feel so special, just take it even if doesn’t fit into your color palette. Go for anything that will make you live the best vacation experience.
