Up until my mid-20s, I used to hate traveling for vacation. It was just an absolute headache and that was back when I didn’t have to be responsible for any of the financing. However, I eventually learned to not only like traveling, but love it. I was able to do this my simplifying as many elements of traveling as possible, starting with creating a guide to packing for vacation.
When I pack for vacation, I start by being realistic of what I’m going to need. I loathe over-packing. Not only are your carrying around waste, but depending on if you’re flying, it can cost you a lot of money. So, I’ve become very conscious of what I really need to bring when on vacation. Not to mention, bringing too many options will leave room for you to overthink. Who wants to overthink anything on vacation, let alone which color shorts to wear? Not me. Minus the basic denim shorts and basic tees, here’s what I include in my guide to packing for vacation.
This past weekend, I came to the realization that Memphis isn’t getting a Spring this year. Having to deal with 90+ degrees weather in the middle of May is ridiculous. So, to help soothe this depressing understand, I decide to start planning my summer wardrobe.
Keep reading to see what three items are I’m wanting to add to my summer wardrobe this year.
Please feel free to judge me, but I’m so here for sporty sandals this spring. I had a pair my freshman year of college that I ordered from JC Penney and I wore them all the time. A sandal with the sole of a sneaker combined with the straps of a casual sandal was my vibe. Needless to say, when I started seeing these throwback styles reappear, I’m ready.
Hopefully, the style will catch on so some of the “fast fashion” spots will produce cute and cheaper options. In the meantime, please view and ponder some options that are currently available.
You might recall that one of the items I was lusting after this month was a pair of Doc Martens in black patent leather. Well, I had some gift certificates begging to get used and decided to treat myself. Although I got them a couple of weeks ago, the multiple snow days wouldn’t allow me to wear them. However, now that the sun is back, I decided it was time to break in my shiny Doc Martens boots.
After wearing them for 12 hours straight, I decided that I would share my review and how I was able to break in my new boots. You know what to do; keep reading!
Last summer, I scored a cream peplum top covered in gold stars, which is one of my favorite tops. Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with anything emblazoned with stars. Not to mention, there are a lot of star covered items out there. Starry styles are whimsical, my new favorite print, and I need more. One of the good things about all over prints like this is that you can keep everything else minimal. However, you can also go star crazy and I won’t judge.
Since my only star covered item is a thin peplum top, think I should I should get a warmer item that I can wear in the colder months. I found a lot of cute star covered items and even though I want them all, I cant’. However, if you think a star covered anything should be in your life and closet, keep reading.
