Happy Saturday from Nashville! How was your week? Spending quality time with my girlfriends from college was just what I needed. We pick up right where we left off and a break from the norm is always good for the soul. There is no shortage of laughter and smiling. Not to mention, I am in love with this city. I can’t wait to recap everything for you. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share what was on my packing list. It includes some of my favorite pieces and they all travel well.
This is what I took for four days. And yes, it all fit in my suitcase! I will share on stories the packing tips my dad taught me years ago. I recently taught my son and he packed himself to travel home from Michigan. Dad, your wisdom continues to be passed along.
Comfy flats are key for walking around town. If I were to go with sneakers I would pick these. I decided to keep it simple and only bring two pairs of flats. The leopard and the blush are both pretty neutral and work well with leggings and jeans. For going out at night I brought one pair of booties and one pair of heels. The patent leather heels immediately dresses up any outfit. Plus they are lightweight and so easy to pack.
NIGHT TIME LOOK
This transitions well from day to night just by switching out the flats for heels and grabbing a clutch.
FOR THE AIRPORT
Most of the pieces I brought all work together. The spanx are my number one favorite for traveling. So cozy and warm. The moto leggings are great for the airplane or during the day and quickly take on a sassy vibe with booties or heels at night. Toss on a blazer or a leather jacket and you’re good to go.
The beanie is great for hair that isn’t cooperating or just to keep warm. Mine is from last season but I rounded up a few more good options.
This pink blazer is a recent addition to my wardrobe and I love it. It is a heavier weight than most blazers so it serves as a light coat, too. It’s nice and long and looks so cute with leggings. Plus the color is just fun. The gray t-shirt is a steal and crazy soft. I love that it has a v in the front and the back. A great layering piece while traveling. The blazer also looks darling over this tank (on sale) for another going out look.
SHOP THESE FINDS
The floral tank is currently on sale. Definitely one of my favorites. Looks great alone or under a blazer or denim jacket.
I’ve been using these products for years. I finally have the trial kit which serves as my travel set. Gone are the days of trying to transfer my favorite products into travel containers. The radiant cleansing balm is my favorite make-up remover.
