What to pack for a Tropical Getaway

Keeping your Getaway style fuss free and comfortable yet stylish while vacationing takes significant planning. After all you want to look blissed out and resort chic in all those Instagram updates! Below are my top 3 multitasking basics that can take the pain out of outfit planning for your next vacation:

The Multitasking Essentials:
1) The Jersey Maxi Dress - A multitasking superstar,  can be worn on a chilly flight with a cardi, with a fedora for sightseeing and with a statement cuff or necklace for dinner and it doesn't end here, it also doubles as a swimsuit cover up. Jersey maxi dresses also roll up easy, don't crease much and take very little space in your suitcase! I recommend  packing 2 one in a basic tone like navy or black and one in vibrant print like a tile or floral pattern or something reminiscent of Palm Springs (read Trina Turk or Lilly Pulitzer) or colors like Turquoise or Magenta.

2) The Denim Cut-offs - Another multitasker, can work with a basic tank for a warm day full of exploring, or a  boyfriend blazer for drinks and dinner, looks super stylish as a cover-up again! I recommend one either in a basic blue wash or a crisp white. Levis and Zara make great versions of this classic.

3) The Embroidered Ivory Boho Blouse - My favorite in the list! Vacations are the best time to unleash your inner flower child, Pack one of these lovelies and you can wear this blouse over your cutoffs or belted over the maxi dress. Take things to the next level by getting creative with a vibrant headscarf or headband or the local flower of your destination tucked loosely behind your ear. The styling options are endless and its oh so flattering on all body types.

Hopefully this makes the decision making easier on what to pack and what to leave as you pack up for your next beachy getaway! Summer travel season is on us and its time to find your beach. Wheels up and Chic Travels to you!
