My top needed items?! A straw hat and/or a baseball cap to block some sun. Only a few pair of shoes but always a nude heel or wedge and neutral sandals. When I get a little extra sun sometimes I just squeak by with little makeup - mascara and blush are definites. A kendra scott rayne necklace (usually the white one), stud earrings and my monogram necklace are always packed in my accessory bag. A clutch for nights and a tote with a zipper is essential because I like my items protected and zipped up. My newest favorite for anywhere near water or a breeze is a headband to keep my hair out of my face.

I can't travel anywhere without a watch and if we're in a different time zone then I leave it on "home time" to try to stay on track. Sundresses, maxi dresses (especially for travel days!) and comfortable shorts/t-shirts/tank tops that can be mixed and matched are at the top of my clothing list as well as some cute pajamas - what if the fire alarm in the hotel goes off?! I always like to have sneakers (as well as a workout outfit) if it's going to be really long walking day (comfort over looking nice) and sometimes try to squeeze a couple workouts in. An extra makeup bag makes for the perfect item to hold little accessories like hair ties, my passport - with a cute cover and one of my favorite travel items - a backup portable phone charger. Last but not least - a camera because of course!

If I packed my own beach towel - it would definitely be something cute like above. A beach coverup that could transfer you right into happy hour is nice to have as well as some flip flops. Headphones or another one of our favorites - portable speakers are perfect for entertainment. Essentials like face wipes to freshen up, sunscreen to block the sun and lipgloss as well as plenty of magazines and books to read are high priority. Sunglasses because of course. A coin purse so I don't need to bring everything but still have some money for a snack and a water bottle to cool off.

I used to pack every comfort of home into my suitcase and now I prefer the less is more motto - I don't want to have a lot of unneeded items taking up space. I've learned to leave at home my own blow dryer, beach towel, extra shoes, and too many extra jewelry pieces.
