Hi Everyone! Today I have a different kind of post for you. I know many of you are going to be travelling around this time of the year, whether for work or Spring Break for the students out there, so this post is dedicated to travelling comfortably. When travelling, I like to keep my outfits simple and comfortable. For me, the key to my outfits is to keep it cotton so I can move easily and my skin can breathe easily underneath too. I chose this Striped Peplum Tank from Express because the peplum hides my tummy when I get bloated from sitting too long while still being stylish at the same time. I paired it off with Crewcuts Minnie Pants so I can easily move around and a white blazer from H&M in case I get cold. On my feet, I wore my Tory Burch Reva flats because I prefer wearing flats as compared to heels while on the road since they are so much more comfortable to walk in. This outfit is comfortable to travel in while looking put together at the same time.
Whether you have a business trip next week, or you're having a getaway this weekend, or the next, packing light makes travelling so much easier and enjoyable. Here I laid out the folded clothes that I will be packing into my bag for a little road trip this weekend. This would be the most common/regular way that most people would fold and pack. For me, I like to roll my clothes. I find that rolling your clothes up is easier, neater, more space savvy, and really prevents wrinkles from showing up on your packed clothes.
When rolling your clothes, I like to fold the article of clothing in half and roll from the neckline down for shirts/dresses and from the waistband down for pants/skirts. Usually, I like to place my jewelry on my shirts then begin to roll so my jewelry is protected.
When rolling your clothes, be sure to smoothen out the fabric as you roll. This is what prevents the wrinkles from appearing on your clothes.
Although I like to commute in flats when travelling, I will still pack a pair of heels just in case. When packing heels, or any pair of shoes really, I like to store them in a dust bag. This keeps the shoes protected and my clothes and bags from getting dirty.
As you can see, rolling your clothes allows you to pack them easier, either vertically or horizontally. For me, I like to put the shoes on the bottom so it acts like a base and shapes the bag.
Now you're ready to travel light and comfortably. If you're travelling this week, happy travelling!
