Summer Packing Tips

I have been so lucky to have traveled so much this spring- from Florida to New York to Georgia to Virginia and now this week to Savannah and Charleston! One thing about all the travel is I have certainly gotten better at packing! I can't tell y'all the things I forget to bring with me- always seems like I forget at least one thing a trip!

Besides my occasional packing forgetfulness, I've decided to put together some packing tips for y'all in case you're heading somewhere fun this summer!


Plan your outfits by day
First, make a list of what you will be doing each day (Monday- beach, Tuesday- shopping then dinner...) so you know what you need to pack. Then, assign outfits to each event (dress for brunch, a bikini for the pool, etc.). I am a chronic overpacker so this definitely helps to limit how much stuff you're actually bringing with you!

Put your shoes in dust bags
I have a bunch of Tory Burch dust bags for shoes so those are my go-to for packing! This way your shoes don't get your clothes dirty or smelly!

Always bring a few plastic baggies
You never know when you'll need them! I typically put my lotion, hairspray, shampoo, etc. in a plastic bag so they don't spill all over my luggage!

Pack a "to pack list"- so you don't forget anything!
As mentioned before, I always forget something (a few weeks ago, it was my curling iron that I needed for the next day!) so this helps to prevent that! If you plan your outfits by day, that makes this step so much easier!

Choose a color palette
If you choose a few colors to stick to (i.e. blue, pink, and white), it makes things so much easier when packing shoes and jewelry as the shoes and jewelry you pack will match so better!

Bring an appropriate amount of jewelry
I'm always guilty of bringing a ton of jewelry and then wearing the same 5 pieces that I wear on a day-to-day basis. Be honest with yourself while packing- "am I really going to wear this?" is a good question to ask yourself!


What are some of your favorite packing tips? Are you traveling anywhere this summer? Let me know in the comments!
