I often start packing with my shoes. I lay out all of the shoes I want to take and then plan outfits around them. I always try to pick a color palette and to stick with it, it helps me mix and match when living out of a suitcase. For our trip I plan to bring two pairs of sneakers, ones that can be dressed up and ones that are perfect for a ton of walking or working out. It's rare to find a neutral sneaker, so I snagged these as fast as I could. I scored my new workout sneakers during the Nordstrom sale and they are lightweight and super comfortable. I always bring a pair of Hunters too... just in case. Then a pair of comfortable sandals for dinners and nights out.
Coastal towns pose a challenge because of the way the weather changes from day to night. It requires double-packing. I tend to throw scarves and cardigans in my bag so that way I can transform any outfit and stay warm for the chilly nights.
I have fallen so in love with my current hair routine that I can't bear to be without the products and hair tools I'm currently using. I bought travel sizes of my shampoo, conditioner, treatment, and my hair dryer too.
