Summer Vacation Packing Tips with J.Crew

One of the most popular questions I get asked is about packing. What to pack? How much to pack? What are my top tips for packing?

I’m getting ready to pack up my bags for a weekend getaway to Hawaii next week {super duper excited about this trip!} and I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite brands, J.Crew, to share a few weekend getaway packing tips. You know how much I love J.Crew. I not only wear it all the time but it’s my favorite one stop shop for anything and everything that I must have for summer. I tend to dress in more monotoned hues, but I like to add pops of color and J.Crew does a really wonderful job in curating collections that have a little something for everyone.

Speaking of Hawaii, you could win a trip! Instagram your vacation must-haves with the hashtags #jcrewpacks #contest for a chance to win a four-night trip to Hawaii, a one-year Tablet Plus membership and a J.Crew shopping spree. Read more by clicking here!

Here are my vacation must haves with a few tips on how I like to pack.

The first place I tell people (i.e. women) to cut back in their luggage is the amount of shoes they pack. Ladies, we do not need a dozen pairs of shoes for a 4 day trip. You are officially allowed to bring 2 sets of shoes. One flat and one heel.

METALLIC LACE-UP SANDALS

I'm all about lace up sandals for summer. They feel more dressed up than walking around in an ordinary flip-flop and can be worn to the pool or dressed up for dinner.

"Made in the Shade" Tee

Rarely will you find me in a graphic tee but there are so many cute options at J.Crew right now that are vacation themed. This would be a great choice for that picture perfect Instagram for the #JCrewPacks contest.

My new goal for shorter trips is to always fit into my Paravel carry-on. Wear one pair of shoes on the flight and carry on your light jacket.

J.Crew

CROPPED COTTON JACKET

I'm always freezing, especially on flights. Always, always carry on your heaviest layer to save space in your bag. Camo jackets match well with basically everything.

Pick a beach tote that is really easy to fold into your luggage. If you do some shopping on your trip, this can serve as your carry on bag for the return flight.

Circle Straw Crossbody Bag

Speaking of bags, stuff your delicates and jewelry inside bags and clutches that you pack to save space.

I am really into pops of color this summer, especially in bags and earrings. It's the quickest and easiest way to mix up your vacation attire without having to pack multiple outfits. You can wear the same outfit all day with a tote bag and then switch up your hair, toss on some earrings and a colorful bag to completely transform the look for night.

J.Crew

VINTAGE COTTON CREWNECK T-SHIRT IN STRIPE

The number one thing you should always pack for summer trips is a striped tee. You can layer it under dresses, over swimsuits and it matches well with nearly everything.

When it comes to swimwear I try to pack things that can be matched up with a skirt or shorts. That way you don't have to waste one of your cute tops during the day and can save it for night time.

How adorable is this striped one piece. Toss on a white or denim skirt and you've got an entire outfit!
