On Traveling…Keep Calm & Carry On ✈️

 

‘Travel changes you. As you move through this life and the world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life and travel leaves marks on you.”   -Anthony Bordain

 

Bonjour!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life has become less hectic since  moving to the Oregon coast…

 

 

I have worked hard to keep things simple…

 

 

more minimal…

 

 

and yet still fun. Pleasure

 

 

This is especially true for my wardrobe

 

 

 

That being said packing for a trip…

 

 

can s.t.i.l.l. be a bit challenging.

 

 

Fortunately with a lifestyle that has become lighter…

 

 

it is now easier for me to pack for travel…less baggage

 

 

planning exactly what to take…

 

 

in order to accommodate…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

all the various things…

 

 

 

 

I might be doing and having pieces that transition well.

 

 

Packing for chillier weather can be a little tricky too…

 

 

so I make sure to pack clothes that can easily be layered.

 

 

Here are a few simple tips that I keep in mind for traveling.

 

 

1. Plan ahead…Before heading anywhere I will usually take the time to sit and think about the trip. What I’ll be doing charting some notes down so I get a better idea of what to pack. I often check the forecast so that I can pack accordingly.

 

 

2. Make a packing list… I usually begin early doing this… thinking about how many days and nights I’ll be gone and then I start my packing process. Things that I know I will need for the trip…how many days or even weeks in advance before the actual trip.

 

 

That way, if I need to purchase something I have enough time to do so!

 

 

3.  Lay it all out… I like to try it all on. I actually enjoy trying different outfits on and making sure that they transition nicely together. Jeans, black pants, several tops, a sweater, skirt/dress that I plan on strategically wearing together.

and…

 

 

once everything is packed…

 

 

4. Decide what to wear on a plane

Air travel is exciting, but it can also be incredibly uncomfortable. For this reason, comfort is my primary concern. I enjoy wearing jean leggings…they have just the right amount of  stretch…comfort and style. I layer either a tunic…vest…or cardigan…comfy flats and bag which holds a loose fitting scarf, and other easily accessible items I might need.
