Last minute vacation? Here’s what to pack

Friday, August 19, 2016

Going on a holiday is always exciting, but the packing process is a step everybody loathes. Stress levels can increase when you decide to take a last minute trip and have limited time to organize your packing list. When time is of the essence, the trick is to grab essential items that are versatile and can do double duty while you’re away. Besides the obvious toothbrush and sunscreen, here are some of our must-have travel items to get you through your trip.

Shield your eyes from the sun’s rays and look great doing it. Sunglasses are a trendy accessory that protect your eyes and allow you to skip the application of mascara during early morning travels. With lots of shape, color and size options available, you’re sure to find a pair that matches your personality. These Quay Australia rose gold sunglasses are a standout version.

Last minute getaways call for simple yet stylish outfits. Pack lightly by choosing versatile items that are appropriate for several different occasions. Perfect for a day-to-night transition, our v-neck sleeveless shell top can be worn with casual shorts under the sun or with an elegant black pair of pants and a blazer for a comfortable and put-together evening look.

It’s always a great idea to have comfy flats in your luggage no matter where your travels take you. Having a stylish pair on hand in a neutral color like black, beige or a metallic will match all of our outfits, and are less bulky to pack. Flats are perfect for all kinds of activities you might take part in during your trip, like going for an evening stroll, daytime touring or visiting friends.

A small, pretty pouch that works as a makeup bag and a clutch is our new favorite fashion hack. When packing for a last minute trip, utilize a chic small bag to its full potential by filling it with makeup products for travel, and then unpack it and use it as an evening purse for your nights out when you arrive at your destination.

 

Happy packing and bon voyage!
