I can pack for that. The Hamptons Edition

My dears the season of travel is upon us and I could not be more excited. Summer travel holds the best memories for me and I always love brainstorming new adventures for my friends and I, as we road trip around the States. The biggest problem when it comes to vacationing, is the packing. How do you pack just enough so you can change outfits and be prepared for anything...and not drag your whole house with you? Well darlings after watching Something Borrowed this weekend, I was motivated by The Hamptons montage to create a Hamptons DIY packing lesson!

1. Preppy Classic - pastels and little whales printed on fabric encouraged
2. Pack only one beach towel and one bathing suit
3. Have one pair of shoes for day and one for night...and then some flip flops for the beach
4. Adhere to one color palette to maximize outfit options
5. Always bring a pashmina, beaches can get chilly from the wind
6. Pick a purse that can double agent as a beach tote...AND a makeup bag that is also a clutch!

Great tips! I like to think that I'm pretty good when it comes to packing light, but you have come up with some ideas that would help me out even more! Hopefully I can plan a trip soon so I can put these new packing ideas to use!

I love this! I'm definitely going to try this next time I travel. I always end up with like 3-4 different pursed and 5 different pairs of shoes and a suitcase on the verge of exploding :)

Love the shades of pink and other girlie pastels in this selection, very spring and preppy :)
