Travel Minimalism-Chic



Miranda Kerr Shares Beach Vacation Images on Instagram


In the depths of Summer heat we all idealize and dream of the sweet escape.  When it finally comes we over-pack, over-impulse buy and weigh ourselves down until check-in.




Beachy






To avoid such Summer sins, follow this list and whisk off to your most deserved retreat.


Boarding trains, planes, and automobiles my go-to travel staple is an infinity scarf, particularly from American Apparel wear it over the neck as a simple layer, wrap around once for a hood and comfy place to rest your head.

Slip ons, a shoe easy to slip on and off at security and for the abundance of walking one always undermines when packing





 

Although I have made light of my mother's rule to place everything in plastic bags within your bag, you are indeed guaranteed the cleanliness of your bags interior from dirt sand and protection from unsuspecting pick-pocketers. 



 Designate small travel cases to certain things.  I always use a small case for electronic charging cords, one for my medications, and one for travel size cosmetics to use while enroute.  

Go-to cosmetics during travel, essentials




A little mascara, travel-size dry shampoo and coconut oil will give you a clean/ fresh look. 






















Prepared is key. Travel size anti-bacterials, and wipes will save you from spills, and touching the masses of rails etc.













Versatility a second key to efficiency in packing. 
 Clean  simple lines make for easy mix and matching.

A pair of flip flops for easy access and the hotel room come in handy more than you think.





A chic cover up is essential to any beach or summer getaway.  From the beach with a cocktail in hand to evening with a tank dress underneath and belt this allows light travel.
