By Haili ZPacking for spring break isn't always as glamorous as the destination. Here is packing made easy for your spring getaway.
Rolling is always better than folding; it is better for your apparel, too, keeping everything compact.
For apparel, instead of packing several outfits, pack a few items. Solids can always be switched out and dresses always do the trick. When you pack dresses you've got several outfits.
Why? Because accessories always change up the look - make sure your accessories are coming along for the ride.
As for shoes, take two or three pairs of shoes - two for dressing up in case of a nice dinner or a night out on the town, and one for climbing, hiking and for the all-day walks.
Wherever you're going this spring, check for weather conditions during your travel. You may need to include boots or, in case of rain, don't pack authentic leather or suede shoes.
What to pack
Mark and Estel have amazing light dresses that feel and look great for the spring.
Wedges paired with their dresses feel effortless but look amazing on every body type. Their line includes more than 20 colors to choose from. You may find them online or at High Fashion Home in Houston.
For items that are readily available in your wardrobe, check your closet for bold prints, patterns or bold colors. All are in this season.
For instance, if you have a bold red, orange, yellow or blue shirt, pull it out and pair it with your favorite denim.
If jet setting this spring break, BCBG Max Azria has an amazing purchase online that can be shipped to your home. It is the "Dreamie Mask, and Slipper Set" available now - and on sale at BCBG.
This is a travel must.
