For those of you who know me, you know how much I love the minimalist clothing lifestyle. There are so many benefits to wardrobe minimalism. Not only does it save time and money, but minimalism also requires a graceful synthesis of creativity and discipline.
Over the past three weeks, I have had quite a number of individuals comment on the new addition to my minimalist accessories - my large MICHAEL Michael Kors Tote in luggage (luggage is actually the name of the color).
Before I begin, I must say that this bag was a very generous gift from my Best Friend! She totally surprised me with this bag on the day before her wedding! What a sweet & loving GEM! I swear I had been dreaming about this bag! She just knows me so well <3
MICHAEL Michael Kors Tote: Jet Set Travel Large East/West in Luggage
Currently, this exact bag is retailing for $278 at Bloomingdales. My friend informed me that the most strategic time to purchase would be on Cyber Monday - when deals are at their lowest for the most part. The outside is just the start - check out the inside!
Let's face it, deciding what clothes to pack for vacation is not easy. On one hand, no one likes overpacking and toting a bunch of heavy luggage through the airport. On the other hand, no one likes limiting their wardrobe and leaving out items they love to wear.
What if I told you that you don't have to choose? That there is a way to pack lightly AND pack clothes that you absolutely love?!
WELL IT'S TRUE! For a full two week stay in Trinidad and Tobago, I packed one carry-on item and one personal item. Keep reading and I will teach you exactly how I did it!
I have more of a classic style. I love wearing neutral tones (black, white, beige, denim and grey) with gold accent jewelry. Before my trip to Trinidad & Tobago, I was convinced that packing lightly meant compromising my personal style - but it doesn't mean that at all!
Before my trip, I decided to be very intentional about packing lightly and bringing outfits that were both comfortable and true to my personal style. I tried not to overcomplicate the situation by sifting through every piece of clothing I owned. Instead, I broke the process down into four simple steps!
