Tip #1: Make a list. Without one it's easy to forget essentials. Don't forget to include electronics like phone, iPad and chargers. Not to mention, make-up, jewelry and pretty underpinnings.
Tip #2: Think in layers. Be sure to pack versatile items that can be worn many different ways. Check out our layering tips here.
Tip #3: Bring beauty samples. Sample size beauty products and travel-sized toiletries are perfect for long weekends and overnight stays. Grab some free swag from your local department store makeup counters. They're won't cost you a dime and you can dispose of them before you pack for your return home. We are especially loving these.
Tip #4: Accessorize. This is a great way to mix up your wardrobe and statement jewelry is an easy way to take your outfit from day-to-night. Not to mention, it wouldn't be the holidays without a little bling. Don't forget your sunglasses too. I've already packed these.
Tip #5: Have a go-to travel outfit. Choose one outfit to wear to and from your destination to save precious packing space in your bag. A pair of leggings, cozy sweater (and/or blazer), boots and scarf combo is a great go-to.
Safe and happy travels to you and yours!
