Packing For Vacation Does Not Need To Be A Chore

woman-packingPerhaps one of the only things better than the day that one leaves to embark upon a long-awaited and much-anticipated vacation is the week or so leading up to the vacation – the excitement of planning and getting ready for a trip that will happen in just days. That is right – packing for a vacation can actually be fun and help get you in the mood for the big event. You just need to have a game plan, and get organized so you do not become overwhelmed by the task at hand.

If you are lucky enough to be headed to a destination that includes a beach or a pool – a place where people customarily flaunt their bodies – you may feel nervous about what to pack. But, you can definitely find modest clothing that does not sacrifice on style or comfort – you just need to know where to look. Many online retailers, like DownEast Modest Clothing specialize in cute, modest clothing for modern women.

When you are packing, you should put pen to paper and make a list of the activities you plan to do on your vacation. Think about what you can envision yourself wearing during those activities, and then head to your closet and start choosing items. Don’t forget to plan for the unexpected, and pack at least two “emergency” outfits – a breezy dress, perhaps, or a cute top and pair of Capri pants. You never know when you might spill something on your outfit and will need to change. Since you may not have access to laundry facilities, be smart and pack a few extra back-up outfits.

Once you have laid out your outfits, head to your jewelry box and choose cute accessories. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, hats … select whatever you will need to complete your look and look great in all of those upcoming vacation photos. Don’t forget your hair accessories – clips, hair ties, and headbands are easy to forget when you are packing.

Finally, do not forget the footwear! Shoes will complete your look. In the interest of consolidated packing, try to choose two pairs of shoes that will pare well with the outfits you have selected and wear those the entire trip. Shoes are bulky and take up a lot of space in luggage, so try to minimize your shoe selection.

Rounding out the clothing packing, make sure not to forget pajamas, undergarments, a bathing suit, bathing suit cover up, and a light robe that you can throw on after your shower.

With a plan of action, you can pack quickly and efficiently and without forgetting anything. Once you have your clothes, shoes, and accessories taken care of you can turn to other items you may need – such as a good book to read as you lounge by the pool.
