Whether it's is a road trip to a few towns over, to visit friends and family or a full blown family vacation to locations far and wide - packing is a snap with these family vacation packing tips. I like to go for a neutral palette or to choose two or three colors to base the packing list from. This makes mixing and matching these versatile pieces a snap - that way you don't have to carry your entire closet across the country. I try to pack as lightly as possible and so I try to get creative with how I pair pieces throughout the vacation. Having simple pieces makes this process a whole lot easier.
Here I suggest some grey, black and denim pieces as the foundation of the outfits. Then I add in a little camo (how amazing is this jacket?) and a fun pattern (in the scarf) and a little color (in the striped top) to keep the looks interesting. I like to have a few dresses on hand that can be dressed up or down - or even thrown over a swimsuit. In addition I always find a jacket and jeans to be perfect for cool evenings or mornings and sneakers and a large tote necessary for daytime activities. Minimal jewelry like a necklace and a bracelet are great to dress up any look as needed and can be packed easier than a ton of extra baubles.
