The theme for my vacation wardrobe is black and pink with polka dots. I wanted all of my clothes to fit into my carry-on, so I carefully planned my outfits and packed only what was necessary. Sticking to a theme ensures that all your clothes match and nothing is superfluous.
My final pack was one dress, three shirts, and one pair of shorts, plus an extra set of pajamas, one pair of shoes, and the clothes I wore on the flight (long hoodie over shirt and jeans with my Nikes). Everything fit perfectly into my carry-on! We still checked in a luggage for shopping though.
Here’s one of the nicer outfits I packed for shopping at the Strip. Got a lot of use out of my Adidas shoes which I’ve had for a long time but never use much… because I don’t want them to get dirty. I like to give them a quick brush after each wear which can be laborious. They only look nice when they’re clean.
- Justfab polka dot wrap dress
- Adidas Superstar shoes
- Kenox backpack
- Aeropostale pink floral watch
- Pink triangle necklace purchased at a sidewalk stall
Mike likes to joke that I paid money for broken jeans, which… yeah I did. I like the look. Ripped jeans take me back to the 90s when my young mom and her young siblings rocked them all, and my grandmother was not here for that. My eldest uncle (now in his 50s, still looks 30!) served white shirt with ripped jeans flawlessly. Blessed to be in this family. :’)
Here’s a closer picture of my pink accessories! I put on my rubber bunny case to protect my phone since I tend to drop it while traveling. Turns out it didn’t fall once while I was away. Of course, the moment I switch back to my floral snap-on case, I drop it…
