Travel Days

by - March 04, 2017

If you are like me, then you love to travel! It doesn't matter where I go, I just love to be on the go. There are so many new places to explore in the world. So to me, that means I have a lot of places to go! If you think about it, there are tons of people in the world with lots of different cultures to learn from. Being able to watch and learn from others can really broaden the way you think.



"That feeling stuck with me and now I want to search farther than just my neighborhood, I want to see the whole world!"

I think my love of travel comes from two things. One is from back when I was a kid, I use to love when my brother and I would suit up and go explore the neighborhood. It didn't matter how many times we went out, I was always searching to find new things That "explorer" feeling stuck with me and now I want to search farther than just my neighborhood, I want to see the whole world! The other reason, is my dad. He used to work as a tractor trailer driver, so he traveled all the time. He used to tell my brother and I stories about all the places he had seen. It made him so happy that he got to see all those places. I decided I wanted that too, so I decided back then that I would see as many places as I could.

What I wear:

Since I like to travel, I decided to share one of my favorite travel looks with you.  I like to wear loose fitting tops most of the time or a tank top in the warmer months. I always carry a jacket with me in case it's chilly on the plane, train or at the airport. I usually go with a pair of leggings or stretchy jeans for my bottoms. That way I can bend and move around easily. On my feet, I wear sneakers, sandals, boots that are easy to slip on and off since each airport has different security rules and you never know when you will have to take your shoes off.


When it comes to packing, I generally stick to a carry-on and a personal bag for short trips. For the trips that require more clothes or last longer, I use my large suitcase and personal bag.


I generally like to think about what I am going to pack ahead of time because I don't want to waste space. I take into account the weather where I will be going, the events I will attend, and how long I will be there. After all that is determined, I pull out a bunch of clothes start to put together looks. 

Inside my personal bag:

I chose a big personal bag so that I can fit all of the "essentials". This is a peek at what I take with me, I always remember to take an extra pair of underwear and socks in there as well, because you never know if you will get separated from your main luggage. Trust me, I have been through the "lost luggage" struggle more than once. It's best to be prepared in case that happens.

Inside my suitcase:

Like I mentioned before, I use a carry-on size and a large size suitcase. Most of the time I reach for my carry-on just because its easier and you don't have to worry about checking anything at the airport. This is a sample of what I would pack for a 5-7 day trip. I take pieces that I can mix and match together with each other. That way I cut down on suitcase clutter. If you keep the items limited then it will also cut down on the weight as well. It is up to you what you decide to pack just make sure to try everything on before you pack it up. You don't want to get there and realize your outfit wasn't what you had expected or worse, that it doesn't fit. Playing around with different looks can be fun, so I say get in that closet and figure it out early.

Hopefully you enjoyed my little bit of travel advice, and that it helps some of you. Bon Voyage!
