3 Tips to Travel Light

Traveling anywhere, especially abroad, already comes with enough stress as it is. Starting this summer, I want to start traveling light. My goal is to really cut down on things I don’t need (or, things I think I need that I won’t even take out of my suitcase!) In the effort to take a more minimal approach to my travels, here are 3 tips to travel light:

1. Have a Bag that Can Do it All

No matter how much I prepare ahead of time (or think I have prepped beforehand), I have the tendency to get frazzled when I travel. Knowing where everything is (passport, wallet, boarding passes, keys, phone) helps to ease my mind so much. That’s why it’s so important for me to have a high quality, Italian-made designer bag that’s also very functional – and that’s where the Senreve’s Doctor bag comes in. I can wear it over the shoulder, on my arm, or as a cross body, so I can use it long after I leave the airport. The luxe interior has a lot of pockets to help keep everything organized, and the light-colored lining makes it really easy to find what I’m looking for. Plus, the cream color here is a neutral that goes with everything but is durable enough that it doesn’t get dirty. The bag is also light as a feather and fits everything you’ll need, plus its unique shape can be transformed- expanded to be a relaxed hexagon or packed in to look super sporty and sleek. Perfect for traveling.

2. Pack Smart

Dresses, dresses, dresses! Packing lightweight clothing that can easily roll up is a must for traveling light. Dresses are the ultimate travel companion because it’s an entire outfit in one! Plus, they look cute layered or by themselves and you can dress them up or dress them down. A total win-win.

3. Cut Down the Excess

If you’re like me, you probably want a different pair of sunglasses and shoes for each day you’re traveling. But when you really think about it, you only need one good pair of sunglasses, and maybe two to three pairs of shoes. If you’re traveling somewhere warm and sunny, a hat is a total must! Another thing I’m working on is simplifying my beauty routine, especially when it comes to my makeup. Multi-purpose and two-in-one products are life savers!
