packing for 12 days of travel

The more I travel the more I figure out my "go-to" items to take with me. I realized that most trips I took I had more than I needed. So what are those items that not only mix and match well but also pack well? Here are a few that I consider must-haves for travel.

1. A Simple Dress. This dress matches any kind of sweater, jacket, sneakers or boots. A great dress thats easy to dress up and wear over and over.

2. A Fun Necklace. I love that this necklace has a little pop of color but still matches everything. It's a great way to add character to any outfit you pack.

3. A Colorful Scarf. This scarf is small enough to pack and can go with anything from a dress to jeans and a tshirt.

4. Striped Top. I am embarrased to say I have so many varieties of a striped shirt. Long sleave, short sleeve, red stripe, black stripe. They go with everything and always look chic.

5. Chambray. You may disagree but I think chambray goes with everything. It packs easily and can be worn over a maxi or can just be worn with jeans. Cute and comfortable.

6. Comfortable Shoes. I just ordered these shoes after reading tons of rave reviews. Hopefully they will be perfect for walking around all day and go with everything I am packing from cut off shorts to skinny jeans.

7. A Good Pair of Jeans. I love a dark pair of skinny jeans. Super flattering and can be easily dressed up or down.
