Every Christmas, my hubby and I make a list of possible vacation spots and then pick one at random. This year we wanted to stay state side so, I chose three cities and he chose three cities, I numbered them randomly, and then he chose a number. The lucky winner is Nashville! Usually, we’ve got our vacation booked and ready but this year we’ve got a few other things we need squared away before we feel comfortable vacationing for a week. I, however, am totally excited to visit Nashville and experience all it has to offer. With this vacation approaching in the coming months, I’ve decided to create the ultimate city style vacation guide!
For me, Nordstrom is a one-stop shop. They have everything from clothes to beauty essentials to tech accessories and at all price points. Usually, we end up doing something tropical but I am excited to try something different this year. When I think a city vacation I think comfortable, light layers, in conjunction with tennis or flat sandals for lots of walking around and enjoying the sites.
All really simple items that can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate fuss-less, perfect on-the-go, outfit. The aviators are a great neutral and a comfortable pair of jeans or shorts can be thrown under just about anything. If you have a fancier day or just like a little bit of variety, toss a dress or jumpsuit into your suitcase.
I feel like you could get away with packing one pair of tennis + one pair of sandals and be set for any trip. If you’re like me, maybe throw a pair of flats in for good measure and call it done.
Just a few items that you never want to be caught without when you’re away from home. I always love to travel with a rollerball or a miniature perfume and sunscreen is another obvious choice to keep on hand. I like the sticks because they’re much easier to travel on a plane with and they’re small enough to toss in your purse, even a crossbody bag.
When you’re out and about a small crossbody bag is super easy. It doesn’t get in the way or weigh down your forearm. Backpacks are really on trend right now too, so if it’s your style, throw on a backpack with some cute tassel adornments!
All of the Snapchat addicts out there can appreciate the extra chargers. Even more important than Snapchat, taking photos of your family adventures or even looking up places to eat, it’s always nice to have a little extra power when you need it. And, well, the iPad case is just cute and I always bring my iPad anytime I travel on a plane.
Where are you vacationing this year and what are your go-to essentials when packing?
Also, Nordstrom‘s half yearly sale is going on right now, meaning you can save up to 40% off now-June 5th! Just sayin’…
Thanks so much for reading!
