Happy Friday! It is so crazy to think that this time next week I will be in Cuba! My goal this year is to get 2 passport stamps so I will be halfway there soon. It has been a dream of mine to go to Cuba for so long, so I can’t believe it is finally happening. Since we won’t really have a lot of internet access and our phone and credit cards won’t work, I have been prepping for this trip like crazy! I’m normally a last minute traveler, but that obviously won’t fly in Cuba!
When I travel, I try to bring pieces in the same color family so I can mix and match everything in my suitcase. It really helps me pack lighter. I also try not to spend too much, so everything above is under $100 (except the shoes). Since it is going to be hot, I’m all about light layers and dresses that go from walking around town to dinner with a quick change of accessories. I picked up this black off the shoulder dress from Old Navy on a whim, but love how flattering it is, especially if you add a belt to define your waist.
I’m also packing this white popover top and would love to get this cactus top. Both will be perfect with a pair of white jeans! Finally, I can’t forget my accessories. They are such an easy way to add a pop of color to a basic outfit. I’ve been wearing these earrings non-stop and will be bringing them with me and I’m debating about getting these ahead of my trip.
Last, but not least, I never leave home without this travel steamer. It is so portable and come with a travel bag. I even use it at home. I will never iron again!
Have you guys had any fun travel recently or coming up? I’d love to hear about them and maybe add some places to my list.
