I’m again with a packing roundup! We took every week off for a mini getaway to Key West. It’s been 5 years since we’ve visited and this journey we took my in-laws with us. We took the Key West Specific from Fort Meyers this time. General it was loopy sizzling and humid throughout our time however we nonetheless had numerous enjoyable! It was a calming journey, we did numerous strolling.
A fast take a look at the resort we stayed at. Andrew and I booked a 2 bed room cottage at The Capitana Key West. It’s one of many newer resorts and we actually favored it! Tremendous clear, good trendy design, each day housekeeping, cute pool and lounge space. It’s 2 miles exterior of downtown so you’ll undoubtedly want a automobile or golf cart of some type because it’s too sizzling to stroll that far. Right here’s a fast look. If you wish to see the within, I did a mini room tour on Instagram I’ll put up under.
For packing Andrew and I packed up 3 Away Bigger Carry-Ons (there was a dimension restrict for baggage on the ferry). I nonetheless actually love these suitcases and extremely suggest them. The Bigger Carry-On is the proper dimension to pack necessities for an prolonged weekend getaway. I additionally actually love their Packing Cubes – each Andrew and I take advantage of these. For longer journeys now we have and just like the Medium Suitcase. Their Equipment choice is fairly good lately too! I purchased Andrew the Large Toiletry Case and he approves of the design, materials and high quality!
What I packed under (every merchandise is clickable to take you straight to buy the merchandise):
I didn’t handle to get images of each outfit I wore however listed below are just a few snapshots.
I’ve by no means obtained so many questions as I’ve about sneakers! Listed here are the highlights on sizing and luxury:
Tory Burch Double T Sport Slide is one among most comfy sandals I’ve tried. I’ve owned this pair for a pair years now (additionally seen right here and right here). They’ve held up rather well despite the fact that I’m not essentially the most cautious with my ft. Whereas it doesn’t have arch assist there’s a cushion within the sole which makes them actually comfy on the ft. They run true to dimension (I’m a 6.5 in most sandals). Consolation is 10 out of 10.
Ancient Greek Sandals Eleftheria Sandal are a current splurge and I really like the minimalist look. They’re very sturdy and I like that they keep on the ft. The straps aren’t adjustable so it was pure luck that they match me completely. I want the straps have been adjustable although – it looks like having an ideal match isn’t at all times going to occur since everybody has totally different widths for ft, ankles, toes and many others. Consolation is 8.5 out of 10 for me. These are available in entire sizes and the Dimension 7 works completely for me.
Chloe Woody Slide Sandals are ones I believe are tremendous cute, however consolation is a degree 7 out of 10 for me. They’re not painful however they’re additionally not ones I need to stroll round all day in. These are available in entire sizes solely and I put on these in a 37.
Veja Venturi Sneakers are cute for that chunky sneaker development and I discover them very comfy. They’re very comfy to stroll in round all day. Sizing critiques appear to be blended (it could depend upon coloration). For these I put on them in a US 6/ EUR37.fendi
Fendi Feel Slides have been a splurge and I really like them. They’re very comfy and I had no points (no break in interval). There’s a slight arch assist inside and the only has some beveled edges to hug the ft (so there’s no sliding round inside). Even with sweaty ft they stayed on. Sizing is large and large. I’ve narrowish ft so I took these in a Dimension 36. I might have in all probability gone right down to a 35.5 however the 36 could be very comfy. I might suggest going a 1/2 down out of your common dimension or purchase from a retailer that has a very good return coverage.
For magnificence packing I packed up merchandise in 2 totally different instances this time. For skincare and haircare I splurged on the Louis Vuitton Good BB Case and find it irresistible. I simply purchased it so I’ve solely been ready to make use of it as soon as on this journey. I’ll be capable of share extra ideas as we journey extra! Packing Reel sharing what matches inside under.
Skincare + Hair Care:
For make-up I packed all the things within the Calpak Mini Cosmetic Case. This had been sitting in my on-line procuring cart for a lot of months. I lastly determined to order it in Caramel and find it irresistible. Tremendous roomy despite the fact that it’s the “mini” model. There’s a much bigger choice out there too!
I don’t at all times pack hair instruments however with the humidity within the Keys I wasn’t going to take any possibilities on the resort dryer. I packed up the T3 Micro Aireluxe and the ghd Platinum+ Styler. Each have been nice! I’ll in all probability change up the dryer for a distinct one subsequent time (this one took up numerous room) however will 100% journey with the hair straightener. It’s good to clean out the hair within the morning.
Final thing I needed to spotlight is how I pack my jewellery. I normally put on my necklaces whereas touring since I haven’t discovered a journey case that works for chains (they at all times find yourself getting tangled). However for all the things else the Mejuri Travel Case is ideal to retailer rings, three pairs or earrings and thicker chains. It’s additionally out there in black.
Have you ever been touring this summer time? We’ve been itching to journey extra however Ollie will not be but able to go together with us (hopefully quickly). He’s been in pet coaching the previous 2 weeks so the timing labored out for us to have somebody watch/practice him this time. We actually needed to deliver him however we’re glad we didn’t (it was too sizzling and the ferry experience was too lengthy for him!). He’s studying a lot! In case you’ve traveled this summer time let me know the place!
