WHAT TO PACK FOR 2023 SUMMER HOLIDAYS?
So what to pack for summer vacation 2023? Here is what!
Ps. I actually made more than just one packing checklist. Just in case you are not only spending your summer lying on the most popular and beautiful coast of the Adriatic sea … but also exploring the historical towns by the sea like Venice, Dubrovnik or Piran, like me. Furthermore, going to staycation at home.
So, one summer vacation packing checklist for summer vacation by the sea, another for a weekend getaway to European cities, and one if you are staying at home. Obviously, I didn’t forget you could be going on a beach trip, too. Hence, there’s a packing checklist for a day on the beach, too.
But first, check these chic suitcases and travel bags.
Coordinating outfits to match your location is part of the joy of holiday planning. Have where you are going in mind when putting the final touches to your getaway wardrobe.
Crisp cotton will keep you cool under the Santorini sun, and the strappy bikini will make you the most fashionable girl on Mykonos, whilst dinner in Paris calls for an outfit that is perennially chic and European. Here is the ultimate guide to summer destination dressing.
Passport, ID, documents, phone and phone charger, credit cards and wallet, toothbrush, dental floss, and toothpaste, sunblock (spf 50+), sun protection for hair, deodorant and perfume, alcohol antiseptic spray & hand sanitiser, comfortable underwear, fashionable clothes, swimwear, fashionable summer shoes, trendy hair accessories, sunglasses, stylish summer hat, capsule beauty bag, hairbrush, shampoo and hair conditioner, vitamins for hair and skin, first-aid kit, plug adapter, umbrella.
Now, let us start packing for summer vacations by the sea, shall we? I know the seaside is the first place you want to go right now.
If you plan to spend your 2023 summer vacation sunbathing somewhere on the French Riviera, Italian or Croatian beach or any other beach by the Adriatic Sea, this is what you will need: fashionable swimwear, a trendy cotton dress, a stylish crop top, linen shorts, pretty skirt and wedge espadrilles.
Remember, summer is time to try new things, have fun, eat ice cream, drink cold cocktails and think of nothing else but sun, sea and your new summer love. Don’t forget: mix and match different fashion trends and have fun while wearing them.
Be sure to go through my entire beach vacation packing list.
Weekend getaways to the European cities are my summer’s “must “. I simply love discovering new towns and also returning to the ones that I have visited before. My favourite summer trio is certainly Paris, London and … Rome.
There is something quite fabulous on the streets of glorious Rome in the summer. I think it’s the infinite Italian passion of life and Bellezza. You will feel it, the moment you will step out of the car and start exploring the city.
Only one tip to make sure you enjoy in la dolce vita … put on something chic yet comfortable, rent a moped and go on a whirlwind journey of the heart, from day to night. And don’t forget … When in Rome, wear what Brunette wears!
Staying at home for the summer? OK. You might want to pack for a staycation, just like you would if you were leaving your home for a month or two. Don’t worry, I will help you pack for 2023 staycation, too.
