I'll be the first to admit that my packing game was not always strong. In fact, up until very recently, I was definitely guilty of sporadic packing, as a result of which, I'd often bring way more things than I actually needed. Another major downside of my packing strategy was the failure to take into account the where and the what, by which I mean, the place we would be visiting and what it is we were planning to do. So, I'd often forget to bring some of the things I would now consider my absolute weekend getaway must haves.

Well, practice does make perfect I suppose, and after a few disastrous trips, I've learned that when it comes to packing smart, versatility is definitely the best way to go! Take our trip to Rancho Valencia for example. I wanted to pack a few things that I could easily dress down for day or up for night. So, I went with a cute off the shoulder top ( also loving this one & this pretty chiffon mint one ), that I could pair with casual paperbag waist shorts for day and skinny jeans and heels for night.

Comfort is very important to me, so a pair of flats is always a must! Reason why I love these Olgana Paris floral-details flats is because the buttery soft suede makes them so comfortable I could literally run around in them all day long, yet the pretty details and embellishment definitely make them special enough to wear at night!

Another absolute must, is a great cover up! What I normally look for is something I can easily throw over a bikini during the day, yet something special enough I could wear to dinner, paired with dressier shoes and a clutch ( good examples here & here ).

Last but certainly not least is jewelry. On of the easiest ways to dress up an outfit, I always make sure to take a few cute bangles, rings and necklaces with me, so I could add a bit of sparkle to my night-time outfits!:)

Packing light is key specially if you have to carry it everywhere, it can get exhausting. Super cute outfits. I'm loving the tunic.

No matter how often I travel, my packing game is always so bad and I always end up being stressed out. :D
You're looking stunning in both of these outfits and they're perfect combos which you can wear in different occasions and as well, dress them up or "tone them down", depending on the place that you're going to. :)

One way of making sure you don't go away looking like someone moving home is to only pack a few items, then buy stuff wherever you go. Might not be 100% co-ordinated, but at least you won't be cussing yourself as your arms feel like they're about to fall out of their sockets 😓💁 Oh, and that's a super kaftan 🌟

Love the second outfit, white top from the first look and pics! :)
