Happy holiday week, lovebugs!! We’re headed to the lake this afternoon to celebrate the Fourth and our son’s birthday! What do you have planned?
I’ll be recapping our entire Greece trip, including all the stops, hotels, restaurants, ferries and more…but today is all about what I packed and wore. And hopefully it provides a little outfit inspiration for your long weekend!
Our trip had a lot of moving parts and close connections, so we opted to travel entirely by carry-on! It definitely took more planning on the front-end, and I was ruthless in my choices, but it paid off in the ease and convenience of being able to move from place to place quickly and easily.
I packed according to a color palette, so most everything mixed-and-matched, and each piece could be worn 2-3 times. The weather was warm, so I stuck with mostly cotton tanks and gauzy separates, and had plenty of combinations for the two weeks.
Each outfit is linked under the pic, with sizing included, and you’ll see how I repeated the pieces.
What I Packed for Two Weeks in Greece
- 1 Skirt
- 1 Pant
- 3 Shorts
- 1 White Tee
- 6 Tanks
- 1 Dressier Top
- 2 Tank Dresses
- 1 Wrap Dress
- 1 Jean Jacket
- 2 Swim Coverups
- 4 Swimsuits
- 1 Pajama
- 7 Undies (we washed in the sink mid-trip)
- 2 Sandals & 1 Flip Flop
- 1 Hat
- 1 Beach/Pool Tote
- 1 Crossbody Bag
Woven Bag (packs completely flat, but holds a ton)
As for my travel outfit (it’s a long travel day from Dallas!), I chose these wide leg pants, which are pajama soft, but look fairly chic and hold their shape well. At the last minute, I added my beloved Miller sandals, but honestly never wore them once in Greece.
The cobbled, dusty streets just were’t a good match for them, and I lived in these strappy sandals. I can’t say enough about them for travel and everyday, plus they’re 20% off with code HISUGARPLUM).
Obviously I couldn’t have managed all those pieces in a carry-on without my packing cubes! You’ve heard me sing the praises of them for years, and they’re honestly what made the carry-on life possible!
I saved space by leaving my hair dryer behind, so the hat came in handy for multiple reasons. I also limited my accessories to the bangle set. You can find a full tutorial of how I packed everything in my bag, plus a breakdown of what’s in my toiletry bag and carry-on here. And find all my Travel Essentials here.
I hope this post is helpful in packing for your own adventure! Leave any additional questions in the comments, and let me know what details you want to see in the trip recaps! Happy Fourth, lovebugs!
