Spring Break: Travel for a Wedding

A getaway! A few weeks ago, I traveled to Montego Bay, Jamaica, for a family wedding. Since I was only going to be in Jamaica for four days, I wanted to travel lightly, which required that I packed efficiently. Here’s how I did it.

The Luggage:

My favorite carry-on bag is my Tangaroa holdall bag. I like to keep it light, so I also traveled with a pilot case that I could easily wheel through the ports.

Looks for the Day:

Top and skirt—Banana Republic
Fuchsia dress—Gap
Print dress—Express

Looks for the Evening:

Print dress—Ann Taylor
Black dress—Max Studio via Marshalls
Stripe dress—Ann Taylor

The Shoes:

It was surprisingly easy to resist packing several pairs of shoes once I found this versatile pair of black, snake embossed, leather thong sandals.  I also took a pair of flip flops for the beach and gold sandals for wedding.

Sandals—MICHAEL Michael Kors via Marshalls

    I love black and white – its so crisp and clean for summer. My favorite is to pop it with my bright orange cross body bag (A marc jacobs turnlock one!) and cheapie flips from target.
