Some Summer Travel Tips + Special Bonuses….Two Awesome Elaine Turner Giveaways to Take Along

Last month I partnered with the Elaine Turner team at their boutique to participate in the launch of their “Swept Away to Seychelles” summer product line for an exclusive preview for Chic Sheet readers.  While reviewing all of the cool summertime looks, we discussed the styling of seasonal looks and packing tricks to make it all fit for our upcoming summer vacations.

I just wanted to share with you some of our discussion points…we took 10 categories most likely to join you on your vacations either to the Hill Country, or on a trek around the world.

Reminders for packing:

  • #1, do not bring anything that cannot be worn with multiple items or in multiple ways
  • Try to keep within color families…helps with outfitting and lessens the number of shoes; Shoes will kill you at weigh stations
  • Wear a lot of white & let accessories give you the pop!
  • Knits are best for travel; avoid linen, gauze, cottons that wrinkle a lot unless being wrinkled is your look
  • Roll your clothes, they hang out quicker & wrinkling is less
  • Invest in light luggage like much of the aluminum bags from  Rowena; all brands are making this look now

    1. Carol, I carry one of two that I own……both are lightweight and large. One is fabric (nylon Prada that I’ve had for years) and the other is straw one I bought from Elaine Turner last year. I carry it on the place with all my mags and then use for pool and shopping. I have a collection of summer totes….love them and use them a lot. T.M.I……I’m sure!
