I’m again with a packing roundup! We took per week off for a mini getaway to Key West. It’s been 5 years since we’ve visited and this journey we took my in-laws with us. We took the Key West Categorical from Fort Meyers this time. General it was loopy sizzling and humid throughout our time however we nonetheless had quite a lot of enjoyable! It was a soothing journey, we did quite a lot of strolling.
A fast take a look at the resort we stayed at. Andrew and I booked a 2 bed room cottage at The Capitana Key West. It’s one of many newer lodges and we actually appreciated it! Tremendous clear, good trendy design, every day housekeeping, cute pool and lounge space. It’s 2 miles outdoors of downtown so you’ll undoubtedly want a automotive or golf cart of some type because it’s too sizzling to stroll that far. Right here’s a fast look. If you wish to see the within, I did a mini room tour on Instagram I’ll put up beneath.
For packing Andrew and I packed up 3 Away Greater Carry-Ons (there was a dimension restrict for baggage on the ferry). I nonetheless actually love these suitcases and extremely suggest them. The Greater Carry-On is the proper dimension to pack necessities for an prolonged weekend getaway. I additionally actually love their Packing Cubes – each Andrew and I take advantage of these. For longer journeys now we have and just like the Medium Suitcase. Their Equipment choice is fairly good lately too! I purchased Andrew the Massive Toiletry Case and he approves of the design, materials and high quality!

I’ve by no means acquired so many questions as I’ve about sneakers! Listed here are the highlights on sizing and luxury:
Tory Burch Double T Sport Slide is one in every of most snug sandals I’ve tried. I’ve owned this pair for a pair years now (additionally seen right here and right here). They’ve held up rather well despite the fact that I’m not probably the most cautious with my toes. Whereas it doesn’t have arch assist there’s a cushion within the sole which makes them actually snug on the toes. They run true to dimension (I’m a 6.5 in most sandals). Consolation is 10 out of 10.
Historic Greek Sandals Eleftheria Sandal are a latest splurge and I really like the minimalist look. They’re very sturdy and I like that they keep on the toes. The straps will not be adjustable so it was pure luck that they match me completely. I want the straps have been adjustable although – it looks as if having an ideal match isn’t all the time going to occur since everybody has totally different widths for toes, ankles, toes and so forth. Consolation is 8.5 out of 10 for me. These are available in entire sizes and the Measurement 7 works completely for me.
Chloe Woody Slide Sandals are ones I believe are tremendous cute, however consolation is a stage 7 out of 10 for me. They’re not painful however they’re additionally not ones I need to stroll round all day in. These are available in entire sizes solely and I put on these in a 37.
Veja Venturi Sneakers are cute for that chunky sneaker development and I discover them very snug. They’re very snug to stroll in round all day. Sizing critiques appear to be combined (it might rely on shade). For these I put on them in a US 6/ EUR37.fendi
Fendi Really feel Slides have been a splurge and I really like them. They’re very snug and I had no points (no break in interval). There’s a slight arch assist inside and the only has some beveled edges to hug the toes (so there’s no sliding round inside). Even with sweaty toes they stayed on. Sizing is large and broad. I’ve narrowish toes so I took these in a Measurement 36. I might have in all probability gone right down to a 35.5 however the 36 may be very snug. I might suggest going a 1/2 down out of your common dimension or purchase from a retailer that has a superb return coverage.
For magnificence packing I packed up merchandise in 2 totally different instances this time. For skincare and haircare I splurged on the Louis Vuitton Good BB Case and find it irresistible. I simply purchased it so I’ve solely been ready to make use of it as soon as on this journey. I’ll be capable to share extra ideas as we journey extra! Packing Reel sharing what matches inside beneath.
Skincare + Hair Care:
For make-up I packed every thing within the Calpak Mini Beauty Case. This had been sitting in my on-line buying cart for a lot of months. I lastly determined to order it in Caramel and find it irresistible. Tremendous roomy despite the fact that it’s the “mini” model. There’s an even bigger possibility obtainable too!
I don’t all the time pack hair instruments however with the humidity within the Keys I wasn’t going to take any probabilities on the resort dryer. I packed up the T3 Micro Aireluxe and the ghd Platinum+ Styler. Each have been nice! I’ll in all probability swap up the dryer for a special one subsequent time (this one took up quite a lot of room) however will 100% journey with the hair straightener. It’s good to clean out the hair within the morning.
Very last thing I needed to focus on is how I pack my jewellery. I often put on my necklaces whereas touring since I haven’t discovered a journey case that works for chains (they all the time find yourself getting tangled). However for every thing else the Mejuri Journey Case is ideal to retailer rings, three pairs or earrings and thicker chains. It’s additionally obtainable in black.
Have you ever been touring this summer season? We’ve got been itching to journey extra however Ollie is just not but able to go along with us (hopefully quickly). He’s been in pet coaching the previous 2 weeks so the timing labored out for us to have somebody watch/prepare him this time. We actually needed to carry him however we’re glad we didn’t (it was too sizzling and the ferry journey was too lengthy for him!). He’s studying a lot! In case you’ve traveled this summer season let me know the place!
