I’m again with a packing roundup! We took every 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 a whole lot of enjoyable! It was a calming journey, we did a whole lot of strolling.
A fast have a look at the lodge we stayed at. Andrew and I booked a 2 bed room cottage at The Capitana Key West. It’s one of many newer inns and we actually appreciated it! Tremendous clear, good fashionable design, each day housekeeping, cute pool and lounge space. It’s 2 miles outdoors of downtown so you’ll positively want a automobile or golf cart of some kind 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 publish beneath.
For packing Andrew and I packed up 3 Away Larger Carry-Ons (there was a measurement restrict for baggage on the ferry). I nonetheless actually love these suitcases and extremely advocate them. The Larger Carry-On is the proper measurement 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 as of late too!

I’ve by no means acquired so many questions as I’ve about footwear! Listed here are the highlights on sizing and luxury:
Tory Burch Double T Sport Slide is certainly one of most comfy 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 very well although 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 comfy on the toes. They run true to measurement (I’m a 6.5 in most sandals). Consolation is 10 out of 10.
Historical Greek Sandals Eleftheria Sandal are a current splurge and I like the minimalist look. They’re very sturdy and I like that they keep on the toes. The straps usually are not adjustable so it was pure luck that they match me completely. I want the straps had 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 complete sizes and the Dimension 7 works completely for me.
Chloe Woody Slide Sandals are ones I feel are tremendous cute, however consolation is a degree 7 out of 10 for me. They’re not painful however they’re additionally not ones I wish to stroll round all day in. These are available complete sizes solely and I put on these in a 37.
Veja Venturi Sneakers are cute for that chunky sneaker pattern and I discover them very comfy. They’re very comfy to stroll in round all day. Sizing critiques appear to be blended (it could rely on coloration). For these I put on them in a US 6/ EUR37.fendi
Fendi Really feel Slides had been a splurge and I like them. They’re very comfy 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 huge. I’ve narrowish toes so I took these in a Dimension 36. I might have most likely gone all the way down to a 35.5 however the 36 may be very comfy. I’d advocate going a 1/2 down out of your common measurement 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 in a position to make use of it as soon as on this journey. I’ll be capable of share extra ideas as we journey extra! Packing Reel sharing what suits inside beneath.
Skincare + Hair Care:
For make-up I packed all the pieces within the Calpak Mini Beauty Case. This had been sitting in my on-line procuring cart for a lot of months. I lastly determined to order it in Caramel and find it irresistible. Tremendous roomy although it’s the “mini” model. There’s a much bigger possibility out there 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 lodge dryer. I packed up the T3 Micro Aireluxe and the ghd Platinum+ Styler. Each had been nice! I’ll most likely change up the dryer for a special one subsequent time (this one took up a whole lot of room) however will 100% journey with the hair straightener. It’s excellent to clean out the hair within the morning.
Very last thing I wished 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 all the pieces else the Mejuri Journey Case is ideal to retailer rings, three pairs or earrings and thicker chains. It’s additionally out there in black.
Have you ever been touring this summer season? We’ve been itching to journey extra however Ollie will not be 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/practice him this time. We actually wished to deliver 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!
