The Day-to-Night Outfit I Swear By on Vacation

Whether I’m packing for a quick weekend back to Kansas to visit my family or planning for an extensive summer getaway, there’s one outfit combination I pack no matter the occasion. As I’ve increased my frequent flyer miles over the years, I’ve learned the importance of planning my vacation looks before getting out of town. Not only does this trick ease my outfit options once I get to my location, but it also helps avoid additional baggage fees—and who can complain about that?

The great thing about my foolproof outfit combination is its timelessness, sure, but it’s also an ensemble you can take from day to night with a simple change of shoes. Enough with the anticipation, though. Here it is: For every trip I go on, I always pack jeans and a cool white top. The simple combination lends a stylish and polished look, and as I already mentioned, you can easily dress the outfit up or down depending on your shoe selection. To prove it, I’m sharing the several iterations I’ve packed for my most recent traveling excursions below. See and shop the day-to-night outfit I swear by on vacation below.
