The art of packing well and lightly is an acquired skill. It takes years of practice. After countless trips in various climates, you become quite ruthless in your choices and what makes it into your suitcase. It’s all about packing things that are essential, versatile, and functional.

Measure your success only by what truly matters: your happiness and the happiness you bring to others. If today you laughed, felt inspired, or consoled a friend, smiled to a stranger, stood for a cause, or inched closer to one of your dreams, then today was a resounding success. - Beau Taplin I will be reminding myself of this for a little while. My heart is feeling heavy but my soul is forever hopeful. 💫 #onward #bali #sanur #thebalibible #balidaily #thebaliguideline

Although technically not a dress, I love a playsuit that has a flowy girly style! A frilled un-tailored playsuit allows for extreme comfort, can be worn on more adventurous days whilst still looking super cute!
Wandering the back streets of the Bangkok Flower 🌺 🌺 🌺 This alleyway had tuk tuks lining up to be loaded with things like flowers and garlic and while most people may think there isnt anything interesting about it. I was fascinated. It's amazing how in the eyes of a tourist/traveler/photographer you can spot the beauty in the ordinary. * Where have you found beauty?

When you travel frequently you learn to become very efficient, especially when packing! This isn’t for everyone, I think it works because I am short, but a maxi skirt can be very versatile! Grab one with an elastic waist so it can be used as a dress as well, pop on a belt and you have a whole new outfit!

So 90’s. So cute. A pair of overalls is one of the best things you could pack! Perfect for plane trips as they are super comfy. For the colder days chuck under a striped long sleeve.

Another really versatile item. Pack a long shirt that is lightweight and breathable, through over swimmers for a beach day, or tie up the front and pair with denim shorts for a whole new look.
