When winter time comes about, many of us start thinking about a way to escape back into the sun. Though it’s an exciting time of year to get into the holiday spirit, sometimes you just can’t beat heading off to a sunnier climate. If you are jetting off, here’s a guide on what to pack for your winter getaway:
Where Are You Headed?
You may be living it up in a luxury all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean, or perhaps you’ve opted for a comfortable Mediterranean cruise – either way, you need to make sure you’ve got everything you need. Be sure to look ahead at the predicted weather, keeping an eye on it in the coming weeks as you get closer to leaving. This will give you a better idea of what you need to bring, and what you can leave at home.
Even if your journey is short, you’ll still be grateful some in-flight entertainment to keep you amused. Pack a couple of books and magazines from the airport, these will also be great for reading when relaxing poolside or in your hotel room. Alternatively, if you really need to save on space, then you can download a news app or bring your tablet for a range of books on the go.
Key Outfit Choices
When it comes to your outfit choices, less is more. Particularly when you know that half of the time you’ll just be lounging around in your swimwear. Bring a few key pieces that you’re able to mix and match while you’re away. For the daytime, pack a few t-shirts, shorts and skirts that you can swap around to create new outfits each day. You should also bring some comfy womens sleepwear for the nights where the temperature may start to drop.
When it comes to evening attire, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress. It is a must, perfect to dress down for daytime but also ideal for the night after you add a few glamourous accessories. A go-to for any trip. Wear it over your designer lingerie for a sexy, sophisticated look.
Making The Memories Last
You could go high-tech and capture all your finest moments with a digital zoom lens that’s easily attachable to your smartphone camera. This will help you take better quality pictures to remember the amazing trip. Alternatively, why not go old-school style with a polaroid for instant print outs? Or for a twist keep the pictures a surprise with a disposable camera, only to be unveiled once you’ve had them printed!
