It’s no secret that packing for any vacation is tough work as there’s a constant push-and-pull effect when it comes to what you’ll bring along. Most people want their pieces to be fashion-forward yet comfortable, trendy yet practical, and “blogger-approved” but not too costly. Then there’s always those pesky questions that everyone has asked themselves at least once while filling their suitcase: “Am I packing too much?” and/or “Will I have enough to wear?”
I rest my case. Packing kind of sucks. However, there’s always one thing you can do that is sure to check off all of the ticks on your packing to-bring list, and that’s packing cute, but budget-friendly vacation pieces. Recently I’ve found that H&M offers a ton of great original and look-a-like items for vacation. For example, I found this super-cute swim top for only $20, and it looks just like one I had been eyeing from a more expensive brand. They also have a number of great summer essentials that will help make your vacation that much trendier. I scooped up this great beach towel for my recent vacation to Mexico, but I also love their sunglasses and cover-ups!
When packing, I didn’t just look online either! I’d also stop in-store to places like Old Navy and UAL to see what deals and sales they had going on at the time. That’s how I was able to score great pieces like this reversible tote for only $10! The deals are out there. You just have to be patient enough to look for them. And at the end of the day, no matter how many trendy and budget-friendly pieces you score, packing for vacation takes planning. Start the hunt early! That way, you’ll be that much more prepared when the date of your vacation actually rolls around.
