This year as I thought about packing for a spring break getaway with Mr. Bluebird, I decided to limit my wardrobe to three basic colors. I was hoping to get the most out of my suitcase space, along with giving me alot of options once we reached our destination. I chose navy, coral and white.
Now, I am no fashion expert (nor do I play one on tv, lol!), but I thought I would share with you what I took along. It was a fairly casual vacation, so for bottoms I chose denim jeans, white jeans, navy chinos and a pair of khakis. I packed 16 tops/jackets and came up with at least 26 variations! Add a few pieces of jewelry, several belts, scarf and three handbags and I was on my way!
Navy and white cap sleeve top with an eyelet & denim vest.
Navy and white top on its own.
Same top with a denim jacket. Who doesn't love a classic jeans jacket?
A jeans shirt and a coral leopard jeans jacket.
Coral and navy plaid shirt, navy tee and white denim jacket.
Same shirt and tee, paired up with the blue denim jacket.

Throw on an infinity scarf and there's another look!

Mini print zip up and white tee - looks cute with the nautical inspired bucket bag.
Cute with a skinny navy belt.
Or a floral print crossbody.
Simple coral Henley.

Same cardigan tied in a knot over the coral Henley.

Instead of a scarf, just a simple necklace.

A little more southwest style with an oversized leather belt.

And with the white denim vest...
And with the denim jacket.
Six pairs of shoes (probably a few too many, but since we weren't flying there was space to bring them along - so why not?!). My pants for the trip...two dark wash jeans, navy chinos, white jeans and khakis.
I took three bags - a small crossbody to use in the evening, a floral shopper to use during the day (good for shopping - hence the name) and the striped bucket bag because it's so cute!
While I still packed quite a bit, sticking with a limited color palette allowed me alot of flexibility during our trip and I had the right outfit no matter what the weather or activity. I will definitely use this method again and especially for those trips where I can only take a carry on.
Hope you found some packing inspiration for your next getaway!
I will be sharing more about our spring break trip soon.
