    Going-On-Vacation ?

    Post by Princessa on Thu Apr 02, 2009 12:53 am



    Being on vacation should be all about doing things spur of the moment and, as cliché as it is, getting away from it all. Unfortunately, many women make the mistake of over-packing and don't realize that being left with too many clothing options can hinder their spontaneity and waste valuable vacation time.

    This frustrates the men in their lives to no end because they cannot begin to understand why we don't just pack the requisite number of underwear, socks if needed, shorts, t-shirts, skirts and dresses. Instead, we go overboard and then spend way too long trying to decide instead of just picking something and going with it.

    For women, the side that needs to feel prepared often overrides their reasonable side and over-packing is the result. Try to keep in mind the following suggestions to curb the urge to overpack and keep the peace with your loved one when travelling!

    Plan Plan Plan!
    During the planning phase it is important to check local weather forecasts for your destination and make sure you know what to expect for the time that you will be away. Also, consider the number of days and nights you will be away and remember that you cannot possibly wear everything that you instinctively want to pack. Think about how many nights you plan to dress formally and dine at an upscale restaurant and how many you plan to take it easy and either order room service or just grab a bite at a local hotspot.

    Limit your shoes


    Shoes are bulky, heavy and take up room so try to get your list down to two pairs. One pair of good walking shoes is a must, and your second pair can do double duty as dress shoes if you pick the right ones. Many brands such as Naot and Mephisto offer dressy versions of their styles -- think patent leather or burnished textures combined with arch support and cushiony foot beds. Choose shoes that go with your neutral colour scheme, and make sure they are broken in before you travel.


    One possible exception: an inexpensive pair of foam-rubber shoes or "flip-flops" will protect your feet from fungal infections. Not only are they light-weight, you can give them a quick wash and dry before packing them up.

    Limit Yourself

    I know that the men who read this article will nod emphatically when they read this next section. We all know that shoes are a woman's kryptonite. It is near impossible for a woman to walk by a pair without stopping to have a look, which is why they are such a big problem when it comes to going on vacation. When it comes down to it there are flats, heels, running shoes and flip-flops; plus you may need them in different colours to go with different outfits.

    Sometimes we're talking an extra bag just for shoes! What you should do to limit the number of shoes (and keep your travelling partner happy) is to choose shoes that can be worn with more than one outfit. It is irrational to carry a pair of shoes thousands of kilometres away just to wear them for a couple of hours, with one outfit, even if they do look darn good with that dress! So tell yourself you will wear them another time (sigh!) and leave those gorgeous but totally impractical stilettos at home and instead go for the wedges that you will be able to wear with your skirt the next night.

    Don't Forget to Have Fun

    Going on vacation is supposed to be a relaxing, rewarding experience. Stressing out over what to pack and worse, what you did not pack, is the last thing you want to do. Bring the essentials and don't think too much about the rest of your clothes. Vacationing is about being impulsive and being up for anything. It will be over too quickly and I guarantee that if it weren't for pictures you wouldn't remember what you wore, but you will remember who you went with and what a blast you had. Besides, a couple of years from now you will be wondering what you were thinking when you wore that awful outfit and those totally outdated shoes anyway
