Are you a light packer? I can confidently say that I am not. I like to prepare for all eventualities and really struggle to streamline the contents of my suitcase. This summer I’m hoping to get a little better, however. And I think a packing light checklist could be the secret to success. (Can you tell I’m a type-A, organisation freak yet?)

For summer travel my checklist would include two lightweight, day-to-night dresses. One pair of comfortable, flat shoes that can be dressed up or down. One bikini. One pair of shorts. A few lightweight tops, and one knit or summer jacket for chilly evenings.

And if you really need to pack light I’d suggest treating yourself to one of Elizabeth Scarlett’s embroidered pouches. Use it as a cosmetics bag whilst you’re in transit, and a clutch during the evening. The jungle leaf and pineapple designs are my favourites, but there really is something for everyone in the collection.

  • Haha, my packing resembles more of a military operation than anything else. Every millimetre of the bag is filled with something I TOTALLY NEED and and up not using at all 🙂
