How to Pack Like A Rock Star
Being a lover of travel and all things adventurous in nature, from food to exploration we are always packed and ready to go.
Also being a fashion hoarding female in nature packing for adventure without sacrificing my very unique fashion sense,
strategic packing has had to happen. Oversized cumbersome bags can impede the adventure in too many ways from flights of stairs and the constant reshuffling it's entire contents just to find one single item. So how does one stay stylish and have options because women must always have random variables you know the style fluctuates with the mood and we must be prepared for any and all spontaneous events that may arise.
Depending on your style this may vary, enjoying more of an edgy rocker type fashion my saving grace for space in the old suitcase has been the legging. It takes up nearly no room at all from faux leather to solid stretch spandex it is a must have travel bottom.
Fashion and Style Travel Tips
Now another little trick I have learned is do laundry in the sink. A Marriott sink works just great
bring a little mini bottle of detergent and there you go. Wash and wear. You can limit things such as socks and underwear to two pairs wear one wash and dry the other.
Now when you unpack even if you strategically rolled every single piece of clothing to prevent those pesky wrinkles and if you are anything like me and have an aversion to the iron, take a steamy hot shower and have your wrinkled garments hang on the bathroom shower rod while you relax your travel weary body in that calming hot steam.
Packing solid colors as in black not only does it almost go with everything and is a classic can't go wrong go non color it also hides spots and stains which can be a common occurrence while delving into new and unusual tasty concoctions. By keeping it basic you have more room to mix and match and mix up your look creating more options without taking up more space.
Make the accsories the star. You can change your whole style by what you accessorize your outfit with. You can go from boho to rocker with one accessories. Being an avid instagrammer I can not have the same outfit in the many photos we take to promote our brand. We have to keep it fresh as I tumble down the rabbit hole to new and exciting different places.
One of my favorite bold accessories would be
the scarf it can hide the fact that it is the same black tank top that I have been in for nearly a week or the same black dress.
My favorite type of scarf would be a leather one it has that fashionable rocker bold edge I so desire and
crave in my fashion.
The Rocker Travel Purse
Everybody enjoys traveling but not everyone wants to look like a traveler. It's your vacation and it makes sense to be comfortable and relax but it also is your time to stand out from the crowd and be a little different and outlandish from your normal day to day wear. Nothing is worse than wearing an oversized sweater with your favorite Disney character on it while just trying to stay warm. We created a stylish bag that is a great piece to throw in for frockling around in new places. The options for bags is incredible now a days.
A purse that you can wear multiple ways is a great thing to have for all situations. How convenient that you can attach and style around your hips to be hands free and traditional
over the shoulder, and crossbody, and even have it where the strap can turn into a belt and you can attach your purse to that. Whew.
Sometimes you just need to pick up and carry a bag, luggage, small animal, or anything for some distance and having your purse slide down your shoulder and having to constantly re-adjust in the midst of your ordeal is just uncomfortable. I cannot tell you how many times it has made my life so much easier to just be able to attach my purse and go.
TRAVEL IN ROCK STAR STYLE
While on your journeys of grand adventure you have the look down, but it can all boil down to the accessories
Rocker Apparel Travel Go To
When weather requires it I travel with my favorite leather or faux leather moto rocker jacket it seriously goes with everything and
looks great and it elevates those leggings to a new fashionable level of style. It has never let me down and gives that wonderful little bad girl rocker edge.
Great for dancing, drinking, dinner, and breezy strolls through your locale.
The Rocker Luggage
So now we are on to the the luggage last but not least in anyway. This holds all your beloved items. This is a great thing where you can set yourself apart from the sea of plain black luggage, avoid the horrific experience of someone mistaking your bag for theirs and starting off your trip with merely the cloths on your back. That is just not cool. It has happened to me and probably every member of my family at some point in our numerous adventurous travels. Like the black sea of way too short of cocktail dresses flooding the the Las Vegas streets at the stroke of 9:00 so is the airport with the black rolling suitcase. What to do what to do. Go rocker go big skull all over that bad boy. Go big or go home just kidding.. Here are some what I think are really cool ones. I am not sure of the quality of these but they look pretty awesome. You can google skull suitcase skull luggage to find even more options for you rocker travel needs.
Another way you can set your bag apart is the luggage tag. Get creative have fun go bright so you can spot it quickly and get the party started. You can also sticker it up if you have an old suitcase and you are attached to it and see no need to go out and get a new one, no worries you can rocker up that trusty old bad boy. Get some band stickers of your favourite band or some skulls whatever is you and plaster it all over your bag it is a lot more personalized that let's say the the colored duct tape which truly does work. There is alway the iron patches as well that may look a lot cleaner than the stickers and will last and stay put on your material type bag if you the DIY type of person.
