Vacation Packing Secrets from the Ladies at Xen Clothing
Whether you’re also setting sail this summer or jetting off to a tropical destination, scroll down for insanely good vacation advice and insight from the ladies behind Xen Clothing.
What’s your packing process like?
“I put my outfits together beforehand, and take photos on my phone so I don’t forget. I then try to see how much will fit in my bag. I almost always pack too much! So then I start to filter out what I don’t need.”
Do you have any must-know packing tips?
“I stuff small things like underwear into my shoes to keep their shape. I also roll my clothes. It’s a great space saving technique, so I can pack more of the things I love.”
Describe your vacation style.
“My vacation style is—as my style generally is—very easygoing. Super-casual and comfortable because you’re going on vacation to relax, so why not let your clothes be the same way?”
Do you gravitate toward one swimsuit style in particular?
“Currently, supportive style tops and skimpy bottoms. Although the bikini bottoms that I now wear have to come up a little higher on my belly to cover my scar from the c-section. Otherwise the bikini will irritate my scar. Having a baby definitely changed the style of bikini that suits me best.”
What are your go to cover-ups and accessories?
“Either T-shirt dress or a tank dress, and a big wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for accessories.”
If you were stranded on an island, what would be your three fashion essentials?
“An oversized T-shirt that could work as a dress, a surfboard, and a headband to keep my hair out of my face.”
What is your favorite activity to do on vacation?
“I love to surf so I always try to plan my trips around awesome surf locations. I go to San Diego every year to surf.”
