Put together a little post to hopefully inspire me while packing to pack less and lighter because at the moment my usual anti-minimalist style is being rather demanding of the non-existent space in my suitcase. (I can always tell which of the indefinite number of black suitcases is mine because it is always that one that is bulging at the seams, ready to explode (and then I end up not wearing half of the things I brought). But this time I've challenged myself to pack only what is necessary: basics like the picks above that are so easy to put together in so many different ways (and of course, a favorite light-blue button up). Not to mention the fact that I am traveling to Africa and the Middle East so the temperatures will not exactly be necessitating a plethora of layers, so that's in my favor, as well~ 

What does your summer wardrobe look like? Do you have any packing tips for a struggling over-packer? I'd love any advice! 

Happy Friday!

P.S. A few lovelies reached out to me saying that they were unable to leave a comment. If this is the case for you, I'd still love to hear from you and you're more than welcome to send me an email with your thoughts (and in this case, advice)!
