Three Tips for Packing for Kids:
1. Reuse pieces when possible. Grace’s overalls from Carter’s are a perfect example of this. I plan to pack these for our Spring vacation because I can have her wear them a few times with different tops, baby shoes, and accessories. Overalls are super trendy for adults this Spring too, so grab these adorable ones so you can match your mini!
2. A little goes a long way. I honestly feel like overpacking is so easy with kids. Planning for two outfits a day is probably best, since kiddos get dirty. But don’t over do it, right? So if you’re swimming you only need the one swimsuit, and two pair of shoes. You can definitely have your little one restyle shoes and accessories.
3. Plan for the unexpected. Don’t forget emergency kid stuff like sunscreen, bug spray, and bandaids + a first aid kit. It’s important to be prepared for anything on a vacation!
Since I have a little girl, I love packing one-piece items. Dresses are my go-to for Grace because I don’t have to put a lot of thought into a pants or top matching one another. Plus, for Spring weather, dresses are perfect for the Spring weather! This blue and white striped Carter’s dress is so lightweight and airy. The linen-like material makes it perfect for vacation adventures.
