Summer holidays are around the corner and we’ve been thinking about where to spend them. It looks like this year, more than any other, we will choose to spend the holidays in our own countries or even at hour homes. If we have a holiday home, summer house or some sort of vacation home we will probably book it in the calendar as our holidays over there. We will be travelling light for a staycation.
Travel Light For a Staycation
Let’s take it positively. We don’t need to book a flight, most likely, we don’t need to rush or even to pack too much. We’ll be staying in a country where we know it or close to home. We know what’s the weather like there, also what we can do to keep the family entertainment and where to relax. For the staycation, we really don’t need much. And if we spend it in our own houses we need to make it as cosy as possible without dealing with usual everyday stuff.
What Would We Pack
For a staycation, we don’t need to overpack at all. If we live in a mild country the jeans and shorts are essential with the lighter top and some kind of cover-up for colder evenings. Or skirt and dress are a great options too. Don’t forget the bikini, after all we are on holidays. Otherwise, if you live in the hot climate the packing list is even shorter, skirt, shorts and dress with vests and the bikini and you are perfectly fine. The summer clothes don’t even take that much space in the bag.
Over the summer we can play a bit with our capsule wardrobes. Adding a headscarf is a nice touch and will upgrade your outfit. It can be boho style for a beach day or silky one to add a more dress-up style. Also, hats are great for hot summer days, it won’t only save you a headache but also cover your skin and shoulders. And great sunglasses are a must.
Staying at Home
If you decided to stay at home not even to travel to your country, don’t be a worry. You can create a hotel room from your bedroom by simplifying it. Instead of having breakfast in the kitchen, take it to the garden or bring it to the bedroom. And at night you don’t need to have a usual dinner, but order something special and create that beach restaurant atmosphere at your garden. Lighten up the candles and play nice summer music. You can create a beautiful atmosphere without leaving your house. And don’t forget to dress up, you have your whole wardrobe on hand.
