Write a check list of essentials

From credit cards to passports, write down a comprehensive list of essentials that simply can't forget. As well as ID and money, think adapters, chargers, booking confirmations, travel insurance documents, medications, and destination specific-toiletries, such as bug spray and sunscreen.

Book activities before you go

When you have a general idea of the excursions, activities, and restaurants that are available, you can plan a loose itinerary in advance. Not only will you avoid the stress of making last minute, an itinerary will also help you pack for your trip. By booking a few dinner reservations in town, a boat trip or a surfing lesson, you’ll know exactly how to dress.

Check the weather

Always check the weather before you go and whatever the app says, pack a sweater and an umbrella or raincoat anyway! Unpredictable weather can spoil a trip if you're not prepared but packing warm and waterproof clothes ensures that you can still head out and explore. For more adventurous trips, pack extra base layers like outdoor and athletic pants, short and long-sleeve tops, and extra undergarments. They don't take up much space and you’ll be glad to have them!

Pick a color palette

Packing clothes in a limited color palette creates a honeymoon capsule wardrobe that is flexible and easy to dress from. A base of neutral shades is a good place to start (think black, white, beige, denim) then add in one or two of your favorite colors to add personality to your looks. Consider versatile mix and match patterns such as stripes, florals, leopard print and gingham in the same color palette too.

Travel in comfort

Wear your bulkiest items on the plane and extra layers, such as a scarf, sweater or blazer. Travel in comfortable joggers in cotton or cashmere that are chic enough to go out in, as well as lounge around your hotel room. If you plan to go jogging or partake in a relaxing yoga session, don't forget to pack workout wear.
