We learned a lot over the past couple years with all the traveling we have been doing. The most important thing that we learned was to pack light. I thought I had done that on our trip to Florida, but packing for three weeks proved to be a challenge, and we ended up with way too many bags. The kids and Pete were not to blame. That was all on me, and it wasn’t from too many shoes, it was me that wanted a different look every day of our trip!
I know I’m not alone in that. Us moms want to love our clothes on vacations so that we look good in the pictures (it’s 2016, we are putting ourselves in the pictures, not just taking them)! But we also are juggling everyone’s luggage, plus our own, so we accept that we will have way too many bags.
That is until you have discovered our sponsored post partner, Vacay.
Vacay is changing it once and for all!
Vacay is one of the coolest ways to shop and dress for everyday life and for vacations. The idea behind Vacay is that by mixing and matching a few choice pieces, you can create multiple outfits to have a unique look without having to pack your whole closet. All of the pieces are ready to wear and wrinkle resistant right out of your overnight bag or suitcase too! Think wardrobe capsule, but for vacations. It is brilliant!
Vacay currently offers 6 collections, so there is a style that is just right for your own personal style!
I fell in LOVE with the Martinique 5 piece collection. Paired with three wardrobe essentials (that most people have in their closet already), it creates 14 outfits. I so wish I had this collection when we were in Hawaii or Florida earlier this year.
This is what my luggage could have looked like…
This is the collection in one bag. Seriously this would have had me covered for 14 days of outfit changes!
Maddie and I had a photo shoot with the collection because I had to show you all how great they fit and how beautiful they looked. Can I just stop and say how crazy it is to finally be able to share clothes with my daughter too?! It is also pretty cool that she thought the clothes that I picked out were awesome too!
A couple things I noticed right away when I received the clothes was how versatile the collection is and how it is designed to work together to easily mix and match. You can put together so many options with each piece really complimenting the other.
Another thing I notice and love is that everything is in travel friendly fabrications. It is all wrinkle resistant or wrinkle free, and manufactured in San Francisco. Yep, this is all from one of my favorite cities in the world!
Vacay also offers many collections to choose from. My other favorite collections are Cabo and Tahiti. Being a dress person, I am an unofficial dress expert, and these are some of the best fitting, comfortable, and well made dresses. I feel like these collections were all made with me in mind too. I especially felt this when seeing that they have “2-piece dresses” that offer so much more versatility than a typical dress. It is like having 3-4 distinct outfits from one! Vacay currently offers 10 different 2-piece MAXi dresses.
The names of the collections are actual places we plan to visit soon too!
I really think that this is the way of the future as far as clothing shopping for vacations (and at home) goes. If you are new to shopping this way, you will be thrilled to know that Vacay offers FREE shipping both ways so you can try them out risk free.
Here is Maddie and I wearing the Martinique Collection… I can’t wait until our next getaway. This is going to make packing so much easier! Until then, I will be wearing this collection and feel like I am on vacation at home!
I have some great promotions to share with you all!
Although all of these pieces can be bought individually, when you buy one of the five piece collections on VacayStyle.com, you will receives 20% off and a FREE Vacay beach bag (either buy a collection as designed or create your own by adding 5 items to your cart- the 20% discount is automatically applied).
Plus, for the month of July, It’s A Lovely Life followers will get a special discount code that can be used in addition to the 20% off collection discount. Simple enter LOVELY20 for 20% off your entire order (offer expires July 31st).
This makes me want to buy all of these collections!
