My Favorite Places To Shop Before A Trip

Outfits Travel

It’s pretty much guaranteed that if I’m going on a trip somewhere, I’ll be purchasing some new items specifically just for that trip.  My style changes a bit wherever I go –  Like, I’m more bohemian and chill in Phoenix, retro in Palm Springs, tailored and minimal in New York City and super relaxed and tropical in the Outer Banks.  So it’s fun to shop for some new items that fit whatever vibe you’re feeling for wherever you’re going!

What’s even better is when you can do all of your shopping in one place.  If you’ve seen my hauls on Instagram Stories, you already know this, but I’m usually a buy-in-bulk, one-stop-shop kind of shopper.  Shopbop, Mango, Free People, Urban Outfitters and Revolve are some of my favorite one-stop-shops, where I can get everything I need for my travel looks from cozy pieces to wear on the plane, to bathing suits, shoes and bags.  And, now, I have a new one to add to the list that I think you’re going to love as much as I do – PrettyLittleThing!

I love that since PrettyLittleThing is so affordable, I’m able to buy trendier pieces guilt-free.  They have the best selection of cute, little summery tops (from $7!) with cute ruffles and cropped hems.  I also love their selection of stylish loungewear, so I picked up some bike shorts, sweatpants and cropped hoodies.  After receiving my order, I was just as pleased with the prices as I was with the quality.  Next, I’m going to try out their swimwear*For sizing, I ordered a 4 in regular sizing and a 6 in petite.

See below to see and shop everything I got in my first PLT order (Many of which you’ve already seen me style on the ‘gram, like this pink knit and this lilac blazer).  I can’t wait to wear/style the rest!

Where do you shop for your trips?
