As a reminder, a few benefits to packing intentionally and purposefully (i.e. items that can be worn in multiple ways) include:
- Lighter load
- Less money & time spent checking luggage
- Greater mobility (because your usual heavy load isn’t weighing you down!)
- Less time spent deciding what to wear
- Minimizing excess
So now that I’ve convinced you, let’s take a look at one of my favorite travel staples:
the jean short.
Megan Michele: Jean shorts are essential to a warm-weathered wardrobe! So much can be mixed with this item and, if styled the right way, can easily be taken into cooler weather!
Ashlee: While I was in Italy (late May, early June) the mornings and evenings were cool (even chilly for this Floridian) and the days were perfectly warm. These jean shorts were the perfect solution as they could be warmed up with layers on those cool mornings and evenings. Not to mention, they are adorable and super comfy.
