My next trip is in 4 sleeps (but hey who's counting). I received my Antler suitcase just in time and I thought I'd show you how to pack a suitcase for your travels in 3 simple steps. I'm traveling to Bali, somewhere I've been a handful of times before but super excited to be exploring different parts of the island. I'll be there for 10 days - just enough time to re energise before starting a big year ahead.

Start with the essentials

Your 'essentials' vary depending on what destination(s) you're traveling to. Think about where you'll be going and what you'll be doing there, then pick 3-5 items that are a must. Try to be as minimal as possible. I'm traveling to a tropical destination so my top 3 essentials are:Beauty: I'm quite minimal in the beauty department and not much changes when I'm traveling. For this time it's the tropics so the number one item I need for my skin is sunscreen - one for the body and one for the face (usually a tinted moisturiser for me!)Accessories: The sun will be blazing so sunglasses are in my top 3 essentials.Apparel: Bikinis. Because majority of the time I'll be 1. at the beach, 2. in or by a pool and 3. always by the ocean. I like to mix & match so I've packed a couple of sets. [show_shopthepost_widget id="507671"]  

Plan your outfits

It's best to plan your outfits to avoid overpacking. I genuinely love light, breathable and comfortable pieces to easily slip on over the top of my bikini for summer travels. For minimal packing: place your outfits you plan to wear on top of your bed, then get ride of half of what you planned. Don't be ashamed to re-wear items: one pair of bottoms (shorts/skirts/jeans) can go a long way if you match it with different tops, and vice versa. A colour palette always helps, I'm sticking to lots of whites (it really pops when you get a nice tan), natural blue denim and a few printed creams.Related: Packing for a Stylish Summer Escape with Condé Nast Traveler [show_shopthepost_widget id="507675"]  

Add the final touches

Whether they're accessories, vitamins, or medicine, make a travel checklist for your final items and add them towards the end. These will most likely be the items that will be by your side in your carry-on suitcase. Mine are usually my camera gear for photography and tech stuff for blogging. Add your final touches and start rolling or folding. Whichever packing style suits you best.[show_shopthepost_widget id="507683"] Read more: Simple Ways to be a Fashionable Traveller
