Hector and I are traveling to D.C. and I cannot be more excited! I have always wanted to go since I was a kid mostly because I am a major history nerd. I’ve heard amazing things about D.C. so I am certain our trip will be jam-packed with things to see, do, and eat!

Naturally, any time I travel, I have a very hard time choosing what to bring. I am definitely an over-packer and Hector always shakes his head at me because I am that person that brings the big suitcase and about 5 pairs of shoes for a 4 day trip.  Mostly I pack extra outfits to have “options” because who knows how I will be feeling that day, right? (I know I am not alone on this?!) I will end up repacking my suitcase a few times before deciding on the chosen pieces after eliminating the pair of jeans or that extra shirt I probably won’t need.

Well, today I am sharing some of the items I am packing for my trip to D.C. I pack and wear clothing based on the location and I read that the fashion in D.C. is mostly very business casual and “put together.” For this trip, I focused on bringing more tailored pieces of clothing with a little flare. Mostly basic neutral, white, and blue pieces with a pop of color here and there. Because of the warmer temperatures, I wanted to focus mostly on dresses and lightweight clothing. Shoes are mostly sandals and flats with all the walking we will be doing and a few other dressier items for some dinners we have planned the next few days.

Here are some of the pieces (or very similar ones) I currently do have in my suitcase! I’ve listed some others below that are either the same or similar for additional ideas for your next traveling adventure! Oh, I also have a couple of extra pieces of clothing, naturally, like this dress here and this skirt here that I am definitely taking with me!
