Puerto Rico Packing


Wednesday February 27, 2013 comments   

A short “what I packed” post for my recent trip to Puerto Rico.

I feel good. Another trip where I successfully avoided buying anything new to pack. Though I wanted to something fierce. Like a new bikini and new sneakers. Neither of which I wear on a steady basis so post-trip they wouldn’t get used much.

I did single carry-on only and wanted my suitcase to be as light as possible. I did end up bringing my new Everlane tote bag for use as my “personal item” bag. I also used it for the pre/post-hotel check-in/out.

I also brought fleece tights for layering while in DC. I really didn’t want to bother packing a coat just to have the few moments between the parking garage & airport concourse so I layered the tights, dress, boyshirt, scarf, etc.

The sneakers & raincoat were mostly for the day trip to the El Yunque rain forest. Also I find switching between different sets of shoes helps prevent blisters during any heavy-walking trip.

The temperatures were between low 70’s to upper 80’s so I wanted a lot of layering pieces that were made from breathable fabrics (aka no silk, god I have a closet full of silk!)

These picks turned out great. I was always comfortable, prepared, etc. I was glad I didn’t pack any flow’y skirts because the breeze would have been too much for those, and I’m extremely happy I packed the denim boyshirt as it layered great when in an air conditioned cafe.

I was in a heavy monochromatic wardrobe rotation before leaving for the trip but coming back I’m ready to add some color for spring. I need to sit down and think about which stark winter items to pack away though it’ll continue to be winter cold for a little while longer.
