Ten Day Summer Vacation Packing List

Let’s face it, when you go on vacation you want things to be as laid back and simple as possible.  Yet you also want to look cute and put together.  So I combined the two into this fourteen piece, ten day summer vacation packing list and outfits.

  • You make me look like a major overpacker. I love that you can make 10 different outfits out of just 14 pieces and they’re simple but stylish pieces. Thanks for hosting and have a great week!

  • Alison! Such a cool post!!!! I know it must have taken you a sweet forever, but it was soooo worth it! I love all of your pieces, and I LOVE how you put them all together!! Good job friend!

    So hard to do when actually packing. I usually pack, then take out 1/3 of it and still have clothes I did not wear. I will try to do better in the future! The only thing I disagree on is the hat. Who has space for that? Just not a hat person.

  • those wedges are fabulous for all of the outfits.

  • I am such a horrible packer – either too little or way too much. Great list!

  • Great outfit ensembles! I love the way you mixed and match all these fun pieces together.

  • This is the perfect amount of clothes and all these outfits are so stylish! Love this idea and the fact that so many women have all (or almost all) these items in their closets already!

  • Vacay packing can really be stressful…..thanks for these awesome ideas Alison!


  • Great idea and great looks!

  • It is so difficult for me to pack a suitcase and remember everything and look confident about the outfits you will be wearing while away from the comforts of home!!! Thanks for the tips!! 🙂

  • Rebecca

    This is such an awesome post! Great advice!


  • What a great idea – thank you! I’m keeping this for our Disney World trip in November. I always over pack and don’t wear half of what I brought. You seriously just saved me hours trying to figure it out!

  • Really great ideas! Thanks for sharing…xo!


  • I love this list! I am the queen of over-packing and would have to add some pieces on the blank lines you left 🙂

  • This is a great list and brilliant choices. All but the white shorts. I still can’t seem to want to buy anything white. Might be my fear of getting them dirty, or fear of showing my underwear, I’m not too sure. Love everything else though ; )


  • You are so genius at remixing!! I need to learn how to pack that little for a whole 10 days! This is awesome, thanks!


  • Saxon

    Love the list! Perfect for a summer beach vacation!

  • This is SO similar to what I packed for San Francisco! Can’t go wrong with a black maxi and denim jacket!

  • love this list!!!

  • LOVE outfits 2, 3 and 5! Thank you for sharing your tips ladies!!!


  • Such a great idea– love these outfits!

  • This is a great list! I just ordered a pair of white shorts and I have everything else on the list except for the hat. We are going on a mini trip in a few weeks and you can bet I will be using this list. I really liked reading what the other ladies had to say about simplifying, too!
    Have a great week, Alison!

  • Meg

    yes to all of those items you posted belong in my closet! love your style

  • Great packing list! I love the download and saved it. It would be great for any type of trip really. Except maybe camping but since I don’t do that I can’t be positive. 🙂

    I used this last summer! Any way you could post a winter vaca capsule from the outfits from the fall and or winter challenges?

    • Thank you for the suggestion! Great idea.

  • Valarie

    I’ll be using this list as a guide for our honeymoon. The shorts will turn into capris as I need to keep the scars on my knees covered, but otherwise I can pull almost everything else from my closet. Packing this light will be so much fun!!!

  • archimom

    Cute – but do you seriously think you can wear white shorts that many times in a row and keep them clean? I can at least see washing them in between the earlier days, but you have yourself wearing white shorts 3 days in a row at the end!

    • Hi Irene! Yes, you will definitely need a washing machine for this packing list. 🙂 You’re free to mix up the days, or add more shorts, this is just a suggestion for when you’re tight on space.
