The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and everybody is busy daydreaming about their next vacation getaway. But before all of that fun in the sun or adventure in a new place, we need to set ourselves up for success with the perfect outfits. More importantly, we need to make sure all of our great outfits fit into that convenient carry-on suitcase. And that means knowing what to bring, how to style it, and how to pack it.
Recently, Lifestyle Expert Christine Bibbo Herr teamed with Tommy Bahama on a nationwide satellite media tour to share helpful tips on styling your vacation wardrobe and packing the perfect carry-on bag.

According to Christine, pre-planning for vacation is key so that when you arrive at your destination, there’s no guesswork. When deciding on what to pack, always start with the color story and think about how many ways you can wear each piece. Colors should be interchangeable, and styles should be multi-purpose, allowing you to layer and make endless outfit combinations.
Tommy Bahama, the masters of relaxation, are the perfect source for vacation-ready, multi-purposes pieces. Their swimsuits are not only reversible, but work great with shorts, allowing you to go seamlessly from pool to party or around town. It’s also a good idea to pack an active piece, like this skort made from performance fabric. It’s lightweight and moisture-wicking, making it a great piece for walking, pickleball or other fun activities.
When packing your carry-on bag, planning is important. Try using packing cubes to stay organized so that when you get to your destination you know where everything is and you save space. They are also great to use for your dirty laundry on the way home.
Don't overpack accessories. Pick one shoe that can get wet (like a flip-flop), a sandal to dress up or down, a sneaker for walking and staying active and a great pair of Maui Jim sunglasses for sun protection. Plus a packable hat and a roomy tote that you can carry on the plane.
