guest post: packing tips

Kathryn from Sweet Tea and Champagne is one of my dear friends who I met through living together in NYC two summers ago! She's got amazing fashion sense and I'm hoping she'll start posting more frequently on her site (nudge nudge)!
Hello lovely readers of dreams + jeans! I’m Kathryn over from Sweet Tea and Champagne and I’m beyond thrilled to be here sharing with you some of my favorite picks to take on a cruise! With spring practically nipping at our heels, it’s hard to not start building your spring/summer wardrobe. Lucky for me I’ll be heading down to the Caribbean in a few short weeks, and while this vacation calls for fun times, it also calls for a small suitcase… meaning I’ve got to make the best of what I bring (read: mix and match)! So here’s some picks that don’t take up too much room, but hopefully make a big statement!

There you have it! Mix and match these pieces of clothing, with a simple pair of sandals, plus a 2-in-1 necklace (yep, this piece from kate spade is reversible!), and you've got an entire trip's worth of clothing! Plus more room for whatever shopping is done on your vacation…because let's be real, you always come back with more than you left with!

ONE / TWO / THREE / FOUR / FIVE / SIX / SEVEN / EIGHT / NINE
