Vacay style 101
It’s June. Read: that time of year when any excuse to take off on a holiday is completely valid. So what should you keep in mind when packing your trunk? Weather. Check. Itinerary. Check. Comfy shoes (for sightseeing lovers). Check. The city’s fashion scene. Double check! So here’s a little heads-up on what to pack and what not to when going to these dream vacay spots. Because it doesn’t hurt to look your best – even on holiday.
