In the past, traveling light hasn't exactly been our expertise; most of us here at VDV HQ are chronic over-packers. What can we say, we love having options! However we've been drawing some inspiration from our favorite travel bloggers, and one thing we've noticed they all share is the ability to pack light. Like, really light. Think days, weeks, maybe even months with just a carry-on. We have to admit, it makes a ton of sense. Who has time to check bags (and subsequently, risk losing those bags) when wanderlust-ing that hard? The draw of getting to spend more time in dreamy destinations and less time stuck at baggage claim makes a serious case for carry-ons.
And although we're ready to change our over-packing ways, we definitely aren't willing to compromise when it comes to style. Enter the versatile, vacay-friendly line Faithfull The Brand. Founded by two friends from opposite ends of the globe (one from Australia and the other from Norway) and produced in Bali, the brand was created with "the modern traveler in mind." Their breezy, lightweight fabrics and effortless silhouettes make their pieces easy to pack and even easier to wear. Whether you're pool party-hopping or bumming around on the beach, a few Faithfull pieces are all you really need to pack.
Wherever you wander, make sure to bring the Muscat Playsuit along for the ride. This floral printed one piece is the epitome of boho-inspired perfection complete with tassel tie detailing at the drawstring waist and keyhole back--talk about Instagram-worthy.
The Fleetwood Jumpsuit is just the thing we want to wear while strolling around small beach towns and taking in the sights. The wide leg culotte bottoms lend a relaxed vibe, and the low cut open back makes it dressy enough to wear to dinner and drinks after the sun dips down.
We love the Topanga Playsuit for days when your skin ends up getting a little more sun-soaked than expected. With a relaxed crossover bodice and wide kimono-style sleeves this romper is easy to slip over a bikini, making the transition from beach to bar effortless.
