Tour de Texas

by | Mar 5, 2020

My husband is our resident travel agent.  He takes care of all the details, flights, hotels, restaurant reservations, and tours.  It’s a dream! 

This spring break we are going to be visiting a few cities in Texas while we squeeze in a last minute college visit for my oldest daughter.  This mama might get emotional about the whole situation, but that is another blog post!

Dallas is our first stop for the school tour and hopefully we will be able to do some shopping. And then on to Waco for a half day, mama wants to see the Silos.  From there we head to Austin to explore the city and go on a bike tour.  And our last stop is San Antonio, for more exploring, and hopefully some spa time.

With all the driving and hotel changes, packing light is a must.

I’m not going to lie, I am a chronic over packer.

I’m pretty good at keeping my choices to a minimum, but at the last minute I panic and start throwing in extra clothing I “might” need, “just in case”.  Can anyone else relate?

This trip I’m going to try to keep it simple since we will be in a new hotel every night.

This is what I’m packing for each day and I’m sticking to it!


Day 1 Dallas

I don’t usually wear jeans on the plane, however, we need to rush straight from the airport to the school tour and I don’t want to have to change in the airport bathroom.  The Dylan Jacket  is going to be my go to topper for the trip.  A jean jacket is such a classic piece and for me, a wardrobe staple.  I’m also a huge fan of white jeans, they are so versatile, they can easily be dressed up or down.  And adding a little color with a vintage Cabi sleeveless top.

Day 2 Waco & Austin Bike Tour

Since we are going to be biking around Austin in the afternoon, athleisure is going to be my go to style.  I love these Athleta pants for travel, they don’t wrinkle, have an elastic waist and are super comfortable.  Unfortunately they don’t sell this exact pair anymore. The style below is very similar, and just as comfortable.  A basic grey tank  so I can get a little sun on my arms (with sunscreen of course!).  And a quarter zip as a layering piece.

Days 3 & 4 San Antonio

Strolling along the River Walk, soaking in the sun, sipping margaritas, enjoying the easy pace of vacation calls for these adorable High Low Crops , this easy striped tank, and the Dylan Jacket, but I doubt I’ll need to wear it.

I’ve also packed the Lido Crop with a graphic tee for our final day. I was skeptical of the wide leg crop when I first saw them, but fell in love the minute I tried them on!  Graphic tees are such a great option for everyday, and this one by Chaser is one of my favorites!
