Packing & Travel Essentials:India,Goa: Maldives

Packing is always a challenge, I can just about make a decision on what I am wearing tomorrow let alone how bloated I will be & what I will feel like wearing in a weeks time.
Below is my check list of things to pack & how I have prepared for my trip which has helped me get organised & I hope can inspire you too.
I don’t have the time to go in to detail on every item of clothing I will be taking (my flight is in a few hours) but the majority of my wardrobe is very comfy and boho, I have left a bit of extra room in my case to stock up on some threads In Goa because it is RIDICULOUSLY cheap!
Maldives however is quite the opposite so I have invested in a few statement garms (pictures to follow).
Usually I take at least one pair of heels but apparently in the Maldives a lot of the islands are bare foot attire which I LOVE the idea of & Goa is totally chilled so I decided not to take any – comfort first, just how I like it!
