What type of blouse or top can I wear with a long skirt for dinner nights on our cruise?A fitted or loose style blouse will look nice with a long straight skirt. A black sequin skirt will make a statement so choose a simple style blouse to wear with it. If you are short a black fitted top with a long black sequin skirt will give you a taller and slimmer look.  If you are a tall woman you can wear a different color fitted, cropped or blousy top with your long black straight skirt. If you want to wear your skirt more than one night bring several different tops. You can accessorize with silver or sparkly (quality rhinestone or diamond) earrings, a silver bag and a shawl / pashmina.

Packing for a Caribbean Cruise
A Caribbean cruise  is a chance to relax in style and get some rays. A cruise is a chance to pick out vacation clothes, and a great  excuse to go shopping.

Travel Wardrobe Planning
Travel wardrobe planning is essential for an enjoyable trip. Determine how many days you will be traveling and what activities you’ll be doing. Separates can be mixed and matched easily and you can add variety with colorful scarves and a few pieces of costume jewelry. Dress codes are relaxed today. No need for a lot of dressy clothes unless you are going to a special event like a wedding, etc.

The Science of Smart Packing
With skyrocketing plane fares added to the new trend in charging fees for checked luggage, it makes good sense to pack all your travel gear in a carry-on. It not only saves time, but also ensures that you and your luggage arrive in the same city at the same time and, best of all, it gives you peace of mind!
