We went to Arizona in 2022 for our much needed spring break. It was an amazing trip. And it’s time for me to share our experiences with you.and some well researched and tried tips for the trip to the desert.
I have been very much into capsule wardrobe for a while now. In that trip, I took inspiration of the colors of desert and planned my vacation wardrobe color scheme of earthy tones. This includes colors of creams, rust, brown, olive green and muted pink. These colors compliment each other and also stands out against a desert background.
Spring starts early in Sedona, bringing mild temperatures during the day and chilly temperatures at night (think 60s through 80s during the day and 40s through 60s at night). Layers are what’s called for during this period of time—tee shirts and light jackets during the day, long sleeves and heavier coats at night. Spring is Sedona’s high tourist season, so be prepared for lots of people and extended waits at restaurants. Again, comfortable shoes, sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen should be in your suitcase when you visit this time of year.

tshirt +sweater vest + Denim jacket + ankle pants + sneakers
This was my travel day outfit. Since I wanted to save spaces in my carryon, I wore as many layers of clothes as possible. This outfit gave me great flexibility for weather changes between the departure city and the destination. Make sure your pants is stretchy and light weight. Instead of denim jacket, you can also wear a padded wool cardigan which can be easily put on and packed away as needed.

The pockets made this legging a great choice as these pockets can hold essentials like phones or cards.
Tailored Shorts, Cami and Blazer

It’s unexpectedly chic, sophisticated and effortlessly smart. In this trip, I substituted the velvet blazer with a white cotton blazer. This look could be dressed up and down, by easily swapping your footwear between sneakers and heels. You may not want to wear this for hiking, but it’s certainly appropriate for exploring and then relaxing for a fine dinner.
