What to Pack: Spain & Portugal (Dedicated Chic)

My hubby and I recently took a beautiful road trip through Spain and Portugal. In Madrid we visited the stunning parks and inspiring museums by day and ate at the chicest restaurants by night, while in Seville we wandered through the ceramic day dream that is Plaza de Espana and had our fare share of tapas by afternoon with a side of Flamenco into the wee hours of the night. La Alhambra and Generalife in Granada is a design and architecture dream and can keep the garden lover smelling the roses for hours on end. By the time we reached the red cliffs and white sand beaches of the Algarves in Portugal, our days were spent boating along the coast, sipping rose by way of breathtaking views and enjoying dinners with our feet firmly in the sand. Meandering up and down the windy streets of Lisbon, we explored the tile-laden architecture, shops and restaurants, immersing ourself in the city. 

Our many photos (um...ok, thousands), which ranged from the scenery to GC jewels to city nights, inspired many attire inquiries and I found myself DM'ing tons of insta friends, directing them to favorite designers, many of which I purchased on MatchesFashion.com.  Matches Fashion recently celebrated their 30th anniversary and they are one of my go-to sources.

I am now very excited to be able to share this

Dedicated Chic X Matches Fashion Packing List!

Matches ships DHL (Free Delivery and Free Returns with code: USAFREE) and any returns may be organized by requesting a DHL pickup or by dropping it off at a UPS location that accepts DHL shipments as well. I'm a bit enamored with their luxe boxes and packaging which I reuse in my closet to organize trinkets.


I've fashion packed for you a range of my favorite designers and pieces that will do double duty for your end of summer adventures and for transitioning into fall. I've included amazing sale finds that are perfect for storing away in anticipation of a winter getaway and shoes and sunnies that can keep you going from day to night (gotta save room in those suitcases for shopping). 

Happy Shopping!
