What to pack for Israel had me stumped. The general rules with conservative dress is that tops and dresses should cover your shoulders and pants, skirts, or dresses should fall below the knee. It’s a good idea to plan for layers and a scarf or Pashmina is the ultimate piece to complete your outfit. Israel isn’t exactly a conservative place though. Even though it’s very important to wear modest clothing to religious places, it’s a lot more casual in cities like Haifa or Tel Aviv and you can basically wear whatever you like. I partnered with Silver Icing for some beautiful clothing options that fit my Israel trip perfectly. From Maxi skirts and dresses to tunics and leggings, Silver Icing has me covered in Israel and for the entire year in Southern California. The pieces I chose can be worn just about anywhere.
I chose four tunics, a sweater, a tank top (that can be worn with a scarf or sweater if I need coverage), a Maxi dress and skirt, leggings, jeans, and a couple statement accessories as the “icing” on the cake. I stuck with three base colors so mixing and matching would be easy and I chose pieces that could be worn multiple ways. These 12 Silver Icing pieces are all that I need not only for my trip to Israel but as a complete wardrobe in Southern California.
The Summer Breeze Tunic is my favorite piece. I already wear it to the beach, shopping, and playing at the park with Athena. Paired with leggings or jeans, it can be worn multiple ways and always looking flattering. Did I mention it has pockets? I’m in love. Talk about a transitional piece, I can wear this tunic with a pair of cute skinny jeans or leggings or grab some heels and rock it as a dress.
All of these Silver Icing pieces fit in my carry-on along with my bathing suit, computer, camera, phone, toiletries, adapters, cords, and passport. I’ll have a little bit of space left over for small purchases at the market. I don’t think I’ll be able to leave Israel without purchasing at least one Pashmina.
I leave for Israel in four days. I can’t wait to explore the land of creation.
