Although it is technically Whitney's day to post, I needed some serious roommate advice before I leave town. I apologize, in advance, for having to see two posts of me in a row.
I have lived on this earth more than a quarter of a century and yet I still don't know how to adequately pack a bag. I get really stressed out. Which is lame, because going on trips is so exciting. Why take any of the fun out of that?
But, how in the world do you fit everything you'll need for 22 days and for the following activities in one tiny carry-on bag? (Get real folks, I ain't paying 25 bucks to check a bag).
- Several Beach trips
- Family get-togethers
- An anniversary trip to Catalina island
- A Wedding ceremony and wedding reception
When I travel, I usually end up throwing 35 t-shirts, underwear, deodorant, and mascara into a suitcase and then realize I am an idiot after I have arrived at my destination without any pants to wear.
So I have been trying to brainstorm what to bring to California with me. This is the only thing I have come up with so far...
I figured I could double up my outfits. I was thinking this could be a Disneyland-all-day-outfit.
Nothing crazy. Just some nice spandex jeans, a baggy shirt, and some tennies.
And then, I could roll the pants back down, put on some heels, a belt, and some red lips- and use this outfit again for a night out on the town.
And by night out on the town... I mean, a night out at the Cheesecake Factory when Rhett and I go stuff our faces with 6 baskets of bread and 2 slices of Adam's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple.
Every single clothing item in both outfits: TJ Maxx
But this is all I got, people. I need help.
I am determined to make this suitcase packing as efficient as possible.
What items do you bring with you when you travel? What do you do to look presentable but still pack light?
PLEASE HELP! I fly out of Nashville tomorrow and will be packing my bags tonight.
