Pack Like a Pro…

 suitcasePacking for a trip is challenging. You don’t want to take too much or leave something behind that is essential. I love to travel and thought it would be fun to share some of my packing tips.

  • Check the destination weather first and pack accordingly.
  • Plan your wardrobe around your shoes. I like hybrid shoes that are multipurpose; sandals/dress shoes, walking/hiking. Don’t take more than three pairs. Leave your white tennis shoes at home. A pair of flip flops can double as shower shoes and sandals.
  • Two pairs of pants, four tops (two solid and two print), two tank-tops, skirt, walking shorts, sweater/jacket, vest and dark jeans. I like fast dry apparel- easy to wash and dries quickly.
  • Socks (I always have a pair to wear on the plane), underwear and sleeping attire that can be rinsed out.
  • Select only two colors- black is always my base and I either add olive or tan to break up the monotony.
  • Think threes- my rule of thumb is always dress in three layers and plan on wearing any item at least three times.
  • Scarves- they don’t take up any room and can be used to jazz up your basic black, protect you from the sun/cold or used as a makeshift picnic blanket.
  • Some people like to roll, but I like to fold my stuff using the Flip-Fold (at Container Store). The neat cubes make me happy.
  • Multi-sized zip-lock bags, packs of mini tissues, makeup remover pads and bungee cords are always helpful.
  • Indulge your inner fashion nerd and lay out everything in outfits: match the outfits to the days you are traveling. Walk away for a couple of hours. Then, reassess and remove a few pieces. You won’t miss them.
  • A foldable, thin rain coat with a hood is an essential.
  • Wear your heaviest clothing, shoes & jacket on the plane.
  • Keep in mind that no matter how much help you have, there will be times when you have to carry your own suitcase- make sure you can.
  • Leave room for souvenirs and treasures- remember the clothes never go back into the suitcase as well as when you first packed.
