Getting packed to go visit family.
The weather is warmer there with 40’s at night, low 70’s during the day. :sunny:
I have such a smug sense of accomplishment right now with my packing though! :P I’m bringing a small carry on. It’s on rollers thankfully. I bought it at Daiso last year. It’s extremely light; so it’s easy for me to do a solo, carry-on only trip with it.
So given luggage size, weather, and activities I’ll be partaking in on my visit, I had to really think of the most efficient, but limited, outfits to bring. It turned out to be rather easy though! :!?: Now that my closet shares a similar “base style” and everything is already whittled down to my favorite items, I was able to come up with packing just 6 pieces of clothing for 12+ different outfit options. More if I count switching tights options!
I’m bringing -
- H&M short-sleeve short deer print dress
- Yesstyle long-sleeve long floral print dress
- Madewell cable knit sweater
- Mango denim shirt
- Urban Outfitters wine ribbon-tie shorts
- Madewell thick knit coat
I’m also bringing my warm black tights, sheer black heart tights, a woven belt and then my plain black flats.
Usually when I travel I end up packing either 5 different outfits all needing their own separate pieces or I just give up and pack jeans and random tops and dress completely unlike myself the whole time and basically hate everyone and everything (lol.) :ng: This time I not only saved room but LOVE all the outfits these items can create. :) Simple looks like denim top with wine shorts and washed-navy-blue thick double-breasted knit coat and black tights with black flats. OK I’m getting too detailed… :deco13: But that’s what I’m gonna wear on the flight~ :P
Makeup bag and various stuff along the sides. Clothing pouch in the middle. The colorful clothing on top is pajamas, haha~
The fake sweets in the round container are cat toys! My parents have lots of cats.
My luggage looks like this! Using those “Shinzi Katoh” pouches I blogged about before. Hopefully this will help resolve my usual fun of having TSA go through all my stuff so randomly that they can’t get the luggage to close again! :drops: I noticed the more I used pouches to separate stuff the faster the inspection goes. So we’ll see; grand experiment. Ha! XD
Oh and speaking of travel things from Yesstyle, this was their freebie included in my recent order …
It’s a silicone luggage tag!!
