Last Minute Packing Tips

David got finished with work sooner than expected the other day when we were leaving for Charlotte and we hit the road a bit sooner than expected. Translation: I had to pack really fast. So I wanted to share my go-to packing approach when having to pack up and hit the road in 30 minutes….

  1. check the weather of where you’ll be traveling. this is always the first thing and most important.
  2. pick a color pallet – if I’m heading to the beach I’ll do blue and white or pink and white whereas for our trip this weekend I went with the colors cream, black and white. This guarantees I’ll be able to mix and match and get the most out of my suitcase wardrobe. (Insert flamenco dancer emoji!)
  3. Pack favorites. If I don’t wear it at home, I’m not going to wear it on the road. I used to pack things thinking “welll maybe I’ll wear it THIS time…” no. Packing all of my “go-to” favorite items works better every time.
  4. Once on the road, don’t stress. I always remind myself that this is America….If I DID forget something I can, most likely, get that item at Walgreens or Nordstrom. So once I leave my house I try to take a deep breath and just enjoy the trip.

bag (looks like calf hair but is canvas and I LOVE it – 2 years and going strong) // shoes // jeans (old, zara) similar here // tank (old- love this tank that I wore traveling here) // jean jacket in “dark denim” – LOVE this jean jacket and it’s $23 // sunglasses // lip color
