Hello I’m a little bit giddy as I write this post. I’m off to Kauai Its my 25 wedding anniversary and I think if we have made it this far we should really celebrate. So I thought I’d show you how I pack for a trip.
Its kind of funny but I like to put everything into outfits. that way I know I have everything I need to complete a look. In this case swimwear and cover ups and good hiking shoes. lol If I have extra shirts or pants that goes on the other side. I know it seems weird but when you unpack at your hotel it is just easier to see all the outfits done and put together instead of trying to figure out if you brought the sweater that goes with that outfit.
There are a million ways to pack to prevent wrinkles and such, I try to stay away from wrinkly clothes when I travel I don’t want to have to worry about ironing. But if you do have say a linen skirt that gets kind of wrinkly wrap the skirt around the outfit it goes with so that it doesn’t crease same goes with linen pants.
I also hate hate hate straps sticking out of my clothes, (was that a little harsh) in my closet or in my suit case. Here is how I solve that problem. First I lay out the tank top or swimsuit and fold in half. The neck and straps towards the hem.
Shoes are always on the bottom or in another bag with travel gear. Ok that’s not all my shoes and yes I did have to make room for my honeys Keens but a girl must sacrifice for her man.
Books and magazines go into my carry on along with treats and my emergency kit which is always with me especially when I am at the pool or beach! It has very essential stuff like chapsitck, sunblock, cards, gum, a sharpie, fingernail file, lipstick, hand sanitizer, pins, elastic for my hair, ear buds, and money. This little bag has saved me more than once. I also bring a small emergency kit with pills, Band-Aids, thread needles ect.
