I've previously mentioned how much I've been bouncing around lately. I've been rolling around my tiny tiara-patterned duffle and practically living out of the darn thing for the last month. During that time--actually, before--I've taught myself to pack much lighter than I used to. I was always the girl hauling around a HUGE suitcase... like, the biggest size they make.
At first I was nervous about lugging it around with me everywhere, but now she's like my best friend!
And now I don't have cross my fingers and peek out one eye when Ian assists me in maneuvering the darn thing onto the scale at the airport.
I wish I had a five-step process for packing light, but all I've got is:
Pack only what you need.
And don't be afraid to wear something more than once.
I used to think that I had to pack "options" so I could dress off my mood. Welp, turns out when I know what I'm wearing (because I'm short on options) I'm usually in the mood to wear what I've planned.
I've got alllllllll thisss...
My make-up (and ziploc baggies)...
My dresses for dinners...
All up in here...!!!
And since I recruited the husband to pack light we are saving $80!
(I'm sooo against paying for things I shouldn't have to pay for. Especially when they are overpriced and you are already paying hundreds of dollars for the plane ticket.)
Oh, and I found Michael Phelps in my closet...
And this is just me.
I'm off to Cabo in the morning, but check back for an Awkward and Awesome post tomorrow and a guest post on Friday!
