Packing. by violet

I am a horrible packer. I pack too much, I pack the wrong thing, I forget things. So I thought I would take advantage of this growth opportunity and master the suitcase.

I created a couple of different lists. The first is just a master list of what I think that I might need. Then I brainstormed a few outfits that I thought would be good based on the weather and what I we would be doing.

Last night I laid everything out, then took 24 hours to evaluate my choices. When J.P. saw my handy work, he laughed and said it looked like enough clothes for 15 days. Tonight, I went back through and paired a few things back.

As it turns out, I’ve never had an easier time getting everything in my suitcase.  Even with room left over for the sure-to-be-adorable clothes I'll buy while traveling.

I’m sure that I forget something – I always do. But I’m hoping that whatever it is, I can get it in New York.

I leave you in the capable hands of Orange for a week. When I come back you’ll hear even more about the trip, in case you haven’t yet.

  1. Where did you get that fancy Eagle Creek neck pillow? It looks very comfy for a redeye flight.

  2. Why, funny you should ask, my wonderful and amazing boyfriend, J.P. picked that up. We'll see how it works on our redeye flight tonight.

  3. I just saw this NY Times slideshow this morning, otherwise I totally would have sent it your way earlier - How to Pack for 10 Days in a Carry On.

    Have fun!!!
