I get pretty jazzed about packing a suitcase. I'm an organizing, editing, clothing enthusiast and I love making kits for things! Including my vacation. Feeling overwhelmed by getting started? Tired of lugging half your wardrobe with you on holidays?? Here's a few Funky Fresh tips for packing like an all-star.
1. List Your Itinerary
As with most projects, I like to start with the BIG picture and work my way down to the details. Make a quick mental or physical list of your trip activities. Throw down an outfit on the bed for each one. Then pair these with the extras you'll need, like shoes, bras and jewellery.
My itinerary list looked like this:
- Road trip
- Family visit
- Poolside loungin'
2. Rein In Your Color Palette
Try to stick to a general color palette for your outfits so you can easily mix and match pieces. Another way to think of it, is choosing "a look" for your trip. Take another peep at the outfits you've got with this in mind. I'll admit this was easier than usual for me as I've just created a summer capsule wardrobe, seasonal color palette included. (More on that soon!)
Blue jeans were a comfy must for me. Plus some white and gray tanks for keeping me cool in this hot hot heat. And my new red heels were the pièce de résistance of my fancy wedding outfit. Denim. White. Pops of red. Black. Bit of tan.
Look fly, stay comfy and have fun on your holidays! Bon voyage, my little packing expert.
