Packing for a Trip

Does anyone else plan out daily outfits and then try them all on before packing them?

Does anyone else get stressed out trying to think of, and plan for, all the "what ifs"? What if you get food on your shirt? What if you sweat all day in an outfit (Hey! In this weather that is totally possible)? What if?!

Does anyone else have a hard time limiting your shoe selection for a trip?

We are about to head out of town for a quick trip to Dallas. We'll only be there for two nights and I'm already planning out my outfits in my head. Ok, ok, I did try on a few outfits last night before I got into bed. I think I've actually worked it out to where I'll only need one pair of shoes. Shocking, I know.

How do you plan and pack your wardrobe for vacation? Any tips or tricks?


  1. You're hilarious.
    I'm so not a 'girly girl' so I don't plan out outfits or shoes (Heck I only have 3 pair!)

    Thanks for the giggle though :)

  2. This is so funny- on a short trip, I'm much like you packing all the what-ifs. But when I travel internationally, I'm a super-light packer. I just plan outfits that are re-wearable and coordinate so they are my just in case clothes. I packed more for a five day trip to Utah than three weeks in France! Lol.

    Have a fun trip!

  3. I used to be an over-packer... I once brought 6 pairs of shoes for a 3 day trip... but I only wore 1 pair! That made me realize that I pack WAY too much!
    ..but I don't have any tips.. I could pretty much wear the same flip-flops with any outfit now...

    Have fun!

  4. Back when I actually left the house, I did the same thing. I love clothes. And shoes. I have no tips or tricks, I just wanted you to know that you aren't crazy (or you are the same crazy that I am.....) Haha!

  5. Ohh sister, I am queen of packing lists. Its definitely key and yes, I do plan out outfits. I am ridiculous.... glad you are the same way!
