Stilettos and Diapers: Lets get packing.

Lets get packing.

Organized packing. Is there such a thing? Notsomuch.

We are going to NY for Thanksgiving and packing up just for a few days becomes quite the project for 3 people.
(I have no idea how y'all with more kids do it)

I usually throw all my favorites in a suitcase and end up without the basics and with tons of leftovers. This time, I decided to pack outfits.
This way I have everything I need for each day, and will hopefully avoid being packed up to our eyeballs for the entire drive.
See the shorts and tights? Luuuurve this look. Only thing is, I am scared that I can't pull it off. I guess we'll find out because I didn't bring any backups! Hehehe.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This gave me an idea! I'm packing myself and it's been just very uncomfortable.

  3. I am SUCH an over-packer! I'll try the outfit thing, but then I will end up tossing in several miscellaneous items "just in case." I'm better on a plane where I am limited to weight, but I'm still far from a light packer!

    Have a great trip and a happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Love all of those outfits!
    I am a horrible over-packer! The hubs went out of town for 2 weeks on business & I flew in the second week. My one week bag had more clothes than his holdind two.

    You always have to be prepared, right?

  5. Enjoy your trip! My Thanksgiving packing will consist of sweats and comfy pj's since we're just going to the inlaws and the only reason I'll be getting out will be for some Black Friday shopping :)

  8. I am always just packing favorites!! I need to get on board with just packing outfits, but I always feel like...what if I don't want to wear that outfit on that day? Maybe a back-up or two would be ok :)

    Have a wonderful time!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  9. Cute outfits. I overpack like CRAZY! I can't just pick outfits, though I should probably try in the future considering the kids need more stuff than I can even think about. I'm curious to see your shorts/tights combo- I think it's cute too, but I'm not sure if I could pull it off. Hubby would probably make fun of me.

  11. packing outfits is the SMART way of packing! I often do what you said and just throw all my favorites into bag and hope for the best lol! But geeze, I should really get on board with being a grown up and packing like one yeah? It's funny too b/c when I pack for my boys I always only pack outfits for them, so why don't I do the same for myself?
    I love the shorts/tights look, I am SURE you'll rock it! Have a happy thanksgiving!!

  17. great outfits!! I am sure you looked amazing every day. I always over pack & you're right too much of the stuff I don't need and not enough of the essentials. Maybe I will try this next time :-)

    I just found your blog and I am glad I did- i'm following now and looking forward to reading more.
