Does Packing Ever Get Easier, And "Wear" You Can Find My Travel Looks!

Does Packing Ever Get Easier, And "Wear" You Can Find My Travel Looks!

Do you feel you are a horrible packer? And by "horrible" I mean, it does not matter how frequently you travel, you still overpack? You would think after being a "seasoned" traveler for the last 2 years, I would have this down pat. 

Umm, yeah...RIGHT. 

I wonder if it is this fear of missing out? That "OMG what if I want to wear this outfit and I DON'T have these specific shoes?" Half the time, I don't wear most of what I bring because I end up buying a whole bunch of stuff while I am away. Again, fear of missing out...what happens if they don't have said items when I get back to Baltimore? Crazy, I know! 

This latest trip to France was not that way - only handbags and a wallet - but, when I travel to California, FORGET IT. I really should pack 2 sets of clothing, some workout/athleisure attire, 2 pairs of shoes and call it a day. Side Note: If you cannot already tell, I am not good at repurposing my pieces. I end up sitting or kneeling on my suitcase to close it when I leave anyway, praying that I get someone nice at Southwest's Curbside Check-In who will waive the heavy bag fee. 

Before I left for my European excursion, my Mom really encouraged me to write down, exactly, what I wore. While more for future reference, I thought it would be a great idea to share, here, as well! If you are planning on traveling - in the U.S., Europe, or wherever your heart desires - I hope this will be of a little help.

My outfits were based on a food/wine retreat, with workouts, lots of walking, biking, and hiking sprinkled throughout. I was there for a total of 7 days, 6 nights, with the weather ranging in the low 60's during the day, and upper 40's, low 50's, in the morning (always with a cool breeze). I will say, this is not too terribly off from what I would take with me to California too. 

Enjoy love!


P.S. While I like to pay full price - please note the sarcasm - there are MANY of these items that are on sale right now! Major score! I have linked those for you; the items not linked means they were "so last season" or it was repurposed on another day so the link is only showing once! Muah!

Almonds and champagne will only go so far!
