This week has been quite hectic between work, holiday parties (not that I’m complaining) and my upcoming trip to LA for a couple days to visit some of my closest friends. Being the mature adult that I am, I attempted to start packing 2 whole days in advance!! (rather than my usual 15 mins before I have to go to the airport which almost always results in me forgetting either my toothbrush, glasses, phone charger, or some combination of all three). Typically, I’m a horribly inefficient packer and attempt to bring all of my favorite pieces with me on a trip which usually results in no actual wearable outfits. Therefore I decided to set some small goals for myself to improve my packing efficiency. Today’s packing goal: pre-plan looks and find items that work with more than one outfit.
Options for Day
Left: Madewell dress, Jack jacket, Zara scarf, Forever 21 bangles, c/o Poshlocket bracelet
Right: 2b fur jacket, Freebird shirt (purchased via StitchFix), Free People Jeans, Forever 21 necklace
Shoes for both: Seychelles boots
Options for Night
Left: Arden B dress (previously worn here), Forever 21 necklace, bracelets and ring
Right: Madewell shirt, H&M pants and bracelet, Forever 21 necklace
Shoes for both: c/o Nine West heels
Of course this is only the clothes portion and I still have quite a bit of packing to do (like before mentioned toothbrush, glasses and phone charger), but I think this is a vast improvement over my previous packing skills!
