With a big trip only days away, and a to-do list about a mile long, packing seems to have fallen to the wayside. My mom used to wave a packing checklist, at least ten pages long, around the house weeks in advance of a vacation. I tend to be more visual (and clearly, last-minute). So I put together a packing list of summer essentials.
I try to limit myself: one (two) pairs of sandals, one pair of sneakers (in case I get the urge to become athletic overnight), one pair of high heels (though I’m thinking these may be wholly unnecessary for a trip to the desert), a go-anywhere bootie, day purse and night purse, a few essential accessories (need room to buy more during my travels!), and plenty of clothes that layer and mix-n-match well. (Then I shove the rest of my stuff in hubby’s suitcase and hope he doesn’t notice until we’re at least halfway across the country.)
What’s your go-to travel outfit? Are you a light packer or an over-packer?
