I am currently in St. Louis for 10 days and boy is it hot! Anyways, packing for me is always an ordeal and a half. I try to limit myself, make lists of what to pack and what I need, but somehow I always seem to throw my lists out the window about half way through. I convince myself that I need to pack extra just in case something happens. Well, I tried to be a little better this time. Here is what I [over] packed for St. Louis-
10 pairs of shorts
15 tops (sleeveless, short sleeves, etc.)
5 dresses (1 for a wedding, others because I felt they were necessary)
1 fourth of July outfit
2 bathing suits
Too many pairs of shoes
Undergarments, PJ’s & Socks
Cosmetics, tooth brush, cleanser etc.
Flat Iron & Hair Dryer
Like I said, I really have a problem. However, I am never unprepared, so I suppose that is a plus!
I also brought a carryon with my laptop, iPad, camera and all of the cords that go with it! As well as a few extra things for blogging etc.
It all somehow fit in here (and was under 50 lbs!)
Oh, I also brought some jewelry with me, here is the little case I brought it in. It is great because it never gets tangled when I use it!
My mom and I also like to tie pink ribbon around our bags so that we can easily identify them as ours, and other people don’t mistake them four theirs.
Are you like my when you [over] pack, or do you stick to the list?
