Spring Break: Chronicles of an Over-Packer
I’ve traded exams and cold weather for boba and sunshine! Considering the last time I went to California is an experience I was too young to remember, it’s time I paid it a visit. My family and I went for a quick 6-day vacation, that being said, I decided to tightly pack my carry-on luggage to avoid checking in a bag. Fitting 6 days into a carry on is a true feat, especially coming from the queen of chronic over packing. Essentially, the light packing led to this outfit. I’m not exactly sure if I love the look, but I decided to wear my thickest and most space-consuming items (mainly the jeans and shoes). So here’s how I packed for the week:
- Tops: 6 Tops | 2 Sweaters | 2 Cardigans | 1 T-shirt
- Bottoms: 2 Skirts | 2 Pair of shorts| 1 Pair of leggings | 1 Romper
- Accessories: 2 Scarves
- Shoes: 1 Pair of Flats | 1 Pair of Sandals
- Misc.: 10 Pairs of Underwear | 2 Makeup bags | Toiletries
With such a small luggage, I still over packed and didn’t even get a chance to wear all that I brought. I always pack my suitcase by folding a piece of clothing, then rolling it. It truly saves a ton of space. Everything else that you may think I would have needed to bring was in my “Personal” carry-on bag.
How do you dress when you’ve got limited space and a plane ride ahead of you? Oh, and here’s a lesson: Avoid wearing anything with a heel when running through the airport at 6am…
As for the first day of my trip itself, we didn’t do much. We got drove around, got lost, and got dinner with family.
Don’t forget to cuff your jeans with your booties! ♡
