Packing
January 15, 2012

This week I’m headed to ALT Summit.  Am I excited?  Oh maybe just a little.  Ok, quite a lot.

I’ve never been a way ahead of time packer.  My philosophy is to pack the night before and fit in as much as you possibly can.  Because, you never know what you just might need.  And, of course, every single time I find that I don’t need half of any of it.  Yet, still I continue this way of packing.  Lately, I’ve been re-thinking this method as it is getting a bit exhausting when I pack for four little people and myself.

Do you plan out every outfit for a particular day or just bring along a few favorite outfits and then decide that day which to wear?  I tend to do more of the latter but I’m trying very hard, at least for this trip, to plan out each day + night.  Sweet Kelly of Design Crush  came up with this super cool Wardrobe Planner + Packing List specifically for ALT.

And the above, pretty great right [I'd wear any and all of that]?  I’m loving this blog called Travelista.  Her foolproof travel outfit has me fixated on what to wear come Wednesday.

What do you like to wear when you travel?  I tend to like leggings and I like to wear flats but I always have to bring sox because my feet always freeze in the plane.  I’m also big fan of a scarf to wrap up in and the perfect bag is high priority on my list.  What about you?

AND are you coming to ALT?  Tell me if you are … I’d love to meet you!

How fun! I always pack ahead… Each outfit and accessories! I don’t want to think about it when I’m there and it avoids second guessing and wasted time. Have fun!

Well, I was *trying* to pack ahead, but it just gave me more time to dig out more stuff! So now I’m going back and trying to lighten the load. I always do the same thing you mentioned–bring thousands of things and only wear three of them. :) Trying my best to be a minimalist on this trip! Can’t wait to see you in a couple of days!
