Packing for Vacation


Hello friends!

As you’re reading this, I’m whizzing away, with Elizabeth, to Michigan to visit my family and celebrate my sister’s wedding!  It will be so delightful.  And I’m looking forward to the Midwest summer weather.

The nice thing about traveling means you’ll be receiving a few posts around what I packed for my trip, including the carry on/diaper bag and my make up bag.

But, today, I thought I would show you what I have packed for outfits.

Thanks to my recent 30 Outfits in 30 Days Challenge, it was fairly easy to piece together 11 outfits.  So if you followed that series, you’ll see some repeat outfits.

So here’s what I’m packing!20140714-200232-72152867.jpg

These 2o items (this includes the diaper bag, not pictured) make AT LEAST 11 outfits.  I’ll be there for a total of 14 days, but I’ll be able to do some laundry while there.  All of these items easily fit in a carry on suitcase, with room to spare for toiletries and hair tools and the unmentionables.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • 2 Jackets (Denim & Navy Blazer)
  • 4 Shirts (1 Long Sleeve, 1 Sleeveless, 2 Short Sleeve)
  • 1 Cardigan
  •  2 Pants (1 Shorts, 1 Skinny Jeans)
  • 1 Skirt
  • 1 Dress
  • 3 pairs Shoes (Sandals, Brown Wedges, and Dress Shoes)
  • 2 Necklaces
  • 1 Watch
  • 1 large leather Purse
  • 1 Scarf

This should be more than enough outfits to get me through the family fun, church, and wedding festivities.

Here are all the outfit options!

  1. I do one of these mix & match posts every time I pack a suitcase – so fun, and so handy for knowing you actually have some good outfits packed! Love seeing your options – fun color palette, and that peter pan collar tee is adorable. (Also, I love Michigan too! That’s where I’m from…)
