Either Hubby or I are always traveling somewhere – so much so that we have a carry-on rolling suitcase that has basically taken up permanent residence in our bedroom, just waiting to be packed. Sometimes it doesn’t even have the chance to get unpacked before it’s needed again. I last used the little suitcase for my impromptu Girls Weekend a few weeks ago – we did manage to take it down to the basement to be put back into storage with the rest of our luggage but it only made it to the bottom of the stairs before I had to fetch it again; this time, for Blissdom!
Ok wow. That was an entire paragraph about a suitcase. And not even a Louis Vuitton. Curious.
I’m taking off bright and early in the morning for Nashville and, in true Fergie Fashion, I have nary an item packed. But! We all know how much I like to torture myself by procrastinating and packing in my head, waiting until the last minute to get my act together. I live for the pain of last-minute packing! The stress! The action-packed hunt for the camera charger!
But if humankind does nothing at all, it evolves. And so I am proud to say that I have learned from the insanity of trips past and I am ready – suitcase open on the bed – a full 24 hours before I am to be on a place (ok, make that 22 hours, but whatever) and getting my packing on. Progress!
Since I’m only going for 2 days (trying to cut down on the time away from the family), I really shouldn’t have much to pack. But alas, we all know that’s not the case. I’ll need at least 5 outfits between day and evening events and travel. Then there’re fitness activities (another set of clothes), gadgets, and the usual trip stuff you’ve gotta pack. Here’s a sampling of the plan (definitely based on what I already have in my closet!):
Day Outfit #1
Day Outfit #2
Evening Outfit #1
So now that I’ve spent an hour playing around in Polyvore, let me go and actually add said items to my suitcase. I’m still waaay ahead of the game – 20 hours to go!
