I Suck At Packing

Well, if you're reading this it means that I learned how to schedule a blog post all on my own because I am officially on vacation. YAY!!!  This is the only one I have scheduled though, so you might not be hearing from me for a little while. But don't worry, I'm sure I'll be in good hands with, you know, the sun and all.

Can I just take a minute to say that I suck at packing? 

I started off with this little pile and by the time I was finished it had quadrupled in size. 
I'm the kind of girl who takes 10 different outfits out home to visit her parents and ends up not changing out of her pajamas the entire weekend. I'm also the kind of girl who wakes up in the morning and has to try on her entire closet before she can decide what she's "in the mood to wear" that day. But I'll never learn though, because nine times out of ten, that mood is usually a comfy one; skinny jeans and a loose top. 

So you can imagine the difficulty I had trying to narrow down my entire closet into one suitcase.  I don't think I've ever worked so hard at anything in my entire life. #vacationprobs? I'm really hoping the weather cooperates with my selection because, if not, it looks like I'll have some shopping to do. Maybe I should have narrowed my selection down even further! ;)

Are you horrible for packing like me, or are you a light packer?  

Light packers, teach me your ways for next time!

And I'm offfff......

  1. I'm a light packer! But it usually ends up being a fiasco because I won't have enough clothes with me! haha Hope Florida is amazing!

  2. im a light packer. i'm going to miami in may and will only be bringing a carry-on because i can't be bothered to check anything.

    i plan out what we're going to be doing and then i pick out one outfit for the event. then pjs for the whole time, 1 casual outfit and what i wear to the airport is what i'll wear home. all in all, a weekend will be 4 outfits and 2 pairs of shoes :)

  3. I always pack more than I need but I have gotten better than I used to be. Have a blast!

  4. Congrats on figuring out how to schedule a blog post :) I hope you're having a fabulous vacation.

  5. This is too funny because I just did a post on light packing!! You can see it here:


  6. I'm a horrible packer. I'm totally OCD and always think that I'm going to need the most random things while I'm away (that I never actually need, of course)so my suitcase is always over weight.

    Sometimes I think I should just 'forget' a bunch of things to have a really good excuse for shopping! haha

    Have a great vacation - think of us stuck back in dreary Canada while you soak up the sun. And bring the sunshine back with you please!

  7. hahaha! That is TOTALLY me, too! I'm totally the girl who packs a billion things and only ends up changing once or something like that. hahaha! Have fun, girl! Can't wait to hear how it went!

  8. YAY vacation! I suck at packing too. If it's any longer than a few days, you can forget about one suitcase!

  9. I am a horrible packer, I pack for the unexpected... and then end up with 3 bags and a carry on LOL. xx

  10. I'm a light packer! I'm going on a three week vacation and everything I need, I could fit in a school backpack!

  11. So I'm backing tracking on your blog and catching up, but I can't wait to hear and see this vacation goodness! I seriously suck at packing too. We are leaving Friday night for Panama so I'm working on it this week, but seriously it stresses me out. I'll be buying a bottle of wine on the way home...
