I Packed my Bag // Part One

Today's the day! I am leaving for my 2.5 month trip to the US!!

A Girl that loves clothes packing light....is that possible? I keep telling myself I will be buying things over there but I just NEED it. ☺

The clothes in my suitcase will become a series over the next 2 months. In my next post I want to share all the clothes that I packed in my suitcase.

And then I'll show you my mix & match outfits.

Do you tend to overpack or underpack?

  1. Ooh, this looks like a fun series! Have a safe journey, Iris!
    I tend to overpack. I like to be prepared. ;)

  2. I always pack too many clothes and bring home numerous items unworn!

    Have a wonderful trip - it will give you a chance to relax and unwind.

    I look forward to hearing about your adventures and, no doubt, new clothes bought in the US!

    1. I never have unworn items because I love wearing different things and get bored rather quickly with my suitcase close....Last time I was here I only was here 1.5 months and I was starting to hate my clothes! :P

  4. I definitely overpack! But for my trip this summer (USA too) I've drawn all my outfits for each day so that hopefully everything will be used. :)

    1. I pack with the goal to mix and match and randomly pick items each morning. :)

  5. Ha ha, there is a joke in our family that noone knows how to pack, because we are always forgetting things!! :p
    I usually, when I pack, imagine each day and walk through what I will need each day.
    By the way.... I thought you lived in the US! Where do you live? And where will you be staying? Have a safe travel!

  6. I overpack, and then I remove stuff before the actual day of the trip, use it, and forget to put it back, so I usually leave behind something I really wanted. I have the worst of both worlds! I'm going to Paris for a month this summer, and I'm planning on making a list of all the things I'll be doing and figure out what outfits I want to wear for each event and writing it down. Or sketching it sounds like a good idea too. I'm one of those people who doesn't mind wearing things over, as long as it's a good outfit, so I'm sure I'll be doing that too.

    Have fun in the U.S. and keep us tuned!

    1. Paris!!!! Never been there myself and I live in Europe! When I know I am packing something I forbid myself to wear it....especially when it's close to packing time.

      And I do wear things over and over again if I love the outfit.
