Packing Perfectly

KISS: Keep it simple, sister. Avoid too many buckles, laces, belts etc. esp. at the airport. 

Stick with one color story: keep solids and patterns in same color family for mix and match ease

What to wear on the plane: Comfy but not schleppy. Think cozy chic. 

It's a numbers game: count number of different outfits you'll need in advance

Mentally dress yourself: for each event/day of your vacation and write them down so you know you've covered your bases when you start to pack

One Two Punch: one or two pieces of jewelry will make your outfit for a night on the town 

This is how we roll: pack rolled socks in your sneaks to save space 

Adapt well: do research on what version of adapter is needed for electronic devices
