packing up

packing for trips is one of my favorite things to do. 
i never understood how people could wait until an hour before & throw their things into a suitcase...mostly because i savor the process of setting things aside in my closet, picking out ready-to-go outfits...and uh, this is embarrassing...but coming up with concepts for the outfits -- like the "rainy day in a cafe" outfit, or the "ferry ride" outfit. 

am i just an odd bird? or does anyone else love packing as much as i do?

  1. I do that, too! Of course, I also make lists first, organize the list, and then set about packing. :)

  2. That is awesome that you think up concepts! I love making list and I always have to pack options. In case I no longer want to wear a certain outfit..Lol

  4. I actually hate packing for trips because I have no idea how I am going to be feeling that day and what if I don't have the right outfit for it? Like what if I packed pants and then I all I want to wear is a skirt. So maybe you could just come over and pack for me.

  6. I love packing also! I usually pack several days in advance while all my friends wait until the last minute. I never understood how they could do that -- what if they need something? I love the idea of a "rainy day in a cafe" outfit!

  7. I know what you mean! I am very much someone who packs in advance and tries to anticipate the style mood I may be in while away!

  10. I hate packing for tips! I always need to write a list and is very complicated to carry everything with me :(

    Enjoy it!

  11. I wish when I packed it looked this lovely. I tend to overpack since I'm not always sure how weather and temp will be which makes unpacking a nightmare. I love all these photos. Very romantic. Have a great trip!

  13. I don't really enjoy packing...but I have to pack for my husband and kid too. If it weren't for that...I would probably enjoy it :) Love those shoes!

  14. I love packing too. Not just for trips, but packing up our house recently has been really enjoyable. Some boxes I have packed with specific things that I know will be fun and pretty to unpack. It's inspiring.

    P.S. Love all your clothing pieces. The green polka dot is my fave. :)

  15. I used to be a last-minute packer...but then I realized how fun packing is!
    I've actually got a trip coming up this weekend that I have to pack for. My method is to look up the weather and plan an outfit for each day....depending on the weather! haha

  20. Girl I totally pack just like you! I love packing a week in advance, create ensembles for every occasion, and maybe even check the forecast obsessively leading up to departure in case I may need to change an outfit or two. Love this a lot.
