Travel packing can be overwhelming, so let me get to it. 

If these tips don’t eliminate your stress, hire me to pack for you. 


  1. Know where you’re going and think about how you want to want to feel while there. Be inspired by the culture of the location, national or international. 
  2. At least a week ahead of time pull out all the clothes you enjoy wearing that fit the vibe of where you’re going. Bring out more clothes than you’re going to need.
  3. Create entire outfits with what you’ve pulled. Tops, pants, dresses, socks, underwear, bathing suits, cover-ups, shoes, accessories – all of it.  
  4. Try each outfit on or don’t. I don’t because I know my closet well, but it may help you to ensure you really like the way an outfit looks and feels.
  5. Make a pile to wash what you need to wash and decide if you need to purchase anything new. 
  6. Add 1-2 extra entire outfits and a few miscellaneous pieces. This gives you the flexibility to get dressed based on how you want to feel that day. 
  7. I highly recommend packing cubes, folding garment bags & a jewelry roll.
  8. My husband rolls his clothes, which somehow worked well for our carry-on-only situation when we went to Indonesia; but since then, I’ve found that laying my clothes flat is a space-saver. If you have a good trick, let me know!
  9. Don’t forget to take risks! Knowing you’re never going to see the people you encounter on your travels again can give you the courage to get creative and try new things. 

Travel is special. Make your outfits special ?.

If packing for travel is still overwhelming, hire me. I create entire LookBooks with outfits for every day & night using the clothes in your closet or new pieces I find for your specific travel needs.
