If you have been following my blog for some time now, you may already know how much Emil and I love short weekend getaways. Something about stepping away from your normal routine and changing things up with a short trip recharges and gives me new perspective as I’m always inspired by the places I visit.
Since we travel quite a bit, packing and unpacking is a constant in my life. I used to overpack like an insane person, but as of late I have learned to pack better, and for that I thank my new travel companion – Bobby Luggage Set I got at Macy’s recently. It gives me just enough room to pack everything I need. For example, I love packing all my clothing and shoes in the adorable purple carry-on and all my beauty and skincare products into the duffle bag. The handbag ends up being a perfect place for my laptop. And voila! I have everything I need in a pretty compact set. Over time I learned that it’s better to have a few smaller luggage pieces rather than one huge one as it helps you stay organized and makes it so much easier to pack and unpack. Not to mention the fact that carry-ons tend to be much lighter and easier to maneuver than huge suitcases.
For longer trips, like when we travel to Fashion Week for example, I certainly do tend to go for full-sized suitcases, like this Joy Mangano XL suitcase with spinball wheels, but for the most part, the Bobby Luggage Set is what we travel with. The carry-on and the duffel bag are super roomy, so I have no problem fitting all my necessities into it!
What about you guys, what are your packing tips and tricks?
Special thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for partnering with me on this post.
