Great post, and perfect timing. I leave Saturday for a week at the beach. :) Even though we're driving vs. flying, when you have a toddler (travel crib, strollers, etc) to pack for as well, all the extra space I can manage is a huge bonus.
you have a great process for this!! very useful ideas...
KaseyThis is a great post! But...how about doing one for an Alaskan cruise! We are headed to Alaska in July for a seven day cruise. Then when we return to Seattle wr are taking three or four days to drive to Las Vegas by way of Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. Then a couple of days in Las Vegas. How is that for covering every climate? I am so stumped! Can you offer any suggestions?ThanksKathy
Love it... great ideas and cute affordable clothes. I LOVE hitting up sales towards the end of seasons. Even if I cant wear my $4 shorts at the time, its super exciting to have brand new clothes next spring / summer.
@Kathy~ It sounds like you are doing a total of 13 days (lucky!) so let's break it down by need:*cooler outdoor activities (7)*warmer outdoor activities (4)*hot indoor/outdoor (2)You'll need 4-5 bottoms, 3 shoes, 12 tops, 1 dress, windbreaker, zip-up jacket4 bottoms~ 1 pair black jeans (to dress from day to night on cruise and in Vegas; throw them on when you want to look nicer), 2 pairs convertable pants for Alaska and Yellowstone (that go from pants to capris), 1 pair of shorts for Yellowstone/ GC, 1 skirt or another pair of pants depending on what most of your activities will be like3 Shoes~ 1 dressy flat, 1 hiking/ walking, 1 fashion walking (cute and comfortable to wear on the ship/ traveling/ walking Vegas)12 Tops~ pick tops with interesting details so that you feel like you're wearing a totally different outfit each day1 Dress~ I'd go for a black dress that you can wear for a nicer dinner on a cruise then out again in Vegas.I trust this guide by Real Simple when it comes to washing my clothes so I'd expect to get at least a few wears out of the bottoms (which tend to take up the most room). I hope that helped! Have fun on your trip :).
KaseyYou are wonderful! I was just so overwhelmed! Thanks so much!Kathy
