In my next post, I hope to share some different outfits that could be made with the tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories that I picked out. For now, I wanted to share one strategy for packing that is helpful if you are flying or traveling by car.
I pack most of my clothes in my larger suitcase. Notice how I packed my hat. I turned it upside down and filled it with some of my under clothes (tank tops and bike shorts that are not pictured above). This way the hat keeps its shape and also maximizes the amount of room I have in my bag. The plastic bag contains shoes. The bag keeps them from getting your clothes dirty. My necklaces are placed in a clear makeup bag.

Toiletries are on the bottom, in a separate bag like this or sometimes the hanging bags. These kind of plastic or nylon bags are nice because if something leaks a little, it will still protect most of your clothes and other items. If you're really worried about it, there's always Ziplock bags. Tucked along the sides are a change of clothes or two, including pajamas. On the top, I stack my makeup, flat iron, hair dryer, and any other tools I might need to do my hair and makeup. The bag I pack these items in sometimes varies, but I always use it in pretty much the same way. If I'm flying, I'll usually put the toiletries in my larger bag so I can make it through security without having them confiscated.
