Let’s Look-Inside our Suitcases

 Hey Hey!

Shay and I have teamed up for another episode of Let’s Look.  This month we’re sharing what’s inside our suitcase.  Good news for you!  Tab and I are headed out on an adults-only trip {with Shay and Andrew} later this week.  We’re headed somewhere Tab and I have never been and we’re PUMPED about seeing and doing it all!

You guys know I’m not the most organized person in general, but I really do try to be super organized when I travel.  It just makes things so much easier!  Often times I think my brain just doesn’t even think of things the way super organized people think-so believe me when I say that I’ve asked Shay seven billion questions about packing.  

Like I said, an organized suitcase can make a vacation so much better so this trip should be AMAZING based on my packing skills this week.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s a peek at a few of the items I’m taking…
I scored both these cover-ups from our FAVORITE, AMAZON {Pink and turquoise-but says “green” online}!  And the beach hat came from here.

Two of my most comfy pajamas made the cut for this trip-again, BOTH from AMAZON!  {Navy stripe-sold out but similar and palm print}

A few other things packed in my suitcase…
1. Tank because SUMMER!
2. Fun shorts-I saw these and instantly knew I needed them!
3. This top has been on repeat all spring/summer long. {Similar}
4. These shorts were a hit on our Disney World trip too.
5.  Pineapples are to summer as a leaf is to fall.  Isn’t that right?
6. One romper that can be dressed up or down.
7. Another top that’s been on constant rotation.

 Can you tell I’m not quite finished packing yet??

 Last summer I started using these packing cubes.  When our entire family goes on a trip, then each person has their own color.  Since this trip is just the two of us, I used the packing cubes that were sized best for our things.  If you can tell from the picture, I stuffed swim cover ups and suits into my beach hats to keep everything looking nice once we arrive.

There’s a little peek inside my suitcase.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Next month-we’re sharing a typical day!  Hope to see you here!

    I'm long waisted also, and was thrilled when you purchased the embroidered top from Amazon because then I knew what size I needed to get for torso length! Do you wash/dry it any differently from other shirts? I have found that mine shrunk in length and I'm super disappointed about it! Hope your trip is the best!

    I totally dried it and was so upset at myself afterwards. I will probably have to buy another one.
