5 Essentials Packing Tips

1. Buy luggage with multiple inner compartments and pockets to help keep all of your things organized. There is nothing worse than getting to your final destination and having to sift through a mess in your luggage. I love these Ricardo Beverly Hills bags not only because they are super chic on the outside and have 4 wheels so they are easy to move, but because the insides are filled with a ton of great compartments. There is a strap and buckle to keep your clothes and shoes in place, a place to put hangers if you are bringing hanging clothes, and lots of little zipper compartments for jewelry beauty products and two big pockets for things like a blow dryer and flat iron, etc.

2.  Pack your shoes first. My rule of thumb is to always pack my shoes first so that they line the bottom of the bag. It’s easier to throw your clothes on top of shoes and this way you are not throwing dirty shoes on top of clean clothes. Put your shoes in on their sides like your would put them in a shoe box. And try to plan looks around one pair of flats, one heel and one boot. It really simplifies your packing.

3.  Put all of your under garments like underwear, socks, tights and bras in a side pocket so they stay together and organized. There is a great pocket for these in the Ricardo San Marcos bags you see in the post.

4.  Put beauty products in a separate compartment and either put them in a large plastic bag or have some sort of plastic separating your beauty products from your clothes. There is nothing worse than having leaking products when you unpack your stuff. Especially if you are someone like me who packs all.the.things. when it comes to beauty.

5.  Plan outfits ahead of time and pack accordingly. I know a lot of people overpack and that was me before I had the baby, but now the night before I leave, I check the weather in the city I am traveling to and then count the days and plan specific looks for each day. It really cuts down on excess packing and you can figure out what you can mix and max while you are there. I also love leaving the hanging clothes on thin hangers from Target to make unpacking so much more seamless and organized. I love that the Ricardo bags have a whole separate zipper compartment with an area for hanging clothes that also helps keep them wrinkle free. And when you overpack, roll it all and bring a travel steamer so you can make it all look nice again!

I hope these little tips make your holiday travel just a bit easier. I know how stressful travel can be with delays, long travel times and time changes. We just traveled with Smith last week to Kentucky and had a few delays and snafus ourselves, but we made it and it was so worth it in the end to be able to spend time with family and friends. Let me know where you are headed to this travel season in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today – shop my luggage and look below:
