Packing List!


This is a GREAT way I’ve found to pack necklaces without them getting tangled. Another great method is simply rolling them up in a scarf, giving enough room for each necklace to be fully wrapped around before placing another necklace (that way they are separated by a layer of fabric).


This was not a very functional way of packing. I would recommend rolling clothes up tightly and making everything very compact.


These are the scarves I took. My aunt made the stringy scarves out of teeshirts by looking up how on Pinterest. The rest of the scarves are mostly from Target. 🙂


My shoes (top to bottom): Hush puppies, columbia flats, doc martin mary janes, rocket dog flats. The Doc Martins and Hush puppies lasted me all 18 months!! Best shoes!


These are my cap sleeve shirts. I will wear these underneath other shirts or cardigans.


These are my regular shirts. Top shirts are my solid colors, bottom are my patterned shirts.


These shirts I will bring to wear over other shirts, as they are more transparent. But, they dress up outfits.


These are my quarter-length sleeved shirts as well as my warmer shirts.


These are my skirts. The ones on the side are from a garage sale. The green one in the middle is from Target and I hemmed it to not be a maxi skirt. The other skirts are from


These are my dresses. Target and garage sale finds.


My belts. These will dress up my more bland outfits!!

I five cardigans and sweaters too.

Hope these ideas helped some girls get an idea of what to pack! 🙂

    1. I haven’t actually gotten all of these things yet–it’s just an outline. So unfortunately, I haven’t actually gotten my outlet converter yet. But I was planning on looking at REI. They have everything for travel! Have you tried looking there yet?

  1. Where did you get those doc martens? I’m going on a mission and looking for good shoes that aren’t so ugly!

    1. Hi Taylor this is her mom as she can’t do her blog while on a mission but she got her shoes at Journeys. I’ve also seen them on the doc Martin website. They’ve really held up and are good shoes! Good luck on your mission!
