As I type this up, I’m sitting on a plane to San Francisco enjoying the benefits of in-flight wi-fi. Since I knew that my Spring Break itinerary includes 4 flights, my goal was to avoid checking any luggage during this trip. Normally I bring at least one suitcase, which I can fill to my heart’s content, but this time around I knew that wasn’t going to be the case. My challenge: could I fit all I needed for two weeks in three different locations (San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Bakersfield) into one carry-on and one “personal item”? The answer is yes and I figured I would share with you guys my packing process!

Gather the jewelry and shoes! Looking at the outfits I made up, I grabbed matching earrings from my jewelry frame, as well as necklaces from my revolving stand. Then I also grabbed the pairs of shoes that I thought would be most versatile- one pair of flats, one pair of wedges, one pair of boots (which I’m wearing on the plane because they’re the bulkiest), and what my friends have termed “the stripper shoes” for Vegas. And of course, they’re all black! :D

And there you have it- that’s how I pack! I’m definitely not saying that this is the best method out there, but I do I know that I am able to fit a great deal of things into a small amount of space and packing only carry-on items for a two-week trip is definitely an accomplishment for me (my roommates almost made a bet that I wouldn’t be able to do it because they know how I am)!
