Can I be honest with you about something? I’m a terrible packer. Like, the worst. It doesn’t matter how many times I read articles on “how to pack more efficiently,” it doesn’t seem to get any better.
A few weeks ago when we traveled to Florida, my husband and I had this bright idea of only bringing one checked bag. Only one! I’m not sure what possessed us to think this was a good plan since the weight of our bag far surpassed the 50 pound maximum.
Just imagine - me, in the middle of the airport (at 5:30 AM, pre-coffee) frantically throwing items from our checked bag into my carry-on. Somehow we managed to bring the weight just down to 50 pounds, but it wasn’t pretty. Oh you’d like to see how unpretty it was? WELL YOU ARE IN LUCK! Scroll down to see my carry-on hot mess to get your daily dose of #doh for the day.
On a positive note, this jumper (that I wore to an event and to work) was suuuuper comfortable. I paired with my go-to slouchy jacket from Anthom, and it was perfect for the chilly airplane ride down to sunny Florida!
