Renegade Holiday Craft Fair. This means another wildly fun OCD challenge for me. Packing a suitcase in the Wintertime, even if it is just for a few days can be a real bitch. Packing for a weekend getaway in the Summer is a piece of cake...mostly because all the pieces are small. Flip-flops, bikinis, tank-tops, and shorts take up WAY less room in a suitcase than sweaters, jeans, boots and jackets. And I pretty much refuse to use anything other than a small carry-on suitcase to pack in, no matter where I'm going, for how long, and whether I'm driving or flying. So, just in case you're planning a Winter Wonderland journey in the near future, I'll share with you how I got 4 days worth of bulky items to fit in an itty-bitty bag...
First, prep. Lay out all the pieces. For this trip I need enough pieces to make 4 days worth of layered outfits for cold weather. This needed to include the outfits I'll be wearing while hanging out all day long at my booth at the craft show, as well as an option for going out in the evening with friends, and also something fun to wear for our girls-day in Manhattan before coming home on Monday. Tip: Choose pieces in the same color family, and use your accessories as pops of color. that way everything goes with everything else, and can be switched around to make more outfits out of fewer pieces.
