Packing Tips

Okay I will admit, at the beginning of my journey as Miss Teen International I was terrible at packing. I have the problem that most girls have, overpacking. Somehow I could convince myself that I need to bring a ski jacket to Hawaii... okay that is a little dramatic but you understand my point! So from one terrible packer to another, here are my top tips on packing light.

1. Make a Plan
The worst thing possible is to start throwing clothes in your suitcase. Make a plan. How many days will you be gone? What do you need for those days?

2. Stick to the Plan
Now that you have made a plan, stick to it. If you feel like you need to bring extra clothes, bring one extra outfit that goes with a pair of shoes you have already packed.

3. Basics are the Best
I like to go for basic shoes and jewelry, unless it is a really special outfit. I usually travel with a pair of nude shoes and a pair of clear ones. They tend to go with everything and allow there to be more room in my suitcase for more clothes!

4. Tote Bags
Instead of bringing a bunch of carry ons, I like to stick with my one big tote bag from Title Wear! I can fit my crown case, purse and any extra goodies in that tote bag. This makes for an easier managed load while trying to make it through the airport!

I hope these tips helped turn packing into a less stressful situation!
