Packing with Purpose: The Outfit-Planning Hack You Need for Your Next Trip

Do you ever find yourself staring at your closet, completely overwhelmed and not knowing what to pack for your upcoming trip? Trust me, I know the feeling. It's hard to know what to bring with you on a trip, especially when you're limited by luggage space.

That's why I wanted to share one of my favorite packing tips with you today: plan your clothes around outfits instead of categories or individual pieces. It may seem like a small shift, but it can make a big difference in how you approach packing for your trip.

Here's how it works: instead of thinking in terms of "I need five shirts, three pairs of pants, and two dresses," start by choosing a few complete outfits that you know you'll want to wear on your trip. Lay them out on your bed or on the floor, and make sure that you have all the necessary pieces to complete each outfit (like shoes, accessories, etc.).

Once you have your outfits planned out, you can then start to fill in the gaps with additional pieces that can mix and match with what you've already chosen. For example, if you have a pair of jeans that can work with two different tops you've already picked out, then you're maximizing your options without overpacking.

The beauty of this approach is that it helps you to be intentional about what you're bringing with you on your trip. You're not just throwing random items into your suitcase and hoping for the best. Instead, you're creating a plan for every item of clothing you're bringing with you, and you know exactly how each piece fits into your overall wardrobe for your trip.

Of course, there will always be unexpected situations that arise while you're traveling, and you may need to adjust your outfit plans on the fly. But having a solid plan to start with can help you to feel more confident and prepared for your trip, and can make the packing process a little less daunting.

So, next time you're getting ready for a trip, try planning your clothes around outfits instead of individual pieces. Who knows, it might just revolutionize the way you approach packing!
