how to pack your clothing by day

The Life-Changing “Clothing by Day” Packing Method

I almost always find it challenging to decide what clothes to pack for international or domestic travel. I mean, what if I don’t feel like wearing that outfit once I’m there? #girlproblems #sorrynotsorry

When I discovered, the “clothing by day” packing method, and naturally applied my knack for being uber-organized and generally over prepared to it, my pre-travel anxiety over packing dissipated. What the heck is “clothing by day” you ask?

Here is a general outline of what I consider the “clothing by day” packing method:

  • Create a list of the days you’ll be traveling
  • Determine what type of outfit you’ll need each day; here’s my personal coding system:
    • Travel = travel day
    • Biz = business professional
    • Casual = anything I want
    • Fancy = can wear to a nice restaurant
    • Club = dance-worthy outfit
    • Beach = sand & sun friendly
  • Pick out your outfits, by day, according to your list
  • Only pack things you know you’ll love / be comfortable in!

Because I’m me, I still always bring an extra outfit, or at least an extra top that can be worn with a pair of jeans or something — you just never know!
