Packing Light: Thanksgiving Weekend + FREE Packing Planners

Thanksgiving is officially less than one week away. I like to plan ahead so that I don’t feel so rushed or anxious on travel days (even though I inevitably do). One of the best things I’ve found to help me is planning my outfits in advance and making sure that I don’t overpack. I really hate unpacking, so packing lightly is a major time saver when visiting is over.packing light outfits


Any time I start to pack, I mentally run through the below list of items and make sure that I have the necessities:

If I’ve got those, and I’m sure that I’m working within the same color palette, I know that I will have something suitable for  whatever events I have going on. I’ve put together a few sample outfits for you below. You can really mix and match any pieces you want here as long as you stay within the same color palette. I like to create these blog posts as a baseline and then see what items I have in my closet that are equivalent.
