What is in my bag? Suitcase edition

Photobucket

Just a little peak into what I am taking with me to the States. I am such a nerd, I actually started packing three weeks ago, are you one of those people, or do you pack the night before? I find that the anticipation of a holiday is nearly as good for you as the holiday itself. The planning and research is so fun for me, sometimes though I have to remember that it is good to be spontaneous too.

I tried to take lots of basics that can be remixed together. I know that I will do a lot of shopping so didn't want to take too much. The weather thing is also worrying me a little as we will be going from 36 degrees in Vegas to 22 in New York so have taken skirts and dresses that can be warmed up with stockings and cardigans.

Can you see anything I have forgotten?
Don't worry underwear is packed but didn't think you needed to see that :-P I think I have done pretty well, and still  have nearly half a suitcase left to bring back goodies hehe.

  1. How exciting! Your trip is going to be amazing. I'm going to be in New York at the end of October and I'm all ready pre packing in my head. If I over shop I'm just going to buy another suitcase. Thank goodness you're allowed two suitcases for America!

  3. Ha, I can't help myself - I always pack early and always way too much. Do you roll your clothes when you pack them? You can fit about twice as much in if you roll them (they do get more creased though). Happy travels missy!

  5. This is amazing! You have really thought about everything. I think for overseas holidays I usually pack earlier but if not I'm a night before packer.

    Eeee! So excited for you. x

  6. I have to totally agree that one of the best things about a holiday is the packing/planning and anticipation - it is as much a part of it for sure. I was going to say leave plenty of space to bring back but you have been very good in planning a mix/match so you have lots of room.
    Two sleeps - how exciting.

  12. I pack in advance too :) although my boyfriend packs about five minutes before we leave, in july I bought him a bunch of shorts for the beach and he packed them still in plastic (old navy online ordering) and without trying them on because he 'didn't have time' luckily they fit! I had bought them two weeks in advance too... sigh.

    the only thing I'd be concerned about is that I think it'll be colder than you think in new york, it might be 22 degrees now, but right now it's 21 C here but at night it can get as low as 5. if you're going to be out in the evening at all you're going to want to make sure you have a fall coat or at least a warm sweater, as you may find it quite cool and nyc is a great city for walking even if it gets a touch chilly.
