How to Pack | Episode 1 -- Camping Trip!

I'm excited to announce the launch of my latest video series: How to Pack! This year I'm going to be traveling a lot, and I'm excited to take y'all along for the ride! I get so many questions about how to prep a suitcase without it being a failure/disaster/disappointment. Thus! I created this series to show you how exactly I do it and end up satisfied + styled at my destination. 

Before you dive into the video though, I also want to say one thing...

packing is stressful.

And if you feel that next trip inducing anxiety, you are certainly not alone. It's stressful, because it truly is hard. You basically have to take what you do every day (create an outfit), but multiple it by at least double. That's a lot of outfits made up of a lot of pieces that you've got to conceptualize at one time. 

It took me many tries and trips before getting in touch with myself enough, gaining the perspective and developing the courage to say, "yes, I will definitely wear this." or "That's a nice idea, Raquel, but you know you won't wear that." Nice ideas are great, and at home, nice can be fun and pleasant. On vacation though, you only want to pack stuff you absolutely love that fits you like a glove. Because loving your outfits every day of a trip will enhance your trip and give you that enviable glow we all want in vacation pictures.

So grab a glass of wine, a pen & paper and hit play to get inspired to create the style under the stars you'll absolutely love. Oh and if you have questions, I'd love to chat.

Got a trip you're taking soon? Let me help you pack for it.
