En Route

Since i’ve transitioned into a new role at work, I’ve been traveling a lot. Luckily for me, I love traveling to new locations and for the most part, it’s only a day or two.

In just September, October and November, I’ve been to Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Napa and soon Vancouver and Portland!

While these trips are only a few days, I’ve lugged my heavy suitcases to airports and into cars and well, I have to say, it wasn’t glamorous nor easy.

So when Lo & Sons came out with their amazing, smart and stylish bags designed specifically for travel, well, I knew I had to get my hands on one.

And I don’t know about y’all, but packing for trips gives me anxiety. So here, I’m going to share 4 packing tips and tricks I’ve learned:

  • Roll your clothing! This saves so much space when trying to fit a lot of things in your bag

  • Put odds and ends (like socks, jewelry & belts) in your shoes! I love this bottom pocket from Lo & Sons that lets me store my shoes safely!

  • If you’re packing a hat, make sure to stuff it with clothing and then place other clothing to secure it so it doesn’t get stuffed/crushed or anything in between

  • Dryer sheet: Throw in a dryer sheet to leave your clothing feeling fresh and smellin’ oh so good

And after this, you’ll be a traveling n’ packing pro in no time. :)
