How to Pack: The Two Bag Rule
It seems that many of us struggle with over packing and not knowing how to balance being prepared (and looking good!) with packing light. I particularly loved all the questions you asked via comments and emails. With that in mind I decided that the guide needs to be elaborated, that way I will hopefully cover any questions you guys have!
One of the questions that kept coming up was “how would this work for my trip to…?” I.e. if you were going to cold or hot climates, or a beach trip vs a city break. One reader was going on a surprise honeymoon and didn’t even know the destination. Scary. Also v v sweet. But also scary! In light of that, I’m going to be starting with the 2 bag rule and breaking it down into specific destinations. The general rules still apply: 1 large bag for when you are on the plane and during the day when you need supplies, and 1 small bag for in the evenings and when you don’t want to carry too much. I’ve partnered with Oroton to create this post, they have a lovely new collection in store and I thought it would be a great way to illustrate the general principles.
