Diem's Pack

Diem does a lot of things well but packing is not one of them. I had to nag her to pack her bag early because she usually procrastinates and throws a bunch of things in a bag before our travels. It's harder for girls to pack light, so I gave her the larger backpack to try to accommodate. Diem used the same compression storage bags (2 large and 2 medium/smaller bags) that I used and also used some packing cube bags. Below is a list of things Diem packed.  

  • Undergarments                                                 
    • 14 pairs of underwear                                       
    • 7 bras
    • 2 sports bras
  • Tops 
    • 5 blouses
    • 4 tank tops
    • 3 bikini tops
  • Bottoms
    • 2 active shorts
    • 2 regular shorts
    • 1 pair of jeans
    • 2 bikini bottoms
  • Dresses
    • 1 short dress
    • 1 long dress
  • Jackets
    • 3 sweaters
    • 1 jacket
    • 1 scarf
  • Socks and Shoes
    • 6 pairs of socks
    • 1 pair of sandals
