I am packed!

Well I couldn't go on holiday and not do the bloggers packing post, now could I!

I like things in their place....I like to think of myself as organised.

For the children I use a lot of the little drawstring bags I have collection, like these from Boden ( that contain their body suits ) ideal for keeping the likes of underwear together and hair bows.

Hubby now knows I am a control freak when it comes to packing and he just leaves his stuff out for me too pack. He knows that if he attempts it himself bless him, I will only unpack his efforts and redo it 'my way' 
I have for many years packed really badly, always took far too much then when I was there, thought " oh I wish I would of brought that " So after my major wardrobe cull and packing a colour co-ordinated holiday case/wardrobe in May, finally I got it right!

So what I am packing this time - here is everything apart from my dresses.

6 x T-Shirts
2 x Shorts
4 x Day/Beach Dresses
3 x Swimsuits
3 x Evening Dresses
2 x Skirts
3 x Trousers - 1x Jeans (travel in) 1 x Chinos (cool day) 1x Capri pants ( can be dressed up)
3 x tops/shirt ( travel in 1) (shirt can double up as a beach cover-up)
5 x Shoes - 1 x pair of heels 1 x closed toe (travel in) 1 x beach flip flops 2 x Sandals
3 x bags - 1 x Day ( travel/cross body ) 1 x beach 1 x evening.
I always pack a scarf, one or two belts ( they can change the look of outfits) and some jewellery.
Travel in your jeans & jacket to save weight in your suitcase.

Another little tip... from me ( the hostee )
Early flight - don't bother and dress your children. We lift ours straight out of bed and into the car in their Pjs and babygrow. We change them at the airport after security ( time permitting) or better still on the flight... Then you have a change of clothes for sickness or any leaking poops. Plus my little boys thinks its hilarious going out in the middle of the night in his Pjs.
