One thing I must confess is I have the WORST packing anxiety.
It doesn’t matter whether I’m packing for a weekend getaway or a week long cruise, I absolutely dread packing.
As you may imagine, with LESS THAN 3 WEEKS until my five-month long exchange to the South of France, I am in a state of absolute panic. So much panic, in fact, that instead of commencing this mission of invading my closet, I am choosing to sip wine and blog about my worries.
As a fashionista who idolizes Rachel Zoe, I always hear her voice in my head saying “options, options, options” whenever I need to justify packing an extra
few ten outfits.
With just 2 suitcases and a total weight limit of 100 pounds of fabulous fashion to accompany me, I am struggling to accept the fact that I will have to leave things behind. I would probably exceed the weight limit for the entire plane if I brought everything I wanted to with me.
The thought of packing these two particular categories are haunting me the most:
1) Nail Polish
Any of my Twitter followers would know that I am a self-diagnosed Essie-holic. To the point where I’ve had a nightmare about stocking up on Essie polish, only to go to the checkout and find out that I had exceeded the customer limit. As someone who paints her nails religiously, how I can I possibly leave any behind? What would Essie Warrington say? Perhaps I should just bring them all with me!
This is a monumental problem. And no, I don’t think I am exaggerating Unfortunately, when I tried to make a list of all the boots, heels, wedges, and flats I wanted to bring with me, I gave up once my count exceeded 20 pairs. I adore shoes my collection of shoes. The idea of not having the pair I need to complete an outfit because of some stupid weight limit is, well, heartbreaking.
Now that I have adequately expressed my immense packing anxiety, I somehow feel better (even though you probably think I need to see a psychiatrist). Stay tuned for an update or two when I actually begin packing.
On another note, I wanted to wish everyone a very merry Christmas! Hope your holidays are full of love and laughter… and festive outfits, of course. Xo
