Trip Planning: Outfits

Knowing I had a busy week in front of me, I decided to get organized and pack for our cruise (VACATION!) this past weekend. I flipped through the shirts in my closet questioning each item's potential. I grabbed a bunch off the hanger and made a "possibly" pile. Did the same for shorts/skirts. Eventually I decided on my outfits. I got the idea somewhere to lay out each planned outfit. Although I've never done this before, I find it extremely helpful. Once everything is crammed into a suitcase, it's hard to remember which shirt went with which bottoms, and what necklace you planned on wearing, etc. This alleviates all that, and makes things a bit more organized.

So without further ado, here are the daytime clothes I plan to wear on our cruise to the Caribbean. [Nighttime is a different story, and trust me I have some sweet dresses planned! Pictures later!]
