Oh, the challenges of packing! It is quite a task to pack for a week’s cruise in Alaska and a week’s road trip in Washington State with a 20-inch x 12 1/2-inch carry-on in mind.
It wouldn’t have been so challenging if I did not need to pack for 2 gala nights, meaning cocktail attire, and for smart casual nights. Being a girl who is most comfortable in jeans, the task is difficult! 😳
For my 2 gala nights, I decided I will bring one dress that I could wear in different ways. On 1st gala night I decided I would wear a scarf or a shrug with it and on the 2nd gala night, I’d wear it without a scarf and shrug and just accessorize to the hilt. Sounds like a good idea? We’ll see how this turns out.
As for smart casual nights, the answer is dressy tops and jeans! It’s the only way for me.
Of course, I had to think of the Alaska essentials to keep me warm and dry- a jacket and rain coat.
Congratulations are in order for this light packer, friends! 😉
