Packing For New York


I like to think I’m pretty good at packing a case these days but for this trip I tried something different and used it not only in my case but the kids too. I do of course always consider outfits ahead of time but tend to think of mixing and matching and generally having enough of everything, this time I packed in complete outfits. You can see what I mean from my daughters piles of clothes below, every top had a bottom and in the kids case they had underwear rolled in too. In theory this means they can live out of a case without the daily rummage.. they can pick out one roll of clothes and that’s everything they need to dress for the day,


We’ve each got minimal shoes, 1 swimsuit (there’s a pool in our hotel) 7 outfits (2 more than days we’re there – plus extra for Milo) pyjamas and our travelling clothes already laid out and ready to go. We’re driving down to Heathrow tonight and fly tomorrow.. we usually bag up our day before clothes and leave them in the boot of the car before we head to the airport the morning of so we have only clean clothes with us in our cases.. we need that space for SOUVENIRS!!!


If you want to see the specifics of what I actually packed for the trip you can watch this video. It’s my first time visiting New York in the Summer and I understand it’s hot, humid and can rain with no notice so I’ve tried to pack accordingly but I may do an update on our return and let you know what maybe I should/shouldn’t have taken to be more weather appropriate!
