My (failed) Attempt at Traveling in Style

No matter how much time I put into planning and packing for a trip, I am always a mess. I always over pack and revert to the “I’ll just wear everything that doesn’t fit method.” This method always leads to me overheating on the plane and stripping the layers away as soon as I reach my seat. Today was no exception. I arrived to my parents house with my two bags plus an extra bag filled with things I “might” need. Instead of just saying goodbye to a couple items for the weekend, I made room for my Frye boots and added on two more layers for the flight.IMG_0004Hat: Gap (old)

To aid in my constant packing issues, I recently purchased this vintage Louis Vuitton backpack from Poshmark. It is the perfect size for my laptop and planner, but due to my horrible packing skills it is also filled with cosmetics, chargers and god knows what. I am hoping that this will be a perfect travel backpack for the trip and help me to see New Orleans without having to hold my usual over sized handbag (and leave my hands free for cocktails).
