Hello, my name is Kristen and I am still an overpacker at heart.
Sure, I can make 50 outfits for a 2 week trip, but faced with only a week to pack for... I will still fill that suitcase up. I justified it by telling myself that I didn't know what the weather would be like, we were doing multiple things requiring multiple outfits, I had the room in my suitcase, it would stop me from shopping.. etc etc etc. I can create an excuse for anything. All that to say, I definitely 'over-packed' for this trip, I could have packed less, but I like to look different each day and if I have the room.. why not, right?
Anywho. So. Disney World / Universal for about a week in November. Here's what I packed:

These are the outfits I planned:
5 park days, 2 casual grown up outfits, 1 fancy ish dress just in case. I wore everything except the maxi. I didn't pair the cardigan with any of those outfits, but I had it in my backpack and used it at one point every single day. I never needed anything warmer, so that was good. I also wore jeans instead of shorts one day (hogwarts alumni), but ended up walking back to the hotel to change when it got hotter. We went straight on the water rides after that, so no photos. Here are the few (accidental) outfit photos I did get:
It was beautiful weather while we there, only rained once that I can recall and it was right after we got off the water rides so we didn't mind. It rained the day we were leaving, as well.
I know that packing posts aren't everyone's cup of tea, and they are so subjective, because everyone is different yadi yadi yada, but when I look at packing posts (which is way more often than it should be), I don't look to copy exactly, I look to get ideas, and to see what other people wear to certain places, to gauge the weather etc. I don't think everyone is as weird as me in that respect, but anyway. That's why I like packing posts.
Also, real life part of this post. I had planned what I wanted to pack (months ago), but work was insane the week we were leaving (because we were moving) and I was so frazzled that I didn't pack until the night before which might not be a big deal to anyone, but I normally pack weeks / months in advance
Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a good Thanksgiving weekend!
