Hold on to your Hat: The Overnight Pack

Three bags packed and one Fabulous Hat…  An overnight with five wardrobe changes from summer swimming to asoccer match…  I beg of you don’t ditch the Hat.

For the sake of your skin for hours in the sun,  hold on to your hat when the zipper doesn’t want to close and the suitcase is bulging at the seams.  So, you need to repack add a third bag to manage all of the gear.

My third bag was easy to organize with dollar store plastic pencil cases in a purple hue.

The Coach also has  a shoulder strap while the wristlet tucks neatly along side the hygiene items and jewelry roll.  Relieve the burden of overstuffed pockets in bag number two pictured above and now focused on below.

Bag Number two is a tote of comforts: a silken blanket, travel neck pillow, cozy socks, misting fan, a sleeping mask and the umbrella which ended up in the leather coach satchel, thus demanding less space from Bag Number 1.  My luggage collection is Vera Bradley a lightweight luggage perfect for car travel as well as an Indiana Original Company.

Three Compartment segment shoes from your toiletry kit and clothing.  Using dollar store pencil kits to separate cosmetics from dental hygiene and shower kits. Slippers for the hotel room and flip flops for the pool are stowed in there own bag within the zipper locked weekender by Vera Bradley.

The shower kit nestled into the waterproof polkdot bag which will double as a wet bag for the swimming suit.  The sanitation kit picture above ultimately found it’s home in the coach leather bag and unburdened the weekender.
