I've sort of gotten the hang of efficient packing; otherwise I'd be super overwhelmed and unprepared. Here are some of my top tips!

Suitcase before heading to Coachella

1. Roll Your Clothes

I used to fold my clothes when packing, but then I learned that you can save space by rolling them instead. I usually need every square inch of my suitcase, and this trick has helped a ton. In fact, if I roll my clothing on the way, and try folding on the way back, my stuff no longer fits! It's a great trick because it allows you get into the nooks and crannies that would otherwise go unused. To try this technique, just fold clothes in half and then begin rolling as tightly as possible.

2. Plane preparation

I spend a good chunk of time packing sandwich bags full of things just for the plane. My friends think I'm crazy until they're on the flight with me and realise how amazing it is to be prepared! I always make sure to bring  warm socks (because somehow there's always cool air blowing directly on my feet), a  travel pillow, a  pashminamoisturizing face masks (skin dries out on long flights), snacks, headphones, and a pen when traveling internationally. I can't tell you how many times in the past I haven't had a pen when they've passed out the declaration forms to get through Customs-I'll never forget again.
I know some plus size women are also nervous about seatbelt sizing. You can always quietly ask the flight attendant for a seatbelt extender-all airlines carry them. Alternatively, you can  buy your own to have anytime you fly!

3. Pack Neutrals

I can't emphasize this enough! I always make sure to pack neutral separates so I can mix and match when I'll be gone for an extended amount of time. It's fine to bring a few statement pieces, but the basic staples are what really get me through the trip. These include a few  pair of jeans in different washes, black/white/grey t-shirts, a  little black dress, a couple of jackets and a basic skirt. From there, I add a few special items that can work with each piece. I always make sure to pack  statement jewellery to add personality to the outfits.
