Packing for the trip was quite a feat because we only took carry-ons. Before the trip I had purchased a super cute teal and white floral print skirt at Goodwill, but the skirt was too big. I seem to always find the best stuff at thrift stores, about one size too large, but this skirt was too good to let go so I decided to upscale it!
To upscale it I put the skirt on inside out and pinned the amount I would need to take in at my widest point, about 1 inch at my hips. So as to not lose the shape of the skirt I took 1 inch out of the right side seam the whole way down. The left side seam had a hidden zipper that I didn't want to disturb.
