This achievement can be obtained early in the game. You just need to unlock 50 doors or chests and pick 50 pockets.

Make sure you're always hidden when attempting to lockpick/pickpocket.

You can always save the game behind a NPC (or next to a locked door/chest) before trying to steal something. If caught, reload the save and try again. (This does not work if the item has a 0% chance of being stolen)

A tip to speed up the process is waiting for the night then try to enter the house of the residents and save before each attempt to pickpocket.

If like me you have a thief build, be sure to spend some points in the thief tree. Points in the sneak tree are welcome too.

Select the thief standing stone for that extra help.

Remember that the more expensive the item to be stolen is, more XP you will earn. So always try to steal expensive items. If caught load your previous save.

Fenom007: "A very good way to do it while leveling up is to spend some gold at a trainer and instantly pickpocket it back."

You can track your progress in the general stats menu.
