My birthday was this past Friday and Brian surprised me with a trip to Palm Springs! I could not be happier; I really needed a vacation and a chance to relax from this busy life in Los Angeles. Some people dread packing, however I actually enjoy it. Maybe because I plan my outfits way in advance and pack days before in case any last-minute interferences come up, such as a party…who knows?! For being a fashionista, I am a very light packer (I once traveled to Norway for a week with just a carry on!) So I thought I would share some of my packing tips and essentials with all of you…
First, be sure to include the essentials: make-up, sunscreen, detangler for your hair, sunglasses, and chargers for any electronics.
Second, I figure out the number of days I will need outfits for, the events I maybe going to (in this case laying by the pool and dinner.) Then I lay out all my outfit possibilities with accessories and shoes included.
This is my pool outfit I should also pack my favorite magazine to read and of course sunscreen! I may have gone overboard on the swimsuits. I can eliminate a few saving space in my luggage for souvenirs!
Last, but not least, I make sure everything fits in my bags and I can carry them without a problem. Hats can be difficult because they need to retain their shape, so I will wear one on the drive there and back and set the others on top of our luggage to keep from getting squished.
Looking forward to showing you all the outfits I picked out for the trip! Follow me on Instagram @Laura__Lily to see the highlights from my trip!
