Hey friends! I have been back from our first trip to Los Angeles, CA for four days, and I am still completely gushing over it! It was definitely a trip I will never forget, and I cannot wait to tell you all about it. I have a series of posts planned about the different places we visited! But today I wanted to talk to you about packing! I tend to be an over packer, I’m not gonna lie! Especially when I am going to a place I have always wanted to go. I want to look good, and i want to have options! When the airline says that I can check a bag up to 50 lbs., you had better believe my bag is going to way 50 lbs., pretty much on the nose. I know some of you might frown at this and be totally into packing lightly, and I sometimes am too. But not when I am going to LA for the first time in my life! I wanted to fit every last thing into my bag that I possibly can. So if you can relate to my mentality on this, then this is the packing post for you sister! Read on!
If you have read my blog for one hot minute, you already know that I love fashion! And in my opinion, going to LA requires me to have some really good outfits with me. I plan these outfits to a tee before I ever start packing.I use my bed as my blank canvas, and I start building outfits. First I am going to show you how I plan outfits to pack, and then I will show you how I fit it all in. I knew I wanted to have several dresses for evening and daytime. I also knew that I wanted to also have several shorts outfits to choose from. I had never been to LA before, so I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel, or exactly what we would be getting into, so I wanted to be prepared. When I look back and our pictures from this trip years from now, I want to feel like I looked good! I didn’t go to Barre for 8 months leading up to this trip for nothing, people! Here are some examples of the different outfits I planned for this trip. I have linked back to some of these items (or similar) right under the picture when possible.
