Time to pack!

alt packing essentials / a thousand threadsalt packing essentials / a thousand threads
Today’s the day! I’m gathering all of the essentials to fly off to SLC in the morning. (Keep your fingers crossed that the buckets of snow currently falling outside don’t slow me down.)

And although I sort of hate packing (a lot…) I have to say I’m kind of proud of myself for being so prepared for this particular trip. I might even be done a whole day in advance!

So since I’m so super on the ball, here are a few of the essentials I’m taking along…

Top, clockwise: a big tote to carry swag / a keyboard for my tablet, to take lots of good notes / a phone to connect with new friends / a little black dress / some great accessories for said dress / a pretty pair of heels / a cute and comfy outfit for the day / red lipstick

Bottom, clockwise: my yoga tablet / some classic pearls / glasses so I can shield the sun / glasses so I can see / flats for when the heels are just too much / a pretty green dress / an even prettier matching necklace / some fancy shoes / a few little miracle workers from Nick Chavez to keep my hair in check / a very studious shirt / a lint roller

What have I missed? (Ha okay, a lot — how about a toothbrush?). So many things to think about when you’re going away.

    I am always going back and forth from one thing to the next and as result packing feels as though it has become and everyday thing. So, I SO understand hating packing and even more so I SO understand how great it feels to have it all done the day before. (p.s. loving these outfits!)

    So many things to think about when packing for a trip…but it looks like you got everything covered (in such an organized manner, too!) lol! I also haaate packing! I’ve done it so many times though, that I usually just throw everything together in a suitcase the night before (sometimes a few hours before) I have to leave for the airport! haha! Safe travels, friend! I’m traveling to Colorado this weekend, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all this snow gets better!!
