TRAVEL /// Packing for California



When planning outfits to pack I always go back and look at my instagram to see what outfits I really liked and how I can mismatch them with other things I have. I also look at my Pinterest Board "I WANT TO WEAR THIS" for inspiration. Next I try on a bunch of options, fold up/ roll up what I like, then lay it on the floor so I can make my final choices.

These are the things I ask myself while packing///
How many days will I be gone /// 6, which means I need at least 6 outfits.
Where am I going /// Carlsbad, Encinitas, LA
What is the weather like right now /// PERFECT but chilly at night.
What am I going for /// Beach, Birthday Celebrations, Camping, visiting our boos.
Am I checking my bags /// NO
