California Packing Guide

California Packing Guide

California Packing Guide.  Today I’m breaking down all my looks from my California trip!  The first thing all my friends asked was “how much stuff did you bring?”  The other question I got was “how did you plan out your outfits?”  I’ve also included how much my clothes actually cost because no one ever believes me when I say 99% of my clothes are bought on sale!  People don’t understand the struggles of packing while being a fashion blogger as well. You always have to take extra outfits just for blog posts lol.

First, I had to plan how many outfits approximately I was going to wear. I also had “themes” in mind for each day like my 70s theme on Thursday and the 1920s theme on Friday which was the theme for the wedding.

Next, to help me prepare for the trip, I used the apps “Polyvore” and “Stylebook”.  These apps save me so much time because I can lay out what I’m thinking and then bring the outfits to life!  I think of the clothes that I have in my closet and then find similar versions or the same versions of what I already have. Honestly, the hardest part of this process is remembering how much I paid for the items or exactly where I got them from.
