What I packed for the holidays (and what I wore yesterday)

Thursday, December 23, 2010
As you guys know, Chase and I are in Sac-town for the holidays. We're here for two weeks. I thought it'd be fun to show you what I packed...especially since I first tried dumping my fave items into my suitcase but the resourceful side of me said, "You're an idiot," so I went back and packed items I'd be able to mix and match better. I've already created four outfits from these pieces (one, two, three, four is below).

Aaaand this is what I wore yesterday. It was a one-picture day. If you're a fashion blogger, you know what I'm talking about. It's when you look tolerable in one out of a gajillion pictures...also when your outfit looks better in your head than it does on you.

  1. I really like seeing posts from other people to see what they are packing, it helps me edit what I'm packing... haha. Hope you have a great holiday! I'm also jealous you are in much warmer weather than I am... so many perks to living in Cali!

  2. Your skirt from Korea is a gem and I love the leopard print scarf! Have fun on your trip!

  3. We're gone for three weeks and I had so much trouble deciding what to bring. So cal can be tricky weather wise. I ended up with two bags which is way excess for me. The goal this trip though is less sweats and more real clothes. We'll see... :)

  5. I am a horrible packer! I hate packing and end up bringing way too much and then not wearing 1/2 of it! I think I just don't travel enough. That's my problem. I need to travel more, therefore allowing me to practice packing!

    Have a great holiday!

  6. I absolutely love that someone can relate to me in situations like these. I traveled to the country of Jordan last week and had such a hard time packing, but I had to pick outfits and accessories that would mix and match with others. I'm so glad I came across your blog!

  7. I surprised my self this year... i managed to pack about that same amount of clothing (different distribution of items though because sadly I can't steal your closet (just kidding...)) for an entire month. Have a great vacation!

  9. Ugh I hate one shot days especially if you love the outfit. I think you did a great job of packing for two weeks. If it was me I would be agonizing for days about what to bring. Packing absolutely sucks...

  16. I'm from Sac! Let me know if you want tips on what restaurants to go to :D

  17. Recording on pictures what you pack is a good idea! I think it would make me pack better (or not). Seeing it in a more abstract way might allow me to be more structured... I am a terrible packer. I will definitely try this next time so I don't pack tons of useless stuff.

    Happy Holidays!

  19. Your such a better packer than me. I don't review I generally just throw random crap in a bag and end up wearing the same few things over and over...

  26. I love the necklace over the shirt with the skinny jeans. And your items look great - can't wait to see what you wear. Merry Christmas.

  27. All your clothes are lovely and have a good price on them! Just wondering, how did you fit all those wonderful shoes in your luggage for your trip? And your outfit looks professional, but casual enough to just go out for a trip to the mall or something. Love it.

  28. Such an efficient packer! Looks like you have a lot of great options. Your button down reminds me that I need (read:NEED!) a new one. I should check out the GAP's options. Thanks!

  29. You did so much better at the packing thing than I did. What is it that makes me hate the outfits I come up with on vacation? Also, I laughed at your comment about only liking one picture and outfits looking better in your head than on your body. I KNOW! But yours looks darling, so no fair that you didn't like it so much.
