    Vacation Travel Essentials

    One of the most difficult things for me to do is pack for travel, especially vacations. Work travel is a bit easier because I have to do it so often, I have a mental list in my head. But when it comes to vacations, I have to think about what I want to bring for different weekend activities and outfits/accessories that go along with them. It’s also harder than work because I have more freedom (I don’t have to wear suits)!

    When I packed for Arizona, I knew it was going to be dry and hot weather, so I made sure to pack some everyday essentials, including my new Vaseline Lip Therapy Tins. They come in original, rosy, cocoa, and aloe vera flavors. I have always been a user of Vaseline products to heal and prevent cracked skin, so it was only natural to bring them along on this trip, especially since I was going for a more natural look on this short vacation.

    Some additional items I brought along were comfy dresses, sandals, hats and workout clothes (since you know I gotta get the workouts in, even on vacay). For this look, I paired a dress I thrifted from ThredUp with my new GiGi NewYork handbag. I usually never like pink or huge pops of color, but on vacation, that’s a different story. I definitely enjoy matching my surroundings a bit!

    Spring Fever in Green Valley

    So I just got back from a much needed relaxing weekend at my grandparent’s retirement resort community in Green Valley, Arizona (outside of Tucson if you don’t know where that is). I love to do a shoot at my weekend get-a-ways so it gives you all an insight into what I do in my free time. I rendezvoused with my parents here, so I spent the weekend catching up on life with my family. Talk about therapy 🙂

    Their resort community has just about everything under the sun when it comes to activities- golfing (duh), tennis, swimming, an “Arts & Tech” building (so cute right?), and much more. It was about eighty degrees there, so everyone went about their routines and scooted around town in their golf carts. For this weather, I chose a lose fitted maxi dress (those are still cool I hope) to keep myself cool and some strappy sandals I bought at a thrift store way back when. I hope this gives everyone on the East Coast some hope for spring to come soon! Snow snow go away…

    What I’m Wearing:
    Maxi Dress: Forever21
    Military Green Button-down: Ecote (Urban Outfitters)
    Sandals: Thrifted
    Ring: Madewell

    I’m going somewhere next weekend, too! Big surprise, right? Stay tuned.

    So much love for all of you,

    PC: My Mommy!
