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!
