So as you probably can guess, I'm currently trying to figure out what to take with me on a last-minute trip back to Philly. There's family stuff that needs tending to, so we'll be gone for a while, and this is what I'm taking with me. Not much time to really plan outfits or anything, so I'm just grabbing my trusty favorites and hoping for the best! I won't be blogging outfits while I'm gone, but plan to post them on Instagram, so if you want to follow along, we can see how many non-boring outfits I'm able to create from these pretty basic pieces! Without further ado, below are my 20 essential items for an unexpected trip. (and undies and pjs and whatnot, but that stuff is boring and yeah, boring) :)
Also, I want to mention that the Stylebook app has been a complete lifesaver (like today as well as in the past), and I highly recommend it.* It's like Cher Horowitz's closet computer program, but for your phone or ipad. It's a bit of work to set up, as you take pictures of your clothes and add them into your "closet", but it is SO WORTH IT. (Pro tip: you can cheat by using the storefront's stock images cuz they look nicer and is usually easier.) Anyway, I use the app to create looks that I want to wear, keep track of ones I've already worn, and load inspiration pictures for outfit ideas I want to try. It even lets you create packing lists and check off the items as you pack them. This is totally not a sponsored post or anything, I've just been using this app since last Fall and can't rave about it enough. And I wanted to pass along the good outfit juju.
See you on the flip side, cool chicks! In the meantime, you can keep up with me over on Instagram. :)
