Traveling Fashionista Tip

Happy Labor Day weekend! This weekend I am out-of-town and I wanted to share with you all a little trick about packing specific outfits.

While packing, I was inspired by the picture above! This is how Dulce Candy packs when she travels and I thought it would be great if I tried this!

As I was putting my outfits together I started to realize how useful this process is!

  • I can use items that I would otherwise forget I have
  • Ability to see the entire look without running the risk of forgetting a specific item
  • Allows you to plan in advance

Here’s my version!

I really enjoyed putting all of the outfits together! Now I don’t have to worry about remembering a really cute top that I should have brought!

Quick tip:

Sometimes I know that I may not like the way an outfit looks or I may be uncomfortable but seeing all my outfits laid out allows me to make sure that different pieces can go together!

Hope this was helpful! Let me know if you have any other traveling tips for fashionistas!

What’s in my travel makeup bag!

This weekend I’m in Orlando to see my boyfriend and as I was packing I thought about being really good with the amount of makeup I took! On this particular trip, I was only taking a carry on just because I didn’t want to trot around with a huge bag for just one weekend. I went light on my makeup bag with which is pretty impressive and I’m pretty happy with myself! I also knew that I would go shopping so downsizing the amount of clothes wasn’t that hard.

In this post, I will share with you all what I take in my makeup bag for one weekend.

Is this a good list or should I have taken less? Tell me about how you all travel!
