LA Weekend Packing List

LA packing list, Los Angeles packing list

I’d like to say that I’m packing light for my trip to BeautyCon in Los Angeles this weekend. I’d like to say that I’m bringing two shirts, a pair of shorts, and a dress, and that I’m going to be the ultimate master of mixing and matching. But I prefer to avoid gratuitously lying on my blog.

The last time I was in Los Angeles, I was drooling on Mickey Mouse at Disneyland and only ate macaroni and cheese. I had no idea what high heeled shoes were, and I couldn’t have cared less about going to a pool party unless people were actually swimming. I’ve already confessed how little-kid dazzled I am by the glamour of fashion in a big city, and Los Angeles takes the glamour of San Francisco and gives it highlights, a spray-tan, and thrice-weekly Pilates.

So, I’m bringing seven pair of shoes for three days, and I’m damn proud. I could pretend that this is just another routine weekend trip in the life of a fashion blogger, but it’s not. Frankly, I’m so excited I’m about to pee myself (ok, not really- I would never ruin my new leather shorts).

To try to slightly tone down my tendency to pack like a rabid wolf chowing down on its last fashion meal, I stuck to neutrals for my outfits and added pops of my beloved fuchsia with accessories and fun nails. The badass sandals I mentioned before proved to be absolutely walkable, so I’m going to rely on them for most of the trip other than evenings when I hobble from a cab to a barstool. And who can resist a neon-pink bikini?

Who knows, maybe I’ll actually swim.
