packing and weather stress! spark & hustle or bust!
Oh….the packing dilemma! I am leaving tomorrow for Spark and Hustle with Tory Johnson in L.A. I also get to spend some time with two great girlfriends in the City of Angels. I am looking forward to this trip on so many levels….too many to even mention. I have babysitters and dog walkers lined up to help the big guy with the 2 legged kids and the 4 legged ones. I have a visiting nurse scheduled to help with my mom after her surgery. Now, it is time for me to ditch my UGGs (required pedi) and head out to Southern California, and I have packed and unpacked three times today. Oh….the packing dilemma!
I have not been away by myself in a long time, and I want to make the most of every moment! Of course, I want to dress perfectly for each one of those moments. Instructions were business casual for day and fun for evening. Being from Pittsburgh, I am wondering if business casual and fun mean something different in Cali? So, I just keep adding and subtracting from the suitcase (actually mostly adding more).
There is also the issue of being true to my style…my brand. Not the actual label brand, but my Backngruv-Brand. I feel like my overall style should exude getting my ass back in the groove. Not to mention, I am working on lingerie-related products. One person suggested I should show a little bra – I don’t think so! BUT, I do think that I live and breathe my brand. So, the skinny camo pants are staying in the suitcase, but my bra will remain under my shirt.
(I am packing the Incredible Demi Racerback Bra by V.S. Which is Bckngruv-Recommended).
The pile is growing – slacks, jeans, sweater dress, tights, boots, my workout gear, and of course – a Steelers jersey to travel home in on Super Bowl Sunday! Now, that I am opening up the suitcase for the 4th time, I face a weather dilemma! Winter storms throughout the midwest are screwing up flights all over, so rather than obsessing over weather, I will probably pack and unpack for a 5th time.
What is your best packing suggestion?
