In a little less than a week me and my friends will be hitting the road for Memorial Day weekend! It’s going to be a quick trip but I’m super excited to explore San Diego and Palm Springs with 3 of my closest friends. With the temperatures rising here in Phoenix, I’m definitely in need of some cooler weather and a little getaway!
These two spots have been super popular lately and a few of people I follow have posted city guides after their trip! So I was super inspired after reading all of these I decided to put together a “what i’m packing post” but I’ll also be posting a recap from SD and Palm Springs! So stay tuned 🙂
Let’s get started!
So recently I’ve been really wanting to get a new carry-on and I’m such a granny because I’m definitely asking for a full set of luggage for Christmas this year. However, in the meantime I stopped by the new Marshalls by my apartment and picked up a black CALPAK carry-on for only $40! I was so excited to find a simple black suitcase, it took me about 2 seconds to make the purchase. You can get your own here! I also picked up some packing cubes while I was there and I’m very excited to use them.
Now that i’ve got my new suitcase, it’s time to figure out what I’m actually going to be brining. I’m not a huge beauty girl but I do have a handful of things I like to bring while traveling! Some of those things include my Kristen Ess Signature Hair Water, makeup wipes, nail polish, chapstick, dry shampoo, and q-tips. These may seem like basic ass things, and you would be right, but they are essentials for me when I’m traveling! I’ve recently gotten into the habit of having a pre-packed toiletries bag and it’s been super helpful when I have to pack for a trip. Highly recommend.
Now onto the fun stuff, the clothes.
Since we’re headed to both SD & Palm Springs we essentially have to plan for two types of weather, beautiful and not so beautiful. Just because Palm Springs is in California doesn’t mean it’s cooler there, it’s still supposed to be around 102 degrees! Luckily, San Diego has a high of 70 the whole time we’re there but it may be a bit gloomy!
Since I wear a lot of basics, I plan on spicing up every outfit with a cute and fun accessory! I recently picked up a couple bandanas from Madewell (I may be obsessed), a fun yellow bag from Target and a new hat! I’ve recently fallen back in love with getting new shoes and within the past month I may have purchased 4 new pairs of shoes….oops. I’ve been obsessed with platforms, so much so I plan on doing a blog post on all my fave platform shoes because they truly are the perfect shoe for a short girl!
Stay tuned for my recap blog posts to see what I actually ended up wearing because ya girl has yet to pack!
I couldn’t be more excited for this trip, I definitely need a long weekend away from home and I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time with my best friends!
If you want to keep up with me on my trip I’ll be sharing a ton of content on my Instagram so make sure you’re following me!
