How I travel light:
Check the weather: For Palm Springs and Indio, the weather was 90-100 degrees in the day and a low of 70-80 degrees at night.
Ask myself the following questions:
–What will I be doing?
–What pieces will look good and feel comfortable for each activity? (Bonus points for pieces I can wear more than once)
–What do I need to add to complete the look (bag, shoes, etc…)?
–Second guessing something? Don’t bring it.
The Numbers: Everything I packed + wore for 5 days (not including pjs + underwear)
2 shorts (I stuck with gray shorts but it’s always good to have back-up)
2 pairs of shoes
2 bathing suits (didn’t photograph this striped top + bottom from SKYE & staghorn).
1 pair of sunglasses: The one I wear in every photo. From Madewell.
1 purse: my usual Rebecca Minkoff brown camera bag, same one in black.
1 carry-on: Everlane Weekender bag.
So proud that I only over packed 1 thing: my baseball cap. It didn’t take up much space anyway.
Wore this same outfit for the plane both ways:
(Obviously not a photo from Coachella but exact same outfit)
Clayton Navy Dress
Hope this all made sense and has inspired you to pack just what you need for your next trip. *This doesn’t apply if you don’t mind checking a bag and having lots of options.*
Thanks for stopping by!
