How-to Pack For a Weekend Conference

March 16, 2015

It’s been almost a year since Patricia and I attended Lucky Fabb (west) in Los Angeles. Wow does time fly! It was such an amazing opportunity to learn from so many successful bloggers and be able to network and meet so many incredible people. It was also an inspiring experience that truly inspired Patricia and I to take The Fashion Cookbook to the next step. It is with great excitement that I share that I’m going back to LA for another fashion blogger conference this week. The conference, called “Create+Cultivate,” is not your average conference. It is specifically geared towards entrepreneurs and creatives alike, who aspire to take their passions to the next level. The conference is this Saturday, March 21st, but I’m going to be making a full long weekend out it. With me will be Erin, one of my closest friends. We are going to explore downtown LA, hike by the Hollywood sign, go to the beach, and eat amazing food. I thought I would compile three tips to pack efficiently for such a trip. Enjoy!

1. Plan ahead
Planning your outfits–from head to toe–ensures you don’t overpack, as well as you plan ahead for the new things that you may bring home. This is especially essential for a blogger conference when there are always free goodies. Plus it cuts getting ready time in half. If you’re afraid you won’t remember what you originally planned to wear, take photos of the looks you plan to wear for each day.

2. Organize
Another important key to avoid overpacking is organization. If you just throw everything in your suitcase, you won’t be able to fit as much into your suitcase. Instead, carefully fold and pack your items as tightly as you can. A great method for this is rolling your clothes into cylinder shapes. This will give you more space and your clothes won’t be as wrinkled.

3. Minimize
Versatility is key when traveling! It is important to pick items that can be worn multiple ways and with different pieces. Since I’m going to be going somewhere with warm weather I accessed the outfits needed per occasion, as well as setting. For instance,I  packed a dress and top+bottoms that I could mix it up with for walking around or going to the beach.

Hope that helps inspire you! Also, if you are attending C+C reach out in a comment or over social media!! Be sure to check our Facebook and Instagram for updates! :)
