Packing For A Long Weekend

A few weeks ago Nine West came over to my apartment and asked me to share my packing tips for a long weekend trip and a week long Thanksgiving trip (watch that video here.) When I’m packing for a long weekend trip I try to avoid bringing a big suitcase (although I usually do because I’m an over-packer!) and instead try to pack everything in a duffle bag or oversized tote.  I always pack a pair of skinny jeans, a striped sweater, a chambray shirt, a floppy hat, a cozy vest for layering, a silk blouse that can easily be dressed up/down, a jumpsuit (this Theory one is a favorite), and 3 different pairs of shoes; flats, boots, heels.  I wore these boots during the shoot and am officially obsessed with them. They’re so comfortable, flattering, and are a great, affordable alternative to these boots!

    So fun! I love your picks and I guess the only way for hats to not crush is to wear them. :)

    Hi Kat, Love this video! I’ve been looking for a tote like the one you have in the video. What brand is it or where did you get it from? Thanks!
