The things that top off an outfit are the jewelry and hair accessories, they fit nicely in one bag. I never know if it's going to be a simple day or a fancy day, so this covers it all. I have the hair accessories for my hair down, pulled back, and a bun.
Statement Necklace, Generic Earrings (held together on a button), Simple Necklace (actually my purity ring on a chain since I can't wear it because it hurts)
Simple Headband, Fancy Headband, Small and Large Bows, Two Hair Ties, Mini Hair Clips, Bobby Pins
It's important to have clothes that are easy to layer, especially when going from hot car full of people to cold outside all day!
T-shirt - My best friend and I both have this shirt, I love you Haley!!
Jeans - These are generic skinny jeans, I will wear them with each of my outfits this weekend.
Sweatshirt - This is my sweatshirt from Caribou, it's super fuzzy and warm. I will also use this with all my outfits!
Running Shoes - I love these shoes, they are so much more comfortable than anything else I own and don't hurt my ankles.
Belt - I always have to jump around and pull these jeans up all day.
Every vacation less than a week only needs one pair of pjs!
Pants - I picked fuzzy pants for this trip since I'll be sleeping in a sleeping bag. My bestie Emily got me these because they have pockets!! You know you're jealous!
Matching Top - I call these pj sweaters! I'm super obsessed.
T-shirt - Sometimes the pj sweater is too warm so I layer.
Socks - I anticipate being cold so I'm bringing my favorite fuzzy socks to keep my tootsies warm!
For the other two days I just brought two other shirts and matching accessories
Sweater Shirt - I love this shirt because it's warm and basic, it looks great with everything.
Cozy Shirt - I'm going to need a shirt for the last day of the trip, which will also be a travel day, so I chose a cozy shirt. This one is long sleeves but it's an athletic shirt so it isn't too warm.
Matching Jewelry- You've already seen this earlier!
Everything but the boots will be with my in the car. The boots will be in my luggage.
Warm Coat - My tip for buying coats: buy one with a fuzzy inside, it'll stay warm on the inside unlike a traditional ski coat.
Scarf - I'm crazy about the infinity scarves, they're so much easier to wear, I don't have to think about which side is longer!
Gloves - These gloves are $5 from target, they have special string in thumb and index fingers so I can use them with my iPhone!
Knit Wrap - I will always choose this over a hat. This is just as warm, and I can wear it with ponytails and buns, which I need!
Boots - I anticipate snow in Colorado, not so great for running shoes.
