Sometimes going on vacation can actually be quite stressful. I end up working so much before and after that I wonder… am I better off just not taking the vacation at all? I’m in that mode right now for only a few vacation days… just working away. I’m sure you’ve all been there.
While I know the rest of this week is going to be quite busy, I’m really excited because one of my closest friends Lauren is coming to visit and we’re going on a few trips around CA. This weekend, we’ll be heading up far north in wine country to Calistoga where we’re planning to take advantage of the hot springs. There will be one day that we’ll spend mostly at the hot springs, pool, maybe even the spa and the other drinking plenty of vino.
The nice thing about having the blog is that I can use it to keep my life on track with certain things, and this time it is with my packing list for the weekend. With weekend trips, I try to keep it to a minimal. But there is always that balance between packing light and having enough to look good. Neutral and versatile shoes and handbags that can be used throughout the weekend are key, and then I build my outfits around that.
