Weekend Getaway Packing

Friday night I leave for NOLA and I couldn't be more excited! I fell in love with the city about 7 years ago when I was there for a youth convention and I've been itching to get back! Some of my favorite females are going to celebrate my 21st birthday with me!

It is going to be HOT this weekend. In Wisconsin it gets hot, but from experience it's nothing like NOLA hot.

I'll be wearing sun dresses, t-shirts & shorts in order to combat the heat. For going out at night I brought a couple of dresses, but I'm not sure which one will work best. It won't be that much cooler at night, so I'm hoping this works. A little naive of me I'm sure, but I bringing some workout clothes too. The chances of me using them are slim, but it's the thought right? Since we'll be going out, clutches are a must.  I actually plan on picking up a new cross body because I don't have any cute ones that weren't destroyed in Europe. Sunscreen is a must, but since I'm packing a carry on, I'll have to buy a bottle when I'm in NOLA. I love Neutregena  & Aveeno's sunscreen, I highly recommend it! They aren't oily and at a great cost! I'm bringing all of my regular beauty supplies because I don't really use that many.

What do you pack? Are you taking any fun trips this summer?



  1. Have so much fun girl!
    I grew up about 30 minutes away from New Orleans but moved to Texas my junior year of high school so I never got to experience Bourbon Street as a legal adult.
    Have a hurricane (or a hand grenade) or two for me!

    Also, you MUST go to Cafe Du Monde if you already haven't!

  2. Good call on the sun dresses. I also pack workout clothes when I travel! (Running is my favorite way to explore!) I'll be visiting British Columbia for a music festival in August!
    Have fun on your trip!!

  6. I won't have time for any trips this summer since I'm in my last quarter of undergrad, but I will be moving to the South and the heat will be a huge factor haha. Enjoy your trip and your 21st!
