What I’m packing for my weekend getaway to New Orleans! ✈️

Good morning and happy Monday you guys! 

My trip to New Orleans is 24 days away and you know I always love to plan ahead with everything because it makes me feel more organized. So I thought I’d go ahead and think about what I’m packing for those 3 days especially since we decided to go to the beach! 

I think I’m going to bring 4-5 outfits total to wear out in case I need to change or I’m not feeling it. So for those I will have to go shopping for, but this is how I am imagining it to be. 

  • two dresses (need to buy some pretty ones)
  • pair of jeans
  • leggings
  • 4 pairs of shirts, can be casual or fancy 
  • 4 pairs of shoes
    • converse
    • wedges
    • sandals
    • flip flops for the beach
  • swimsuit (need to buy a new one from Target soon unless my old ones can fit)
  • beach cover-up
  • sunglasses (need to buy a nice pair because I just gave mine to my mom)
  • possibly a cute sun hat
  • my pjs (a shirt and shorts)
  • an outfit to travel in for the car ride

I think that’s about all the clothes/accessories I should be bringing since we will just be gone for 3 days. I always overdo it, but I guess you can never have too many back up clothes right?! 

Some of the other things I’ll probably pack in my purse or book bag is my Kindle for the car ride so I can read my book, my planner (maybe, not sure if I want to carry this around yet), chapstick, wallet, my camera + charger, phone charger, and my camera stick. Want to carry around a light book bag, so I’m either going to use one of my older ones or get myself another one! I have been eyeing this Coach one, but I’m not 100% sure if I want to buy it yet. 

What are some essentials you guys pack on a short trip like this? Should I bring anything else?! Let me know in the comments 🙂

 

Day Update/Wednesday March 21, 2018 ✨

Hello!

So I got my braces off, woohoo!! It feels awesome, but my bottom teeth are a little sore so I decided to take off my retainer for today until I go to sleep tonight. Right now I’m attempting to do my micro homework and then I will try to catch up on notes I missed from today and if I’m not able to, I’ll just do it after class tomorrow. 

I have so much to do with school in such little time. Tomorrow me and Adisa have to go buy our cap and gowns after class so finally we can get that over with. I have to start studying for my micro test which is sometime next week and really focus on making sure I understand my financial management class so I do good on the next exam. 

I also need to find outfits and stuff for my trips so I’ll probably do that when I finish that exam and find a white dress after that too. Then I just have some little things to finish before I leave like changing my oil and planning out what we’re gonna do!

NEWEST UPDATE:

Hi! 

So I meant to post this yesterday and never got around to doing it. My teeth were so sore from my retainers this morning, it sucks. But I’m eating the cookies Mirhad got me yesterday 😋 and I’m watching This is Us. I have to go grocery shopping soon and then I’m going to spend the rest of the day catching up on chapter 9. I really need to get motivated to get back into the school mode because I still feel like I am on spring break lol. 

So I went to class this morning, me and Adisa carpooled and got a bagel on the way to school (yum). Then after class we went and got our cap and gowns, so exciting! Now we have to think of ideas to put on our caps, there are some fun ones we found on Pinterest. 

So yeah that’s pretty much it, about to go to Aldi with my mom and buy food and buy some chairs she wants for the living room. 

Seeeee ya! 🙂
