How a Bad Bitch Packs for Vacation

Also featuring: my first attempt at the ‘flat lay’ photo aesthetic.

So, starting tomorrow – Preston and I are going on vacation! Ah! So excited.

If you are not prepared for all the adorable vacation pictures (lake side, of course!) – then go ahead and follow me on instagram to see this cuteness!

We’re headed up to the Adirondacks. I’m hoping to get some sun, some swim, a few nights out, lots of cute pictures, and of course…a spa day. I’ll be posting a vacation blog after we get back. But it’s going to be amazing! Here’s a picture of where we are headed.


Jealous, right?

But as any good fashionista knows – your vacay wardrobe can definitely say a lot about your trip! So in no particular order – here’s my getaway garb!

For reading in the bow of a boat and cruising the waves all day.

For something easy to slip on and off for spa day, trips to the gas station or grocery store, and lake side sharks weeks.

Jammies! For sleeping! And I always find that dragging my stuffed tiger (that I’ve had for almost 20 years) still makes me happy in my grown up years. DON’T JUDGE ME! TIGER IS A GREAT TRAVEL COMPANION. For real, Tiger has been to like 9 countries, 38 states, and a zillion small towns.

Joe Boxer Thrift Polka Dot Sleep Shorts

Tiger. Bad ass. Life partner….but actually a medium sized TY Beanie Baby.

Packable #1

Here’s a couple of must have for every bad bitch heading out of town for the weekend.


Selfie Stick: Obvious Reasons
A great book to fill lazy afternoons and rainy mornings. (Mindy Kaling is so freaking cute)
Sunnies: Heart Shaped makes everything seem rosy.
Tanning Oil: SPF Protection while browning out!
A sturdy pair of flip flops: Easy to slip on and off a the beach!
Spare phone charger. Always.
A little pouch to keep your cell phone, chapstick, keys, etc. while you’re water side.


I’m looking to make a new name for my blog. Clever Little Fox, Frankly My Dear, I’m a Veronica, How Very, Off Key & On Point, Princess Charming?

How Very and Clever Little Fox are my top choices. How Very being a reference to my favorite 80’s movie and one of my fave musicals – Heathers.
