Okay, it's time to start thinking about what I'm bringing to BlogHer 2014. Last year I think I did pretty good in terms of what I packed, but I couldn't help but feel as though I could have done better. Here's what I think I'm going to do this time around:
First, I was very happy with my decision to wear flat shoes for the parties. Will definitely be purchasing another pair of black flats for this year's parties. This is especially necessary this time around because I'm dealing with a newly diagnosed case of plantar faciitis. Awesome- NOT! The rest of the conference I'll probably be in the comfiest shoes I can find. I'm thinking tennis shoes.
As for day wear. Jeans it is! I'll be wearing an Elite Travel shirt during the days because I want to promote the business I blog a lot for. By the way- if you need any kind of travel- call Elite Travel at 866-726-9090 and tell them The Famous Ashley Grant sent you. Seriously! They offer a price match guarantee, they protect you better than the online booking sites and they are just plain amazing!
Night wear. I'll most likely wear a dress again to each of the parties. Last year I had these awesome dresses that folded up to hardly anything in my suitcase. All I had to do was hang them during the day before wearing them and they didn't really have any wrinkles! (Note to self- get more of THOSE types of dresses)
That's really it in terms of clothes. Of course I'll bring something to sleep in, but I can't think of a reason to bring more clothes than this...
As for luggage- last year someone told me to be sure and bring an empty duffle bag for all the swag I would likely receive. Thank goodness I listened to this or I would have found myself buying a bag to go home with. I was in awe of how many brands gave me stuff without me even having to ask for it. It's that stuff that has provided me with a lot of review content lately. LOVE IT!
I'll skip the jewelry this year because it was more of a hassle than it was worth. Or I'll just bring costume jewelry that I don't mind throwing away.
