Packing List for my Southwest Road Trip

Next Stop… The Southwest

Because my husband and I are teachers, and we get the summers off, we try to plan at least one big annual vacation. During our first year of marriage, we explored Nuevo Nayarit in Mexico, the year after that we took on Northern California cramming in Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and San Francisco. Last year was Disney World and the whole Orlando experience, but this year we wanted more out of our trip. We thought it would be pretty cool to take a family road trip exploring the Southwest–West Texas, New Mexico, and ultimately the Grand Canyon.

Planning

The difficult part was planning out what to wear, all while packing pretty lightly (and trust me, this was a challenge for me).

Today, I’m going to give you a glimpse into my packing list–sort of first access to my outfits and accessories before I even blog about them. Take a look at my Lookbook below for a little sneak preview of what you will be seeing on the blog throughout the next couple of weeks. You will definitely see that I specifically chose pieces that can fit into a Southwest kind of lifestyle, as well as an everyday summer lifestyle.

Wish us luck throughout our journey–especially the fact that we are traveling with a 2-year-old in the middle of intense potty training (YIKES!) However, I’m so looking forward to quality time with my family, beautiful scenery, and inspiring all of you, my followers!

Enjoy! And happy Friday!

My Packing List

My Broadway Adventure

My Broadway Adventure Sasha Agent

On Broadway…

Hello Broadway! On today’s video post, I take you on a quick, yet personal tour of my Broadway adventure, and I even set you up with some background information about my incredible best friend, Rebecca Riker, check it out here!

Now you know I won’t leave you hangin’ without sharing my style! I have quite a few NYC looks that I shot in, however, I don’t want to overwhelm you, so let me just start with sharing my Broadway style first.

The Evening Show

My first evening in New York, I got to watch my gorgeous and talented friend perform as her regular role in the ensemble of the hit Broadway show, An American in Paris. She was fabulous of course, so I definitely had to make sure that I rocked a legit Broadway night look.

Check out this stunning Open Back dress from & Other Stories. I styled this dress with a vintage gold velvet clutch from a local couture vintage boutique known as, Vintage Martini. Click here for a similar clutch. My boots are old and from Free People, but here is a similar look. Finally, I make a statement with the tiniest statement necklace by Emlishops, click here for this exact bar necklace.

The Matinée

My next Broadway outfit of the day made a matinée appearance. On this amazing day, I got to witness something incredible–Becky, my friend, played one of the lead roles. No, I don’t think you understand, she was a lead on Broadway! Trust me, this was a big deal! So I actually got to see her perform as two separate roles. She was absolutely beautiful in both, and I am so thankful I got the chance to witness it.

Here I went for more of a retro chic look. I wore a gorgeous tan colored skirt from Chicwish, and a keyhole mock neck top from Free People (see similar here). In order to avoid checking my suitcase, I rocked the same boots from the previous look. To give this look that retro touch, I used my favorite suede fringe tote (see similar here). And to top it off, I rocked my Pelle NYC (@pelle.nyc) fur pom hat that you may have seen here and here. I received so many compliments on this unique look!

My Broadway Adventure Sasha AgentWhat a weekend… My friend is seriously so talented. Not only did she kick butt on Broadway, but she also took many of these photos with the help of her, also amazing, hubby. Who can knock out show after show, cater to house guest, and help a needy blogger friend with pictures? Only one person… and that’s my girl, Rebecca Riker. Love you to pieces friend!

Hope you enjoyed my amazing Broadway Adventure! If you’ll be in the New York area any time soon, you’ve got to see my girl in action–she’s brilliant! And the show, An American in Paris is absolutely beautiful!
