I've posted about packing before (here, here, and with the help of Sierra here), yet I always bring way too much on every single trip. For example, I'm only going to be in Austin for two nights, yet I've put together four outfits. But, come on, who knows what I'll actually WANT to wear when I get there. It's important to have options, no? Plus, it's going to rain on Friday and then get up to the 90s on Saturday and Sunday, so I need to be prepared for all types of weather conditions. See? There's a method to my madness.

At any rate, I need to make sure I give credit to the bajillion other bloggers out there who have posted their outfits this way pre-vacay. I thought it was a good idea, especially since I'll be having way too much fun with Chris to think about blogging. Don't you fret, though -- I've got more guest posts lined up to keep you entertained while I'm gone!

So, what do you think -- did I miss anything in my packing process? Which look is your fave? What are some great spots to visit in Austin? Shoot me a tweet and lemme know!
