utah & colorado: the essentials

21 Mar

telluride - utah packingTomorrow Dina and I leave for an adventure out west, first spending a few days in Moab, Utah and then heading on to Telluride, Colorado where we will meet up with friends for the week.  I’ve never been to either and like all travel, I’m super excited to explore another part of the world.  Coming off of the photography workshop I took last weekend (more on that later!), I look forward to all of the epic scenery nature has to offer.  Our time in Moab includes sleeping on a ranch, romantic dinners, hiking, and exploring the red rocks in the surrounding national parks.  While in Telluride, it’s about snowboarding/skiing, lodges, the spa, cozy dinners, quality time with friends and checking out the town.  Since the two legs of our trip are completely different in not only activity but temperature too, I was thoughtful when packing to ensure that most items in my suitcase would cross function.  Everything goes from day to night with just the switch of a shoe.  I didn’t want to overpack and needed to be strategic and efficient when deciding what to bring.  When going on a long trip, the best way to optimize space in your bag is by editing down items that can all work together.  Choosing a color story or sticking with a foundation of basics in black, grey or denim will allow for easy outfit making!  And when you’re on vacation and constantly on the go, getting dressed should be a no brainer.  Better to spend the time with your head up, taking notice to what’s going on around you!  With that said, here’s a snapshot of a few essentials, along with this fur vest, chambray shirt, silk cami and black blazer for layering.

I can’t wait to come back with so much goodness to share with you from the trip.  In the meantime, follow along on instagram since I will be posting along the journey as we go!

Have a fantastic weekend and week ahead!  xx jenny
