perfect packing

I am off on a mini-vacay to Vegas tomorrow to celebrate my hubby's 30th birthday!  Packing for a trip has never been my forte.  I always dread the task, as I never know what to pack.  It is hard to plan in advance and know what you will want or need once you arrive at your destination.  Soooo, I tend to "over-pack" - sigh!  Recently, I have become determined to become a better packer.  With a little help from Lauren Conrad, I hope that my suitcase is perfectly packed for this trip.  In Lauren's Style book she provides packing checklists for a variety of different trips destinations and lengths of travel

Here is her packing checklist for...
...a weekend getaway to somewhere warm (like Vegas!):

2 party dresses
(you can't wear the same thing twice)
1 pair of going-out shoes
(these should be comfortable, since your nights will likely be long--and involve dancing!)
1 sundress
(to wear during the days--it should be a basic color, like black or white, so you can camouflage it with different accessories)
1 big hat
(optional--these can be a pan to travel with)
1 pair of sunglasses
1 pair of flip flops
1 cotton scarf
2 necklaces
1 pair of flats
(for your abused feet the day after a big night)
1 pair of jeans
2 cute tops
1 pair of pajamas
(for sleeping in until noon and ordering room service in comfort!)

{giveaway winner will be announced tomorrow - get your entries in!}
